How To Cast From a Boat


With National Fishing and Boating Week right around the corner (June 1–June 9), now is a good time to tune up your vessel and plan a fishing trip. If you’re mentoring a new angler or are a novice yourself, Andy Whitcomb offers five tips for learning to cast from a boat.

“One of the great parts of fishing from a boat is that you are going closer to the fish. Sometimes, you may even find yourself directly over fish. Long, forceful casts may not be necessary. A stealthy approach will be helpful too. Save the loud voices for the celebratory “Yee-ha!” for after landing that big one.”
