An early written reference to a fish hook is found with reference to the Leviathan in the Book of Job 41:1; Canst thou draw out leviathan with a hook? Fish hooks have been crafted from all sorts of materials including wood, animal and human bone, horn, shells, stone, bronze, iron up to present day materials. In many cases, hooks were created from multiple materials to leverage the strength and positive characteristics of each material. Norwegians as late as the 1950s still used juniper wood to craft Burbot hooks.  Quality steel hooks began to make their appearance in Europe in the 17th century and hook making became a task for specialists.
IS! Thought that was pretty amusing and wondered why in the world they had to select a picture of something we couldn’t even recognize. Also, if you don’t need STURDY cards you can buy “Go Fish” cards at your local stores for quite a bit less. You’d only want to pay this price if you want really sturdy cards.

By adding weight to the hook, instead of on the line, finesse baits appear smaller and less clunky. Weighted hooks are far more weedless as they eliminate the sliding weight which can snag in vegetation.
Avid kayakers can enjoy the features of sit-in kayaks, which may be equipped with an adjustable seat, molded-in cup holders, padded cushioning and roomy cockpits for extended time on the water. Sit-in kayak privide a little more protection from your environment while paddling, but can be more difficult to get in and out of. When browsing through kayaks for sale, you can find kayaks and canoesto help customize or store your kayak.
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.
For many fisherman, gloves are an essential piece of equipment. When cleaning fish, you want to ensure you filet the fish, not your fingers. And if you’re more of a catch and release guy, gloves will allow you to grip the fish without squeezing the fish (and damaging vital organs). Wetting the gloves will also ensure you don’t remove the fish’s protective slime layer while handling.
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.
As mentioned before, fish are attracted to differences in their environment. If your retrieve doesn’t change, fish will start to ignore it. Something as simple as a slight pause or a little tug can evoke a sharp attack if the moment is right!
Fish Finder: Companies like RAM, Scotty, and Yak Attack have a variety of mounts to install and remove fishfinders. Many kayaks today have a dedicated scupper hole for mounting a transducer. This allows you to launch and beach your kayak without damaging it. Most kayak fishermen power their sonars with small 7- to 9-amp-hour batteries. Johnston uses a small, waterproof lithium battery from Nocqua Adventure Gear designed for powering them.
Pull the fish in by pumping and lifting the rod vertically while simultaneously reeling. Don’t use the reel to pull in the fish, except for very small fish. Keep the line tight and use your arms to pull it toward you, then reel in the slack line.

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.

With help from his long-time friend Chris Parson, the pair began the forum board JerseyCapeKayakFishing.net.
I want to impress upon anglers the need to manipulate today’s shrimp lures expertly to draw strikes from species more effectively than anything I caught on my first trip in South Florida. Catching, buying and keeping a dozen shrimp alive is inconvenient and limiting; instead, you can use the latest shrimp plastics to successfully chase species such as bonefish, striped bass, drum and speckled trout.
Keep in mind that what works at one depth may not be nearly as effective at other water depths. So as you cast around and go from deeper pockets to shallower pools of water, don’t hesitate to change your fishing lure to see what is working best with the fish on that day, in that place.

Find a place where deep water meets shallow water. Most fish big enough to catch will spend most of the day in deeper water and come into the shallows to feed. They won’t spend much time swimming around shallow water, however, so you’ll want to find the places they’ll come up for quick food sorties before darting away.

Hooks are designed as either single hooks—a single eye, shank and point; double hooks—a single eye merged with two shanks and points; or triple—a single eye merged with three shanks and three evenly spaced points. Double hooks are formed from a single piece of wire and may or may not have their shanks brazed together for strength. Triple hooks are formed by adding a single eyeless hook to a double hook and brazing all three shanks together. Double hooks are used on some artificial lures and are a traditional fly hook for Atlantic Salmon flies, but are otherwise fairly uncommon. Triple hooks are used on all sorts of artificial lures as well as for a wide variety of bait applications.
Light spring wire appendages mounted to the hook’s eye grabs the soft plastic independently of the hook itself. The spring wire keeps the bait secure and off the shank of the hook for better hook sets. [redirect url=’http://pitchalure.com/bump’ sec=’7′]
