Fall is considered the most ideal season for fishing as the population of fish species like redfish, trout, and flounder are the highest during the months of October, November, and early December. Moreover, it is said that cooler temperatures during these months bring many fish up to the surface as described in a recent news release from the Vermont Department of Fishing and Wildlife:
“As water temperatures cool off, many different fish species begin to feed heavily,” said Shawn Good, fisheries biologist with Vermont Fish & Wildlife. “From warm water species such as largemouth and smallmouth bass, northern pike, perch, and walleye, to cold water species like trout and salmon, fish feeding activity really picks up across the board and creates exceptional fishing conditions for anglers.”
While the hot temperatures of summer can sometimes make fishing slow, the autumn months represent a transition time where fish generally become more active and easier to catch. This increase in feeding activity can be attributed to fish boosting their reserves of essential nutrients in order to sustain themselves during the winter when their metabolism slows and they feed less.
With fall drawing closer, it is expected that many professional and budding fishermen will be heading over to the pristine waters of the Green Mountain State to have themselves a good time. That in mind, they will need to have a trusted boat which they can use to cruise rivers or go to the center of lakes for a better chance at reeling in the fish they want. Dealers of brand-new and used Bennington pontoon boats for sale, such as White’s Marine Center, can help fishing enthusiasts find the kind of boat that suits their specific needs.
These dealers can offer quality Bennington pontoon boats as these water vessels carry the right kind of hull and engine appropriate for recreational fishers and boaters who are thinking of hitting Vernon’s lakes and rivers during the fall season. They have an ample stock of pontoon brands so people can make better choices and even offer both brand-new and used boats for those who might be on a tight budget. For used boats, they make sure that they are in good and usable states before they sell them to the public.
Fall is definitely one of the best loved seasons in the country and people should choose this time of the year to go on relaxing fishing trips in Vermont or for a fun boating ride in the state.
