“Years ago I suggested on this web site, orange hand cleaner for removal of oil/tar. Spike emailed me asking that I keep an eye on the cleaned area for signs of “reactions”. I still have the OK Scrambler. The area cleaned looks the same as the rest of the kayak. I do store the kayak indoors and use “303” protectant about once per month. Perhaps the extra care has been helpful.” Thanks to Bill Hartman, Oxnard California.
Hook points are commonly referred to by these names: needle point, rolled-in, hollow, spear, beak, mini-barb, semi-dropped and knife edge. Some other hook point names are used for branding by manufacturers.
Var lige en tur på østkysten i går og landede på det 3. spot (slipshavn ved Nyborg) ved ni tiden, her var jeg helt alene.. lige bortset fra de mange fisk der viste sig i overfladen konstant i det fine vejr.. Der gik ikke mange kast før den første lille hårdt kæmpende torpedo var oppe og vende, og sådan fortsatte det de næste 3-4 timer inden jobbet kaldte.. Da jeg forlod spottet, var der foruden jeg, 8 andre fiskere, som nød godt af de mange fisk som gik livligt til hugget.. Jeg endte dagen med godt 35 stk. landede regnbuer deraf 4 dublet.. ligeligt fordelt på alive rejen og svovlormen.. De små fyre på 35-45 cm. går vældig godt til den på det lette grej, og der røg da også et par stykker med hjem til grillen, som skal nydes i aften.. De mange regnbuer har den sidste uges tid fordelt sig godt langs hele nyborg fjord…
Love these hooks. They stay sharp and can take some abuse. Have used both the standard and the red. Not sure if the red actually makes trout think the bait is wounded or not, but you never know! LOL… These are the only hooks you will find at the end of my line when fishing live bait whether it be shrimp or croaker. Just be sure to have a couple of different sizes depending on how big the bait is at the time.

Artificial bait or fishing lures have been used to catch fish for thousands of years. Made from a wide variety of materials, colors, sizes, and styles, lures are used to attract fish and convince them to bite into the attached hook. If you want to fish with lures, you need to know the most common lure techniques and how you can use them to catch a fish.

“Because the keel weight is positioned under the shrimp’s belly, the bait itself wants to float upright. The EZ ShrimpZ won’t roll over on its side like most shrimp made from traditional soft plastics,” says Nussbaum.

The cards are thoruoghly shuffled and dealt out to the players one at a time clockwise. Some players will have one more card than others, but this does not matter. The player to dealer’s left begins by asking any other player for a specific card: “Heini, do you have the king of hearts?”.
These live bait hooks are made from light wire. Fine wire inflicts minimal damage to bait, keeping it lively longer than bait holder hooks. Aberdeens excels in thick cover where a snagged hook flexes easily, pulling free of hazards.
4) Storage: Kayaks have less storage than a boat, so kayak anglers pack judiciously. Larger models have more storage, including latched bow storage with a click seal cover. If your kayak has limited or unreliable dry storage, dry bags or a waterproof case like those made by Pelican can be invaluable for protecting items such as phones, wallets, and cameras.
Talking about metallic lures, if the weather is going to be sunny and the water conditions are fairly clear, than a silver fishing lure is a good idea. The goal is to choose a fishing lure that stands out and attracts attention. The combination of reflection from the sun and clear water allows silver lures to flash in the water, making them visible from quite a distance. However, if the day is overcast or mostly cloudy, or if the water is darker and cloudy, then a gold fishing lure is the best bet. Gold has superior reflective abilities and can still be quite visible even in darker conditions.
What’s on the menu? I always start by learning what the gamefish like to eat where I’m fishing. Asking a local fisheries biologist or angler usually produces this information, and then I try to “match the hatch” so to speak—using lures closely mimicking prey color, size and shape. Baits resembling predominant forage almost always elicit more strikes than baits that don’t. Be sure, however, you use the right lure for the right cover and structure. If you know a lake has lots of shad in it, for example, you may want to throw shad-colored lures, but only if you’re fishing areas where shad will be. If you move from open water to shallow grass beds, it may be best to tie on a crawfish imitation instead.
Now that you’ve got the basics down, we’re ready to tackle the subject head-on with our ten tips for lure fishing success. These tips and tricks are tried and tested by the pros. Keep your tackle box on hand and give them all a try to see what works best in your neck of the woods. Here we go:
This game is sometimes played with special cards, and sometimes with a 54-card pack including two jokers, which act as normal cards forming a pair. Jonny Groves describes a similar game played in the USA, and suggests that a pair of jokers should be scored as 2 points rather than 1 since it is harder to make than other pairs. For similar reasons, collecting two pairs of the same rank should score 3 points rather than 2.
When a new kayak guide for 2017 will be published? I am sure there are a lot of new models in markets now. For example new Old Town Loon angler series. There are already recommended as top sit-inside kayaks: https://outdoorempire.com/7-best-angling-kayaks-reviewed/, but not in your list.
Fish-fooling Feature: Although it looks a little dull in hand, once that tail is pulled through the water, it comes to life, seeming to propel the lure forward. Size: To target panfish, use the tiny 1-inch version with a 1/32-ounce jighead. When jigging for cobia, opt for an 8-inch grub with an 8-ounce head.
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 if you want really sturdy cards. Did I mention they are sturdy and have a nice box? Go Fish! ‘
Johnston got his first taste of kayak fishing about 10 years ago while on vacation and thought about how to rig one to tangle with catfish on Fort Loudon and Watts Bar impoundments of the Tennessee River. For Johnston, there’s no better rush than hooking into a monster fish in a kayak. “When a big catfish slams your bait, you feel it throughout the whole kayak,” he says. “As your rod doubles over, it starts to take the side of the kayak with it. That uneasy feeling you get until the secondary stability of your kayak kicks in is excitement like no other. Then you’re fighting the fish while it’s pulling you and the kayak wherever it wants to go. Kayak fishermen call it a sleigh ride, and it’s better than any amusement park ride out there.”
A variety of worm hooks exist to fish soft-plastic baits. Worm hooks feature a slight bend just below the hook eye for Texas-rigging plastics to make them weedless. Most worm hooks feature wide gaps to ensure adequate clearance for the point to penetrate a fish’s yap when setting the hook with a bulky plastic offering. These hooks are quite strong and feature solid penetrating power to hook fish. The Bass Pro Shops XPS Magna Superlock hook is an excellent worm hook choice with top ratings.
New Hampshire Fish and Game’s Aquatic Resources Education (ARE) program consists of two main parts that teach aquatic ecology, aquatic resources management, and angler education to various audiences. The Watershed Education program targets middle and high school teachers, while the Let’s Go Fishing program provides full-length courses and shorter clinics to public audiences and also reaches schools (grades 5-12).
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.
For Gene, kayak fishing is more than just fishing. It’s a passion he has to be on the water seeking the rewards that only he can find for himself. He believes that certainly someone can tell you where the fish are, but it’s up to you to get them in, and that is a feeling of accomplishment.

Construction: This bait is precisely the dimensions of threadfin shad…and menhaden. Match the hatch, baby. Fish-fooling Feature: The boot-shaped tail section of this lure is where the magic happens. The narrow piece of plastic that leads to the bulky, wide tail creates a very lifelike swimming action. [redirect url=’http://pitchalure.com/bump’ sec=’7′]
