As nature constantly changes the angling landscape, you have to change with it in order to stay ahead of the curve. Incorporate all of these lure-fishing tips into your technique, and challenge yourself to think of some new ones. Innovation is the key to the next big catch, and the lure-fishing tip that lands it has yet to be discovered!
If you play this variation, you need to agree whether it is permissible to ask for a card which you already hold in your hand. Obviously you’ll have to fish and your turn will end, but you might do this deliberately to mislead the other players into thinking that you didn’t hold that card.
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.
Looking at fishing magazines, books, videos, and TV shows, it’s easy to assume that lure fishing is the dominant style of recreational angling around the world. Certainly, lure fishing receives the lion’s share of media coverage. However, this perception is far from reality. Day in and day out, many more fishers use natural baits than artificial lures. The angling media’s heavy bias toward lure and fly fishing is a clear reflection of the personal preferences of most writers and presenters, not to mention a tacit acknowledgement of the lure and fly fishing’s tendency to generate far more in the way of advertising revenue than “humble” bait fishing.
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.
A variation as I remember it: Players can lay down a 3 of a kind and upon drawing the fourth could close the book. If an opponent held or drew the fourth card, he could lay it down in front of himself to close the book. We also asked for the card of everyone at once. I don’t remember how we scored the 3-card books, but I would imagine the cards were scored at face value. My three 3s gave me 9 and your 3 gave you 3 if it was laid in front of yourself to close my book. 10s and face cards were 10 points and aces were maybe 11. I remember we called the game “Fish,” after the the instruction to “fish” if the requested card was not available to be given.
As they say, attraction is all about confidence. Lures don’t have that delicious wormy taste that fish love, so when they strike, you may only have a second to respond. Don’t second-guess yourself. If you think you have a bite, give a tug and set the hook.

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.
Equally important is the ability to load and haul your kayak. Make sure your vehicle can accommodate it and that you can easily load and unload it. Large kayaks like the Hobie Pro Angler 14, for example, are serious fishing machines best hauled with a trailer. But I can easily load my 12-foot Hobie Outback on top of my Tahoe. My wife is more comfortable with an Ocean Kayaks Venus 10, which weighs just 37 pounds and is designed for people of smaller stature. Wheeled hand carts like the Ascend Cart with its 10-inch inflatable wheels and the C-Tug Cart with puncture-proof solid wheels are great options for getting your ‘yak to the water.
Kayaks can be one of the most enjoyable and efficient ways to catch catfish. Their transportability and mobility to launch and navigate in areas not accessible to traditional fishing boats gives you an edge. Plus, there’s an added level of simplicity and tranquility, and excitement when you’re just inches from the water and battling catfish big enough to take you on a Tennessee sleigh ride.
