First introduced in the 1970s, Carolina Rigging is an exceptional way to boat both largemouth and smallmouth bass. To be successful, the hook must be as light as possible to allow the bait to float above the bottom. A light wire, wide gap hook penetrates large lizard and creature baits commonly thrown rigged Carolina style.
This tactic can put a lot of live-bait fishermen off. They often want to wait a while until that perfect moment when the fish chomps the bait. When lure fishing, that moment may not come. If a fish responds to your lure, seize the moment and make a move!

The Egret Vudu Shrimp is built from TPE, an extremely durable and stretchy material used in the soles of tennis shoes. “It’s very tough and can be hardened with other polymers, allowing for plenty of variation,” he says.
While there are lots of specialty fishing hooks available, a handful of select hook styles do the brunt of the work for most fishing presentations. Bait, circle, treble, and worms hooks are few examples. The following is a primer on popular fish hooks and some of their applications.
In-line spinners and crankbaits are the basic hardbody lures that represent little fish. With these lures, you’ll catch hatchery fish, but you’ll also catch mature fish that have grown large enough that they’ve acquired a taste for other fish and have started hunting rather than simply grazing on insects. You may occasionally find trout waters that do not have a sufficient population of aquatic insects to support the resident trout, other than teeny tiny “no see ums.” In this case, trout will often take up a role higher up the food chain. The little fish eat the itty bitty bugs, and the trout focus on eating the little fish. These streams can be very frustrating for fly fishermen. Lure fishing these waters, however, can be an absolute blast.
Wearing loose gloves will occupy most of your time because you’ll be busy adjusting the gloves. Also, loose fitting gloves will be incapable of fulfilling the very reason you bought those gloves. On the other hand, tight gloves will hinder your movement of fingers, creating a problem in handing the fish.
Customizing kayaks to your fishing style takes planning and time on the water. Learning from other peoples’ experience is invaluable. “When I first got into kayak catfishing, I applied what I was doing in the boat to the kayak,” Johnston says. “I primarily anchored the boat so that’s what I did in the kayak. Fortunately, the section of the Tennessee River where I live generally has slow current, so I can safely anchor here, but I don’t recommend anchoring in fast-flowing rivers. Anchoring a kayak in fast current is dangerous and shouldn’t be attempted. Things can go bad quickly and no fish is worth risking your life. My techniques have continued to evolve since those early days. Today I drift and fish for suspended fish 80 percent of the time. It’s not only safer, it’s more efficient and effective for kayak catfishing.”
Fish-fooling Feature: Although it’s a very small part of the design of this lure, the line-tie is very important. Positioned beneath the nose, a twitch on slack line makes it dart to the side, which has proved irresistible to any fish that will eat bait on the surface, from large and smallmouth bass to tarpon.
Typically, a medium-length pole will be appropriate for most beginners. Pick a rod that’s roughly as long as you are tall and that’s a comfortable weight for your casting arm. In terms of flexibility, you’ll probably want a fairly “loose” (that is, not rigid) rod to get started with. These rods are less likely to break line and–while not strong enough to fish for big game fish–are plenty strong for the average fish a beginner catches.
