Made of SuperFabric material, this fishing glove can deflect hooks, knives, and teeth too. Despite the incredible deflection system, it allows you to have an excellent grip on slippery fish to catch, clean or drag from the water.
To achieve the proper effect, cast and allow the jig the sink for a few moments. Then retrieve the jig at a slow rate while simultaneously and rapidly twitching your rod tip up and down. Rapid twitching means RAPID twitching. Your rod hand should bounce down perhaps 4x per second while your retrieve hand is making no more than one revolution per second. Try counting “one-one-thou-sand, two-one-thou-sand…” and so on to establish the rhythm of your cranking while bouncing your rod hand on each syllable. It takes a little practice to get the feel of it.
The site Cribbage.ca has a description of a French Canadian variation known as Merci, which is similar to Go Fish except that 10 cards each are dealt, and a player who forgets to say “merci” (thank you) when being given the requested cards must return the cards and the turn passes to the player who was asked.
Effectiveness: The jig is designed to mimic a minnow, or represent some other food source. Sometimes, a properly-fished jig will cause a reflexive for a game fish. While I have a tackle box full of various lures, I generally start out with a jig, and seldom have reason to switch.
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.
Now that you know the basic lures and how they are used, you should have an easier time starting your own collection. Buy only a few at a time, and take the time to learn to fish them. If you know anyone that fishes the same water you do, ask them what kind of lures they like to use and what they recommend.

Don’t keep casting in the same area. When you’re lure fishing, it’s very important to move around and avoid playing out a particular area. Fish aren’t as stupid as you think, and they’ll start recognizing the lure eventually, making it less effective. If you get a lure spit back, it’s time to move elsewhere.
Hunting gloves are essential when you’re fishing in the ice or out to catch a big fish. You wouldn’t want to handle them in bare hands because it would be tough for you to off-hook them without any hassle. The best fishing gloves give you the chance to have better control on the scenario.
Octopus hooks are short-shank hooks that feature a round shank and bend, but it’s not as dramatic as circle hooks. Octopus hooks are often used for bait fishing when minimal hook weight and size is essential for a natural presentation. These hooks are great for hooking a leech through the sucker. The Bass Pro Shops XPS Octopus hook is a good example and highly rated. A mosquito hook is a variation on this style.
Many fishermen, especially who are relatively new in the field of fishing chose random gloves over specialized ones. The result is facing uncomfortable situations. Veteran hunters will be the first one to tell you that finding the right pair of fishing gloves is important.

Another thing to consider when it comes to durability is the type of water that you typically fish within. If you fish within freshwater or saltwater, it will have an effect upon your gloves, and how long they last. If you have some gloves which are made out of a thinner, absorbent material, then having those kinds of gloves around saltwater will not work, as the salt water will eat those gloves up.

Small spoons, spinners, and jigs are excellent lures for locating fish. Once located, you can then work with different size, color and type of bait to entice the larger fish to take your offering. Always make sure to adjust your rod, reel, and line size to match the size lure and fish you are trying to catch. You should also vary your speed of retrieve and depth at which you are fishing when trying to locate your fish.
This game is called Authors in the USA, because it was originally played with special educational cards showing pictures of famous authors. These cards are still available and the idea has been extended to cards showing inventors, American presidents, explorers, baseball players and many other themes. A selection of different types of Authors cards is available from from amazon.com.
The next lure on the menu are crankbaits. The classic Rapala Floating Minnow is one of most productive patterns of all time, but mini-cranks can also produce amazing results. Look for a plug that will imitate small shiners (silver), suckers (gold), or sunfish. The beauty of using a plug is that you can experiment in a wide variety of ways. You can buy floating, sinking or neutral buoyancy plugs to help you reach different depths. If the plug has a plastic lip jutting out and downward from the front of the lure, it will swim downward when you reel. So, floating lures will swim downward until you stop reeling them, at which point they will slowly begin to float back to the surface. When you stop reeling a neutral buoyancy plug, it won’t float back to the surface, and it won’t sink any further — it stops dead in the water. Sinking plugs sink, of course. They sink face first when you reel and belly first when you stop. Other than these built-in perks, the action of the lure is totally up to you. Vary your retrieve from quick to painfully slow. A straight consistent retrieve works fine, but also experiment with jerky retrieves and start & stops. If you can convince the fish that the minnow is injured and weak, it will often trigger a strike.

Here’s how this might affect your fishing. Let’s say you’re fishing a heavily pressured lake where many anglers use dark-purple plastic worms. After a while, bass here might avoid all dark-purple worms equally because they view them as the same and have had bad experiences when eating things this color. But bass that have learned to shy away from watermelon worms might see watermelon/red flake worms as distinctly different and therefore an OK meal.
Because there are so many factors to consider when it comes to finding your fishing glove, it is vital that you first figure out the type of fish you fish for, as well as your weather environment and the type of water before making any decision. If you find a great glove, but are in the wrong environment, then it is no longer a great glove for you and your needs. You and your fishing buddies might have different needs, or have a difference in which kind of glove is best for you – that is perfectly acceptable. No matter how much the marketplace wants to tell you otherwise, there is not a one size fits all when it comes to gloves for fishing. What is important is that you find the fishing gloves which work best for you, so you can catch the most fish possible on each and every trip. [redirect url=’http://pitchalure.com/bump’ sec=’7′]
