Many other factors relate to how well a fish sees a lure or lure color—so many, we can’t discuss all of them here. Time of day, wind velocity, types of dissolved particles in the water, sky color, season—all these and more affect one’s ability to catch fish on a certain lure color.
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.
Propulsion: Most kayaks are propelled with paddle power, but pedals are an option in the Hobie Kayak Mirage Drive line. These leg-powered kayaks are popular with anglers because they free up the hands for fishing. Electric-motor-powered kayaks by manufacturers such as Old Town are also growing in popularity.
Artificial bait or fishing lures have been used to catch fish for thousands of years. Made from a wide variety of materials, colors, sizes, and styles, lures are used to attract fish and convince them to bite into the attached hook. If you want to fish with lures, you need to know the most common lure techniques and how you can use them to catch a fish.
For many fisherman, gloves are an essential piece of equipment. When cleaning fish, you want to ensure you filet the fish, not your fingers. And if you’re more of a catch and release guy, gloves will allow you to grip the fish without squeezing the fish (and damaging vital organs). Wetting the gloves will also ensure you don’t remove the fish’s protective slime layer while handling.

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.
The thickness of the gloves determines your movement of fingers. If you’re fishing on a cold day, then it’s better to choose thick gloves, generally 5-7 mm thick. Neoprene gloves come with better insulation and thickness. However, if you’re spear fishing type person, then you need more ‘feel’ on your equipment. In that case, you should not opt for gloves more than 2-3 mm thickness.
The best gloves for fishing in cold weather will be lined or insulated. Most experienced anglers recommend choosing neoprene gloves that are 5 to 7 mm thick so you have plenty of protection from the cold wind and water. If the fishing gloves are constructed from latex you will want to make sure that they come with a fleece or thermal lining, and this can also be found on some neoprene pairs that are designed specifically for ice fishing. While warmth is crucial for your safety and comfort, you also want to make sure that the gloves are not too bulky that they restrict the movements of your fingers.

Hooks are designed as either single hooks—a single eye, shank and point; double hooks—a single eye merged with two shanks and points; or triple—a single eye merged with three shanks and evenly spaced points. Double hooks are formed from a single piece of wire and may or may not have their shanks brazed together for strength. Triple hooks are formed by adding a single eyeless hook to a double hook and brazing all three shanks together. Double hooks are used on some artificial lures and are a traditional fly hook for Atlantic Salmon flies, but are otherwise fairly uncommon. Triple hooks are used on all sorts of artificial lures as well as for a wide variety of bait applications.
