One of the easier fish to catch, especially in the spring time. They like to sun themselves in shallow, warmer bays in the spring. As the summer goes on they go a bit deeper as well, but you can catch them all year long by casting baits towards shore. You’ll often catch northern while bass and walleye fishing. They can be a nuisance if you aren’t fishing for them specifically because they can bite you’re line off if you don’t have a leader on. But never fish with a leader if you aren’t specifically fishing for northern. These are also an excellent tasting fish, but many people throw them back because they have a set of “Y” bones that are a bit more difficult to fillet around, but if done properly, northern can rival walleye in the tasting category.
The Fishing Rod holds your Reel which in turn holds your line. A length of fishing line is threaded along a long, flexible rod or pole; one end terminates in a hook for catching the fish, while most of the rest of the line is wound around a reel at the base of the pole. The pulley-like arrangement of the reel allows the fish to be "reeled in" once caught.
Pulling in a trophy catch this summer is easy once you have the right fishing equipment. Tackling your next big trip is impossible without the proper planning, preparation, and fishing supplies. Whether you want to catch fish in the lake close to home or the deep sea, Sportsman’s Warehouse has the fishing tools to ensure that you’re landing one right after another.
