It depends on how good your memory is when choosing the fish to take home at the end of the day. You don’t normally because the fish are out of water and can’t go that far if you are catching the same fish then you could split them up but if you want to split the fish up, it’s optional.
Fishing for Food: Wild fish are low in fat and cholesterol and high in protein. In fact, the American Heart Association recommends a regular diet of fish. Besides it’s a lot more challenging to catch that plate of fresh fish than to stroll endlessly down a supermarket aisle if you decide to keep your catch.
Well written post on fishing, kayak and canoe buyers guide. I am going to purchase Sit-On-Top Kayaks after reading this great post. Thanks for sharing with this. http://www.trollingbatteryadvisor.com/

The Catch 120 is an all-new fishing kayak featuring a wide and flat platform, a newly developed Ergocast dual-position seating system, and a large storage well. It comes in vibrant olive camo and lava colors, has a stable tunnel hull, and offers great value.
When fishing with sinking lures, vary the depth of the retrieve until you find where the fish are. You can do this but counting at a steady rate each time you cast and then starting the retrieve and progressively higher numbers. Once you find the depth where you get a bite, keep fishing that depth.
One of the most effective (and one of the first plugs you should add to your tackle box) is the long, narrow minnow imitation in three to four inch length, the original is made by Rapala. It floats when its not moving and dives shallowly when it’s retrieved. Add a split ring to the eye if it doesn’t have one. Cast it out and wait until the rings on the surface of the water dissipate, then retrieve it slowly or fast, stopping suddenly and maybe throwing in an occasional twitch.
Color: Start out with a basic selection of black, white and chartreuse, and those colors will probably do the job. My favorite color on the Mississippi River was yellow. My top producer color on Oregon’s John Day River is motor oil or brown. Black and white are always contenders. Experiment in your area, and you’ll be able to dial in the local color preferences.
This may be the first time you hear me say this, but Go Fish was too artistic and dated for my enjoyment. I think that if I had seen this film when it was first released back in 1994 I would have been impressed. This was a very avant-garde film that tried very hard to discuss an issue that was very “hush-hush” back in the early 90s. Lesbians were very closeted back then and were not a major part of the culture norm as they are today (well, as much as we recognize them today). This makes for a very provocative film, but it also makes for a very dated film. This was my biggest issue with this film was that it nearly felt like a comedy instead of this symbolic struggle to pursue happiness like any heterosexual relationship. I realize that director Rose Troche was trying to show us that a lesbian relationship is no different than a male and female relationship and even lesbians talk like men talk about women, but somehow it just felt very dated and cliché for me. It didn’t open more doors in my mind to the lifestyle of lesbians, but instead gave me this dated image of this butch lesbian that is rebelling against something instead of embracing the true lifestyle.
The glove is waterproof with a glued external blind stitch to give it excellent durability. The liquid taped seams will prevent any moisture from entering the glove. It is very durable and will work for grabbing any fish that happens upon your hook.
Engineered above and below the waterline to be the perfect fishing platform, the Predator Family from Old Town has what it takes to target everything from small-pond largemouths to rough-seas stripers. The Predator comes loaded with features including a slip-resistant deck and the Element Seating System. The Predator MX, or Mixed Water, features a slightly more rounded hull, designed for moving water conditions without sacrificing stability and performance.
Storage Crate: Storage in a kayak is limited. There are several types of aftermarket crates available including the Jackson JKrate, but most anglers get started with a standard plastic milk crate. They fit nicely in the rear tank well of most kayaks for access to essential gear such as your cutting board, bait knife, pliers, fish grippers, tackle, and more. Attach sections of PVC to the crate to hold rods while not in use.
The Coast 120SE Angler is a sit-on-top kayak engineered for ergonomic comfort, high speed and stability. Unique features include an easy-access angled front hatch, two flush-mount rod holders, Scotty swivel rod holder, and stern storage platform with bungee. Made of multi-layer Poly-XR, an exceptionally durable ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene.
Kyle, a Philadelphia native, has been fishing since the day he was born and got into the sport of kayak fishing over ten years ago. Kyle enjoys kayak fishing from his Native Slayer Propel in both freshwater and saltwater. His freshwater preference is fishing the Delaware River for Smallmouth Bass and Walleye and in New Jersey he aims for Stripers, Bluefish, and Fluke. His specialty is back bay top water Striper fishing.
“Years ago I suggested on this web site, orange hand cleaner for removal of oil/tar. Spike emailed me asking that I keep an eye on the cleaned area for signs of “reactions”. I still have the OK Scrambler. The area cleaned looks the same as the rest of the kayak. I do store the kayak indoors and use “303” protectant about once per month. Perhaps the extra care has been helpful.” Thanks to Bill Hartman, Oxnard California.
Var i butikken mandag for at kigge bombarda rig’s. Har været på dagskursus for 2 år siden, men så langt strækker hukommelsen altså ikke længere. Henrik binder da bare lige 4 rig’s til mig. Kommer igen… senere og afhenter til fair pris og jeg er klar til Grønlands fiskeri uden at skulle vride cellerne for valg af knuder .
For me one of the worst things about fishing with gloves is losing dexterity. If you are like me and looking for a glove that is tight-fitting. A glove that will keep your hands warm, but also give you control and feeling of your reel, rod and lures I would recommend the Icearmor Dryskinz Gloves.
Some spoons are made to be cast, others to be trolled, and some even to be jigged. As a beginner you will most likely be using the most common type; the casting spoon. Casting spoons are easy to use. Like spinners, just cast and retrieve. You can vary your speed as long as it’s wobbling. If the spoon begins to spin, slow down your retrieve. Add a split ring to the eye of the lure for better action.
You can tell if a fish is biting by touch, by watching a loose line or a bobber, or by attaching a bell to the end of your rod. Make sure with a slow movement of the rod that there is no more slack in the line when you try to hook the fish.
Jig fishing takes a lot of concentration, unlike spinners, all the “action” (how a lure moves in the water) comes from you. If you don’t do anything the jig just sinks. The classic way to fish a jig is to cast it out, wait until it hits the bottom (you will know it has hit bottom when your line goes slack), then retrieve it in a series of hops. You make it hop by lifting the rod tip, lowering it, and retrieving your line. Try different speeds, big lifts, little hops, twitching until you find what works. Pay attention, though. Detecting the strike is the hardest thing about jigging.
Picture it: you’re a and you like to fish. You happen to have a child who also likes to fish, or you are just out with the guys on the lake having a good time. This is the making of a beautiful outing in the tradition of a cherished pastime. Yet, fishing can get boring and ineffective with lifeless bait. It also doesn’t help that you have to keep moving the rod all the time to give the bait the appearance of movement. But why settle for an illusion when you can have the real thing?
According to Johnston, there are three common mistakes people make when purchasing a kayak. The first is buying a $300 kayak from a big box store because it’s on sale. Kayaks are like most other things in life—you get what you pay for. Cheap kayaks are typically less durable, less stable, and less comfortable than quality brands.
We had another week with copious amounts of rain so the water clarity was murky and the amount of vegetation had not only increased in area but also in thickness. Every cast with the Rapala resulted in treble hooks with clumps of grass. I continued to throw the Rapala determined to stick with my game plan. I had purposely left most of my tackle trays back in my truck so I would be forced to stick with a lure/technique until it worked. This is actually one of my goals for this season – make a game plan and try and stick to it. Too many times I’ve gone out fishing and spent most of my time switching baits and tying on different lures instead of fishing. To paraphrase a well-known cliché, plan to fish and fish the plan. During days of tough fishing this hard to do but perseverance does have its rewards. While it might not be always be the size you are looking for but a small fish is better than no fish.
Made out of a superfabric, this glove ensures your hand is protected from all kinds of different dangers, including teeth from fish, knives and hooks. You can also protect your palm from any cut or puncture, as the fabric used within this fishing glove has been shown to protect your hand by up to 800% more compared to other fishing gloves within its class.

Here’s the reality of saltwater fishing: It can be a dangerous game sometimes. Whether wiring big pelagics, handling abrasive gear or simply spending too much time under a damaging sun, anglers must properly protect their hands.
The EZ ShrimpZ is available stand-alone or pre-rigged. The basic version rigs forward or backward on a jig head, or weedless on a weighted swimbait hook. With a pre-rigged bait, the weight on the hook is notched so it can be trimmed for a slower sink rate in shallow areas. Common game-fish targets include seatrout, redfish, flounder and snook.

Michael Ernst is a diehard fishing transplant from Minnesota. He grew up guiding for muskies from a Ranger Z20 Comanche and now plies the rivers and reservoirs of Tennessee in his Jackson Big Tuna kayak for everything from muskies and stripers to crappies and trout. “In all my years of guiding from my Ranger,” Ernst says, “I was never able to spot a big muskie, target it with a lure, and make it bite. They can see you or are affected by the vibration of the trolling motor, and your odds of connecting with a trophy fish are reduced. But I‘ve often spotted muskies in clear Tennessee rivers, paddled close enough to make a good cast, and watched the fish eat the lure. The paddle strokes associated with a kayak seem like a natural splashing sound to fish that doesn’t register as threatening. They continue their feeding routine, even though you’re only a couple yards away.”
Fish for Bass, Carp and catfish in this fun game. You can buy helpful items after each level, but be careful and spend your money wisely as you need a certain amount of money score to advance to the next level.
Find a place where deep water meets shallow water. Most fish big enough to catch will spend most of the day in deeper water and come into the shallows to feed. They won’t spend much time swimming around shallow water, however, so you’ll want to find the places they’ll come up for quick food sorties before darting away.
