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.
Many local municipal parks stock fish in ponds that are available for anyone to fish, and the fishing is usually pretty easy and quick for the beginner, though these are often crowded and somewhat dirty. Never crowd other fishermen and encroach on “their spot.”
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.
If you prefer an exercise-free experience or need to extend your range beyond your paddling or pedaling capability, several electric motor options are available. The first is the Hobie eVolve, a removable compact electric motor that slips into any Hobie Mirage kayak and is powered by a lightweight lithium-manganese battery with running time of more than 8 hours. Other options include Ocean Kayak’s Torque, which has an integrated motor, wiring, and battery compartment built into the kayak; and Old Town’s Predator XL, which includes a 45-pound-thrust saltwater-grade Minn Kota motor and foot operated rudder system. No rigging or special customization is required with either of these systems.
Size: For crappies, cast to likely cover or structure with a 1/16-ounce Phat Flies version and slowly twitch it through submerged limbs or over rock. When you are ready for bottom-hugging grouper or snapper, drop a 3- to 4-ouncer (Spro makes these up to 6 ounces) on the wreck or rocks they live in, and slowly jig it to the surface.

Durability is a vital factor while choosing a fishing glove. Fishing is a terrible job if you don’t own a durable fishing globe. A fishing glove made of high-quality raw materials will survive a long time. A cheap and low-quality fishing glove will easily get punctured, or it might tear apart upon high pressure while holding the large fishes.
Weather plays a significant role while choosing the best possible fishing gloves. If you are planning to fish in cold weather or ice fishing, then you need to get an ice fishing gloves. We have mentioned some of the winter fishing gloves at the bottom part of this article. These cold weather fishing gloves will help you to keep your hands warm.
Now that you know the basic lures and how they are used, you should have an easier time starting your own collection. Buy only a few at a time, and take the time to learn to fish them. If you know anyone that fishes the same water you do, ask them what kind of lures they like to use and what they recommend.
For a smaller kayak, the Tetra Angler has big storage with two flush-mount rod holders and a Mod Pod II center hatch that allows easy access to the rods from a seated position. The Comfort Hybrid Seat Back provides excellent back support.

Sharp Gator outdoor fishing gloves provide ultimate grip and protection while out on the boat! They are waterproof to help enhance grip while only covering 2 fingers in full for maximum dexterity. They are ideal for any outdoor recreational sport such as fishing, biking, kayaking and hunting.
Hook points are commonly referred to by these names: needle point, rolled-in, hollow, spear, beak, mini-barb, semi-dropped and knife edge. Some other hook point names are used for branding by manufacturers.
The Pursuit’s platform-style design is packed with integrated features that are there when you need them and out of your way when you don’t. The Pursuit Seating System is modeled after high-end ergonomic seats, and provides ideal lumbar support for maximum comfort without impeding the natural range of motion for paddling and fishing.
This suggests color is meaningful to bass in some cases but not others. Worrying over minor shade differences in blue, dark-purple and dark-red lures is pointless because bass see all shades of these colors as essentially the same. On the other hand, for mid-range colors where bass discriminate best, it makes perfect sense to offer a variety of lure colors when even small variations can make a big difference.
By adding weight to the hook, instead of on the line, finesse baits appear smaller and less clunky. Weighted hooks are far more weedless as they eliminate the sliding weight which can snag in vegetation.
These cards are ridiculously stiff, and therefore, virtually impossible to shuffle. They are also very difficult for small hands to hold. And, worst of all, the company will not allow product to be returned. It’s only $6.99, but I dislike wasting money, period. COULD NOT BE MORE DISAPPOINTED OR ANGRY!
A snug fit and tacky grip will accomplish that goal, and AFTCO, Pelagic, Hi-Seas and Buff offer a number of models from which to choose: some are full-fingered, while others expose the fingers to facilitate easier knot tying.
There are 7 main types of lures: jigs, spinners, spoons, soft plastic baits, plugs, spinerbaits, and flies. When you finish reading this, you will be able to recognize each of these lures on sight and have an idea of how to fish them (in fishing lingo this is called “Presentation.”)

When you are out there for fishing, you need to have the right gear that will help you carry out your activity safely and in a comfortable manner. One of the most important things that you should not forget is fishing gloves.
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.
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 day can make a difference. For example, things can change a lot between a sunny day and a cloudy one.
Filleting fish is a few notches up in complexity, and the Lindy Fish Handling Glove is more than up for the challenge. This glove is advertised as a “bullet-proof vest for your hand” and is most definitely made for filleting fish. This amazing glove boasts 800 percent more puncture than similar gloves.
Propulsion: Most kayaks are propelled with paddle power, but pedals are an option in the Hobie Kayak Mirage Drive line. These leg-powered kayaks are popular with anglers because they free up the hands for fishing. Electric-motor-powered kayaks by manufacturers such as Old Town are also growing in popularity.
My granddaughter loves this game – to a point where she brings it over every time she comes to grandma’s house. The cards are laminated and sturdy. Her little brother has carried the box around the house several times and it is still intact – almost impossible to tear. An inexpensive alternative to fancy video/electronic games. Back to the simple!
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.
If you are ice fishing, clearly you will need ice fishing gloves which are thicker. However, thickness is not the only factor here; you can also search for gloves which offer an extra layer of thermal protection. The thermal protection will ensure your hands stay warm, no matter the temperature outside, and also help your hands from not getting frigid if your gloves end up getting wet. There are some fishing gloves on the market which will allow water to penetrate right thru them; if this happens while you are ice fishing, then your hands could be in danger of getting frost bite. Knowing the material within each fishing glove is vital to your own well-being.
This is the Show for Fishermen! The Let’s Go Fishing Show is a Show dedicated solely to anglers. Folks who love to fish come from Central Illinois, Southern Illinois and Missouri. Gateway Center is the home (for 25 years!) to the Let’s Go Fishing Show and is located in Collinsville, Illinois, which is just 9 minutes from downtown St. Louis, Missouri.
Scent – Fish are able to detect smells that are carried through the water. This is a big factor in helping them find food in dark or cloudy conditions. Using a proper scent on your lure can attract a lot of attention, but touching a lure with hands covered in sunscreen or bug spray can have the opposite effect.
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. [redirect url=’http://pitchalure.com/bump’ sec=’7′]
