A lighter line will normally increase the action of lures that dance, buzz, or hum. One way to up your chances of a catch is to keep two rods with you, each with a different size line. If one lure isn’t working on a particular line, just pop it on the next one and give it a shot. The difference in line diameter may be invisible to you, but the number of fish you nab will surely open your eyes.
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.
Size: When angling for bass, choose a 4-inch model and pair it with a ½-ounce jighead. Slow-roll it over submerged treetops and rock piles when fish are inactive, and buzz it near the surface when the fish are feeding. Choose a slightly bigger model for your inshore needs. Bull redfish will crush the 6-inch version no matter how fast you reel it.
This selection served me well the rest of the way down the 2,500 miles of the river. I never went hungry because I couldn’t catch a fish and my go-to lure was a 1/8-ounce jig, tipped with a three-inch yellow Mr. Twister.
Wendel says that a comfortable seat is essential for long days on the water. “Hobie recently mounted Vantage CT seats in all their kayaks,” he says.” They feature an adjustable height setting—a low position for easier pedaling and a high position to give anglers a better vantage point.” Other seat options include the Skwoosh Big Catch High Back with lumbar support and the Danuu Pacific Angler Fishing Kayak Seat, which has pockets and storage built into the back.
Although duct tape does offer a solution to a wide variety of problems, using duct tape to fix a ripped hole on your fishing gloves is not one of them. Because you are dealing with water, the duct tape will not hold for a long time when operating under those conditions. In addition to this, duct tape does not offer you much protection from being cut by a fish, as it will slice thru the duct tape. The best practice here is if your fishing glove has been ripped, then it is time to replace.
Responsible grandparents may worry that this game teaches kids to be liars. Not really. This game allows children to practice observing the behavior of liars and truth-tellers, an important skill to have in life.

As mentioned before, fish are attracted to differences in their environment. If your retrieve doesn’t change, fish will start to ignore it. Something as simple as a slight pause or a little tug can evoke a sharp attack if the moment is right!
Crew Captains have access to educational materials (Go FishIN Crew Captain Manual, fish ID books, coloring books, posters, etc.) and fishing equipment (Shakespeare spincast rods/reels and tackle boxes containing bobbers, sinkers, hooks, and pliers).
They can also be worn for fresh and saltwater applications, and you will love how easy these gloves are to clean afterwards. Simply toss them in the washing machine, line dry, and they will be ready to go on your next fishing trip.

This may be the first time you hear me say this, but Go Fish was too artistic and dated for my enjoyment. I think that if I had seen this film when it was first released back in 1994 I would have been impressed. This was a very avant-garde film that tried very hard to discuss issue that was very “hush-hush” back in the early 90s. Lesbians were very closeted back then and were not a major part of the culture norm as they are today (well, as much as we recognize them today). This makes for a very provocative film, but it also makes for a very dated film. This was my biggest issue with this film was that it nearly felt like a comedy instead of this symbolic struggle to pursue happiness like any heterosexual relationship. I realize that director Rose Troche was trying to show us that a lesbian relationship is no different than a male and female relationship and even lesbians talk like men talk about women, but somehow it just felt very dated and cliché for me. It didn’t open more doors in my mind to the lifestyle of lesbians, but instead gave me this dated image of this butch lesbian that is rebelling against something instead of embracing the true lifestyle.
With the recent ground swell in popularity of catch-and-release, the single Siwash hook has gained enormous exposure. Siwashs replace treble hooks on article baits; damaging fish less than trebles. Most come with the eye “opened” for ease-of-use when replacing trebles.

If you are fishing with another fisher around remember to keep your distance and don’t cast near where he/she is because the line can get tangled and they can get quite angry and frustrated. If you do make sure to apologize after and try not to do it again.
Effectiveness: The jig is designed to mimic a minnow, or represent some other food source. Sometimes, a properly-fished jig will cause a reflexive strike for a game fish. While I have a tackle box full of various lures, I generally start out with a jig, and seldom have reason to switch.
For most lakes, ponds, small impoundments, and rivers with moderate to slow current, a kayak with intermediate characteristics often performs best and is most versatile. Such models range from 10 to 14 feet long, with widths from 28 to 36 inches to match an angler’s size, fishing style, and personal preference. If you like to stand and cast, a wider kayak is more stable. You also need to decide if you want to paddle, pedal, or use power as your mode of propulsion.
Maintaining the sleek and speedy performance attributes of the original Tarpon, the new 130X is updated with feature upgrades such as the versatile FlexPod OS, allowing for storage, electronic and propulsion opportunities.
