5 Way To Fish

1. Base Fishing

Goal is to find the fish that live on the bottom floor of the stream, lake, ocean or sea. You are going to find Snappers, Groupors or Seam Breams. You can use a pole or a hand line to Bottom Fish.

2. Trolling

Trolling is about fishing bigger fish. Fish like Marlins, Swordfish, and tuna, are the types you will find on the top of the water. Get your fishing boat to move continious while you sit on the back of the fishing boat and fish them out .

3. Fly Fishing

Fly Fishing is for fishing on lakes. Use a fly lure. You need a special Rod and Reel and you catch Troud and Salmon for fly fishing.

How To Survive Drowning

Using the Clothes to Avoid Drowning

If you fall into the water and your shirt is in your pants, you can use your shirt to make an air bubble to float on. You can also make an air floating device using your jeans or other long pants you might have with you.

How Drown-Proofing can help you stay alive and afloat. A person can float in an upright position, with their face over sea level and only lifting the mouth and nose above the water when it is necessary to breathe. This method allows you to stay afloat using little energy.

The following below are ways you need to follow so you can get drown-proofing right.

Using just Your Arms

Get a lot of air before you float backwards with your back of the head just floating over sea level. The water will then support your full body. Allow your arms to float slowly toward the surface with your elbows bent until your hands are in front of your shoulders. With steady movements, use your hands to push down and back with your hands until your mouth clears the water. Do this every 15 seconds.

Using just Arms and Legs

Scissor kick your legs and push downward with your hands at the same time. Using this motion will allow you to use little energy to stay balanced. Trick is to keep your head out of the water to breath. Try and be as calm as possible.

When your head first gets out of the water, you should slightly put your head forward so the water is away from your face. Open your mouth and inhale so you get as much air as possible.

In drown-proofing it is very important to consciously change the way you breathe. Keep your lungs full of air as much of the time as possible.
When you take a breath exhale and inhale as quickly as possible through your mouth.
Knowing what to do around water is the key to your survival. Always be attentive and don’t panic in dangerous situations.

Planning is the key to your survival. Without a water survival plan and regular practice, the end result could be the death of you or your friends or family.

Two…Make sure you put pressure on the wound so that it stops it from clotting the wound.

4 Ways to Organize and Prep

1. The first step is to get rid of stuff you do not use or need. It is more difficult than it sounds. You will have to find ways to either sell, give away, or just trade items and stuff you aren’t in need of.

2. Your next step is to invest in storage for the things you will be needing for your prepping needs. Get the same type of storage and keep each category of the same kind, in one storage place. Place them somewhere in an area where it will be safe, and you have easy reach to them.

3. Each storage box should have its own categories. In one box you will have your light sources, in another your fire starter sources, in another your food supply, in another your water. Etc.

4. You should label your boxes so you don’t lose your planning. Make sure the labelling sticks for good. Label your boxes. About six months ago I stopped using labels and began using painters tape instead. This has become a real game-changer in that the labels do not fall off. Not only that, they are easily removed and replaced as the contents of the boxes change.

Storing Water During Winter

Water is essential to helping you stay alive. This could be difficult to store water when temps are reaching below freezing. If you freeze your water, you’ll have to use a lot of energy to melt it out and put it in use again. There are somethings you need to worry about from freezing your water in the winter .

Preventing Water Storage from Freezing
You don’t want your Indoor Water to freeze up. You should keep any water that you have in a basement, or an insulated area so it doesn’t get cold enough to freeze it. You can also keep your water unfrozen by installing some type of circulation pump in your storage containers. This will keep the water moving, and making it a lot harder to freeze. IF you water freezes within the container, you will need to take some precautions to save the container from getting damaged. Water will expand 8-9% when frozen. Fill your water containers and fill them about 90% full , to allow some room for expansion. If you use thicker and heavier plastics and can withtand the expansion, then use that.

Outdoor Water Storage
If you are keeping your water out in a storage location because you can’t keep it inside, then you need to get yourself an underground tank. What you need to do is dig yourself a whole to fill a water tanker to bury it. Dig 4 feet down so you can pass the frost level. When buried it will help prevent your water from freezing.

If you are storing your water above ground, then make sure you get a steel tank. Having a steel tank will help you absorb the heat from the sun and will help you keep your water warm to stay unfrozen all throughout the night.

Another above ground option is to store your water in a greenhouse. When building a greenhouse, you must use 2 layers of plastic to effectively trap the heat inside and prevent the cold from getting in. If well built, a greenhouse should be able to keep your water from thawing when it gets unbearably cold in the winter.

Water is still essential to survival. These tips can help you prevent your water storage from freezing and ensure that it is ready to use when you need it.

Bugging In vs Bugging Out

Bugging out is a real possibility that you may have to someday face, Bugging ou into the wilderness is not an easy task, and is very dangerous. Not recommended. For even the most diehard outdoorsman, living in the wilderness full-time is something that most of us would never advise doing. In my opinion, you’re setting yourself up for disaster, and it’s not a realistic survival plan that anyone should have in mind.

Bugging In

You must always be prepared for a bug out situation. You have to have:

1. A Good escape plan and knowing about it by heart is the best option.

2. An already picked location to bug out. Make sure you have something in mind on where to go when its time to bug out.

While sheltering in place is often the safest bet, there are some considerations that you need to keep in mind.

Bugging Out

1. You must always be prepared to leave. No matter how bad you want to stay, there will be times and situations that make it impossible to stay.
2. Home security needs to be a top priority. Be Able to defend your home.
3. Try and be secluded so that you don’t get attacked by any panicked neighbors and others that might want your own shelter for themselves. People could get greedy in times of need.
