Clean lines and a sleek design define the agile and sporty Strike series of kayaks. Maneuverable and stable, the Strike 120X offers plenty of speed, capacity, and storage space. The angler version is loaded with fishing features including flush-mount rod holders and flat mounting surfaces.
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.
The NCKFA is the premier meeting place for North Carolina kayak fisherman. The NCKFA was established in 2008 as a resource for those interested in fishing from kayaks, discussing trips and techniques, as well as meeting other kayak fisherman from NC. Our monthly meetings take place at Get:Outdoors , Great Outdoor Provision Company in Greensboro, NC, Hook Line and Paddle in Wilmington, NC, and other locations around the state. While you’re here join our NC kayak fishing forum for the latest NCKFA info, new trip reports, kayak rigging and everything else related to kayak fishing in North Carolina.Be sure to check the calendar regularly for updated meeting times and scheduled group trips. Always feel free to contact us with any questions or comments you may have.
These warm and comfortable neoprene gloves feature a no-slip grip construction that is heavy-duty, yet flexible. Easy-access to index finger and thumb allow for easy casting and knot tying.A secure Velcro wrist closure keeps the gloves in place while also keeping out the cold.
There’s also a widely held belief that obtaining fishing “wisdom” follows an upward evolutionary trajectory, in which many beginners start out with bait, moving on to lures and perhaps even flies later in their angling careers as their skill levels grow. Implicit in this picture is an almost inevitable value judgement concerning the relative worth or merit of each fishing style. Under angling’s informal but historically entrenched hierarchical class system, fly fishing is typically seen as the pinnacle of the sport and as somewhat superior to lure fishing, with bait fishing languishing at the bottom of the pile. In Great Britain, this angling snobbery is further reinforced via the use of value-laden descriptions such as “game” and “coarse” fishing to describe different disciplines.
Remember to take into account how the light above the water will effect visibility below. Obviously, if you’re fishing at night, the color of your lure isn’t going to matter, but small differences in light during the day can make a difference. For example, things can change a lot between a sunny day and a cloudy one.
Care needs to be taken when handling hooks as they can ‘hook’ the user. If a hook goes in deep enough below the barb, pulling the hook out will tear the flesh. There are three methods to remove a hook. The first is by cutting the flesh to remove it. The second is to cut the eye of the hook off and then push the remainder of the hook through the flesh and the third is to place pressure on the shank towards the flesh which pulls the barb into the now oval hole then push the hook out the way it came in.
SIK or SOK: Most fishermen prefer self-bailing sit-on-top kayaks (SOK), especially for saltwater fishing. They are inherently safer, since they can roll over without filling with water, and they give the angler more room to move around or even throw a leg over the side for stability when dealing with a fish. Sit-inside kayaks (SIK) are preferable for moving waters and in situations where a lighter-weight craft is desirable. They also provide a drier ride than a sit-on-top kayak.
AFTCO – There are a few different fishing gloves within the AFTCO brand, all of which offer you a solution for your needs. Mostly found in a royal or navy blue color, their gloves are fitted for your hands, and come with a Velcro strap to help ensure these gloves stay on your hands during each fishing trip. They have both full finger fishing gloves, as well as fingerless gloves, and are made out of a variety of different materials. The heavier the glove, the more protection you are offered, but also the more expensive each glove is. These gloves are excellent for saltwater fishing, and provide you with solid grip so you can grab any fish within the sea.
There are 7 main types of lures: jigs, spinners, spoons, soft plastic baits, plugs, spinerbaits, and flies. When you finish reading this, you will be able to recognize each of these lures on sight and have an idea of how to fish them (in fishing lingo this is called “Presentation.”)
They need to be safe and capable of facing up to a number of different factors. The fabric ought to be high-grade and nicely examined to apprehend how they may hold up inside the wild. Shelure anti-slip fishing gloves are the best in this sector. The fabric is durable and strong enough to withstand the elements.
