What’s on the menu? I always start by learning what the gamefish like to eat where I’m fishing. Asking a local fisheries biologist or angler usually produces this information, and then I try to “match the hatch” so to speak—using lures closely mimicking prey color, size and shape. Baits resembling predominant forage almost always elicit more strikes than baits that don’t. Be sure, however, you use the right lure for the right cover and structure. If you know a lake has lots of shad in it, for example, you may want to throw shad-colored lures, but only if you’re fishing areas where shad will be. If you move from open water to shallow grass beds, it may be best to tie on a crawfish imitation instead.
“Years ago I suggested on this web site, orange hand cleaner for removal of oil/tar. Spike emailed me asking that I keep an eye on the cleaned area for signs of “reactions”. I still have the OK Scrambler. The area cleaned looks the same as the rest of the kayak. I do store the kayak indoors and use “303” protectant about once per month. Perhaps the extra care has been helpful.” Thanks to Bill Hartman, Oxnard California.

Bob has been involved with kayak fishing since the late 90’s. It started as an extension of his love of surf fishing while on a trip to the Downeast coast of Maine. Bob has introduced scores of anglers to his home waters on the Upper Chesapeake Bay, better known as the Susquehanna Flats, targeting primarily spawn run Striped Bass. He has fished the East Coast for many species of fish, primarily saltwater, From Maine to the Carolinas, with the bulk of his time split between Maryland and New Jersey. In recent years Bob has become a steadfast supporter of Heroes On The Water (HOW) through volunteering his time guiding Heroes and helping organize fund raising events benefiting them.
Players try to form sets of four-of-a-kind. When they do, the four cards are immediately placed on the table face up. Play continues until all books have been made. The player who makes the most books wins.
The Glacier Glove Black Rock hat takes the baseball cap to a new level with a protective flap in the back and an extra-large brim up front. It also features UPF 50 sun protection and mesh vents to ke…
If the player gets all four suits of the same rank, then they can put the cards face up in front of them. For example, if you already had a nine of hearts, clubs, and spades; then you picked up the nine of diamonds from the pool, you then get to place the set of nine cards down in front of you and you get another turn.
The glove is waterproof with a glued external blind stitch to give it excellent durability. The liquid taped seams will prevent any moisture from entering the glove. It is very durable and will work for grabbing any fish that happens upon your hook.
Adding to this from my experience, there are three primary options: paddle, pedal, or power. Having a fair amount of experience with all three, pedaling is more efficient than paddling most often, and in big-water settings, a battery-powered motor is a game changer. My original pedal kayak didn’t have reverse. This meant constantly using the paddle to move in reverse, eliminating hands-free operation. It also had a range of motion like climbing stairs—not the greatest on aging knees.

That was a huge downfall for me was the constant reminder that all these women wanted was to have sex. There were times when I was watching this film where I felt a bit of sweetness in my mouth because I thought there was some candy-coating happening. This does not need to happen in a film that is supposed to bring the lesbian lifestyle closer into the spotlight. I never felt that these women in this film were given the best light to show their stuff anyway. From the beginning of the first scene until the last (and all those snippets in-between) all they could talk about was sex. They wanted to have sex more often than I honestly think about in a day. It really made the rest of the non-existent themes seem blurry and unimportant. There was just a consistent lack of togetherness for this film that ultimately hurt it in the long run. This wasn’t a film about women’s rights, but instead a dire attempt to show the similarities between homosexual and heterosexual relationships. I agree that this happened, but just not very coherently. There seemed to be other elements strewn together in a very loose fashion that took away from the overall power of the film. Don’t get me wrong, this could have been a very powerful film about a lifestyle that this world is still not accepting, but instead it went too far to the left (which isn’t bad, except in this case) and chose to go the bleeding artist route instead of the informative, here are the facts route. The black and white photography, the lack of character development (who really was Ely’s partner?), and the cheesy moments between scenes where women talked to me about the illusive “honey pot”. It just wasn’t coming together well for me and eventually fell apart all together.
Glacier Glove company has been making fishing gloves for a quiet time now, and they have several products that have been adored by the users. The Glacier Glove Premium Neoprene Slit Finger Fishing Glove is no different. The gloves come with the split finger which offers better handiness to the user.
Method #1: bend the worm in half and push the hook directly through the bend to maintain a “V” shape to the lure. Cast the worm and allow it to sink to the bottom. Retrieve it slowly with a sharp twitch of the rod tip every second or two. The twitch will close the “V”, while the pause immediately after allows the “V” to open back up, giving the worm a froggy appearance. If you get a bite, you’ll probably set the hook automatically when you twitch it.
An early written reference to a fish hook is found with reference to the Leviathan in the Book of Job 41:1; Canst thou draw out leviathan with a hook? Fish hooks have been crafted from all sorts of materials including wood, animal and human bone, horn, shells, stone, bronze, iron up to present day materials. In many cases, hooks were created from multiple materials to leverage the strength and positive characteristics of each material. Norwegians as late as the 1950s still used juniper wood to craft Burbot hooks.  Quality steel hooks began to make their appearance in Europe in the 17th century and hook making became a task for specialists.
The EZ ShrimpZ is available stand-alone or pre-rigged. The basic version rigs forward or backward on a jig head, or weedless on a weighted swimbait hook. With a pre-rigged bait, the weight on the hook is notched so it can be trimmed for a slower sink rate in shallow areas. Common game-fish targets include seatrout, redfish, flounder and snook.
Do you want a glove that doesn’t just suitable for protection against cold and winter, also a treat for the eyes? The Harken Sports Men’s Spectrum 3/4 Finger Gloves come with beautiful color and greater anatomical fit for its users.
Catfish are common river and lake fish all over the United States. Channel catfish, blue catfish, and flathead catfish are all commonly caught for eating. Look for deep water at the mouth of large creeks and rivers, and keep an eye out for sudden cut banks or drops. Catfish love these spots, but will head out to deeper water when it warms.
This glove sports our advanced cooling technology, enough sun protection to earn the Skin Cancer Foundation’s seal of recommendation, and the crucial dexterity demanded by a variety of outdoor pursuits.
The player asking for a card must already hold at least one card of the same quartet. If the player who is hasked has the requested card, it must be given to the player who asked, who can then ask the same or another player for another card. If the player who is asked does not have the requested card, then the turn passes to that player, who now asks any player for a card. Whenever a player collects a complete quartet (four cards of the same rank when using standard cards), these are placed face up on the table. If this leaves the player without cards, the turn to ask passes to the next player to the left.

Plugs have a plastic or wood body and are designed to be used on top of the water or at depths below the surface. Topwater or floating plugs are designed to float on the surface. Diving plugs have plastic or metal lips so they will dive to a certain depth. These diving plugs are often called crankbaits because they are often used with bait casting reels that operate like a crank.
First introduced in the 1970s, Carolina Rigging is an exceptional way to boat both largemouth and smallmouth bass. To be successful, the hook must be as light as possible to allow the bait to float above the bottom. A light wire, wide gap hook penetrates large lizard and creature baits commonly thrown rigged Carolina style.
This suggests color is meaningful to bass in some cases but not others. Worrying over minor shade differences in blue, dark-purple and dark-red lures is pointless because bass see all shades of these colors as essentially the same. On the other hand, for mid-range colors where bass discriminate best, it makes perfect sense to offer a variety of lure colors when even small variations can make a big difference.
A: Unfortunately, due to lack of personnel, the Go FishIN Coordinator cannot host your group at Fort Harrison State Park nor can he visit your classroom or pack meeting; however, if you attend a Crew Captain workshop, you can learn how to implement the Go FishIN program and teach your kids how to fish. You will be able to use Go FishIN educational materials and fishing equipment anytime you need them.
Small spoons, spinners, and jigs are excellent lures for locating fish. Once located, you can then work with different size, color and type of bait to entice the fish to take your offering. Always make sure to adjust your rod, reel, and line size to match the size lure and fish you are trying to catch. You should also vary your speed of retrieve and depth at which you are fishing when trying to locate your fish.
Many unhappy fish have been introduced to these reapers. Used to catch fish sans bait, weighted treble hooks are thrown and snatched through the water, hoping for a chance encounter with a fish. Of course, this method of fishing is only legal in certain regions for certain fish.
Andrew also works as a freshwater kayak fishing guide. If freshwater angling is your preference, he will put you on the fish. Ten or more Pike measuring 24” up to +40” are possible as well as channel Catfish, Carp, and all the species mentioned above. If you want to try for the elusive Muskie (fish of 10,000 casts), it’s a pretty safe bet Andrew can help you land the fish of a lifetime, as he continues to catch more and more Muskie each year.
Color: Start out with a basic selection of black, white and chartreuse, and those colors will probably do the job. My favorite color on the Mississippi River was yellow. My top producer color on Oregon’s John Day River is motor oil or brown. Black and white are always contenders. Experiment in your area, and you’ll be able to dial in the local color preferences.
Fishing is a living, breathing sport. Every time you walk out onto the dock or push off the shore, things are a little different than they were before. Even your best-known fishing holes change over time. Every cast is into slightly different waters, and there’s always something new staring up from below.
