Contemporary kayaks can be equipped with after-market fishing accessories such as anchor trolleys, rod holders, electronic fish-finders and live-bait containers. Kayak anglers target highly prized gamefish like snook, red drum, seatrout, tarpon, halibut and cod and also pelagics like amberjacks, tuna, sailfish, wahoo, king mackerel, and even marlin.
Five cards are dealt from a standard 52-card deck to each player, or seven cards if there are four or fewer players. The remaining cards are shared between the players, usually spread out in a disorderly pile referred to as the “ocean” or “pool”.

Talking about metallic lures, if the weather is going to be sunny and the water conditions are fairly clear, than a silver fishing lure is a good idea. The goal is to choose a fishing lure that stands out and attracts attention. The combination of reflection from the sun and clear water allows silver lures to flash in the water, making them visible from quite a distance. However, if the day is overcast or mostly cloudy, or if the water is darker and cloudy, then a gold fishing lure is the best bet. Gold has superior reflective abilities and can still be quite visible even in darker conditions.
AFTCO actually consulted Perry when designing its Bluefever Wiremax gloves, which are made with closed-cell EVA foam and Kevlar coating to offer protection against the biggest fish. The company’s Release gloves have less padding and are “more of a tactile glove for wiring sailfish, striped and white marlin,” says Stotesbury.
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.
The Move Angler is the perfect kayak for kids and smaller paddlers getting into the sport of kayak fishing. The Move Angler comes equipped with molded-in handles, recessed fittings, and the Wheel in the Keel. Its “tri-hull” design offers great stability and efficient tracking while paddling. Its hull weighs only 42 pounds, making it very easy for any solo paddler to maneuver the kayak on or off the water — even a younger paddler.
Are the fish telling you anything? Sometimes you must experiment and let the fish tell you what they want. Switch colors periodically without changing any other variables, and pay attention to details when fish hit. If you can fish with multiple poles or multiple lures, start with a mix of colors and see if fish show a preference. Often a single rod gets all the action until you switch all lures to the “color of the day.”
Not long ago, kayaks floated far from the mainstream fishing scene. But today they’re the fastest growing segment in angling vessels. Many manufacturers have become involved. Here’s a look at the allure of kayak fishing and how to get started.
Vibration – Fish can feel movement. They have a special system of lines that run the length of their bodies which allow them to sense minute changes in water pressure. This can be a great advantage for the experienced lure fisherman hoping to attract a fish. An uninformed angler will only succeed in giving away his position.
Players try to form sets of four-of-a-kind. When they do, the four cards are immediately placed on the table face up. Play continues until all books have been made. The player who makes the most books wins.
Today, we’re able to utilize more sources for recycled polyester and offer it on more garments such as Capilene® baselayers, shell jackets, board shorts, and fleece. We now recycle used soda bottles, unusable manufacturing waste, and worn out garments (including our own) into polyester fibers to produce many of our clothes.
For Gene, kayak fishing is more than just fishing. It’s a passion he has to be on the water seeking the rewards that only he can find for himself. He believes that certainly someone can tell you where the fish are, but it’s up to you to get them in, and that is a feeling of accomplishment.
The option of having full fingered gloves is the fact that you know all of your fingers will be protected from both the sun, as well as other items which could cut your fingers, including teeth, gills, scales and other errant hooks. Once again, it all depends upon what kind of fish you typically fish for, and knowing what the chances are that you will be cut from a fish. Due to the fact that you only need fishing gloves if you are fishing for larger fish, there is more of a chance that you will get cut from this kind of fish, as there is more body to hold, and more of a wiggling factor.
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.
In the final analysis, there can be no overall in the bait-versus-lures contest. Each approach has its strengths and weaknesses, and each will dominate under certain conditions or on a particular day. Smart (and successful) anglers will strive to be adept at both forms of fishing!
There’s more to getting on a boat than just having fun. It’s also about health, interacting with others, and using all our senses to experience nature and all it can bring to us. Read about our mission.
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.
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.
“Just then, it bolted under the boat,” recalls the younger Stotesbury. “The leader tightened around his index and ring finger, and cut them clean off. It happened so fast, he didn’t have time to react … and those old gloves just weren’t up to the task.”
Books are saved by each player, face down. When the main play is finished, a further stage of play starts, with the player who has most books. That player may ask another player for a rank that they remember that player has; if correct they win the whole book; if incorrect, play passes to the other player. The winner is the player who has eventually collected a book of every rank. [redirect url=’http://pitchalure.com/bump’ sec=’7′]
