While Buff’s Angler and Fighting/Work gloves were designed primarily provide hand protection from zipping fly lines and rough-textured push poles, they also offer a UPF-50 rating, adding extra protection against the sun’s ultraviolet rays.
The type of water you fish is important in choosing a hull design and length of kayak. Are you fishing moving water or still water? In faster currents, a 10- to 12-foot kayak with a flat bottom and an upward curvature (rocker) at the bow and stern is preferred. These attributes make it more nimble and allow you to quickly steer around boulders and downed logs, and through changing current seams. With a flat bottom and less of the hull on the water, the kayak can quickly pivot to change direction. A wider hull (about 31 to 35 inches) increases stability in fast turns. While such stability is beneficial in rivers, it reduces speed and increases weight.
Charlie has fished from the chilly waters off Salem, Massachusetts down to the tepid waters of Chokoloskee, Florida. He has found the community of kayak anglers to be one of the warmest and most open minded group of individuals. Regardless of where he is, he can ask any question and get an honest answer each time.
Don’t overdo it. Fishing is a lot like chess, a game of quiet movements and subtlety, not herky-jerky nonsense. Most beginners jerk the line around too much. It’s important to reel in very slowly, using calm and gentle movements on the line. If you’re not catching anything, slow your movements down and be gentler with your rod.

Cloudy or dark water will call for a larger lure. Even if the fish you’re going for aren’t whoppers, you may need a large lure to get their attention. On the other hand, a large lure won’t be necessary in crystal clear water regardless of fish size. Large fish will still be attracted to small lures in high-visibility conditions. This means that you can use a smaller, more maneuverable lure and actually increase your chances of nailing a fighter.
Pedal kayaks that are on par with pedaling a bike (like the Old Town PDL or Hobie Mirage Drive 180°, which you can pedal in reverse) are well suited for anglers. Otherwise, the optional drop-in 45-pound-thrust Minn Kota trolling motor for my Old Town Predator XL expands my fishing range. It allows me to fish more spots throughout the day, precisely control my drift speed, and gets me off the water quickly when needed.
German Quartett cards are often provided with technical statistics related to the theme of the pack, so that they can also be used to play Top Trumps, which in German is sometimes known as Supertrumpf, and sometimes include a Schwarzer Peter (Black Peter) card so that they can be used for the German equivalent of Old Maid.
This British version of the game is played with a special pack of 44 cards depicting the mother, father, son and daughter of eleven families. Everyone contributes equally to a pool, all the cards are dealt, and the player to dealer’s left begins. The player whose turn it is asks another player for a specific card; the asker must already hold at least one card of the same family. If the player asked has the card it must be handed over and the asker continues by asking the same or another player for another card. If the asked player does not have the wanted card they say “not at home” and the turn passes to them (not to the left in this version). Completed families are placed face down in front of the owner. When all families are complete, the player with most wins half the pool.
With a balance of speed, maneuverability and stability, the Ocean Kayak Trident performs beautifully when breaking through the surf or in rough seas. The transducer-compatible scupper and Sonar Shield compartment makes it easy to rig.
In preparation for the event I was able to fish Clopper Lake for a couple of hours over the long 4th of July holiday weekend. I found that a floating Rapala fished along the shoreline like a top water bait, and not a jerk bait, produced decent numbers of fish in the 10-12 inch range. The plan was to get some fish this way and then switch to either a spinner bait or jig for some larger fish. To fish the Rapala like a top water I would cast the lure and then let it sit until all the ripples disappeared. Then I would give it a small twitch with the rod tip and again let the ripples disappear. This process was repeated 2-3 times. If this did not produce a fish, then I would fish the lure like a jerk bait.
This game is often just known as Fish, but the name “Fish” (or Canadian Fish or Russian Fish) is also sometimes used for the more complex partnership game Literature. Go Fish is best for 3-6 players, but it is possible for 2 to play. A standard 52 card deck is used. The dealer deals 5 cards to each player (7 each for 2 players). The remaining cards are placed face down to form a stock.
After you’ve selected a kayak, it’s time to outfit it. Avid kayak angler and tournament winner Rob Wendel offers ideas on rigging. “A comfortable personal flotation device (PFD), a pair of rod holders, a crate for storage, an anchor pulley system, and a simple sonar get you started,” he says. One of the more innovative new sonar systems is Vexilar’s Sonar Phone T-Box, which provides WiFi sonar transmission to your smartphone. This eliminates the need to mount a unit. A compatible smart phone is your display.
Shrimp-lure companies remain tight-lipped about the details of their baits, although they will reveal general details of ingredients, such as polyvinyl chloride (PVC) or thermoplastic elastomers (TPE). They will also tell you how the soft baits work and why they catch fish, but I have my own essential techniques after fishing artificials for years. Shrimp basically move in three different ways: fleeing quickly backward, slowly swimming with the current or falling gently to rest on the bottom. Make sure whichever artificial shrimp you utilize successfully mimics one of these three natural movements. Too many anglers are lazy with their lure action or reel too quickly.
Becoming a master lure fisherman means knowing what attracts a fish. Live bait? That’s the easy way. If you want a real challenge that results in a record catch, you’ll need to keep these factors in mind:
Equally important is the ability to load and haul your kayak. Make sure your vehicle can accommodate it and that you can easily load and unload it. Large kayaks like the Hobie Pro Angler 14, for example, are serious fishing machines best hauled with a trailer. But I can easily load my 12-foot Hobie Outback on top of my Tahoe. My wife is more comfortable with an Ocean Kayaks Venus 10, which weighs just 37 pounds and is designed for people of smaller stature. Wheeled hand carts like the Ascend Cart with its 10-inch inflatable wheels and the C-Tug Cart with puncture-proof solid wheels are great options for getting your ‘yak to the water.
As you might expect, the Glacier Glove Alaska River series was designed for the harsh conditions expected in Alaska.
