Strength matters, so be sure to consider construction. Carbon steel delivers the toughness needed for exposure to water, salt and other challenges of marine environments, and tempered or forged construction gives a boost of sturdiness. Chemically sharpened points add extra hardness, while offset fishing hooks and nor-tempering promote reliable performance each time you cast.
Built with both the serious and the aspiring offshore angler in mind, the Thresher is efficient and quick, yet stable and predictable to handle ever-changing open water conditions. The deck is laid out for maximum gear storage, capacity, and accessibility.

While there are lots of specialty fishing hooks available, a handful of select hook styles do the brunt of the work for most fishing presentations. Bait, circle, treble, and worms hooks are a few examples. The following is a primer on popular fish hooks and some of their applications.
Cast your lure and let it remain still while the line starts to sink. Do nothing for several seconds, then slowly start to work the lure beneath the surface by making short retrieval reels, then letting it sink back down.
Ideal for either fresh or saltwater fishing, this pair can be washed in the machine, so you won’t need to launder them by hand. They can be left to drip dry. You will enjoy many seasons of service from the gloves.
Your opportunity to use movement to your advantage lies completely in the retrieve. You may think that you have a tried-and-true method, but fish are finicky and respond differently depending on their type and mood.
For a smaller kayak, the Tetra Angler has big storage with two flush-mount rod holders and a Mod Pod II center hatch that allows easy access to the rods from a seated position. The Comfort Hybrid Seat Back provides excellent back support.
In addition to the stealth factor, Ernst says the ability to get into skinny water and fish slower has made him a better fisherman. “Some waters in central Tennessee harbor double-digit brown trout and monster stripers, but you need to drag a boat across rock shoals to get to productive holes. These fish are wary to begin with. And in these confined settings you can kiss them goodbye if you run a jetboat over them or drag an aluminum jonboat across rocks.
Also, the materials should have waterproof feature. Obviously, you don’t want the inner side of your gloves being wet. That’s why, while most of the gloves come with proper insulation inside, they have another layer of waterproof materials outside.
The Lindy fish handling glove is fitted for your hands, and has a Velcro strap to ensure it stays tight on your hand. This glove is also machine washable, so it will stay clean and durable throughout the entire time you need it.
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.
Siwash fishing hooks have a long shank and a straight eye to ensure they sit properly on lures. Siwash hooks are often used on single-hook baits, such as spinnerbaits. They’re also an excellent alternative to factory-provided treble hooks on spoons and other baits. These hooks are handy to replace treble hooks on hard-baits when fishing a zone that limit hook points on a per lure. The Gamakatsu Siwash Open Eye hook is a quality Siwash hook.
“The jig head [rig], with a 60-degree line tie, is designed to fish with a lift-drop technique or by slowly swimming it,” says Quinn. “The weighted swimbait hook is the choice for a weedless presentation or when a slower retrieve speed is required.”
One of the most effective (and one of the first plugs you should add to your tackle box) is the long, narrow minnow imitation in three to four inch length, the original is made by Rapala. It floats when its not moving and dives shallowly when it’s retrieved. Add a split ring to the eye if it doesn’t have one. Cast it out and wait until the rings on the surface of the water dissipate, then retrieve it slowly or fast, stopping suddenly and maybe throwing in an occasional twitch.
These warm and comfortable neoprene gloves feature a no-slip grip construction that is heavy-duty, yet flexible. Easy-access to index finger and thumb allow for easy casting and knot tying.A secure Velcro wrist closure keeps the gloves in place while also keeping out the cold.

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.
“Using the GoFish Cam is a step up in the angling experience. The cam hooked on my line seamlessly and I found that the size, weight, and buoyancy of the cam afforded minimal weight change when in the water. I would absolutely use GoFish Cam for any fishing excursion.”
If there was ever a fish-friendly hook, it is the circle hook. The unique circular design eliminates gut hooking fish even when the bait is swallowed. As the fishermen pulls on the line, the hook slides forward until it reaches the fish’s mouth. Once there, it lodges in the side of the mouth. These hooks are popular in the saltwater world, but are making their way into the freshwater side as well.
If you are not sure whether you are getting a bite, set the hook immediately. If you stop and ask yourself whether or not you just got a bite the fish will be long gone. Except for some soft plastic lures, fish don’t usually hold onto lures for more than a second.

Are the fish telling you anything? Sometimes you must experiment and let the fish tell you what they want. Switch colors periodically without changing any other variables, and pay attention to details when fish hit. If you can fish with multiple poles or multiple lures, start with a mix of colors and see if fish show a preference. Often a single rod gets all the action until you switch all lures to the “color of the day.”
You can catch trout in all types of water using these lures and techniques, but aggressively feeding trout will tend to be found in the pools and channels immediately downstream from riffles, so start there! You’ll also find ambush-feeding trout around root wads and undercut banks — always worth a look.

There is no need to convince the thousands of Virginians and avid outdoors men and women, who get excited by reeling in a 30-pound striper or seeing a beautiful brook trout rise to a fly, why they need to start making plans to head outside.
