Spinners are a great beginner lure because they are so easy to use. They are essentially a metal shaft with spinning blade. The hook can be bare or dressed. Dragging a spinner through water causes the blade to spin. The spinning motion of the blade creates sound and vibration that can be picked up by fish through their lateral line (you’ll learn more about this in the fish section.) This makes spinners an excellent choice for stained or murky water.

The type of water you fish is important in choosing a hull design and length of kayak. Are you fishing moving water or still water? In faster currents, a 10- to 12-foot kayak with a flat bottom and an upward curvature (rocker) at the bow and stern is preferred. These attributes make it more nimble and allow you to quickly steer around boulders and downed logs, and through changing current seams. With a flat bottom and less of the hull on the water, the kayak can quickly pivot to change direction. A wider hull (about 31 to 35 inches) increases stability in fast turns. While such stability is beneficial in rivers, it reduces speed and increases weight.
Big fish and 400-pound leaders? Use heavily padded gloves that allow you to apply the proper amount of pressure needed to turn and lift a big fish, Perry says. Wiring sailfish on a light leader? Scale down the gloves so you can “feel” your quarry, react to its surges and avoid break-offs.
Try trolling. Nothing could be easier on a lazy fishing day than trolling behind your boat with a spoon, plug or spinner lure. It’s also extremely effective, mimicking the behavior of a traveling bait fish, minding its own business and covering a great amount of ground.
A fish hook or fishhook is a device for catching fish either by impaling them in the mouth or, more rarely, by snagging the body of the fish. Fish hooks have been employed for centuries by fishermen to catch fresh and saltwater fish. In 2005, the fish hook was chosen by Forbes as one of the top twenty tools in the history of man. Fish hooks are normally attached to some form of line or lure which connects the caught fish to the fisherman. There is an enormous variety of fish hooks in the world of fishing. Sizes, designs, shapes, and materials are all variable depending on the intended purpose of the fish hook. Fish hooks are manufactured for a range of purposes from general fishing to extremely limited and specialized applications. Fish hooks are designed to hold various types of artificial, processed, dead or live baits (bait fishing); to act as the foundation for artificial representations of fish prey (fly fishing); or to be attached to or integrated into other devices that represent fish prey (lure fishing).
Jon got involved in the sport in the late 90s. He’s been involved in many facets of the sport; retail sales, outfitting, product development, guiding, author and lecturer. He has fished from over 75 different kayak models from Alaska to Baja to the Caribbean up to New England in both fresh and salt waters for 100 species of fish. He uses all methods (spin, conventional and fly tackle).
Make sure to vary your lure retrieve until you figure out what the fish are responding to that day. Sometimes they want a steady retrieve, but fish often respond well to some erratic twitches and pauses. Many times a fish will follow a lure but not bite. That extra twitch or pause can cause the following fish to react by striking.

More fish are lost to loose lines than anything else. A loose line provides an opportunity for your fish to “throw the hook” right out of its mouth. By keeping tension on the line you will ensure that the hook remains in the mouth of the fish.
The line and the lure are the easy parts. But the know-how? That’s where things get a bit tricky. Without live bait, the only way to attract a fish is by precise movements, scents, and sounds. The intricate dance that ensues is about much more than sitting and waiting. It’s a detailed and subtle hunt that requires patience and precision.

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.

Seek out a particular trophy or eating fish. Want to catch alligator gar but you live in New York? It’s going to be tough going if you’re casting into the East River.
