The oldest known hooks were recently unearthed by archeologists in a Jerimalai cave in East Timor, Australia. Through radiocarbon dating of the surrounding soil, scientists have estimated that these relics are between 16,000 to 23,000 years old.
Learn to dead stick. Use a surface or topwater lure to imitate the behaviors of an injured or otherwise vulnerable bit of prey. If fish are hesitant, using this technique can get even cautious fish to start biting.
Move the rod tip, causing the lure to move in place very gently, then remain still for another brief period. Repeat brief movement of the rod tip, moving the lure in place. The movements should look erratic and sinking, but easy to catch.
Remember to take into account how the light above the water will effect visibility below. Obviously, if you’re fishing at night, the color of your lure isn’t going to matter, but small differences in light during the day can make a difference. For example, things can change a lot between a sunny day and a cloudy one.
The gloves are breathable so you won’t build up too much sweat while you’re wearing them. Consider the type of fishing you want to do before you purchase any gloves. It can mean the difference between keeping or losing your fingers.
Rod Holders: Several rod holders are made specifically for kayaks such as Scotty and Ram brands. “How many rod holders you add to your kayak and where you place them is up to you,” Johnston says. “I have four rod holders mounted on my kayak and I adjust their positions based on the type of fishing I’m doing. Also make sure the butt ends of your rods fit into the holders and can be easily removed.” Kayaks like the Old Town XL have pre-installed mounting plates on the hull to install Yak Attack GearTracs, which allow convenient mounting and removal of rod holders and other accessories anywhere along the gunnel.

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.

In the water, the D.O.A. Shrimp falls slowly and level, imitating a real shrimp heading for the bottom. “The D.O.A. Shrimp is different than a lot of the shrimp-imitation lures on the market today,” says Zyak. “Many of the new lures look more realistic than the real thing but can’t compare to the action of the original D.O.A. Shrimp.” [redirect url=’http://pitchalure.com/bump’ sec=’7′]
