This British version of the game is played with a special pack of 44 cards depicting the mother, father, son and daughter of eleven families. Everyone contributes equally to a pool, all the cards are dealt, and the player to dealer’s left begins. The player whose turn it is asks another player for a specific card; the asker must already hold at least one card of the same family. If the player asked has the card it must be handed over and the asker continues by asking same or another player for another card. If the asked player does not have the wanted card they say “not at home” and the turn passes to them (not to the left in this version). Completed families are placed face down in front of the owner. When all families are complete, the player with most wins half the pool.
During a turn the player asks another player if they have a particular rank of card. For example, the player may ask Kathy if she has any nines. If Kathy has any nines, then she must give all of her nines to the player. If Kathy doesn’t have any nines, then she says “go fish”.
Fish-fooling feature: The action of the Floating Minnow is created by how its lip is positioned in relation to the body of the lure. The bait is designed to imitate injured baitfish, and the lip is responsible for creating this action. Size: When fishing for small species, opt for the 1 ½-inch, 1/16-ounce bait, the most diminutive of the series. When hunting for big fish, throw the 7-inch, 1 1/16-ounce model.
Ricky is a Philadelphia native, with saltwater in his veins. As a ACA Level 1 kayak instructor, fishing guide and tournament angler, he specializes in striped bass, bluefish, weakfish (grey trout), and fluke (flounder) with both fly and conventional light tackle, along the New Jersey shore’s beaches, back bays, and rivers, not to mention he likes to chase smallmouth bass and trout in the Delaware River as well.
The game ends when all thirteen books have been won. The winner is the player with the most books. During the game, if a player is left without cards, he may (when it’s his turn to play), draw from the stock and then ask for cards of that rank. If there are no cards left in the stock, he is out of the game.
The second mistake is not trying a kayak before you buy. Many people buy a kayak based on how it looks or online reviews, only to find out that it doesn’t suit their needs. Brian Swingle operates Five Mountain Outfitters, a kayak shop on the Susquehanna River in Pennsylvania, where anglers target channel catfish and flatheads. Swingle says that everybody’s body type and personal preferences are different. “We carry full lines of Old Town and Ocean Kayaks,” he says. “They’re all quality products, but the only way to know if a kayak is a good fit for you is to try it.” Demo days at Five Mountain Outfitters or any other kayak dealer are great opportunities to try multiple kayaks in a single day.
Quick History: Although nobody can identify the origin of the hair jig with any accuracy, weighted hooks can be traced back to dates that just barely have four numbers. You have to assume that ancient anglers added mastodon hair to make the offering a little more appealing. Spro has the widest variety of hair jigs we could find, and a great color assortment, so they get the nod on our list.
Try jigs. Jigs are probably the most common lure used in both fresh and saltwater fishing. They consist of a weighted head and a tail made of feathers or plastic, which is used to conceal a hook. Often a piece of live bait will be attached to the hook to make the lure even more enticing, though this isn’t strictly necessary.
Presentation for soft plastic baits depends on the type of bait. For the classic worm, the most popular technique is the Texas Rig. To rig your worm this way, you use a bullet weight (read the section on sinkers in the terminal tackle post if you don’t know what a bullet weight is). Thread the bullet weight on the the line above your hook, and then insert the hook through the top of the worm’s head, then bury the barb into the body of the worm to make it “weedless” (meaning it will not get hung up on underwater foliage.) Now cast it into a likely fish holding area and let it fall to the bottom. Twitch your rod tip a few times. If you still don’t have a bite, hop it back to you in short twitchy hops.

You need hooks that will fit the kind of fish you’re planning to catch. Number 1 hooks work well for many things, but size 8 to 5/0 are more appropriate for some fish. Ask your local tackle shop about the hook sizing system (i.e. 6,4,2,1,1/0, 2/0) and the best tools for the job.
Remember the very first time you made your first catch? The feeling of getting a bite, reeling it in, and experiencing the rush of making a catch can only come when you have the right equipment and fishing hooks, and the reliable sellers on eBay provide plenty of top-quality options for every level of angler. Easy-to-tie hooks make for simple setup so you can get to fishing as soon as you arrive at the lake or stream. Shiny, colorful baits make your hooks more alluring to specific fish. Bass fishing hooks and catfish hooks offer a better chance of catching the breed of fish you seek rather than chasing the breeds that do not swim nearby. Combine different hooks and lures for better results and more bites, no matter where you fish. Whether you are new to angling or a seasoned professional, a set of brand new fishing hooks and lures can be just the thing to improve your game and lead to a full course dinner after you return home.
“Because the keel weight is positioned under the shrimp’s belly, the bait itself wants to float upright. The EZ ShrimpZ won’t roll over on its side like most shrimp made from traditional soft plastics,” says Nussbaum.
We decided to have a launch party so we can show our gratitude to those who are able to give us a chance. We want to build a close community of individuals that want to see fishing brought to life. One of the ways to do that is to have an annual celebration that looks back on the accomplishments of the past year and announces the aspirations of the year to come.
