The next lure on the menu are crankbaits. The classic Rapala Floating Minnow is one of most productive patterns of all time, but mini-cranks can also produce amazing results. Look for a plug that will imitate small shiners (silver), suckers (gold), or sunfish. The beauty of using a plug is that you can experiment in a wide variety of ways. You can buy floating, sinking or neutral buoyancy plugs to help you reach different depths. If the plug has a plastic lip jutting out and downward from the front of the lure, it will swim downward when you reel. So, floating lures will swim downward until you stop reeling them, at which point they will slowly begin to float back to the surface. When you stop reeling a neutral buoyancy plug, it won’t float back to the surface, and it won’t sink any further — it stops dead in the water. Sinking plugs sink, of course. They sink face first when you reel and belly first when you stop. Other than these built-in perks, the action of the lure is totally up to you. Vary your retrieve from quick to painfully slow. A straight consistent retrieve works fine, but also experiment with jerky retrieves and start & stops. If you can convince the fish that the minnow is injured and weak, it will often trigger a strike.
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.
The fact is, however, we often worry too much about all these variables and whether or not this color or that will catch the most fish. While knowing why fish may respond in one way or another to a particular color is useful, it’s possible to over-analyze the facts and fail to enjoy our fishing. I much prefer using some basic guidelines that have proven helpful regardless of when and where I’m fishing and what I’m fishing for. Perhaps they will be useful to you as well.
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.
Play begins with the player to the left of the dealer. He places the Aces in his hand facedown on the discard pile and announces his play to the table: “One Ace.” If the player does not have any Aces, or if he wishes to get rid of more than one card, he may bluff and play non-Ace cards while announcing: “Two Aces.” The next player plays 2s, the next player plays 3s, and so on. If a player doesn’t believe an announcement, he can call out, “I doubt it!” The person who played the cards must turn them over and show the challenger whether he is bluffing or not. A player who is caught bluffing must pick up the entire discard pile and add it to his hand. If a challenged player is not bluffing, then the challenger must pick up the discard pile. When the rank to play reaches Kings, it then goes back to Aces and the numbers start again.
Big fish and 400-pound leaders? Use heavily padded gloves that allow you to apply the proper amount of pressure needed to turn and lift a big fish, Perry says. Wiring sailfish on a light leader? Scale down the gloves so you can “feel” your quarry, react to its surges and avoid break-offs.
Moving clockwise, players take turns asking a specific player for a given rank of card. If someone asks you for a rank that you have, the cards are taken from your hand. if you do not have any cards of that rank, your opponent must go fish, taking one new card from the pile of cards.
In the water, the D.O.A. Shrimp falls slowly and level, imitating a real shrimp heading for the bottom. “The D.O.A. Shrimp is different than a lot of the shrimp-imitation lures on the market today,” says Zyak. “Many of the new lures look more realistic than the real thing but can’t compare to the action of the original D.O.A. Shrimp.”

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.
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.
Plastic frogs have become very popular lately. Frogging hooks have a spring wire on the front that screws into the frog’s nose. Once secured, the bait remains free to pivot in any direction when the hook is set. Of course, the frog rig excels in lily pads and other thick vegetation.
Surface fishing lures are made to imitate things like mice, lizards, frogs, larger crawling insects and smaller injured fish. These fishing lures usually have a solid body made out of wood or plastic, carry one or two treble hooks and have an eyelet at the front to attach your fishing line.
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.
Obviously, the lure will represent something swimming in such a way as to trigger a trout to pursue and attempt eat it. Perhaps the most popular option is the in-line spinner bait. A well-known example is the ever-popular Rooster Tail, but there are several other outstanding options offered under the names Blue Fox, Mepps and Panther Martin. For most Missouri streams, 1/8 oz and 1/16 oz sizes in a variety of colors will work well. In-line spinners are designed to imitate minnows and work best when retrieved in a straight line at a moderate speed. If you reel too slowly, the spinner won’t spin properly, which often puts the trout off.
