Cover Water (3 of 5)
This point pretty much goes hand-in-hand with the fan-casting and the top/middle/bottom sections above. When you get the chance to fish from a boat, how often do you stay in the exact same spot? Probably a lot less than moving and grooving, looking for that hotspot. Once you find something that looks good or is producing fish, you go into lockdown and work things as hard as necessary.
Well, the same goes for shore anglers. Why would you stand in one spot for hours on end unless you’re catching fish? Depending on the land you are fishing from, fan cast from a particular spot, work all levels of the water column and then move 20ish feet in either direction and similarly work the new area.
Even if you’re at a cottage, once you finish fishing from the dock, walk down the shoreline and hit new water. If the neighbours love you, they’ll certainly let you access the water from their property as well.
