adrenaline rush of catching your first fish, it is truly one of the best
experiences out there. However, it is important to follow North Carolina

Many people see fishing as a fun pastime, but
did you know that fishing actually has many physical and mental health benefits
as well? From increasing vitamin D intake to reducing stress levels, fishing
provides a large range of benefits for personal health which makes it good for
the body and mind.
are five health benefits of fishing:
Increase in vitamin D intake:Whether it’s a sunny or cloudy day, one can get vitamin D while fishing. Vitamin D plays a vital role in boosting our immune systems and keeping our bones healthy. It also helps regulate moods and can make people happier overall.
Provides exercise:Fishing is surprisingly a great, low-impact exercise. It engages a person’s shoulders, back, arms, core, and legs. Research shows that just being outdoors also encourages a healthier lifestyle.
Improves blood pressure: Spending time fishing has been shown to decrease a person’s blood pressure. Being surrounded by nature for even just 30 minutes lowers blood pressure and improves overall health by reducing the risk of having a heart attack or stroke.
Boosts concentration: Over time, studies have shown that adults have far shorter attention spans than in previous decades. By unplugging and directing their attention toward fishing, individuals can boost their short-term concentration. Throughout many fishing sessions, people can improve their long-term concentration over time.
Reduces stress: Many people are aware of the relaxation that fishing brings. Fishing relieves pressure and stress that one might feel. Similar to meditation, fishing takes a person’s mind off of any internal thoughts or stress.
Fishing is an activity everyone can enjoy and
provides health benefits for all ages. If you and your family are looking to
rent a fishing boat, consider Motor Boatin’.

Before we share our four favorite things to do, we want to share a few honorable mentions. We also love hiking, swimming, boating (non-gasoline powered), and checking out the beaver dams at Falls Lake.
While spending the weekend at Falls Lake, our favorite four things to do at the lake are:
Boating: Our pontoon boats are the peak of Falls Lake. Many individuals coming out to Falls Lake to enjoy Falls Lake Recreation will end up renting one of our boats to spend the day on the lake.
Jet Skis: One of the best ways to enjoy the water and break up the day on pontoon boats or fishing is to rent a jet ski. Our jet skis are available in half-day or whole day rentals.
Fishing: Falls lake is known for its amazing fishing. Having five different types of fish including largemouth bass and two types of catfish puts Falls lake a few steps ahead of any other regular fishing spot. There are also multiple ways to fish at Falls Lake. Renting a motorboat or paddle/ non-gasoline boat are the two most popular ways.
Camping: Many of our boat renters want to spend more time on the boats or want one day to enjoy jet skis. For those individuals, we really suggest camping in the Falls Lake Grounds. It’s a great way to enjoy both boats and jet skis.

Falls Lake is well-known for its large-mouth bass during fishing seasons, and the Raleigh anglers are always eager to get out and cast their lines. At Motor Boatin’ we commonly see individuals renting a fishing boat to go out and enjoy the waters and the fish.
Since they spend so much time on the lake, they know a few tips and tricks to navigate the waters and catch the best bass. So, we thought it would be great to let them share what they know!
5 tips to catch the best large-mouth bass this summer at Falls Lake are:
Use Old Worms. Bass are the type to go for wounded prey, so a plastic worm that’s a bit worn and shredded is perfect for luring them in. No old lures? Simply take a new one and shred it to make it more appealing.
Use Sharp Hooks. Some anglers like to keep their hooks super sharp when bass fishing since they tend to have stronger jaws than other smaller fish. It is easy for them to thrash around and remove a dull hook that’s loosely attached.
Face the Wind. Bass swim with the current, so take note of which direction the wind is blowing from and cast into it. While the bass swim with the wind, they’ll be less spooked by the boat since they’ll come across the bait first.
Check the Falls Lake Fishing Report. There are many websites that provide detailed fishing reports including comments from recent visitors. Browse for reports of Falls Lake before heading out to be sure of prime feeding times and other important details noted by residents.
Keep Trying. When all else fails and the lines aren’t pulling, just keep trying. Bass can be hard to lure, but they aren’t impossible to catch. There’s plenty of space at Falls Lake to roam around and there’s sure to be a sweet spot!
