Michael Ernst is a diehard fishing transplant from Minnesota. He grew up guiding for muskies from a Ranger Z20 Comanche and now plies the rivers and reservoirs of Tennessee in his Jackson Big Tuna kayak for everything from muskies and stripers to crappies and trout. “In all my years of guiding from my Ranger,” Ernst says, “I was never able to spot a big muskie, target it with a lure, and make it bite. They can see you or are affected by the vibration of the trolling motor, and your odds of connecting with a trophy fish are reduced. But I‘ve often spotted muskies in clear Tennessee rivers, paddled close enough to make a good cast, and watched the fish eat the lure. The paddle strokes associated with a kayak seem like a natural splashing sound to fish that doesn’t register as threatening. They continue their feeding routine, even though you’re only a couple yards away.”
After my first week on the Mississippi River, I sent three fishing rods and a large tackle box home. After seven days of fishing and catching many walleye, smallmouth bass, northern pike, crappie and bluegills, I didn’t anticipate needing anything but a medium-action, fast-tip, seven-foot spinning rod, a Mitchell 300 reel with six-pound line and a box of spinners and leadhead jigs.

Hook shapes and names are as varied as fish themselves. In some cases hooks are identified by a traditional or historic name, e.g. Aberdeen, Limerick or O’Shaughnessy. In other cases, hooks are merely identified by their general purpose or have included in their name, one or more of their physical characteristics. Some manufacturers just give their hooks model numbers and describe their general purpose and characteristics. For example:
Bring your fish in with a net. When you’ve got the fish tired out and reeled in, bring it out of the water and have a partner catch it in your fishing net, or carefully catch it yourself. Be wary of the fish’s sharp spines and the hook, which might be sticking out through the fish’s mouth.
Each player is dealt a hand of 10 cards and the remaining 12 cards are stacked face down on the table. A player who does not have the requested card draws one card from the stock before asking the opponent for a card. The remaining rules are the same as in the three-player game.
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.
Ice Fishing Tip: One important tip to keep in mind when ice fishing with gloves, is that no matter how waterproof your gloves may be, it only takes one hook to allow water to get it. I know that may seem obvious, but you would be surprised how many fishermen ruin their expensive ice fishing gloves with one lousy fishing hook. One thing that has helped me is a good pair of fishing pliers. This puts some distance between the hooks and my gloves. Also, keep this is mind when storing your gloves. The last place you want your gloves to end up is in your tacklebox with all kinds of hooks to get into them.

Plugs are constructed from hollow plastic or wood to resemble baitfish, frogs or other prey. They usually sport two or three treble hooks. These hard bodied lures can be fished at almost any depth, as some are made to float or dive or both. Depending on the design, a plug will wobble, rattle or gurgle. They come in all sizes, and most of them have some sort of plastic lip that allows them to dive when you pull them through the water. Different kind of plugs include: crankbaits, jerkbaits, surface plugs, floating/diving plugs, and poppers,
Bait tank: There are a few onboard livewell options for kayaks, and most are large, heavy, and expensive. A YouTube search reveals several do-it-yourself plans if you intend to keep live shad. An option for hardier baits is a flow-through bait container like a Frabill Flow Troll Bucket. They create drag but perform much better than stringers for baits like bluegills. To keep cutbait fresh, the best option I’ve found is the soft-side Yeti 12-Pack Hopper. If you vacuum-seal baits in individual bags and your lunch and drinks in another, it’s a good option for even the hottest of days.
A fish hook or fishhook is a device for catching fish either by impaling them in the mouth or, more rarely, by snagging the body of the fish. Fish hooks have been employed for centuries by fishermen to catch fresh and saltwater fish. In 2005, the fish hook was chosen by Forbes as one of the top twenty tools in the history of man. Fish hooks are normally attached to some form of line or lure which connects the caught fish to the fisherman. There is an enormous variety of fish hooks in the world of fishing. Sizes, designs, shapes, and materials are all variable depending on the intended purpose of the fish hook. Fish hooks are manufactured for a range of purposes from general fishing to extremely limited and specialized applications. Fish hooks are designed to hold various types of artificial, processed, dead or live baits (bait fishing); to act as the foundation for artificial representations of fish prey (fly fishing); or to be attached to or integrated into other devices that represent fish prey (lure fishing).
The secret to our success is the unmistakable, irresistible “wounded minnow” swimming action of our lures. Now matter how you fish them—slow or fast, shallow or deep—our lures draw strikes like no others. Even the most negative fish can be tempted with a Rapala. Many have tried, but none have been able to imitate that classic Rapala action. This is partly because Rapala is still the only company in the world that mass produces fishing lures made of balsa wood. It’s a more difficult process, but crucial to achieving the swimming action that drives fish No shortcuts. No gimmicks. No flash in the pan next greatest things. Just a legacy of quality that shines in every lure as brightly as the internal holographic foil and black nickel hooks.
Octopus hooks are short-shank hooks that feature a round shank and bend, but it’s not as dramatic as circle hooks. Octopus hooks are often used for bait fishing when minimal hook weight and size is essential for a natural presentation. These hooks are great for hooking a leech through the sucker. The Bass Pro Shops XPS Octopus hook is a good example and highly rated. A mosquito hook is a variation on this style.
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.

I want to impress upon anglers the need to manipulate today’s shrimp lures expertly to draw strikes from species more effectively than anything I caught on my first trip in South Florida. Catching, buying and keeping a dozen shrimp alive is inconvenient and limiting; instead, you can use the latest shrimp plastics to successfully chase species such as bonefish, striped bass, drum and speckled trout.

The Indonesian version of Go Fish is known as Omben in Javanese or Minuman in Indonesian, both names meaning “drink”. It is said to be best for two players, each of whom begins with a hand of 4 or 5 cards (according to agreement) drawn from a 52 card pack. The players take turns to ask their opponent for a rank, such as 8 or king, and the opponent must give the asker all cards of that rank that he or she holds. If the opponent has no such card the asker must “drink” by drawing cards from the pile of undealt cards: the asker continues to draw until he or she finds a card of the rank that was asked for. Whenever a player has four of a kind in hand, it must be discarded face up. The winner is the first player to get rid of all their cards – it does not matter how many or few sets they have made. If the stock runs out, the player with fewer cards is the winner. Note that in this game the players ask alternately, irrespective of whether the card asked for is found in the other player’s hand or the draw pile.
“We wanted our shrimp to imitate the real thing so the bait not only appeals to fishermen, but also puts fish in the boat,” says J.W. Pender, operations manager of Almost Alive Lures in North Carolina.
Try spinning lures. A spinner is a type of jib with a blade that turns, pulling the lure through the water. Spinners and spoons are usually made of metal and either wobble or spin through the water in the same way as real fish and a spinner is a bit of a hybrid between crankbaits and spoons. Often, these lures feature a large single hook which is covered by some form of trailing material as well as a metal blade which spins in the water as the lure is being retrieved. These lures generally cause “noise” which can induce a fish to strike.

A bid of no-trump is best when you have 15 high-card points, and your hand’s distribution is balanced, meaning a 4-3-3-3, 4-4-3-2, or 5-3-3-2 combination. You should also have all suits stopped, meaning you have the A, the K-Q, the Q-J-10, and/or the J-10-9-8 in each suit. These card combinations will prevent your opponents from taking a run of tricks in one suit. Most of the time, however, you’ll have to make do with “probable” stoppers, such as K-x, Q-J- x, Q-10-x, or even Q-x-x.
