When in the Wild and confused. #4753

If an animal ever attacks you, don't run like its prey. Whenever you get lost at night and you can see the Big Dipper, put your thumb on the top of the pot’s star and spread your fingers out, your little finger will be next to the North Star, which never moves. When facing north, West will always be to your left and East to your right. South will always be behind you. During the day, draw a circle and put a stick in the middle. The sticks shadow will give you direction following the movements of the sun. When there's no shadow, noon,(half way point), you'll have North and South. When facing north, remember West, East that always spells WE.

Drag Setting #6027

A common mistake made by anglers is having their drag set improperly. Most manufacturers recommend that drag be set to one-third of your line's test weight. This means that a reel holding 12 pound test line should have the drag set to let out line at 4 pounds of pull. To set your drag, run the line out through your rod's guides, tie a loop in the end, then use the hook on a fish scale (the tool, not on a fish) to pull on the line. When the weight shown on the scale is one-third of your rated line weight, the drag should be letting out line. If not, adjust the drag until it does.

Creating your own worm supply #6029

Buying worms from a tackle shop can start to get expensive after awhile. A much easier way is just to grow them on your own using a compost heap. They are easy to make or you can buy them from most garden shops. Once you have a couple worms in them, just feed them veggie and kitchen scraps and they’ll multiply in no time. Even something as simple as a bucket with some holes drilled in the bottom should do it. Just give them a decent food supply and they’ll give you plenty of bait.

Weather or not to go fishing #6019

As the old sayings go...
Red sky in morning, fisherman take warning (bad weather is coming).
Red sky at night, fisherman's delight (the weather the following day will be good.
Keep an eye on the barometer. If it is dropping the weather will likely worsen and will be no good for fishing. If temperatures are hot for many days in a row, fish will dive deeper into cooler depths and be more difficult to catch. If temperatures are cooler, it’s easier to find fish near the surface of the water.
