Charlie, ProStaff and guide for The Kayak Fishing Store, was born and raised in Cape May, NJ. Fishing has always been a passion of his; from working on party boats, charter/sport fishing boats, commercial trawlers, scallopers, and clam boats. The experience he gained in his endeavors has helped him to understand tide, moon, and fish patterns. Charlie has been an avid surf fisherman for over 35 years fishing from Montauk to the Florida Keys. In 2008 Charlie tried kayak fishing and hasn’t looked back! With help from his long-time friend Chris Parson, the pair began the forum board JerseyCapeKayakFishing.net.
Jig fishing takes a lot of concentration, unlike spinners, all the “action” (how a lure moves in the water) comes from you. If you don’t do anything the jig just sinks. classic way to fish a jig is to cast it out, wait until it hits the bottom (you will know it has hit bottom when your line goes slack), then retrieve it in a series of hops. You make it hop by lifting the rod tip, lowering it, and retrieving your line. Try different speeds, big lifts, little hops, twitching until you find what works. Pay attention, though. Detecting the strike is the hardest thing about jigging.

Any color readily seen provides an advantage, but the ease with which a fish can spot a lure against the prevailing background often is more important than the lure’s color. It’s helpful, therefore, to know the position from which a fish will view your lure and against what backdrop. If the fish will see your lure from the side against a weedy green background, a lure that contrasts with that background will stand out better. This is why, for example, a dark-colored lure may work best at night. After dark, predator fish often position themselves so they can see silhouettes of prey passing overhead against the somewhat lighter sky, and dark colors create sharper outlines.
The shape of the hook shank can vary widely from merely straight to all sorts of curves, kinks, bends and offsets. These different shapes contribute in some cases to better hook penetration, fly imitations or bait holding ability. Many hooks intended to hold dead or artificial baits have sliced shanks which create barbs for better baiting holding ability. Jig hooks are designed to have lead weight molded onto the hook shank. Hook descriptions may also include shank length as standard, extra long, 2XL, short, etc. and wire size such as fine wire, extra heavy, 2X heavy, etc.
In 1993, we adopted fleece into our product line made from post consumer recycled (PCR) plastic soda bottles. We were the first outdoor clothing manufacturer to do so. PCR® clothing was a positive step towards a more sustainable system – one that uses fewer resources, discards less and better protects people’s health.
The gloves are made in the USA. The neoprene made gloves come with a lining made of micro fleece to offer a greater insulation in the winter season. Also, the 3 mm thickness keeps a balance between feel and warmth.
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.
For more advanced rigging, Scotty and YakAttack make gear tracks that make it easy to remove or reposition rod holders and other accessories like a GoPro camera. Many new accessories are designed to mount on Scotty bases or Gear Head Track Adapters so anglers can modify ‘yaks to fit their changing needs without drilling holes in the hull.

Now that you’ve got the basics down, we’re ready to tackle the subject head-on with our ten tips for lure fishing success. These tips and tricks are tried and tested by the pros. Keep your tackle box on hand and give them all a try to see what works best in your neck of the woods. Here we go:
While bottom fishing or jigging can be done from small boats, it was long thought that effective trolling required speeds of five to ten knots, a speed well out of the range of someone paddling. However, the discovery that fish could be taken at much lesser speeds has increased the popularity of kayak fishing.
Make sure to follow local regulations on the number of fish you may retain. Although you may catch 100 fish using good bait, you might only be allowed to keep a small number of fish or a certain size fish. Some areas are catch and release only, so be cognizant of fishing regulations.
The glove is a bit more pricey, but that price pales in comparison to a trip to the emergency room. And when you think about the hazards inherent with fishing: fishing hooks, needle-sharp fins and teeth- not injuring your bare hands would be a blessing. Mix in a sharp knife with your slippery catch, and you’ll be begging for a pair of gloves like these. The glove is available for both the left or right hand. The Lindy is easy to locate in your tackle with high-visibility orange fabric and is available in three sizes- small/medium, large/extra large and double extra large.
Some rides are too fun to pass up. Years ago, the Jamaicans grabbed headlines with their Olympic bobsled team. It was a feel-good, fish-out-of-water story. What was not to love about a bunch of guys taking an unorthodox route for the ride of their lives.
For beginners, using a larger bobber that you can see from the bank makes catching fish much easier. With a bobber, the angler will be able to see a strike from a fish when the bobber starts to jerk and disappear below the surface of the water. Put on just enough shot (sinkers), however, to compensate for the larger bobber to prevent being too hard to see the action of the biting fish.
Take ‘N’ Play Anywhere games feature big magnetic playing pieces that are easy for kids to use and hard for kids to lose. The convenient 6 3/4″ square tin case makes it easy to slip the games into most bags to take everywhere and keep kids entertained on a trip, waiting at the doctor’s office, dining out, while stuck in traffic or just visiting grandma’s house. In Go Fishing, use the magnetic fishing poles to catch the colorful fish and put them in your boat.
Like many anglers new to kayaks, Johnston went through trial and error in selecting, rigging, and fishing from a kayak. Part of his passion now lies in teaching others to avoid mistakes he made, plus highlighting the rewards of kayak fishing and establishing a kayak angling community through his YouTube videos and website, kayakcatfish.com.

Match the color to the water. Using the “right” color of lure is generally determined by water clarity. Murky water and dusk or night fishing requires bright-colored lures more easily seen by fishermen and fish alike. White and red lures are common in these conditions, while clear water conditions would call for more muted or naturally occurring colors, like brown, blue, black, and green.

My 3 year old LOVED playing this while on our recent international flight! It was fun and unique. Just what we needed! I do wish the fish had been a little more magnetic. A couple of them didn’t stick to the fishing pole very well but we made it work.
Most of the fishing gloves come at a very affordable price. If you check the table above, then you will be able to understand the price tag of these gloves. My suggestion is not to go for cheap fishing gloves, as they tend to have less durability and efficiency in the long run.
I’ve seen the “Let’s Go Fishing” folks in action. Quite simply, they’re making a positive difference in people’s lives. They’re giving a group of people something to look forward to, they’re creating excitement and smiles, they’re injecting happiness into the lives of the people they touch.
