In many ways, fishing with lures is akin to hunting, while bait fishing is more like trapping. In other words, the bait fisher sets out his or her “traps” (baited hooks) and waits for the prey to stumble upon them. In contrast, a lure fisher can cover more water in less time. Like a hunter using a rifle or bow, the lure caster or troller actively seeks out the prey, and his or her lures are effectively bullets and arrows.
By adding weight to the hook, instead of on the line, finesse baits appear smaller and less clunky. Weighted hooks are far more weedless as they eliminate the sliding weight which can snag in vegetation.
Having said that, there’s no question that the very best, most consistently successful anglers are almost always those who cut their fishing teeth using natural baits. Bait fishing teaches new chums the absolute basics of the sport, including what food items fish prefer to eat, where fish expect to find those food items, and how and when fish prey upon them. Whether you remain a dedicated bait fisher for life or go on to try lures or even fly fishing, understanding these fundamental basics of the sport will stand you in great stead.

“Because the keel weight is positioned under the shrimp’s belly, the bait itself wants to float upright. The EZ ShrimpZ won’t roll over on its side like most shrimp made from traditional soft plastics,” says Nussbaum.
While most fishing kayaks have ample latched storage compartments at the bow or stern, they can be difficult to access on the water. For this reason, anglers often secure a milk crate behind their seat to keep essentials within reach. For those looking for an upgrade, Jackson Kayaks has designed the Jkrate Elite. It has two built-in Ram Tough Balls and Rocket Rod Holders for adjustable rod storage, a removable lid with two YakAttack tracks for adding accessories, and a waterproof interior that accommodates several Plano Stowaway 3700 boxes.

There are a large number of different types of fish hooks. At the macro level, there are bait hooks, fly hooks and lure hooks. Within these broad categories there are wide varieties of hook types designed for different applications. Hook types differ in shape, materials, points and barbs, and eye type and ultimately in their intended application. When individual hook types are designed the specific characteristics of each of these hook components are optimized relative to the hook’s intended purpose. For example, a delicate dry fly hook is made of thin wire with a tapered eye because weight is the overriding factor. Whereas Carlisle or Aberdeen light wire bait hooks make use of thin wire to reduce injury to live bait but the eyes are not tapered because weight is not an issue. Many factors contribute to hook design, including corrosion resistance, weight, strength, hooking efficiency, and whether the hook is being used for specific types of bait, on different types of lures or for different styles of flies. For each hook type, there are ranges of acceptable sizes. For all types of hooks, sizes range from 32 (the smallest) to 20/0 (the largest).

If a player gets one or more cards of the named rank he asked for, he is entitled to ask the same or another player for a card. He can ask for the same card or a different one. So long as he succeeds in getting cards (makes a catch), his turn continues. When a player makes a catch, he must reveal the card so that the catch is verified. If a player gets the fourth card of a book, he shows all four cards, places them on the table face up in front of him, and plays again.
Great idea!! I think it’s wonderful that Lets Go Fishing has made this program happen. What an opportunity for senior citizens who love fishing as much as I do, but can no longer go by themselves. Fishing has no age limitations, and I plan on enjoying it as long as I live.
