Cast your line, and instead of starting to reel in or troll right away, let your lure sink to the bottom. As soon as your line goes slack, give it a tug to simulate a bounce off the bottom. Repeat this bouncing action as you retrieve. This is a great attention-grabbing technique that doesn’t take long to learn and boosts your chances of a bite.
Equally important is the ability to load and haul your kayak. Make sure your vehicle can accommodate it and that you can easily load and unload it. Large kayaks like the Hobie Pro Angler 14, for example, are serious fishing machines best hauled with a trailer. But I can easily load my 12-foot Hobie Outback on top of my Tahoe. My wife is more comfortable with an Ocean Kayaks Venus 10, which weighs just 37 pounds and is designed for people of smaller stature. Wheeled hand carts like the Ascend Cart with its 10-inch inflatable wheels and the C-Tug with puncture-proof solid wheels are great options for getting your ‘yak to the water.
Since its introduction, Hobie’s Mirage pedal-powered line-up has revolutionized kayak fishing. The choice of tournament champions, they can access more water more efficiently and quietly than any competing design.
Point: This is the business end of the hook. In recent years manufacturers have been in a race to develop the “newest and best” point. Whether chisel, trocar, needle, knife edge or rolled–they must be sharp to land the big ones.
These cards are ridiculously stiff, and therefore, virtually impossible to shuffle. They are also very difficult for small hands to hold. And, worst of all, the company will not allow product to be returned. It’s only $6.99, but I dislike wasting money, period. COULD NOT BE MORE DISAPPOINTED OR ANGRY!
“In addition, since your range is reduced, you learn to slow your approach. You spend more time at each lay-down tree, and fish structure from all angles and with multiple lures. I think you become a smarter and more thorough angler, not catching only fish that are willing to pounce on the first lure through their territory. Finally, your reward is heightened in a kayak. This year I landed a 44-pound striper from my Big Tuna. While it would have been exciting in a boat, the feeling was indescribable in the kayak. I still have a small aluminum boat that I use occasionally for longer distance outings but every time I use it, I find myself wishing I was in my kayak.”
Spoons are metal lures designed to mimic the action of a swimming baitfish or minnow. They’re one of the most popular of all fishing lures because they’re easy to use and are versatile. Depending on where and how you’re fishing, you’ll want the right spoon – casting, weedless (or topwater), jigging or trolling spoons. Different spoons have different actions. And there are a variety of colors depending on the type of water and species you’re fishing. Ask your tackle shop which ones you need.
That’s where Animated Lure comes in—a self-propelling lure that takes care of the tedious work for you. You can use that valuable time to bond. After all, fishing is often meant to be a social experience. It can enhance the professional fisherman’s experience, too. Whatever your situation, your focus should be about catching big game, not bobbing the rod up and down and casting the line over and over again.

You can use thicker fishing gloves in warmer environments; it all comes down to a comfort level. Because most thicker fishing gloves come with a Velcro strap, no matter how much your hands may sweat, your gloves should stay on tight. What you will want to ensure is that your thicker fishing glove is machine washable, as the smell from within each glove after each fishing trip will be one that you will want to clean out.
Kayaks can be one of the most enjoyable and efficient ways to catch catfish. Their transportability and mobility to launch and navigate in areas not accessible to traditional fishing boats gives you an edge. Plus, there’s an added level of simplicity and tranquility, and excitement when you’re just inches from the water and battling catfish big enough to take you on a Tennessee sleigh ride.

Plugs are constructed from hollow plastic or wood to resemble baitfish, frogs or other prey. They usually sport two or three treble hooks. These hard bodied lures can be fished at almost any depth, as some are made to float or dive or both. Depending on the design, a plug will wobble, rattle or gurgle. They come in all sizes, and most of them have some sort of plastic lip that allows them to dive when you pull them through the water. Different kind of plugs include: crankbaits, jerkbaits, surface plugs, floating/diving plugs, and poppers,
Gap: Narrow gaps are best suited for live baiting, when hiding the hook is important. A wide gap excels when used with thick-bodied baits where penetration through the baits body and into the fish is required.
