7. Positive Attitude


This one plagued all of us at some point. As kids our fathers would tell us “we weren’t holding our mouth right,” meaning we didn’t have a positive outlook on the fishing or lack of fish. Many Fishbrain anglers  surveyed agreed with having a negative attitude jinxing their fishing.

  • “Leave the bad mood at home, the fish can tell and won’t come” – Jlambert8429
  • “Know and follow the fishing regulations, wherever you go. It’s good karma” – Captain-Kirk1, New Jersey
  • “I say hello to everyone I pass on the way to the fishing spot.” – HighSteppin
