First approach the lake with caution, walk softly, keep your shadow off the water, and avoid kicking any rocks. Fish can sense tiny movements on the shore and see large shadows on the water. Make sure to cast in a natural manner and keep your casting motion low. The best time to fish is in the early morning or at dusk when the light is best. During the middle of the day the harsh sunlight will penetrate the water which will scare the fish. Try these tips and maybe you can catch some fish with just a can, some line, and a hook.
