Jig fishing takes a lot of concentration, unlike spinners, all the “action” (how a lure moves in the water) comes from you. If you don’t do anything the jig just sinks. The classic way to fish a jig is to cast it out, wait until it hits the (you will know it has hit bottom when your line goes slack), then retrieve it in a series of hops. You make it hop by lifting the rod tip, lowering it, and retrieving your line. Try different speeds, big lifts, little hops, twitching until you find what works. Pay attention, though. Detecting the strike is the hardest thing about jigging.
STYLE: L224BP. These hooks work great for freshwater fishing as well as saltwater using most types of bait. They have great strength for their size and hold their sharpness. I use these hooks when fishing for Trout, Bluegill, panfish and Perch.
As a general rule, you should use brighter baits on sunny days, and darker baits when the sky is cloudy or overcast. Water clarity and depth are also determining factors in your choice of lures. When fishing in clear deep lakes light penetrates much deeper and all colors are more visible than in stained or muddy water. Red shades are the first to become invisible to fish, with blues and greens showing up much better as water depth increases. A notable exception to this rule is the use of 2-toned soft plastic lures that feature a darker head color and a fluorescent white, pink or yellow tail color. Many anglers use soft plastic lures colored like this when fishing in cloudy weather.
We’re talking about bass in this example, and other fish species may or may not be similar when it comes to color detection. There are some factors, however, that come into play regardless of the species you’re targeting. For example, lure depth should be considered when selecting colors because as light penetrates water, different wavelengths in the color spectrum begin disappearing. Subtle variations in lure color may be important when fishing on or near the water’s surface, but colors become increasingly less relevant in deeper waters where they are filtered out. Moreover, in muddy water, it’s pointless to fret over the exact shade of blue or green because reds, oranges and yellows are about the only colors of light available.
All modern reels have an adjustable drag but nylon lines drag can be adjusted by pulling with the hand. If you feel the nylon stretching, the drag should begin to work. Even very big fish get tired when pulling against a constant line pressure. Try to use the rod to steer the fish to open water.
A: No. Although fish are a delicious and nutritious source of protein found in Indiana, native fish that are caught can be released back into the water. Special handling techniques taught in the Go FishIN program help reduce fish injuries. If the caught fish is an aquatic invasive species (AIS), it must not be returned to the water. For more information, please read Indiana DNR’s AIS Information.

Seek out a particular trophy or eating fish. Want to catch alligator gar but you live in New York? It’s going to be tough going if you’re casting into the East River. If you want to be ambitious and plan a fishing trip to net a particular variety of fish, you’ll have to make a trip to the region and the particular type of water that fish inhabits.
Glacier Glove 811BK-XL. The Bristol Bay Slit Finger Glove is a Fishing Glove designed to keep your hands warm and dry while giving the dexterity needed for fishing. THE NO.1 SOURCE FOR ALL YOUR FISHING NEEDS.
Try changing things up a bit by altering your retrieve. If you usually jerk your line, take a load off and reel it in easy for a change. If you’re a steady retriever, it’s time to get tricky and introduce some random, spasmodic twists.
The gloves are breathable so you won’t build up too much sweat while you’re wearing them. Consider the type of fishing you want to do before you purchase any gloves. It can mean the difference between keeping or losing your fingers.
A bid of no-trump is best when you have 15 high-card points, and your hand’s distribution is balanced, meaning a 4-3-3-3, 4-4-3-2, or 5-3-3-2 combination. You should also have all suits stopped, meaning you have the A, the K-Q, the Q-J-10, and/or the J-10-9-8 in each suit. These card combinations will prevent your opponents from taking a run of tricks in one suit. Most of the time, however, you’ll have to make do with “probable” stoppers, such as K-x, Q-J- x, Q-10-x, or even Q-x-x. [redirect url=’http://pitchalure.com/bump’ sec=’7′]
