Choosing The Perfect Fishing Trip Destination - Articles Surfing

One of the first things you must do to plan a great fishing trip is to identify your priorities. You need to be more specific than just saying you want great fishing. Great fishing may mean different things to each person in your fishing party.

One person might be happy with catching 20 fish per day, while another might be expecting 20 fish per hour. So, you need to decide this up front.

Let's take a look at some of the most important things to consider when deciding where to go on your fishing trip.

What type of fish do you want to catch?

While this may seem obvious, it is something that needs to be discussed. One person may want to fish for walley and northern pike, while others may want to go bass fishing. Since many northern lakes have water too cold for bass, you may end up at a lake that would really disappoint the bass fisherman.

Do you want tons of action? Or trophy fish?

Some anglers simply enjoy catching lots of fish with the hope of getting a few big ones. Other fishermen are dead set only on catching the biggest fish they can find. You need to decide which is more important to your fishing group... lots of fish or fewer fish but a greater chance of a really big one.

How are you going to catch them?

Do you like to troll? Drift? Fish in streams? Deep water fish?

We've seen people trolling in 60 feet of water thinking the fish were only a few feet from the surface. Not much chance of catching anything this way. Be sure you know the type of fishing you prefer and that the lake will offer it.

What do you want to spend?

The price you're willing to pay will have a great impact on the type of fishing trip you'll have.

Be realistic. How much do you really want to spend? Are you comfortable in a tent or tar-paper shack on a lake with great fishing?

Or would you prefer staying at a more upscale fishing lodge?

Do you want to cook for yourself... or do you want the fishing camp to do the cooking?

And what about shower facilities? Are you willing to use a community shower or do you want a private shower in your own cabin. Gentlemen, if you're taking your spouse absolutely make sure you consider this one. If you don't, it could spoil your trip.

Other considerations are how long the trip will be and the type of fish you are looking to catch. A trip to a fishing lodge on a lake with panfish and bass will likely be much cheaper than a trip to Alaska or Northern Canada for arctic char.

So, if you really want a great fishing trip, start by planning just exactly you want out of the trip and how much you are willing to spend. Do it right and you can have the fishing trip of a lifetime.
