Beginner anglers might imagine that a hook is a hook. But the pros know that’s not quite true – there are many styles to choose from and gaining experience will help define which is best for your needs. Treble hooks are a great choice when using artificial lures, but also deliver solid performance with cut bait. If quick and easy baiting is a priority, straight hooks are ideal. Taking on a species known for putting up a powerful fight? Offset hooks sink in and hold tight to ensure your catch doesn’t lose the hook before bringing it in.
If you’re like me, the lures in your tackle boxes exhibit a kaleidoscope of colors. Some of my boxes contain only one lure type—spoons, for example, or jigs. However, none contain lures in only one or two colors. No matter what artificial I’m casting, I have a rainbow of colors from which to choose, and every angler I know is similarly equipped.
This complete anchoring system for your canoe, inflatable boat or other small watercraft comes in a small, easy-to-store package. The 3-1/3-lb. anchor has four fold-in flukes to get a secure hold on the bottom and is compact enough to pack away in the smallest of storage spaces.
Cast your line, and instead of starting to reel in or troll right away, let your lure sink to the bottom. As soon as your line goes slack, give it a tug to simulate a bounce off the bottom. Repeat this bouncing action as you retrieve. This is a great attention-grabbing technique that doesn’t take long to learn and boosts your chances of a bite.
Always take note of the tackle condition, because when your rod wears out, you will lose the hook and 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 EZ ShrimpZ was created to sink slowly and in a horizontal position, just like a real shrimp settling to the bottom,” says Daniel Nussbaum, president of Z-Man Fishing Products. “We put a lot of effort into balance, posture and sink rate by coupling a properly positioned keel weight with our naturally buoyant ElaZtech material.”

Secluded spots around ponds or levees outside of town are good bets. If you’re wandering in the woods looking for a place to fish privately, make sure you’re not tramping onto someone’s private property, or that you’re fishing in a place that doesn’t allow it.
Spinnerbaits and buzzbaits are awkward looking looking lures, consisting of a safety-pin like wire attached to a lead head body. The body usually is dressed with a rubber skirt and the arm with one or two metallic blades like those seen on spinners.

Wearing loose gloves will occupy most of your time because you’ll be busy adjusting the gloves. Also, loose fitting gloves will be incapable of fulfilling the very reason you bought those gloves. On the other hand, tight gloves will hinder your movement of fingers, creating a problem in handing the fish.
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.
So far as I know, games of this type first appeared in the mid 19th century and were played with special cards. In Britain there was Spade the Gardener, in which players collect families of five cards, later superseded by Happy Families, in which each family consists of four cards (mother, father, son, daughter). In the USA, the game of Dr Busby, also based on families, was first published in 1843, followed by Authors in 1861. I do not know whether these games were based on an earlier game played with standard cards, or whether the adaptation to use a standard pack came later.
The tacky Diamond-Grip has been directly injected onto the nylon mesh palm, which gives you a better grip in the water. The back of the gloves is vented foam mesh to keep your hands cool while you’re wearing them. The neoprene cuff has Velcro closures to keep the gloves attached and keep water out.
Spoons are metal lures designed to mimic the action of a swimming baitfish or minnow. They’re one of the most popular of all fishing lures because they’re easy to use and are versatile. Depending on where and how you’re fishing, you’ll want the right spoon – casting, weedless (or topwater), jigging or trolling spoons. Different spoons have different actions. And there are a variety of colors depending on the type of water and species you’re fishing. Ask your tackle shop which ones you need.

Soft-plastic worms, minnows and crayfish are available in many sizes and colors. You can use them with or without a weight. Sometimes, plastic fishing baits are used with a jig head, spinner or spinner bait. Some plastic baits have a scent built into them that is attractive to fish.

In many ways, fishing with lures is akin to hunting, while bait fishing is more like trapping. In other words, the bait fisher sets out his or her “traps” (baited hooks) and waits for the prey to stumble upon them. In contrast, a lure fisher can cover more water in less time. Like a hunter using a rifle or bow, the lure caster or troller actively seeks out the prey, and his or her lures are effectively bullets and arrows.
Some people play that when the stock runs out, you carry on playing until all the cards have been made into books. Obviously after the stock has run out there is no ‘Go Fish!’. If the person you asked doesn’t have the card asked for, the turn passes on.
There are a lot of fishing lures in a lot of sizes, shapes and colors. As you understand more about the environment fish live in and how they behave, you will learn which fishing bait or lure is best for specific fish during different seasons of the year.
Hook shapes and names are as varied as fish themselves. In some cases hooks are identified by a traditional or historic name, e.g. Aberdeen, Limerick or O’Shaughnessy. In other cases, hooks are merely identified by their general purpose or have included in their name, one or more of their physical characteristics. Some manufacturers just give their hooks model numbers and describe their general purpose and characteristics. For example:
eBay determines trending price through a machine learned model of the product’s sale prices within the last 90 days. “New” refers to a brand-new, unused, unopened, undamaged item, and “Used” refers to an item that has been used previously.
Dry flies are intended to float on the surface of the water, to this end they are dressed with some kind of floatant to aid in their buoyancy. Wet flies, like nymphs and streamers are designed to be fished below the surface of the water. Fly fishing is a difficult but rewarding area of the fishing universe.
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.
If you prefer an exercise-free experience or need to extend your range beyond your paddling or pedaling capability, several electric motor options are available. The first is the Hobie eVolve, a removable compact electric motor that slips into any Hobie Mirage kayak and is powered by a lightweight lithium-manganese battery with running time of more than 8 hours. Other options include Ocean Kayak’s Torque, which has an integrated motor, wiring, and battery compartment built into the kayak; and Old Town’s Predator XL, which includes a 45-pound-thrust saltwater-grade Minn Kota motor and foot operated rudder system. No rigging or special customization is required with either of these systems.
The third mistake is equating a kayak to a poor man’s boat. Often anglers settle for a kayak because they can’t afford the larger boat they want. Boats and kayaks are different fishing platforms. If a larger or different boat is what you want, you most likely won’t be happy in a kayak.
