First time fishing
Posted by: futuresmart on Jun-22-12 9:48 AM (EST)
I have a 16' canoe and I am going to go fishing with my buddy for the first time this weekend! I need lots of advice from the experts here.
I used to ride kayaks but it will be my first time paddling canoes this weekend.
I think the lake I am going to has some small mouth bass, lake trout and etc. (Massabesic lake in Manchester, NH)
Ok, here's the question. What do I need to buy? Since it's my first time fishing, I have no idea what fishing gears to get. Can you guys list the items that I will need? I don't want to spend lots of money because I am only going to go fishing maybe once a month?

a decent Medium action 1 piece 6-7' spinning rod/reel with 8lb test mono.Cabelas,BPS,etc offer complete outfits in all price ranges.For lures some 4&6" plastic worms,spinnerbaits and a topwater popper.Bass like black,chartreuse colored lures most often.Trout like small spinners like those from Blue Fox in gold and silver.Good luck!
That's good advice|
