Anglers looking for a hands-free option favor Hobie’s Mirage series that range from the light and nimble 9-foot 7-inch Mirage Sport that weighs less than 55 pounds and is ideal for small rivers, lakes, and ponds, up to the 17-foot Pro Angler Tandem (designed for two anglers) or the Pro Angler 14. The Mirage series uses a removable drive system that consists of a pair of underwater fins linked to pedals.
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.
Artificial bait or fishing lures have been used to catch fish for thousands of years. Made from a wide variety of materials, colors, sizes, and styles, lures are used to attract fish and convince them to bite into the attached hook. If you want to fish with lures, you need to know the most common lure techniques and how you can use them to catch a fish.
In-line spinner and tail-spinner baits, which are the most popular types of spinnerbaits, are perfect for fishing trout, bass, salmon, northern pike, walleye and other big or small fishes. Perfect for…

Versatile: I tip jigs with virtually anything, from plastic twister tail grub bodies, to hair and feathers. Since I hunt, I have a lifetime supply of deer, elk and squirrel tails, and the feathers from a variety of game birds. Depending on the species of fish and circumstances, I can make just about any type of jig necessary. Part of the fun of fishing is catching something on a homemade lure!
This online version of Go Fish was made by me. My name is Einar Egilsson and over there on the left is my current Facebook profile picture! This is the 8th card game I make, the other ones being Whist, Spades, Hearts, Solitaire, Idiot, Shithead and Crazy Eights. Go Fish might seem like a weird game to have a computer version of, but there were three reasons I wanted to make it:
AFTCO – There are a few different fishing gloves within the AFTCO brand, all of which offer you a solution for your needs. Mostly found in a royal or navy blue color, their gloves are fitted for your hands, and come with a Velcro strap to help ensure these gloves stay on your hands during each fishing trip. They have both full finger fishing gloves, as well as fingerless gloves, and are made out of a variety of different materials. The heavier the glove, the more protection you are offered, but also the more expensive each glove is. These gloves are excellent for saltwater fishing, and provide you with solid grip so you can grab any fish within the sea.
Spoons are curved metal lures. The first spoons were just that, spoons with the handle broken off. Today, spoons can be had (like all other lures) in any color and size. There is a spoon for every fishing situation. The shape of this lure gives it its distinctive action. Spoons move through water with a side-to-side wobble that simulates an injured baitfish, and game fish just love injured baitfish.

Made of multi-layer Poly-XR, an exceptionally durable ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene.
Neoprene gloves are most widely used fishermen. Why? Because neoprene offers great insulation, especially in the winter season. While insulation generally comes at a price of weight, neoprene gloves are amazingly lightweight, too.
Handling the fishes are pretty easy with this fishing glove. If you are a professional fisherman, you will know how frustrating it is to handle or release large fishes. The added grip makes it sure to handle and release the fishes more easily.
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.
Wait quietly. Some fishermen will start reeling in very slowly, lightly jerking the bait to give fish the impression that it is alive. Depending on your experience and your bait, you might do this, or you might just sit back and wait. Experiment with different methods until you get a bite. Do not immediately start reeling back in as soon as you’ve cast, however.
Regardless of the rod and reel you choose, you probably shouldn’t use a line any thicker than 6 pound test — just make sure you’re using a good quality line, so it will be strong and flexible. Some believe that the trout actually can see heavier line, but this is simply not the case. Trout eyes have been thoroughly examined under a microscope, and human vision is actually 14 times more acute. And even if they could clearly see your fishing line under water, they’re probably not smart enough to care. Instead it seems that they are most often spooked by the shadow cast by the contact point of the line ENTERING the water. Next time you’re fishing in clear water, take a look. Your line moving around on the surface of the water will cast a BIG shadow on the bottom of the stream. Since sudden movement spook trout, it makes sense that you’re chasing fish away. If you keep your rod tip down so the shadow is at your feet, you’ll do fine.
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 young female intern at a small magazine company becomes involved with a drug-addicted lesbian photographer, both of whom seek to exploit each other for their respective careers, while slowly falling in love with each other.
When kayak fishing in shallow water, an alternative to a traditional anchor is a stake-out pole—a long pole that you can drive into soft bottoms. You can run the pole through your anchor trolley or a scupper hole to hold your position. If you’re fishing an area with a lot of stickups or overhanging trees, a brush hook or similar type clamp can hold your position. Because you may have to detach from your anchor for safety purposes or while fighting a fish, it’s a good idea to have a float attached to your anchor rope so you can easily return to it.
