One of the most effective (and one of the first plugs you should add to your tackle box) is the long, narrow minnow imitation in three to four inch length, the original is made by Rapala. It floats when its not moving and dives shallowly when it’s retrieved. Add a split ring to the eye if it doesn’t have one. Cast it out and wait until the rings on the surface of the water dissipate, then retrieve it slowly or fast, stopping suddenly and maybe throwing in an occasional twitch.
The last basic type of lure we’ll look at here are soft plastics, which are actually banned in many Missouri trout waters managed for wild or trophy trout — soft plastics cause a higher mortality rate in trout that are released. When a trout grabs most flies or lures, it recognizes right away that it doesn’t feel natural and will try to dislodge it. When a trout grabs a soft plastic lure, however, it feels very natural. So, the trout’s reaction is to try to toss it back and swallow it. For this reason, these lures are often very deeply hooked and are more likely to cause lethal damage to the fish. From a legal standpoint, the state of Missouri considers soft plastics to be member of the bait family, so anywhere you are permitted to fish with bait, you are also permitted to use soft plastics. Otherwise, they are off-limits.
Effectiveness: The jig is designed to mimic a minnow, or represent some other food source. Sometimes, a properly-fished jig will cause a reflexive strike for a game fish. While I have a tackle box full of various lures, I generally start out with a jig, and seldom have reason to switch.
Make sure the water you’re fishing is clean if you’re planning on eating the fish. Check your Department of Natural Resources website, or call and talk to someone at the park office for information about the cleanliness of the water and whether or not its safe to eat the fish you’re planning on catching. If you don’t want to eat them, simply release them back into the water.
The eye of a hook, although some hooks are technically eyeless, is the point where the hook is connected to the line. Hook eye design is usually optimized for either strength, weight and/or presentation. There are different types of eyes to the hooks. Typical eye types include the ring or ball eye, a brazed eye-the eye is fully closed, a tapered eye to reduce weight, a looped eye—traditional on Atlantic Salmon flies, needle eyes, and spade end—no eye at all, but a flattened area to allow secure snelling of the leader to the hook. Hook eyes can also be positioned one of three ways on the shank—up turned, down turned or straight.

Scent – Fish are able to detect smells that are carried through the water. This is a big factor in helping them find food in dark or cloudy conditions. Using a proper scent on your lure can attract a lot of attention, but touching a lure with hands covered in sunscreen or bug spray can have the opposite effect.
Fishing with braid while ice fishing can do a number on your hands, and it can wear out your gloves very quickly. Stormr took that into consideration when designing this glove. One thing they did to customize this glove for fishermen is they put Klevar on the index finger tip and the thumb tip. This is specifically designed for fishermen fishing with braided line.
Customizing kayaks to your fishing style takes planning and time on the water. Learning from other peoples’ experience is invaluable. “When I first got into kayak catfishing, I applied what I was doing in the boat to the kayak,” Johnston says. “I primarily anchored the boat so that’s what I did in the kayak. Fortunately, the section of the Tennessee River where I live generally has slow current, so I can safely anchor here, but I don’t recommend anchoring in fast-flowing rivers. Anchoring a kayak in fast current is dangerous and shouldn’t be attempted. Things can go bad quickly and no fish is worth risking your life. My techniques have continued to evolve since those early days. Today I drift and fish for suspended fish 80 percent of the time. It’s not only safer, it’s more efficient and effective for kayak catfishing.”
Attach your weights and bobbers. If the water is quite swift, as in a river or stream, it is probably best to attach weights (sinkers) to your line about 12″ above your bait. By weighting down your line you will keep your bait in place an inch or a few inches above the floor of the water—right where fish are likely to be hunting.
