As a general rule, you should use brighter baits on sunny days, and darker baits when the sky is cloudy or overcast. Water clarity and depth are also determining factors in your choice of lures. When fishing in clear deep lakes light penetrates much deeper and all colors are more visible than in stained or muddy water. Red shades are the first to become invisible to fish, with blues and greens showing up much better as water depth increases. A notable exception to this rule is the use of 2-toned soft plastic lures that feature a darker head color and a fluorescent white, pink or yellow tail color. Many anglers use soft plastic lures colored like this when fishing in cloudy weather.
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 via the use of value-laden descriptions such as “game” and “coarse” fishing to describe different disciplines.
The most popular of those materials are GORE-TEX. The specialty of Gore-Tex is, it doesn’t just keep moisture out of your hands, and also it lets the moisture inside your gloves to escape. If you tend to sweat frequently, this type of materials keeps your hands dry.
You can tell if a fish is biting by touch, by watching a loose line or a bobber, or by attaching a bell to the end of your rod. Make sure with a slow movement of the rod that there is no more slack in the line when you try to hook the fish.
This game is sometimes played with special cards, and sometimes with a 54-card pack including two jokers, which act as normal cards forming a pair. Jonny Groves describes a similar game played in the USA, and suggests that a pair of jokers should be scored as 2 points rather than 1 since it is harder to make than other pairs. For similar reasons, collecting two pairs of the same rank should score 3 points rather than 2.
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.
The favorites include twister tails, rubber shad and specialized rubber worms designed just for trout. These are all very simple to rig and use. A small white or black twister tail or plastic shad rigged on a jig head can be cast a good distance and retrieved in a straight line at a moderately slow speed with great success. The tails of these lures offer all the action you need to trigger a strike from a hatchery fish or even a big monster looking for protein power snack. You basically fish these lures just as you would a straight-line spinner. The plastic worm is fished differently, however.
Another thing to consider when it comes to durability is the type of water that you typically fish within. If you fish within freshwater or saltwater, it will have an effect upon your gloves, and how long they last. If you have some gloves which are made out of a thinner, absorbent material, then having those kinds of gloves around saltwater will not work, as the salt water will eat those gloves up.
A variant Backstab Fish is played in Adelaide with 108 cards including four jokers. There are 4-10 players, 7 cards each are dealt and the aim is to make sets of four equal cards, suits being ignored. At your turn you ask a specific player for a specific number of cards of a rank of which you hold at least one: for example you could ask a player for three sixes if you hold a six. The player gives you the exact number of cards you asked for, if she has them: if not – for example if she only has two sixes – you have to draw a card from the stock and the turn passes to the player you asked. In this game you are not required to lay down four of a kind. You can keep them as a basis for asking for more cards of that rank, but if you do not put them down you may lose some or all of them if another player asks for them.
“I also recommend a paddle leash, a whistle for safety, a dry bag, and a waterproof box like Plano’s Guide Series or Pelican’s Micro Case for your wallet and phone,” Wendel says. “No matter where you fish, keep gear simple and within reach.” Kayakers live by the motto of leash it or lose it. Simply put, anything that doesn’t have a leash attached is susceptible to being knocked overboard and lost if your kayak flips.

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.

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.
If you’re an early riser, get out there before the sun’s up to enjoy a morning fishing session. If the thought of setting your alarm clock for 4:30 gives you the willies, aim for an early evening fishing plan.
