We love to fish, and we love to chill out.
But then again, fishing almost is inherently lazy. I mean, technological advances are all about doing work for us. When it comes down to it, you can basically fall asleep while fishing, and only wake up during a few exciting moments. Things can move pretty slow, especially when they aren’t biting.
So I guess we really are all lazy at one time or another. Here are the 10 tips for lazy fisherman like us!
10. Take a seat.
Why stand when you can sit?
9. Bring a beverage.
All of that water can sure make an angler thirsty!

8. Drift fishing.
Give the boat a break and your driving arm. Lean back, cast a line.
Bring a snack and stay out on the water longer. Don’t let your stomach shorten the trip.
6. Bring a flashlight.
Not only can you find your way back after dark to fish longer, you can place the light beam on the water to draw fish in.
5. Bring a bell.
No kidding, get a little bell to tie to your fishing pole so when you get a bite, you will get a dinner bell ring.
4. Fish with a friend who has a boat.
He can do all the work since its his boat, and you can fish.
3. Observe successful anglers.
A quick casual conversation with them can yield the right bait, tactics and locations.
2. Fish for all species.
A good ol’ worm can still knock em dead. Why just target one species?
1. Shop the bait store.
One stop shopping for worms, minnows, snack foods and birthday presents.
