Putting the rod down for a few minutes and just looking around (and more specifically watching fish in the water) is a great way to catch more fish. Watching fish swim naturally in the water, stalk and strike baitfish, and go about their normal business is a great info to have when it's time to catch them.
It may be hard to sit and watch a redfish tail down a bank or a snook silently creep up on a unsuspecting mullet; but sit back and watch. Next time it's time to catch him, you'll be ready!
