• Silence Is Golden: Most know the rule about no stomping, slamming lids, slushing cooler ice or dropping jig heads, but also consider the inadvertent operational sounds such as snapping a bail shut, closing a tackle box latch or laying a Push-Pole on the deck. With bails, latches and the like, control the movement through
its completion to minimize the sonic crescendo. And laying a beach towel on the stern provides a soft, noise-dampening contact point for resting the Push-Pole.
Remember, your opportunities will often number fewer than those of blind-casting, so make the most of every shot your sight-fishing efforts afford.
