Centerpinning is a very unique fishing method.
This technique has become quite popular, despite the fact
it has been around for nearly 200 years. It is a method of
float fishing that uses a long rod and a drag-free reel. The
free running spool gives you a greater natural drift for a
longer distance and requires rigging with a few small split
shots underneath a float bobber. It is one of the most difficult
techniques in all of fishing. This method can also be use
with a spinning reel/rod set up. The natural drift of the
float is essential in hooking the fish.
Another effective fishing method by
using a spinner or spoon lure on a spinning reel and rod setup.
It works best in the beginning of a run when fresh, aggressive
fish are in. We recommend changing a variety of different
colors of lures for higher success.
Fly fishing was first used for trout fishing.
A common method that is quite difficult to master. This method
is used by many for panfish, bass, and a variety of other
species. It consists of using a fly floating line or sinking
tip line with a 8’-10’ leader (depending on the depth of the
water) and a tippet which the flies are attached to. Similar
to Spin Fishing, it is recommended to use a variety of colors
or flies for the best result.
Fly fishing has become quite popular in the United States in the past hundred years, however some scholars believe the history of the sport goes back as far as the 2nd century. The Roman historian Claudius Aelianus may have been the first to record Macedonians using fake flies made from wool and feathers to catch fish. It was in England and Scotland where the modern sport begin to take shape. Then, in the 1800s the sport began to spread in America as anglers in the Catskill Mountains began using the technique.
