Similarly, Rich Hohne, marketing manager at Simms Fishing Products, says that the company’s SunGloves have taken off in popularity in South Florida, primarily among inshore anglers who are as concerned about sun damage as anything.
The two basic kinds of reels are baitcast reels, which spool vertically when you’re holding the rod, and spinning reels, which spool perpendicular to the rod. Spinning reels are more common for the beginner, and are available in open and closed varieties. Closed varieties are generally operated with a push-button and are great for the beginner.
While bottom fishing or jigging can be done from small boats, it was long thought that effective trolling required speeds of five to ten knots, a speed well out of the range of someone paddling. However, the discovery that fish could be taken at much lesser speeds has increased the popularity of kayak fishing.
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. the line tight and use your arms to pull it toward you, then reel in the slack line.
As a general rule, you should use brighter baits on sunny days, and darker baits when the sky is cloudy or overcast. Water clarity and depth are also determining factors in your choice of lures. When fishing in clear deep lakes light penetrates much deeper and all colors are more visible than in stained or muddy water. Red shades are the first to become invisible to fish, with blues and greens showing up much better as water depth increases. A notable exception to this rule is the use of 2-toned soft plastic lures that feature a darker head color and a fluorescent white, pink or yellow tail color. Many anglers use soft plastic lures colored like this when fishing in cloudy weather.

Commonly referred to parts of a fish hook are: its point – the sharp end that penetrates the fish’s mouth or flesh; the barb – the projection extending backwards from the point, that secures the fish from unhooking; the eye – the loop in the end of the hook that is connected to the fishing line or lure; the bend and shank – that portion of the hook that connects the point and the eye; and the gap – the distance between the shank and the point. In many cases, hooks are described by using these various parts of the hook. Example: Wide gap, 2X Long Shank, Hollow Point, Turned Down Ring Eye Bait hook.

Keep your lures clean. When you’re fishing, as you reel your lure back in, take a few seconds to check the status of the lure and clean it up if necessary. In certain fishing conditions, lures can get gunky with weeds, twigs, and other debris, making them less effective at attracting fish and less effective at looking real. Make sure your lures are clean and ready to go before you recast.
A bid of no-trump is best when you have 15 high-card points, and your hand’s distribution is balanced, meaning a 4-3-3-3, 4-4-3-2, or 5-3-3-2 combination. You should also have all suits stopped, meaning you have the A, the K-Q, the Q-J-10, and/or the J-10-9-8 in each suit. These card combinations will prevent your opponents from taking a run of tricks in one suit. Most of the time, however, you’ll have to make do with “probable” stoppers, such as K-x, Q-J- x, Q-10-x, or even Q-x-x.
Any color readily seen provides an advantage, but the ease with which a fish can spot a lure against the prevailing background often is more important than the lure’s color. It’s helpful, therefore, to know the position from which a fish will view your lure and against what backdrop. If the fish will see your lure from the side against a weedy green background, a lure that contrasts with that background will stand out better. This is why, for example, a dark-colored lure may work best at night. After dark, predator fish often position themselves so they can see silhouettes of prey passing overhead against the somewhat lighter sky, and dark colors create sharper outlines.
Cloudy or dark water will call for a larger lure. Even if the fish you’re going for aren’t whoppers, you may need a large lure to get their attention. On the other hand, a large lure won’t be necessary in crystal clear water regardless of fish size. Large fish will still be attracted to small lures in high-visibility conditions. This means that you can use a smaller, more maneuverable lure and actually increase your chances of nailing a fighter.
At the end of the day, finding fishing gloves which offer you the right amount of protection, performance and comfort is what will comprise the ideal glove for you. This may be vastly different than your fishing buddies, and this is perfectly fine. What matters is that you have a fishing glove which helps you catch the most fish as possible, while ensuring you return back home in the same physical condition as when you left for your fishing trip. Have fun on your next fishing expedition with the best possible fishing gloves for your needs!
There are also some fishing gloves which have a fingerless design. This does not mean that your entire fingers are exposed, but just the tips of each of your fingers are without a glove cover. Clearly, this type of glove is intended for warmer weather, and not for ice fishing. These kinds of gloves are just another design feature, to help you determine what kind of feel you like best. Some people like to have their tips of their fingers exposed, as they feel it gives them a better grip than any glove can at the tip – others don’t notice a difference. This just comes down to what kind of glove makes you most comfortable in the weather environment in which you fish the most often.
Anchor Trolley: An anchor trolley is a pulley system that runs along the side of the kayak from front to back. It allows you to easily attach things such as an anchor or driftsock, and adjust their position along the length of the kayak depending on how you want to be positioned in wind or current. If you plan on anchoring, install an anchor trolley on each side of the kayak. Doing so allows you to attach an anchor to one side while deploying a driftsock off the other. Driftsocks can be used to slow your drift speed in wind, and deployment off the front of the kayak while anchored minimizes back-and-forth swing that sometimes occurs when fishing in wind.
Glacier Glove – Glacier Glove has a long line of gloves for you to choose from, each of which employs a different feel and design.

If you want a glove which is fingerless, they have those as well. If you want a glove that is in white or black or possibly even in camouflage, they have all of those options. You can purchase fishing gloves which have extra protection around your whole hand, or just in the webbing between your thumb and pointing finger. No matter what your needs are, you can find the right fishing glove based on the color and design you want.
