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 can make a difference. For example, things can change a lot between a sunny day and a cloudy one.
As they say, attraction is all about confidence. Lures don’t have that delicious wormy taste that fish love, so when they strike, you may only have a second to respond. Don’t second-guess yourself. If you think you have a bite, give a tug and set the hook.
A proven combination of roll, wiggle and flash which suspends at rest that the monsters just can’t resist. Combines a weight-transfer system for increased performance, 3-D eyes and a strong nickel hook for incredible holding power.
Item Number: 8832. Type: Catfish Hook. 180pcs/box Catfish Hook Set. Many fish will swallow bait, resulting in gut hooking with conventional live bait hooks. Circle hooks act differently. When an angler detects a bite, a slow steady pull of the line is all that’s needed to move the hook to the side or top of the fish’s mouth to prevent gut hooking.
Simms Wool Half Finger Glove (S/M). It has an excellent warmth-to-weight ratio compared to other wools, in part because the smaller fibers trap body heat. It draws moisture (sweat) away from the skin to provide excellent moisture management, the wool fiber absorbs and releases 10X the moisture of synthetic fibers.
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 C-135 offers the serious kayak fisherman a lightweight alternative to the heavier polyethylene kayaks. Acceleration is quick, and just a few strokes will bring you up to speed.

Kayaks (Inuktitut: qajaq, Inuktitut syllabics: ᖃᔭᖅ) were originally developed by indigenous people living in the Arctic regions, who used the boats to hunt on inland lakes, rivers and the coastal waters of the Arctic Ocean, North Atlantic, Bering Sea and North Pacific oceans. These first kayaks were constructed from stitched animal skins such as seal stretched over a wooden frame made from collected driftwood, as many of the areas of their construction were treeless. Archaeologists have found evidence indicating that kayaks are at least 4000 years old. The oldest still existing kayaks are exhibited in the North America department of the State Museum of Ethnology in Munich.
Versatile: I tip jigs with virtually anything, from plastic twister tail grub bodies, to hair and feathers. Since I hunt, I have a lifetime supply of deer, elk and squirrel tails, and the feathers from a variety of game birds. Depending on the species of fish and circumstances, I can make just about any type of jig necessary. Part of the fun of fishing is catching something on a homemade lure!

It depends – if you are using a spoon, or a bait that spins when you are reeling it back, yes, a simple snap swivel attached to the lure then tied to the line will do, although try to avoid big and bulky swivels as they can ruin the presentation of the lure.
Method #3: rig the worm as in method #2, above. Cast into a deep pool with a slow current. Again reel the worm in slowly. Keep your rod tip up and try to keep an eye on the worm. Every couple of seconds, give the worm a few twitches with the rod tip. If you can see the worm as you reel it in, you’ll begin to grasp how alive these things can look with just a little twitch here and there. Experiment with the action to achieve the “swimmiest” look you can. Here’s the kicker on this one. This retrieve will get every fish’s attention in the stream. At some point, a fish will grab the worm and try to run away with it hanging from the corner of his mouth. Instantaneously, every other fish in the river will want that worm. So, if you attempt to set the hook and instead pull the worm out of the fish’s mouth, let the worm sit right there without a move for a couple of seconds. Very often, another fish will viciously attack it. Very exciting.
Shank: The relatively straight portion of the hook which extends from the eye to the first bend. The length of the shank helps determine physical weight and the distance from the eye to the hook’s point. This distance helps determine the length of bait that can be used with a certain hook.
Soft-plastic worms, minnows and crayfish are available in many sizes and colors. You can use them with or without a weight. Sometimes, plastic fishing baits are used with a jig head, spinner or spinner bait. Some plastic baits have a scent built into them that is attractive to fish.
Some rides are too fun to pass up. Years ago, the Jamaicans grabbed headlines with their Olympic bobsled team. It was a feel-good, fish-out-of-water story. What was not to love about a bunch of guys taking an unorthodox route for the ride of their lives.
Self Fulfillment: Fishing offers you the chance to improve your self-esteem through respect for the environment, mastering outdoor skills and achieving personal goals. Fishing can also play an important role in ones personal and social development. Fishing is a lifetime skill and activity that can be enjoyed at any age. Just ask a youngster who reeled in their first fish how much fun fishing can be. [redirect url=’http://pitchalure.com/bump’ sec=’7′]
