Picking up fishing as a new hobby so I can spend more time in the outdoors and away from the TV. The more I read about it, the more interested I become. For starters I have no intention of keeping any fish, and I will be catch and release ONLY. I don't care what kind of fish I catch. Right now I have become somewhat efficient at casting and able to place crank-bait in the general vicinity of the body of water in front of me, AND I am getting pretty good at removing hooks from whatever body parts of mine they decide to embed themselves in.
I'm not finding much information about "Proper/ Widely Accepted Fishing Protocol" between fishermen sharing a spot or how much room you give your fellow fisherman. I don't want to barge in and ruin another fisherman's day. When/if its cool to approach a fisherman for chat.
I don't have a boat, so all my fishing will be from the bank. I am interested in any/all fishing locations (ponds/rivers/lakes) and what I can expect to catch from those locations, and what kind of lures or bait I should take in order to land fish. I know a lot of this is subjective, but would like to increase my chances of catching something.
