Light spring wire appendages mounted to the hook’s eye grabs the soft plastic independently of the hook itself. The spring wire keeps the bait secure and off the shank of the hook for better hook sets.
To tie your fishing hook onto your fishing line, thread the line through your hook, then loop the line back towards you and wrap it around itself 5 times. Complete the knot by feeding the end of the line back through the loop you made and pulling it tight. Before you can cast your line, bait your hook by running the tip of the hook through the bait at least 3 times so that it’s secure. When you’re ready to cast your line, hold the rod out to your side, then sweep it forward like you’re skipping a stone as you release the line.

Construction: Although all jigs seem similar, the shape of the lead head is of the utmost importance. A football shape works best in rocky areas. Bullet heads punch through grass. Jigs with line-ties on the top of the head are best for swimming.
Picture it: you’re a dad and you like to fish. You happen to have a child who also likes to fish, or you are just out with the guys on the lake having a good time. This is the making of a beautiful outing in the tradition of a cherished pastime. Yet, fishing can get boring and ineffective with lifeless bait. It also doesn’t help that you have to keep moving the rod all the time to give the bait the appearance of movement. But why settle for an illusion when you can have the real thing?
Recreation: Having a bad day of fishing still beats a day in the office or tending to house chores. The most common reason you will find with people who like to fish is that it is simply fun, whether you enjoy trolling for stripers or outwitting a weary brook trout with a hand-tied fly that imitates an insect the size of a pin head.
Engineered above and below the waterline to be the perfect fishing platform, the Predator Family from Old Town has what it takes to target everything from small-pond largemouths to rough-seas stripers.

Fishing technique for a jig can depend on the circumstances. The most effective method, IMHO, is to cast the lure out, and bounce it off the bottom. You will lose a lot of jigs like this, but if you aren’t hitting snags or rocks, you aren’t prospecting where the fish are.
Similarly, Rich Hohne, marketing manager at Simms Fishing Products, says that the company’s SunGloves have taken off in popularity in South Florida, primarily among inshore anglers who are as concerned about sun damage as anything.
Many other factors relate to how well a fish sees a lure or lure color—so many, we can’t discuss all of them here. Time of day, wind velocity, types of dissolved particles in the water, sky color, season—all these and more affect one’s ability to catch fish on a certain lure color.
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.
No matter your budget, body size, or targeted waters, there’s a modern fishing kayak to suit your needs. To test various models, I recommend taking part in “demo day” offered by dealers. It’s a great way to try out a kayak and learn how these innovative vessels open up a whole new realm of fishing opportunities.
Releasing the line depends somewhat on the type of reel you’re using, but if you’ve got a closed push-button spinner reel, the job is fairly straight forward. Pushing the button releases the line and letting go stops it. When you cock the rod back, push the button, and when you point it, release it.

For me one of the worst things about fishing with gloves is losing dexterity. If you are like me and looking for a glove that is tight-fitting. A glove that will keep your hands warm, but also give you control and feeling of your reel, rod and lures I would recommend the Icearmor Dryskinz Gloves.
Try trolling. Nothing could be easier on a lazy fishing day than trolling behind your boat with a spoon, plug or spinner lure. It’s also extremely effective, mimicking the behavior of a traveling bait fish, minding its own business and covering a great amount of ground.
The best type of material for a fishing glove is a Superfabric material, which has interwoven material to ensure that it is up to 800% more resistant to punctures than your normal, run of the mill fishing gloves. Not only is the material stronger, but most gloves for fishing that have this material have it doubled up, meaning that there isn’t just one layer of protection, but two. That means a glove which is made out of this material can not only protect you from the normal things on a fish, but can also help protect you from an accidental slice of a knife, or a hook, or anything else which could slice you, the money is well worth it.
Short strikes are the bane of many fishermen. Trailer hooks increase hook-ups when attached to standard hooks. Typically a soft rubber tube is placed over the trailer hook’s eye. The rubber keeps the hook in place and always upright, ready to strike.

Method #3: rig the worm as in method #2, above. Cast into a deep pool with a slow current. Again reel the worm in slowly. Keep your rod tip up and try to keep an eye on the worm. Every couple of seconds, give the worm a few twitches with the rod tip. If you can see the worm as you reel it in, you’ll begin to grasp how alive these things can look with just a little twitch here and there. Experiment with the action to achieve the “swimmiest” look you can. Here’s the kicker on this one. This retrieve will get every fish’s attention in the stream. At some point, a fish will grab the worm and try to run away with it hanging from the corner of his mouth. Instantaneously, every other fish in the river will want that worm. So, if you attempt to set the hook and instead pull the worm out of the fish’s mouth, let the worm sit right there without a move for a couple of seconds. Very often, another fish will viciously attack it. Very exciting.
Item Number: 8832. Type: Catfish Hook. 180pcs/box Catfish Hook Set. Many fish will swallow bait, resulting in gut hooking with conventional live bait hooks. Circle hooks act differently. When an angler detects a bite, a slow steady pull of the line is all that’s needed to move the hook to the side or top of the fish’s mouth to prevent gut hooking.
This game is sometimes played with special cards, and sometimes with a 54-card pack including two jokers, which act as normal cards forming a pair. Jonny Groves describes a similar game played in the USA, and suggests that a pair of jokers should be scored as 2 points rather than 1 since it is harder to make than other pairs. For similar reasons, collecting two pairs of the same rank should score 3 points rather than 2.

The Indonesian version of Go Fish is known as Omben in Javanese or Minuman in Indonesian, both names meaning “drink”. It is said to be best for two players, each of whom begins with a hand of 4 or 5 cards (according to agreement) drawn from a 52 card pack. The players take turns to ask their opponent for a rank, such as 8 or king, and the opponent must give the asker all cards of that rank that he or she holds. If the opponent has no such card the asker must “drink” by drawing cards from the pile of undealt cards: the asker continues to draw until he or she finds a card of the rank that was asked for. Whenever a player has four of a kind in hand, it must be discarded face up. The winner is the first player to get rid of all their cards – it does not matter how many or few sets they have made. If the stock runs out, the player with fewer cards is the winner. Note that in this game the players ask alternately, irrespective of whether the card asked for is found in the other player’s hand or the draw pile.
