Now I know a large portion of people probably won't do this, whether it be because you don't have time due to work, kids, inadequate space to practice, etc... It will certainly increase your odds if you tie a hookless bait, key, or casting plug to the end of your line and practice pitching into a coffee can/garbage can, practice casting distance, etc. If you don’t have the time to practice on your own off of the water, then you can still always practice while you're out on the water. Set goals! Make it your goal to make that challenging cast under the overhanging tree! Sure, you might get caught in the tree, and it might result in some cursing and swearing; but it will make you a better angler, which will in-turn yield more fish! Challenge yourself, and don't be intimidated by the overhanging tree that is just begging for you to snag your lure into it – make the cast.
Sometimes you've gotta risk it to get the biscuit!
High percentage areas can be risky.. and are often along the shoreline!
So there you have it folks! There's 5 tips that can hopefully bring you all a little more success while fishing on the banks/shoreline. Get out there, put in your time, and make it happen!
Have fun, Stay Safe, and Happy Fishing!
