As they say, attraction is all about confidence. Lures don’t have that delicious wormy taste that fish love, so when they strike, you may only have a second to respond. Don’t second-guess yourself. If you think you have a bite, give a tug and set the hook.
Bait hook shapes and names include the Salmon Egg, Beak, O’Shaughnessy, Baitholder, Shark Hook, Aberdeen, Carlisle, Carp Hook, Tuna Circle, Offset Worm, Circle Hook, suicide hook, Long Shank, Short Shank, J Hook, Octopus Hook and Big Game Jobu hooks.
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 100 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.
Try trolling. Nothing could be easier on a lazy fishing day than trolling behind your boat with a spoon, plug or spinner lure. It’s also extremely effective, mimicking the behavior of a traveling bait fish, minding its own business and covering a great amount of ground.
STYLE: L224BP. These hooks work great for freshwater fishing as well as saltwater using most types of bait. They have great strength for their size and hold their sharpness. I use these hooks when fishing for Trout, Bluegill, panfish and Perch.
These are the same cloth-backed vinyl work gloves used by commercial fishermen for the toughest, nastiest jobs. They feature a doubledipped, seamless PVC non-slip surface from the wrist to the fingertips and a high-top cuff that extends up your arm to keep your sleeves dry while providing excellent grip.
Checking the material of the fishing gloves is essential. A rubber glove would not have the breathability and low weight. Advanced raw materials will help you to have good breathability and allow you to handle the fishes more easily and quickly. The listed fishing gloves are made of high-quality raw materials.

Imagine you find yourself on a calm lake when the wind unexpectedly picks up. Or maybe you troll into a part of the river with cloudy water. In these situations, your lure’s most intriguing qualities might be nullified. Applying a little scent to your lure will help fish find their way to your hook even in rough waters. Make sure to use organic and eco-friendly fishing scents so you can protect your favorite fishing spots. Contaminating your local fishing hole with harmful chemicals isn’t worth any catch.
SIK or SOK: Most fishermen prefer self-bailing sit-on-top kayaks (SOK), especially for saltwater fishing. They are inherently safer, since they can roll over without filling with water, and they give the angler more room to move around or even throw a leg over the side for stability when dealing with a fish. Sit-inside kayaks (SIK) are preferable for moving waters and in situations where a lighter-weight craft is desirable. They also provide a drier ride than a sit-on-top kayak.
Plastic kayaks are reasonably resilient watercraft. However, they can suffer cracking, deep scratches, and gouging that threaten the integrity and water tightness of the hull. In these instances, repair…
Size: For crappies, cast to likely cover or structure with a 1/16-ounce Phat Flies version and slowly twitch it through submerged limbs or over rock. When you are ready for bottom-hugging grouper or snapper, drop a 3- to 4-ouncer (Spro makes these up to 6 ounces) on the wreck or rocks they live in, and slowly jig it to the surface.

Kayak fishing is fishing from a kayak. The kayak has long been a means of transportation and a stealth means of approaching easily spooked fish, such as cobia and flounder. Kayak fishing has gained popularity in recent times due to its broad appeal as an environmentally friendly and healthy method of transportation, as well as its relatively low cost of entry compared to motorized boats.
