Now, while a simple Zebco-style spincast outfit may work fine, they’re not always very good at casting thin flimsy line, which is a necessity. Some of the pricier spincast reels do quite nicely, but a lightweight spinning reel with a medium action 6-foot rod is a better place to start for most fishermen. Some trout fishermen love the challenge of an ultra-light set-up, but this is not necessary. The smaller the reel, the smaller the crank ratio. The shorter the rod, the less shock absorber effect you’ll have, meaning you’ll have to use your drag setting and brains to avoid breaking the line. In other words, landing the fish is more difficult. Shorter rods also make it tougher to cast long distances.
Kayak Fishing has taken off dramatically in South Africa. Game fish are caught along the coastline North and South of Durban. Large fish such as Marlin and Sailfish can be caught. On the east coast of the United States, the kayak is quickly becoming a favorite method for accessing fishing spots in the Chesapeake Bay and the Intercoastal Waterway.
Construction: The fact that this lure is made of balsa offers two distinct advantages to anglers. First, the inconsistency of wood allows for a lure that will be erratic, which is a good thing. Second, lets anglers work the bait both on the surface (since it is very buoyant) and beneath.
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.
It can happen that you finish all the cards in your hand, either because someone else asked you for the last cards that you had, or you just got a book made up of your last four cards. If you have no cards then you can draw new cards from the pile on the table, the same number of cards as you got at the start of the game.
Plastic frogs have become very popular lately. Frogging hooks have a spring wire on the front that screws into the frog’s nose. Once secured, the bait remains free to pivot in any direction when the hook is set. Of course, the frog rig excels in lily pads and other thick vegetation.
A: Yes. For public fishing areas and access sites, use Indiana’s Where to Fish Finder. You can also contact your area Fisheries Biologist. If the position is vacant, contact the Regional Supervisor listed.
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.
He spends a lot time trolling offshore for salmon on Lake Michigan in his Hobie Pro Angler 14, and suggests anglers who fish big water add the following items: a VHS radio to communicate with the Coast Guard and other boaters; flares to signal for help; navigational and running lights when operating in low-light conditions; and a safety flag to make your vessel more visible to other boats from a distance and in choppy conditions. Consider a YakAttack Visicarbon Pro Safety Light and Flag combo to keep you visible on any body of water.

Fishing lures come in many shapes, colors and styles. There are crankbaits, spinnerbaits, umbrella rigs, topwater frogs and rats and who-knows-what, jerkbaits, jigs, buzzbaits and a whole lot more. Lures are designed for specific techniques, and to be fished a certain way. In some cases fish can’t get enough of a certain lure at one time of year, then won’t look at it at other times. Key to fishing with lures is experience and an open mind. Learn what your fish want to eat, then match it with your lures, but always be ready to learn a new technique or try a different tactic.
