One important thing to note is that these gloves are not waterproof. They are not designed to be dipping your hands in ice water. However, when fishing on cold weather days, these would definitely would be my go to pair.
I would also recommend adding new Zoneloc hooks to this guide. It is a cool new design that locks fish in the main bend quicker and protects from them barb. Also with Zoneloc’s offset main bend it keeps fish in the “sweet spot” and helps increase fish retention.
Handling the fishes are pretty easy with this fishing glove. If you are a professional fisherman, you will know how frustrating it is to handle or release large fishes. The added grip makes it sure to handle and release the fishes more easily.
“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.”
Soft plastic baits encompass a variety of different lures, mostly used for bass fishing. The classic soft plastic bait is the worm. These type of baits are created by pouring liquid plastic into a mould and adding dyes, metallic flakes, or even scent. They can resemble the natural forage of fish, like worms, crawfish, lizards or frogs, but some plastic baits don’t resemble anything you might find in or out of the water; these are referred to as creature baits or “critters.” The soft plastic bodies of these lures, encourage fish to hold on to them a little longer before they spit them out, giving the angler a better chance to set the hook.
Lights: If you plan on fishing after dark, check regulations regarding nav-light requirements for kayaks. Many lights on the market meet regulations. I use the Yak Attack Visi-Carbon Pro. It’s an LED light powered by AA batteries on a pole that easily breaks down for storage when not in use. Reflective tape added the hull also can make you more visible at night.
If you get a bite immediately stop reeling in and very slowly move the lure left and right until bobber goes under the water. The second it does yank very hard and forcefully. You do this because when the fish bites it and you yank, the fish will get the hook caught in it’s lip and you can then reel it in.
“And quite often when he was light-tackle fishing, sometimes it would involve long fights, and you’d often have to wind very quickly if the fish was coming at you or we were running it down,” he adds. “So gloves were always good there too. But you want them to be light gloves, first and foremost. You just want to prevent blistering.”
Fishing jigs have weighted metal heads and a tail made of animal hair, soft plastic, feathers or rubber. Anglers sometimes add a minnow or piece of pork rind to the fishing jig’s hook.
