You will need to first determine what the regulations are for the area that you will be fishing. You will more than likely need to purchase a license. From there, determine a target species (ideally one that is prevalent in the body of water you are fishing), choose an appropriate bait (within regulations) and an appropriate hook, line, and pole.

You have to talk to the folks at the local bait shop. You need to seek out some advice on where the fish have been biting. Maybe you have to buy from them shops first!!

You will need a fishing rod with line and hooks. Make sure to have strong enough line to handle the size fish you want. Learn how to bait a hook.

Before you take or use any bait in any waters, please check your local, state or federal regulation agencies to make sure that it is legal and that you conform to all harvesting requirements.

You do not need complex tackle and rigging to catch most freshwater species. They also eat the same types of foods.
