Movement – Detecting movement is one of the primary ways a fish hunts for its dinner. This is why lure fishing is so effective. In many instances, a fish recognizes its food simply by the way it moves. If you learn to make your lure dance just right, it will become irresistible to fish.

The Indonesian version of Go Fish is known as Omben in Javanese or Minuman in Indonesian, both names meaning “drink”. It is said to be best for two players, each of whom begins with a hand of 4 or 5 cards (according to agreement) drawn from a 52 card pack. The players take turns to ask their opponent for a rank, such as 8 or king, and the opponent must give the asker all cards of that rank that he or she holds. If the opponent has no such card the asker must “drink” by drawing cards from the pile of undealt cards: the asker continues to draw until he or she finds a card of the rank that was asked for. Whenever a player has four of a kind in hand, it must be discarded face up. The winner is the first player to get rid of all their cards – it does not matter how many or few sets they have made. If the stock runs out, the player with fewer cards is the winner. Note that in this game the players ask alternately, irrespective of whether the card asked for is found in the other player’s hand or the draw pile.
While bottom fishing or jigging can be done from small boats, it was long thought that effective trolling required speeds of five to ten knots, a speed well out of the range of someone paddling. However, the discovery that fish could be taken at much lesser speeds has increased the popularity of kayak fishing.
As a general rule, you should use brighter baits on sunny days, and darker baits when the sky is cloudy or overcast. Water clarity and depth are also determining factors in your choice of lures. When fishing in clear deep lakes light penetrates much deeper and all colors are more visible than in stained or muddy water. Red shades are the first to become invisible to fish, with blues and greens showing up much better as water depth increases. A notable exception to this rule is the use of 2-toned soft plastic lures that feature a darker head color and a fluorescent white, pink or yellow tail color. Many anglers use soft plastic lures colored like this when fishing in cloudy weather.
Bait tank: There are a few onboard livewell options for kayaks, and most are large, heavy, and expensive. A YouTube search reveals several do-it-yourself plans if you intend to keep live shad. An option for hardier baits is a flow-through bait container like a Frabill Flow Troll Bucket. They create drag but perform much better than stringers for baits like bluegills. To keep cutbait fresh, the best option I’ve found is the soft-side Yeti 12-Pack Hopper. If you vacuum-seal baits in individual bags and your lunch and drinks in another, it’s a good option for even the hottest of days.
These fishing gloves from Rapala are great for when you fish in either saltwater or fresh water settings. These gloves have an extra layer of grip, to allow you to catch any fish at any time, to where they won’t slip between your fingers.
You can also help a friend when you see an icon above the friends photo. You can earn some reputation and your friends can earn helpful Go Fishing materials. For the helping hand quest, there’s a button “Ask for a helping hand”. Press it to request helping hands. Once your friends accept the request, you will see the helping hands in your Game requests.
This selection served me well the rest of the way down the 2,500 miles of the river. I never went hungry because I couldn’t catch a fish and my go-to lure was a 1/8-ounce jig, tipped with a three-inch yellow Mr. Twister.
“We wanted our shrimp to imitate the real thing so the bait not only appeals to fishermen, but also puts fish in the boat,” says J.W. Pender, operations manager of Almost Alive Lures in North Carolina.

Measure the fish. If you’re considering keeping the fish for eating, you’ll need to make sure it’s big enough to be taken and that it’s not a protected species of fish. Get hold of the fish by moving your hand from head toward the tail without getting lanced by its fins. If you move your hand against the grain, you’ll get speared.
Based on the Kraken 15.5 platform, the 13.5 sheds some length for more maneuverability while still handling the offshore and big lake environments of the larger model. It’s designed for punching through surf, handling rough offshore currents, swells, beach landings and those who desire performance and maneuverability while chasing big fish in big water.
If you’re the defender and you can’t decide what to lead, here’s an old bit of Bridge lore: when in doubt, lead the fourth-best card from your longest suit. This is called leading from length. It’s considered the standard way to lead in a no-trump contract, and it’s a safe way to proceed in a suit contract.

Lights: If you plan on fishing after dark, check regulations regarding nav-light requirements for kayaks. Many lights on the market meet regulations. I use the Yak Attack Visi-Carbon Pro. It’s an LED light powered by AA batteries on a pole that easily breaks down for storage when not in use. Reflective tape added the hull also can make you more visible at night.
We have many ideas that we want to push forward, but we don’t have the resources to hire our lead engineer. If we are able to hit our goal, we would be able to put out a new fishing skin every two weeks once we launch (by skin, we mean a type of fish). We can do free firmware updates that can give your Animated Lure different swimming patterns to choose from. We can’t fully tip our hand, but with being on our listserv you will have access to information prior to going public and rights to pre-order new line of products. That is why our top-tier donors are going to be able to get the product before it goes on the market—so they can test it and tell us how they like it. Naturally, you are the people we want testing out our product because we know you are truly passionate about fishing.
Keep your lures clean. When you’re fishing, as you reel your lure back in, take a few seconds to check the status of the lure and clean it up if necessary. In certain fishing conditions, lures can get gunky with weeds, twigs, and other debris, making them less effective at attracting fish and less effective at looking real. Make sure your lures are clean and ready to go before you recast.
Fishing lures come in many shapes, colors and styles. There are crankbaits, spinnerbaits, umbrella rigs, topwater frogs and rats and who-knows-what, jerkbaits, jigs, buzzbaits and a whole lot more. Lures are designed for specific techniques, and to be fished a certain way. In some cases fish can’t get enough of a certain lure at one time of year, then won’t look at it at other times. Key to fishing with lures is experience and an open mind. Learn what your fish want to eat, then match it with your lures, but always be ready to learn a new technique or try a different tactic.

Other considerations include your style of fishing and type of water to be fished, and whether you want to fish from a seated or standing position. Recreational kayaks can be divided into two categories: sit-inside and sit-on-top. For anglers fishing frigid conditions, sit-inside models keep you drier and your lower body more protected from the elements. But for most anglers, a sit-on-top model is more appropriate as they’re easier to get on and off; they’re self-bailing with through-hull scupper holes; and are less confining, allowing the user to sit higher or stand for a better vantage while fishing.
The Sportsman’s 12-foot length covers distance and maintains good ground speed for trolling and paddling quickly in open ocean conditions, and the ultra-wide tail increases overall stability to move and rotate freely when reeling in a big fish. There’s plenty of space on the deck to hold a cooler box and still have room move around. Bungee tie-downs help carry gear and Scotty mounts in front of the standing area are ideal for accessories.

When a new kayak guide for 2017 will be published? I am sure there are a lot of new models in markets now. For example new Old Town Loon angler series. There are already recommended as top sit-inside kayaks: https://outdoorempire.com/7-best-angling-kayaks-reviewed/, but not in your list.
Heavily fished areas are exposed to a lot of the same lures and tackle in a small space. The fish learn to accept these pesky intruders as part of their environment and they no longer attack. Try using new and exciting fishing lures to spice up the lives of your underwater foes. If something new makes its way into the water, fish will take notice.

The Rapala Marine makes an excellent choice for the busy angler who can’t seem to find too much time to devote to cleaning his or her gloves. In fact, all you need to make them look like new is toss them into the washer.

Charlie has fished from the chilly waters off Salem, Massachusetts down to the tepid waters of Chokoloskee, Florida. He has found the community of kayak anglers to be one of the warmest and most open minded group of individuals. Regardless of where he is, he can ask any question and get an honest answer each time.

Pelagic – Pelagic has a couple of different levels of fishing gloves, which come in either a red or a blue color. These fingered gloves also have extra protection along the fingertips, as well as along the webbing between your pointing finger and your thumb. These are fitted gloves, and have a Velcro strap to ensure they stay on tight with each wear. These heavy duty gloves are perfect for when you are fishing for bigger fish, as they will provide you with the right amount of grip needed to bring each fish into your boat, so you can enjoy later. The heavy dutiness of these gloves derives from a Kevlar material, to help protect your hands from blisters and line cuts.
… and that’s all that really matters, right? She usually recruits her 15 yr old sister and myself to play with her. At first we went easy on her and let her win, but now, she wins on her own. I’m glad I bought these cards. When I was a kid, I learned to play Go Fish with a regular deck. That’s fine for older kids, but for younger ones, these cards are really nice. They are strong, sturdy, and there’s not as many “books” as with a full deck of cards. Game play is fairly quick, so it’s not annoying for adults (lol). If you have a child under 6 or 7, you should definitely get this deck.
Snag hooks are heavy duty treble hooks that are weighted with lead around the center shanks of the three treble hooks. They are rarely baited with anything and are cast out into the water then rapidly retrieved back in a jerking motion, hoping to ‘snag’ a fish on the outside of its body. Snag hooks are often used during spawning periods of nuisance fish to control populations. These hooks are sometimes banned in certain states so it is important that all anglers check with their State’s rules and regulations prior to using these hooks.
