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)
Hook and line sport fishing techniques may not be particularly effective in a survival situation. In fact, it may be a waste of really valuable time if you’re fishing when a better choice might be to gather firewood, improve a shelter, or set up signals.

The next lure on the menu are crankbaits. The classic Rapala Floating Minnow is one of most productive patterns of all time, but mini-cranks can also produce amazing results. Look for a plug that will imitate small shiners (silver), suckers (gold), or sunfish. The beauty of using a plug is that you can experiment in a wide variety of ways. You can buy floating, sinking or neutral buoyancy plugs to help you reach different depths. If the plug has a plastic lip jutting out and downward from the front of the lure, it will swim downward when you reel. So, floating lures will swim downward until you stop reeling them, at which point they will slowly begin to float back to the surface. When you stop reeling a neutral buoyancy plug, it won’t float back to the surface, and it won’t sink any further — it stops dead in the water. Sinking plugs sink, of course. They sink face first when you reel and belly first when you stop. Other than these built-in perks, the action of the lure is totally up to you. Vary your retrieve from quick to painfully slow. A straight consistent retrieve works fine, but also experiment with jerky retrieves and start & stops. If you can convince the fish that the minnow is injured and weak, it will often trigger a strike.
If you’re out to get some monstrous fish, do not forget to have heavy-grip gloves. While you need to handle both your rod and the fish in a crucial moment, having a good grip in your gloves is important.
After casting, keep your line still until the ripples in the water go away, then sweep your rod down to the surface of the water. Use the sweeping motion either slowly or quickly depending on the assertiveness of the fish.

The tacky Diamond-Grip has been directly injected onto the nylon mesh palm, which gives you a better grip in the water. The back of the gloves is vented foam mesh to keep your hands cool while you’re wearing them. The neoprene cuff has Velcro closures to keep the gloves attached and keep water out.

Find out what people fish for in your area. Many newspapers have local fishing reports that will list locations and tell you what fish, if any, are biting and what they’re biting on. You can also ask around at angling shops, marinas and camping supply stores in the area for tips.

The best gloves for fishing in cold weather will be lined or insulated. Most experienced anglers recommend choosing neoprene gloves that are 5 to 7 mm thick so you have plenty of protection from the cold wind and water. If the fishing gloves are constructed from latex you will want to make sure that they come with a fleece or thermal lining, and this can also be found on some neoprene pairs that are designed specifically for ice fishing. While warmth is crucial for your safety and comfort, you also want to make sure that the gloves are not too bulky that they restrict the movements of your fingers.
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.
A fish hook or fishhook is a device for catching fish either by impaling them in the mouth or, more rarely, by snagging the body of the fish. Fish hooks have been employed for centuries by fishermen to catch fresh and saltwater fish. In 2005, the fish hook was chosen by Forbes as one of the top twenty tools in the history of man. Fish hooks are normally attached to some form of line or lure which connects the caught fish to the fisherman. There is an enormous variety of fish hooks in the world of fishing. Sizes, designs, shapes, and materials are all variable depending on the intended purpose of the fish hook. Fish hooks are manufactured for a range of purposes from general fishing to extremely limited and specialized applications. Fish hooks are designed to hold various types of artificial, processed, dead or live baits (bait fishing); to act as the foundation for artificial representations of fish prey (fly fishing); or to be attached to or integrated into other devices that represent fish prey (lure fishing).
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.
Oh, the wonderful world of technology. A vibrating lure contains a tiny motor that sends out a sound-producing vibration to attract fish. The lure body simulates a living creature. A programmed microprocessor is used to randomly operate the motor.
5) Weight: Fishing kayaks range in weight from about 65 to 130 pounds before adding accessories and gear. Consider how you plan to transport your kayak. A kayak over pounds may be a great fishing platform, but it can be back-breaking to lift onto a car-top rack or drag a long distance to the water. Fortunately, kayak carts ease the burden of transporting kayaks from vehicle to water. Lift-assist devices also can help with car-topping, and trailers are another option.
