The type and size of lure is generally determined by the fish species that you’re targeting. Although there is no defined role for the various lures, the idea is to match a lure as well as possible with a fish’s natural prey. For example, a bass usually feeds on tiny crayfish, making it less likely to bite a large fish-shaped lure.
With meticulous precision, every fishing lure made by Rapala swims with perfection right out of the box. Lauri Rapala, our founder, demanded it. Since 1936, each and every lure made lives up to this promise. Hand-tuned and tank-tested, anglers the world over count on Rapala® lures for consistent success. This unwavering dedication to quality is the reason why Rapala makes 20 million lures a year, sold in over 140 countries around the world. And it’s the reason why more world record fish have been caught on a Rapala than any other brand. Simply put, Rapala fishing lures make better fishermen!
While there are lots of specialty fishing hooks available, a handful of select hook styles do the brunt of the work for most fishing presentations. Bait, circle, treble, and worms hooks are a few examples. The following is a primer on popular fish hooks and some of their applications.
Charlie, ProStaff and guide for The Kayak Fishing Store, was born and raised in Cape May, NJ. Fishing has always been a passion of his; from working on party boats, charter/sport fishing boats, commercial trawlers, scallopers, and clam boats. The experience he gained in his endeavors has helped him to understand tide, moon, and fish patterns. Charlie has been an avid surf fisherman for over 35 years fishing from Montauk to the Florida Keys. In 2008 Charlie tried kayak fishing and hasn’t looked back! With help from his long-time friend Chris Parson, the pair began the forum board JerseyCapeKayakFishing.net.
Ideal for either fresh or saltwater fishing, this pair can be washed in the machine, so you won’t need to launder them by hand. They can be left to drip dry. You will enjoy many seasons of service from the gloves.

Some play a version in which a player asking for a card must say “please”, and a player receiving a card must say “thank you”. Anyone who forgets to do this must give back the requested card (if it has been handed over) and the turn passes to the player they were asking.
The Almost Alive Shrimp comes with a molded-in hook and lead, allowing the angler to cast the lure right out of the box. Features include a lifelike body, swimmerets, walking legs, antenna, rostrum and protruding eyes.
The size of your lure is generally more important than its color. Buying lures based on color alone is not a great idea because underwater conditions can vary greatly. The time of day and the weather can cause big changes from one day to the next, even in the same location.
Material – The most important aspect of what makes a fishing glove good, better or best is the kind of material it is made out of. As you will see with the reviews below, there are a variety of different materials which a glove can be made out of, which each offers their own benefits.

We decided to have a launch party so we can show our gratitude to those who are able to give us a chance. We want to build a close community of individuals that want to see fishing brought to life. One of the ways to do that is to have an annual celebration that looks back on the accomplishments of the past year and announces the aspirations of the year to come.

These are the Best fishing games because it also replicates what happens in reality when you go fishing… well… you have to wait – not that much as in real life, but when you got a fish press again the ‘’Strike’’ button and bring the fish to the boat. Be careful not to let it swim away with your bait!
Secluded spots around ponds or levees outside of town are good bets. If you’re wandering in the woods looking for a place to fish privately, make sure you’re not tramping onto someone’s private property, or that you’re fishing in a place that doesn’t allow it.
Native Watercraft kayaks offer another option, a bicycle pedal drive system that turns a propeller. Pedaling with your legs from a reclining position, the mechanism resembles a recumbent bike and is designed to use powerful leg muscles. Steering with both systems is done with a hand-control lever that directs a rudder at the stern.

When kayak fishing in shallow water, an alternative to a traditional anchor is a stake-out pole—a long pole that you can drive into soft bottoms. You can run the pole through your anchor trolley or a scupper hole to hold your position. If you’re fishing an area with a lot of stickups or overhanging trees, a brush hook or similar type clamp can hold your position. Because you may have to detach from your anchor for safety purposes or while fighting a fish, it’s a good idea to have a float attached to your anchor rope so you can easily return to it.
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.
Depending upon the material of your glove, this may or may not be a viable option. If you have fishing gloves which are made from a rubber material, then cutting off the finger tips would not be that big of a deal. However, the thicker the glove, the less recommended it is for you to cut the fingertips off of your gloves. This is due to the more material which can be found within the finger area of the glove. If you do cut the fingertips off, then you will need to sew them together so you don’t lose any material within the fingertips that you leave. Once again, this is not really recommended, but if you are in a pinch, then there is nothing truly wrong with it.
If you get a bite immediately stop reeling in and very slowly move the lure left and right until the bobber goes under the water. The second it does yank very hard and forcefully. You do this because when the fish bites it and you yank, the fish will get the hook caught in it’s lip and you can then reel it in.
Anglers often experiment with a wide range of lure colors before determining one that entices the most strikes, but learning some basic tips can help narrow the range of colors from which the selection should be made. (Keith Sutton photo)
We had another week with copious amounts of rain so the water clarity was murky and the amount of vegetation had not only increased in area but also in thickness. Every cast with the Rapala resulted in treble hooks with clumps of grass. I continued to throw the Rapala determined to stick with my game plan. I had purposely left most of my tackle trays back in my truck so I would be forced to stick with a lure/technique until it worked. This is actually one of my goals for this season – make a game plan and try and stick to it. Too many times I’ve gone out fishing and spent most of my time switching baits and tying on different lures instead of fishing. To paraphrase a well-known cliché, plan to fish and fish the plan. During days of tough fishing this hard to do but perseverance does have its rewards. While it might not be always be the size you are looking for but a small fish is better than no fish.
