Great article. One of the simplest lures amongst several hundred in 4 very large tackle boxes. I’ve even caught rainbow trout on Blue Ridge parkway to snook off the beaches of Gulf Shores with these jigs. I like your site.
Anchor Trolley: An anchor trolley is a pulley system that runs along the side of the kayak from front to back. It allows you to easily attach things such as an anchor or driftsock, and adjust their position along the length of the kayak depending on how you want to be positioned in wind or current. If you plan on anchoring, install an anchor trolley on each side of the kayak. Doing so allows you to attach an anchor to one side while deploying a driftsock off the other. Driftsocks can be used to slow your drift speed in wind, and deployment off the front of the kayak while anchored minimizes back-and-forth swing that sometimes occurs when fishing in wind.
Regulations may limit the size of, number of, and season that a type of fish may be caught, and may require a license to fish. In some cases, only “catch and release” fishing is allowed, which means the fish must be let go. Some bait is illegal in certain areas.
Field & Stream – Although they are mostly known for their hunting gloves, Field & Stream has a variety of fishing gloves which are available for your needs. Although they do have some which are in black, they are mostly in a camouflage design, and they have gloves which are good for either warmer temperatures, or arctic ice fishing. Most of their gloves come with a Velcro or a Strap system to help keep them snug on your hands, and do have ones which both cover all of your fingers, or are fingerless. Different fishing gloves they make have different levels of comfort and layers of protection, so you can ensure you find the right fishing glove which fits you best.
“The Shrimp soft bait was designed with a solid head, belly slot and back slot strategically placed for easy rigging,” says Dan Quinn, field promotions manager at Storm. “Premium phthalate-free plastic provides a balance of action and durability, plus we offer a wide range of natural and attractive colors.” (Phthalates chemically soften plastics and can be dangerous to humans.)
Thanks to Wali for his excerpt from the Idiot’s Guide. How? Poke large hole(s) in your perfectly good Kayak and set it in place with some stick-um and screws. Seriously though, it really is about that simple. A 2 1/4″ hole saw works real well to poke the hole and I like 3m 4200 as a sealant. Don’t drill the screw holes until you put the holder in place and rotate it to the position you want your rod to point in and it fits inside your hull (I shortened mine some). Be careful and don’t over tighten the screws […]
Wilderness Systems’ first ti-powered kayak with paddle power and pedal capabilities. In addition to a flat platform for standing and freedom of movement, the Radar boast state-of-the-art outfitting in…
Hooks are designed as either single hooks—a single eye, shank and point; double hooks—a single eye merged with two shanks and points; or triple—a single eye merged with three shanks and three evenly spaced points. Double hooks are formed from a single piece of wire and may or may not have their shanks brazed together for strength. Triple hooks are formed by adding a single eyeless hook to a double hook and brazing all three shanks together. Double hooks are used on some artificial lures and are a traditional fly hook for Atlantic Salmon flies, but are otherwise fairly uncommon. Triple hooks are used on all sorts of artificial lures as well as for a wide variety of bait applications.
Shrimp-lure companies remain tight-lipped about the details of their baits, although they will reveal general details of ingredients, such as polyvinyl chloride (PVC) or thermoplastic elastomers (TPE). They will also tell you how the soft baits work and why they catch fish, but I have my own essential techniques after fishing artificials for years. Shrimp basically move in three different ways: fleeing quickly backward, slowly swimming with the current or falling gently to rest on the bottom. Make sure whichever artificial shrimp you utilize successfully mimics one of these three natural movements. Too many anglers are lazy with their lure action or reel too quickly.
