Check Your Fishing Tackle

I have some advice for you, check your fishing tackle before you find your fishing hole.

  • Check the fishing line on your pole, is weak and need replacement?
  • Check your fishing reel, is it rusty or jammed?
  • What about your fishing pole? Ask yourself, is this the right fishing pole for the fish you are trying to catch.
  • What about your fishing lures? Are they fresh look and do have some of the newest models?
  • Last but not least, do you hooks, leads, and a fishing knife?

Have you thought about camping? If you have or would like to consider, check out all of the New York Campsites.
