THE FISHING PAGE
It doesn’t matter if you don’t know a baitcaster from your backside or if your commitment to fishing falls squarely into the I’ll-sleep-when-I’m-dead category—we’ve got tips and tricks for every angler out there. Our fishing experts are on the water all-year-long and will walk you through the tactics that work for every species in every season. Our freshwater species tips will cover classic gamefish like largemouth bass, smallmouth, crappie, perch, pike, muskies, walleye, trout, catfish, and more. We also cover the species that others might consider trash fish, including carp, snakehead, and gar, because we know hardcore anglers like to fish for it all.
If saltwater is your game, you’ll find articles on catching everything from stripers to redfish and offshore targets like tuna and swordfish. If your niche is bowfishing or fishing from a kayak, we’ve got you covered. Keep your eye out for our annual tackle test, where we put the latest new spinning and baitcasting rods and reels through the wringer so you know where to save or spend your hard-earned cash. In the meantime, keep up with the latest fishing gear recommendations and our definitive roundups of the greatest baits and flies to help you catch your favorite species.
