Writing a fishing blog is fun and easy, and it can be truly helpful and entertaining to your fellow fishermen.  Every fisherman and woman has some fishing tip or technique that is different from the next person’s and sharing these little “how to” ideas with others can help with their fishing success, no matter how small of a tip you might think it is.  And best of all, there are now fishing sites out there like Fishnfools.com ( http://www.fishnfools.com ) that let you jump right into the mix of fishing bloggers by writing stories and posting them on their site in just a minute without having to design, set up, host, and manage a blog site.  Sites such as Fishnfools.com already have a web presents and a platform for your blog to reach the fishing community without taking years to have your blog recognized and found by the search engines.  After all, you are here now, aren’t you!

When writing a fishing blog, the first place to start is to sit back and think about some of the types of fishing that you are interested in, the places that you like to fish, the baits and lures that you use, and all the other activities that come along with the sport.  Perhaps you know how to repair a fishing real from when yours broke when you were in a remote area or you made a makeshift bow and arrows or frog gig one day.  These are fun and interesting and the subjects can be unlimited!  And, never rule out what you think is obvious and standard.  For instance, I fish black bass a little and have my whole life but I have never been serious at it like some devoted bass fishermen.  I fish with other fishermen now and then and read blogs on the net and every time I turn around there is a new lure, way to work an old lure, or new information that I had no idea about.  In that community, they all look at this stuff as old hack, but every day people like me are taking up different types of fishing and becoming more serious about the ones we already enjoy.  Writing a fishing blog is your contribution to those of us who are on the quest to learn more about our hobby!

When I first started writing, I had no clue how to write a fishing blog.  Then I wrote a story about something that I love, which is spear fishing for ling cod.  I have been diving and spear fishing for over 35 years and I had no idea just how much I did know about it until I put it on paper.  This fishing blog covers everything from using a snorkel, weighting yourself, chumming, safety tips, and much more.  Then I wrote one about abalone diving, which I love.  Same thing, it turns out that a 2000 word fishing blog flew out of my mind.  Then someone has to learn to clean the fish and abalone and I have had some dangerous encounters in my diving years, which lead to another one.  I like to fish sturgeon, striped bass, and even bluegill along with frog gig and catch crawfish.  I have some funny stories from my past fishing adventures and you do too and every fisherman loves to hear those and wallow in someone else’s humorous misfortune!  

The trick with writing a fishing blog is to just start writing a story and, trust me, it will come right to you.  There are no complicated tricks on how to write a fishing blog other than finding a place to do it and even that has become moot with fishing blog sites like Fishnfools.com.  Your first blog can be out there being read by fellow fishermen in minutes.

The best way to write a fishing blog is to write it on your computer in your word processor with the spell check and other tools and then copy it and paste it into the blog site after it is finished.  Make sure you run the spell check as it is hard for blog readers to take you seriously if your fishing blog is full of misspellings and grammar mistakes.  Remember to “save” your article right when you start it and while you are writing it so if you lose power or get some computer glitch that you don’t lose it as that can be frustrating.

When you enter your blog into the blog site, make sure you fill in the “tags” box so people can search for and find your fishing blog articles based upon what they are about.  If it is a how to catch crappie article, put keywords such as “how to catch crappie, crappie fishing, crappie, lake fishing, etc.” in there so folks can easily access it by subject matter.  Google and the other search engines will “read” your blog and supply it to searchers by what your write, but those visiting the site will be using a tag search to find the type of fishing blog they are looking for.  On an active site, like Fishnfools.com, the search engine crawlers are crawling it daily and your article is likely to be indexed right away.

Now you know how to write a fishing blog and all that is left for you to do is open that word processor and get to writing.  Try it and you will see just how easy and fun it is.  I love it as it lets me re-live all of my fishing and outdoors experiences in detail.  Now, you are a fishing blog writing pro!  Good luck!
