Minnesota Lake Resort: Ruttger’s Bay Lake Lodge

by RodNRifleMN on July 1, 2011

Fishing in Minnesota’s lakes is a favorite summer past time for many people. Before you head out on your fishing adventure, there are a few things to remember and a few tips to soak up. To get the most out of your fishing trip, check out these helpful hints.

Even before you head out on the water, make sure your boat is equipped for a fishing trip. Grab your life jackets, safety equipment, fishing poles, fishing net, bait and tackle box, sunscreen, snacks and beverages to ensure maximum time spent out on the lake. It might also be helpful to look up what kinds of fish are popular in the lake you are fishing on to adjust your fishing gear accordingly.

While fishing can be an exciting sport, it does require a lot of patience. Not every fishing trip will result in tons of fish being caught and when you do catch a fish, it might be after hours of repeated casting and reeling in. Be prepared to spend some time out on the lake to really get the whole fishing experience.

Even though catching a fish is great, part of fishing is the time spent enjoying the experience. Sitting in a boat, hearing the sound of the waves against the boat, enjoying the openness of being on the water is something everyone should experience, regardless of whether or not they catch a fish. So when you go fishing, enjoy the small stuff so that you can truly remember your fishing experience fondly.
