Match the color to the water. Using the “right” color of lure is generally determined by water clarity. Murky water and dusk or night fishing requires bright-colored lures more easily seen by fishermen and fish alike. White and red lures are common in these conditions, while clear water conditions would call for more muted or naturally occurring colors, like brown, blue, black, and green.
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.

Moving clockwise, players take turns asking a specific player for a given rank of card. If someone asks you for a rank that you have, the cards are taken from your hand. if you do not have any cards of that rank, your opponent must go fish, taking one new card from the pile of cards.
When it comes to warmer environments, you have the choice between obtaining gloves which have full fingered coverage or ones which only cover up to a certain knuckle on your finger. There are also options which cover a couple of your fingers while also leaving three different fingers uncovered. Depending upon the type of fish you are fishing for, this could determine what kind of fingerless glove you should purchase. In addition to this, it is all about comfort, and finding the right fingerless glove options which is best for you is key towards keeping a pair of fishing gloves for the long-term.

A: No. Although fish are a delicious and nutritious source of protein found in Indiana, native fish that are caught can be released back into the water. Special handling techniques taught in the Go FishIN program help reduce fish injuries. If the caught fish is an aquatic invasive species (AIS), it must not be returned to the water. For more information, please read Indiana DNR’s AIS Information.
The hook point is probably the most important part of the hook. It is the point that must penetrate fish flesh and secure the fish. The profile of the hook point and its length influence how well the point penetrates. The barb influences how far the point penetrates, how much pressure is required to penetrate and ultimately the holding power of the hook. Hook points are mechanically (ground) or chemically sharpened. Some hooks are barbless. Historically, many ancient fish hooks were barbless, but today a barbless hook is used to make hook removal and fish release less stressful on the fish. Hook points are also described relative to their offset from the hook shank. A kirbed hook point is offset to the left, a straight point has no offset and a reversed point is offset to the right.
Not long ago, kayaks floated far from the mainstream fishing scene. But today they’re the fastest growing segment in angling vessels. Many manufacturers have become involved. Here’s a look at the allure of kayak fishing and how to get started.
“The flats guys have really gravitated to them,” Hohne says, “and the gloves just received the seal of recommendation from the Skin Cancer Foundation. That’s a really big deal for us, and we’re trying to get this designation on 90 percent of our line.”
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 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.

This is Go Fish without the stock pile. All the cards are dealt out as equally as possible to the players. A turn consists of asking a player for a rank (or a specific card if you play that version). If they have it your turn continues; if not the turn passes to the next player player to the left. As in Go Fish, you must have a card of the rank you asked for. Books of 4 cards are discarded. The game continues until all the cards are formed into books, and whoever gets most books wins – or you can score one point per book and play to a target score.

One other feature you should look out for, especially if you fish in areas where it is typically warmer and the sun is out more often, is finding fishing glove which can offer you protection from getting a sunburn. This is especially true for fingerless gloves, as you don’t want the tips of your fingers to get burnt badly while out on the boat, and, if you put sunscreen on the tips of your fingers, then they become more greasy, which means slippier, which then defeats the whole reason you have fishing gloves to start with.
Cast your line. Most beginners will cast side arm, using the same motion used to skip a stone across the water. Bring the rod back to your side and bring it smoothly in the direction you’d like to cast, releasing the line as you point in the right direction. [redirect url=’http://pitchalure.com/bump’ sec=’7′]
