Noticing patterns of fish behavior is important to consistently catching fish. Document your Efforts!
I have been collecting data for the last eight years. I keep track of everything from lure used, weather, water temperature, retrieve speed, water quality, wind, moon phase and tide. Fishing is a lot of luck, but there is a definite science to it. I can refer to my Field Notes when I'm trying to catch fish at a later date and improve my chances.
