Keep a finger on the line: You will be able to feel a “strike” or a “hit” easily this way without staring at the bobber. It, also, may have the appearance of receiving a strike, but it may just be the water that is causing it to bob up and down, remember that the bobber follows the movements of the fish. If it quietly swims away against the current it is a strike.
Bait your hook. While it depends on the kind of bait you’re using, in general, you’ll want to work the hook through your bait as many times as possible to keep it securely on the hook. Holding the hook securely in one hand, start 1/3 of the way from the bottom of the bait, and push it straight through. Bend the bait back toward the hook and pierce the bait again about halfway. At least two or three secured piercings should be fine.

To achieve the proper effect, cast and allow the jig the sink for a few moments. Then retrieve the jig at a slow rate while simultaneously and rapidly twitching your rod tip up and down. Rapid twitching means RAPID twitching. Your rod hand should bounce down perhaps 4x per second while your retrieve hand is making no more than one revolution per second. counting “one-one-thou-sand, two-one-thou-sand…” and so on to establish the rhythm of your cranking while bouncing your rod hand on each syllable. It takes a little practice to get the feel of it.

In 1993, we adopted fleece into our product line made from post consumer recycled (PCR) plastic soda bottles. We were the first outdoor clothing manufacturer to do so. PCR® clothing was a positive step towards a more sustainable system – one that uses fewer resources, discards less and better protects people’s health.
Quick History: This topwater bait was developed in 1939 (although it has a wooden forefather called the Zarragossa). Its side-to-side action inspired the phrase “walk the dog,” which is how most describe the technique of twitching it across the water. Thousands of lures are now built to imitate this action.
Point: This is the business end of the hook. In recent years manufacturers have been in a race to develop the “newest and best” point. Whether chisel, trocar, needle, knife edge or rolled–they must be sharp to land the big ones.
These gloves are 100% waterproof and best of all they are form-fitting. This means they fit tight to your hand helping the loss of dexterity that many fishermen complain about when fishing with gloves.
Fishing jigs have weighted metal heads and a tail made of animal hair, soft plastic, feathers or rubber. Anglers sometimes add a minnow or piece of pork rind to the fishing jig’s hook. Fishing jigs can be used to catch nearly every kind of freshwater and many saltwater fish. Learn more about the best jigs for catching Bass. Content courtesy of Fix.com
Fishing lures come in many shapes, colors and styles. There are crankbaits, spinnerbaits, umbrella rigs, topwater frogs and rats and who-knows-what, jerkbaits, jigs, buzzbaits and a whole lot more. Lures are designed for specific techniques, and to be fished a certain way. In some cases fish can’t get enough of a certain lure at one time of year, then won’t look at it at other times. Key to fishing with lures is experience and an open mind. Learn what your fish want to eat, then match it with your lures, but always be ready to learn a new technique or try a different tactic.
While a real shrimp — dead or alive — might be the preferred morsel for most oceanic creatures, today’s shrimp imitators raise the bar so high that I’m compelled to go artificial. Sure, some tough bites require a lively crustacean flowing with the current in crystal-clear waters, but for the majority of target species, anglers can easily learn to work a well-designed artificial shrimp fishing lure to draw strikes.

Color – Fish can see color. Using a variety of colors to attract fish is a great way to test and hone your angling game. Remember to consider the depth and clarity of the water you’re in. Even the flashiest lures won’t do much good in deep or murky water.

Supports Wildlife and Fisheries Management: Angling is an important wildlife management tool. For more than 100 years anglers have helped to contribute to wildlife and fisheries management efforts by helping to set seasons and creel limits. Wildlife populations of most fish species remain stable and in some cases flourish, a far cry from a decade ago when many species suffered from over harvest and the ill effects of pollution. Anglers also have a vested interest in and support many efforts to preserve and protect all species and the environment-all the while helping to increase biodiversity.
Quick History: Although grubs have been around for a very long time, it wasn’t until Mr. Twister added the animated tail in the early 1970s that the bait gained crazy popularity. Soon, millions of Curly Tail Grubs were being sold and many manufacturers embraced the design. The effectiveness of this bait likely rests on its simplicity. It has a baitfish profile that, depending on the size you choose, could mimic forage ranging from shad fry to full-grown mullet. When matched to the proper-size jighead, it can be fished effectively for virtually all species in a variety of water conditions, from fast-moving rivers to small ponds.
Several factors come into play when entering the realm of kayaks, beginning with your budget and storage. Kayaks retail from $300 to more than $3,000, but used ones can be had for considerably less. As with most purchases, if you’re committed to the activity, it pays to spend a little more and get a better product. If your interests shift or you intend to use the kayak sparingly, one in the lower range may be more appropriate.
The Go Fishing treasure chest is heavy. Sometimes you can pull it out with the common rod and some extra energy with overpower ability. However, most of the time you need an advanced rod to pull the chest. [redirect url=’http://pitchalure.com/bump’ sec=’7′]
