Mark Nichols, owner and inventor of D.O.A. Lures, was inspired to create the D.O.A. Shrimp at an early age. “Mark’s dad had a shrimp boat down in Galveston, Texas,” says Capt. Ed Zyak, of D.O.A Lures. “Mark spent hours on the boat handling shrimp. He would watch the shrimp in the big holding tanks, study how they moved, and mimic what he observed in his lures.”

It is made of a G-Tek 2mm fleece lined neoprene palm for grip. The glove has a special design to make it windproof. So if you live or fish in a place where the wind is a common concern, then this glove will be very helpful to you. Some of the fishing chores might require you to use bare fingers. You can easily do those complicated kinds of stuff with this fingerless glove.
Well, some might find it funny, UV protection in fishing gloves? Well, health professionals found that the back of the hand is one of the most vulnerable areas of being affected by cancer because that is one part of our body that gets almost continuous exposure to the sun. That’s why, if you’re going for fishing in areas where powerful sun rays are apparent, having UV ray protection in your gloves is always a good thing.
Fish-fooling Feature: Although it looks a little dull in hand, once that tail is pulled through the water, it comes to life, seeming to propel the lure forward. Size: To target panfish, use the tiny 1-inch version with a 1/32-ounce jighead. When jigging for cobia, opt for an 8-inch grub with an 8-ounce head.
Releasing the line depends somewhat on the type of reel you’re using, but if you’ve got a closed push-button spinner reel, the job is fairly straight forward. Pushing the button releases the line and letting go stops it. When you cock the rod back, push the button, and when you point it, release it.
A chunk of fresh dead shrimp skewered to a J hook was the first bait I ever used to catch a saltwater fish. Casting off a seawall with my dad near the Miami Seaquarium, we caught blue runners, jacks, pinfish, grunts, ladyfish, stingrays and snappers. Not the most glamorous species, but the number of different fish that attacked our shrimp made a lasting impression.
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.
2) Stability: “A stable kayak for catfishing is important and maybe more so than for a lot of other types of fishing. With catfish, we’re often tangling with fish over 30 pounds. A stable kayak is necessary to safely land them without fear of tipping. Also, having one stable enough to stand in is a bonus for several reasons, including the ability to throw a cast net and ‘when nature calls.’”
The grip is another important matter. The gloves should contain proper grip in the important areas like the tip of fingers, palm, and wrist. A good pair of gloves with gripping ability gives you the chance to deal with fishes even in underwater. Also, it will be easy to control your hook, bait, and rod.
The Egret Vudu Shrimp is built from TPE, an extremely durable and stretchy material used in the soles of tennis shoes. “It’s very tough and can be hardened with other polymers, allowing for plenty of variation,” he says.

Many other factors relate to how well a fish sees a lure or lure color—so many, we can’t discuss all of them here. Time of day, wind velocity, types of dissolved particles in the water, sky color, season—all these and more affect one’s ability to catch fish on a certain lure color.

Supports Wildlife and Fisheries Management: Angling is an important wildlife management tool. For more than 100 years anglers have helped to contribute to wildlife and fisheries management efforts by helping to set seasons and creel limits. Wildlife populations of most fish species remain stable and in some cases flourish, a far cry from a decade ago when many species suffered from over harvest and the ill effects of pollution. Anglers also have a vested interest in and support many efforts to preserve and protect all species and the environment-all the while helping to increase biodiversity.
There is no wrong answer with either the complete fingerless glove, or the 3 fingered fingerless glove. Having your fingers exposed will typically grant you better grip, as your skin has more grip than a typical raw material. There are some gloves in the marketplace which offer grip all the way up to your fingertips, but the most common gloves typically just offer extra grip in the palm area. Plus, only having coverage on two fingers, and having three fingers exposed, is quite the different feeling, and one you would have to get used to.
The palms of the gloves come with a textured pattern so you don’t have to worry about your gear slipping out of your grip. Perfect for anglers of all skill levels, these cold weather gloves might be just what you need on your next fishing trip.
Don’t keep casting in the same area. When you’re lure fishing, it’s very important to move around and avoid playing out a particular area. Fish aren’t as stupid as you think, and they’ll start recognizing the lure eventually, making it less effective. If you get a lure spit back, it’s time to move elsewhere.
The Thrill: Fishing has a way of fulfilling an age-old need of pursuing and catching. The thrill lies in the challenge, such as stalking an elusive wild trout or matching the hatch. But there are many who will be quick to profess that it’s not the catching of fish that’s important, but the immeasurable life lessons that you will experience along the way.
The type of water you fish is important in choosing a hull design and length of kayak. Are you fishing moving water or still water? In faster currents, a 10- to 12-foot kayak with a flat bottom and an upward curvature (rocker) at the bow and stern is preferred. These attributes make it more nimble and allow you to quickly steer around boulders and downed logs, and through changing current seams. With a flat bottom and less of the hull on the water, the kayak can quickly pivot to change direction. A wider hull (about 31 to 35 inches) increases stability in fast turns. While such stability is beneficial in rivers, it reduces speed and increases weight.

These versatile hooks keep baits snag-free. Light gauge wire guards are most common, with plastic guards and monofilament guards also use. These can be used for live baiting or for rigging soft plastics when you need an exposed hook that won’t get snag in vegetation or structure.
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.
