Built with both the serious and the aspiring offshore angler in mind, the Thresher is efficient and quick, yet stable and predictable to handle ever-changing open water conditions. The deck is laid out for maximum gear storage, capacity, and accessibility.
“We were one of the original makers of the first shrimp imitators on the market,” says Pender. “Top target species for most North Carolina anglers are trout, redfish and flounder, but snook, tarpon and even bonefish will bite them.” Lure configurations, both rigged and unrigged, are available, along with different weight options from 1/4 to 1 ounce.
Always take note of the tackle condition, because when your rod wears out, you will lose the hook line that are equipped with it. You can check your Go Fishing rod condition by looking at the green bar in the tackle section of your backpack. This means that you should not use use expensive hooks and lines when the rod is about to break, because you will lose them in Go Fishing when your rod breaks.
The type and size of lure is generally determined by the fish species that you’re targeting. Although there is no defined role for the various lures, the idea is to match a lure as well as possible with a fish’s natural prey. For example, a bass usually feeds on tiny crayfish, making it less likely to bite a large fish-shaped lure.
Bait tank: There are a few onboard livewell options for kayaks, and most are large, heavy, and expensive. A YouTube search reveals several do-it-yourself plans if you intend to keep live shad. An option for hardier baits is a flow-through bait container like a Frabill Flow Troll Bucket. They create drag but perform much better than stringers for baits like bluegills. To keep cutbait fresh, the best option I’ve found is the soft-side Yeti 12-Pack Hopper. If you vacuum-seal baits in individual bags and your lunch and drinks in another, it’s a good option for even the hottest of days.

The initial player is selected at random. The player can then ask one of the other players for a particular rank. For example, you might ask Bill if he has any sixes. You may only ask for ranks that you already have at least one card of. E.g. if you don’t have any sixes yourself you can’t ask for them. If Bill has any sixes, then he must give them to you, and you get another turn and can ask again. If Bill doesn’t have any sixes then he will tell you to “Go Fish” which means that you will draw one card from the pile on the table. If you get a six, then you show it to the other players and get to play again. If you get anything else you are finished with your turn and the player next to you plays.
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.
Rod Holders: Several rod holders are made specifically for kayaks such as Scotty and Ram brands. “How many rod holders you add to your kayak and where you place them is up to you,” Johnston says. “I have four rod holders mounted on my kayak and I adjust their positions based on the type of fishing I’m doing. Also make sure the butt ends of your rods fit into the holders and can be easily removed.” Kayaks like the Old Town Predator XL have pre-installed mounting plates on the hull to install Yak Attack GearTracs, which allow convenient mounting and removal of rod holders and other accessories anywhere along the gunnel.

This Thai game, whose name means “room card”, is essentially the same as Happy Families. It is played by 3 to 6 players using a standard 52-card pack. All the cards are dealt out as evenly as possible, and the aim is to collect fours of a kind. The player next to the dealer who received the first card in the deal begins. At your turn you ask another player for a specific card by rank and suit (e.g. 6 of diamonds): in order to ask for a card you must have a card of that rank in your hand. If the player you asked has the requested card you receive it and your turn continues. If not, the turn passes to the player you asked. A set of four equal cards is called a room (hông): a player who collects one of these can store the cards face down or keep them in hand. The game ends when all 13 rooms have been collected, and the player with most rooms wins.
Most gloves designed for fishing in cold weather come with a pattern on the fingers and palms to help provide you with a secure grip. You want the gloves to be able to provide you with a good grip so you don’t have to worry about dropping a lure in the water or your rod slipping out of your hands when there is a fish on the line. The grip pattern can vary and one is not necessarily better than the others. In most cases it is a matter of personal opinion and finding the one that works best for you.
Fish-fooling feature: The action of the Floating Minnow is created by how its lip is positioned in relation to the body of the lure. The bait is designed to imitate injured baitfish, and the lip is responsible for creating this action. Size: When fishing for small species, opt for the 1 ½-inch, 1/16-ounce bait, the most diminutive of the series. When hunting for big fish, throw the 7-inch, 1 1/16-ounce model.
