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.
Some spoons are made to be cast, others to be trolled, and some even to be jigged. As a beginner you will most likely be using the most common type; the casting spoon. Casting spoons are easy to use. Like spinners, just cast and retrieve. You can vary your speed as long as it’s wobbling. If the spoon begins to spin, slow down your retrieve. Add a split ring to the eye of the lure for better action.

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.
Talking about metallic lures, if the weather is going to be sunny 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.

The fact is, however, we often worry too much about all these variables and whether or not this color or that will catch the most fish. While knowing why fish may respond in one way or another to a particular color is useful, it’s possible to over-analyze the facts and fail to enjoy our fishing. I much prefer using some basic guidelines that have proven helpful regardless of when and where I’m fishing and what I’m fishing for. Perhaps they will be useful to you as well.

You will need to have tackles available in Go Fishing to be able to fish. This includes Bait, Hook, and Line. If any of the icon is black, new gears need to be purchased or fixed. Below is everything that you need to know and understand about Go Fishing Tackle setup
“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.
At the other end of spectrum lie large still-water fisheries that demand covering water. Here, a long narrow kayak in the 14- to 17-foot range, with less rocker, is best. Extra length and V-shaped hull or sharp keel line allow the kayak to track (hold straight line) better in wind and waves. This keeps it from spinning like a top on big water and makes it more efficient for paddling long distances. These kayaks are narrower as well, in the 26- to 30-inch range, for less resistance and greater speed. Kayaks in this category include the Ocean Kayaks Trident 15 Angler, with an optional rudder system for maneuverability, and the Wilderness Systems Tarpon 140 Angler.
