Learn to rip the surface. Use a surface lure to skip your lure across the surface to mimic the behavior of a flying insect or some other kind of prey. This can be especially useful in catching sunfish or other shallow-water freshwater fish.
Fishing is a living, breathing sport. Every time you walk out onto the dock or push off the shore, things are a little different than they were before. Even your best-known fishing holes change over time. Every cast is into slightly different waters, and there’s always something new staring up from below.
Method #2: thread the worm onto the hook so the worm lies flat. The point of the hook should be just a bit exposed, and the eye of the hook should be hidden inside the worm. In a section of the stream with a rocky bottom and minimal vegetation, cast the worm and allow it to sink to the bottom. Retrieve it extremely, almost painfully, slowly without twitching. You will feel the weight of the rocks against the sinker from time to time, but just keep reeling slowly — no jerking. The line will wrap around a rock and the worm will dangle downstream from the rock, appearing to swim upstream. Once the worm comes around the rock, it will be washed back downstream until the line again wraps around a rock. It will then begin swimming upstream again. So, the big picture is this. The worm swims up, flips down, swims up, flips down, and so on. It’s truly neat. It’s very important that you use small sinkers with this presentation. Larger sinkers will get hung up on the rocks. So if you need a lot of weight, it’s better to use a line of small sinkers. It’s also important that you use a heavier line, since the rocks will wear on the line due to friction. A flourocarbon leader would come in handy, for that reason.

After casting, keep your line still until the ripples in the water go away, then sweep your rod down to the surface of the water. Use the sweeping motion either slowly or quickly depending on the assertiveness of the fish.
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.

“I also recommend a paddle leash, a whistle for safety, a dry bag, and a waterproof box like Plano’s Guide Series or Pelican’s Micro Case for your and phone,” Wendel says. “No matter where you fish, keep gear simple and within reach.” Kayakers live by the motto of leash it or lose it. Simply put, anything that doesn’t have a leash attached is susceptible to being knocked overboard and lost if your kayak flips.
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.
Let the fish tell you what they want. Don’t stubbornly stick to a favorite lure or presentation even if it is not working. Fish can be very finicky, especially in highly pressured areas. Often they will respond to something they have not seen before when they are turning down regularly used lures.

The best gloves for fishing in cold weather will be lined or insulated. Most experienced anglers recommend choosing neoprene gloves that are 5 to 7 mm thick so you have plenty of protection from the cold wind and water. If the fishing gloves are constructed from latex you will want to make sure that they come with a fleece or thermal lining, and this can also be found on some neoprene pairs that are designed specifically for ice fishing. While warmth is crucial for your safety and comfort, you also want to make sure that the gloves are not too bulky that they restrict the movements of your fingers.
