If your going for a more predatory fish, then try artificial lures such as crank baits or spoons. When you cast an artificial, you’re covering more water space, and if the bait looks like it’s swimming quickly through the water, it’s more likely to awaken the fish’s predatory instincts.
The initial player is selected at random. The player can then ask one of the other players for a particular rank. For example, you might ask Bill if he has any sixes. You may only ask for ranks that you already have at least one card of. E.g. if you don’t have any sixes yourself you can’t ask for them. If Bill has any sixes, then he must give them to you, and you get another turn and can ask again. If Bill doesn’t have any sixes then he will tell you to “Go Fish” which means that you will draw one card from the pile on the table. If you get a six, then you show it to the other players and get to play again. If you get anything else you are finished with your turn and the player next to you plays.
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.
“Berkley can now change the solidity or softness of a bait based on new processes and combinations of active ingredients,” he says. “Some are derived from natural ingredients, while others are completely synthetic.” Berkley makes a variety of Gulp! shrimp imitators, including the Hollow Shrimp (pictured), Mantis Shrimp, Ghost Shrimp and original Shrimp.

Many fishermen, especially who are relatively new in the field of fishing chose random gloves over specialized ones. The result is facing uncomfortable situations. Veteran hunters will be the first one to tell you that finding the right pair of fishing gloves is important.
Try jigs. Jigs are probably the most common lure used in both fresh and saltwater fishing. They consist of a weighted head and a tail made of feathers or plastic, which is used to conceal a hook. Often a piece of live bait will be attached to the hook to make the lure even more enticing, though this isn’t strictly necessary.
The other week I volunteered as a guide for another Saturday event for the Maryland chapter of Heroes on the Water (HOW). This event was held on Clopper Lake, part of Seneca Creek State Park in Gaithersburg, MD. My Friday night routine was the same as for any other kayak fishing excursion: prep rods and reels, inventory and select tackle, charge GoPro batteries, check weather forecast and then try and get some sleep. The last one is always the hardest for me – I still feel like a kid the night before departing on a trip to Disney World.
Love these hooks. They stay sharp and can take some abuse. Have used both the standard and the red. Not sure if the red actually makes trout think the bait is wounded or not, but you never know! LOL… These are the only hooks you will find at the end of my line when fishing live bait whether it be shrimp or croaker. Just be sure to have a couple of different sizes depending on how big the bait is at the time.

Spoons are curved metal lures. The first spoons were just that, spoons with the handle broken off. Today, spoons can be had (like all other lures) in any color and size. There is a spoon for every fishing situation. The shape of this lure gives it its distinctive action. Spoons move through water with a side-to-side wobble that simulates an injured baitfish, and game fish just love injured baitfish.
Contemporary hooks are manufactured from either high-carbon steel, steel alloyed with Vanadium, or stainless steel, depending on application. Most quality fish hooks are covered with some form of corrosion-resistant surface coating. Corrosion resistance is required not only when hooks are used, especially in saltwater, but while they are stored. Additionally, coatings are applied to color and/or provide aesthetic value to the hook. At a minimum, hooks designed for freshwater use are coated with a clear lacquer, but hooks are also coated with gold, nickel, Teflon, tin and different colors.
You can also use the needle nosed pliers to crush the barb on your hook, to make it easier to remove. Some professionals recommend doing this before casting your line out (especially when fishing for catfish), to make it easier to release your catch. It truly works best with circle/octopus circle type hooks. These hooks make it easier to set the hook in the lip/corner of the fish’s mouth; without much effort on your part.

It can deflect hooks, knives, and teeth. It is easy to handle fish with the gloves, which is ideal for slippery fish. It is perfect for anglers and won’t take on a fish odor. You can grip the fish for holding and cleaning to ensure it doesn’t get away.
Here’s how this might affect your fishing. Let’s say you’re fishing a heavily pressured lake where many anglers use dark-purple plastic worms. After a while, bass here might avoid all dark-purple worms equally because they view them as the same and have had bad experiences when eating things this color. But bass that have learned to shy away from watermelon worms might see watermelon/red flake worms as distinctly different and therefore an OK meal.
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.
Try spoons. A spoon is a lure which resembles the head of a spoon without the handle. This shape causes the lure to flutter in the water as it sinks, which then creates the illusion of an injured bait fish. The red devil, a red and white spoon, is very popular. The red stripes look like blood to a hungry game fish.

There’s also a widely held belief that obtaining fishing “wisdom” follows an upward evolutionary trajectory, in which many beginners start out with bait, moving on to lures and perhaps even flies later in their angling careers as their skill levels grow. Implicit in this picture is an almost inevitable value judgement concerning the relative worth or merit of each fishing style. Under angling’s informal but historically entrenched hierarchical class system, fly fishing is typically seen as the pinnacle of the sport and as somewhat superior to lure fishing, with bait fishing languishing at the bottom of the pile. In Great Britain, this angling snobbery is further reinforced via the use of value-laden descriptions such as “game” and “coarse” fishing to describe different disciplines.

Hunting gloves are essential when you’re fishing in the ice or out to catch a big fish. You wouldn’t want to handle them in bare hands because it would be tough for you to off-hook them without any hassle. The best fishing gloves give you the chance to have better control on the scenario.
To adequately prevent fatigue, the fingers on the Glacier gloves are pre-curved, which allows the material to follow the shape of your digits, so they are not left stiff the whole day while encased in the hand protection sleeves.
Get an appropriate fishing line and an appropriate variety of hook. The smaller the hook and line, the better the chance of a bite. You want to match the kind of line to the type of pole you’ve got–if you’ve got a particularly rigid pole, you’ll want fairly strong test line. If you’ve got a looser pole, get the lightest gauge you can. Smaller line means more fish.
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.
The Rapala Marine Fisherman Glove is a nice glove that is also affordable. These great basic gloves can be purchased for a cheap price and they provide a good non-slip grip on your catch. The durable latex coating will protect your hands from dorsal fins, teeth and gill plates. However it’s not to be used as a fillet glove.
At the end of the game, deduct a point for each card a player is holding. This way players have to balance between wanting a lot of cards to get matches and getting rid of their cards before the end of the game.
Nets: Nets are great tools but are cumbersome in a kayak. Consider a foldable net like the Frabill Power Stow, StowMaster Kayak Net, or a fish-gripping device like a Team Catfish Floating Grip, a Boga Grip, or even a rubberized glove for landing fish.
A crank lure – more commonly known as a crankbait – is a fish-like hard lure or plug designed to swim under the surface, often made of plastic or wood. Some are combined with replaceable soft plastic tails.
The Catch 120 is an all-new fishing kayak featuring a wide and flat platform, a newly developed Ergocast dual-position seating system, and a large storage well. It comes in vibrant olive camo and lava colors, has a stable tunnel hull, and offers great value.
Hook shapes and names are as varied as fish themselves. In some cases hooks are identified by a traditional or historic name, e.g. Aberdeen, Limerick or O’Shaughnessy. In other cases, hooks are merely identified by their general purpose or have included in their name, one or more of their physical characteristics. Some manufacturers just give their hooks model numbers and describe their general purpose and characteristics. For example: [redirect url=’http://pitchalure.com/bump’ sec=’7′]
