“Years ago I suggested on this web site, orange hand cleaner for removal of oil/tar. Spike emailed me asking that I keep an eye on the cleaned area for signs of “reactions”. I still have the OK Scrambler. The area cleaned looks the same as the rest of the kayak. I do store the kayak indoors and use “303” protectant about once per month. Perhaps the extra care has been helpful.” Thanks to Bill Hartman, Oxnard California.
Charlie, ProStaff and guide for The Kayak Fishing Store, was born and raised in Cape May, NJ. Fishing has always been a passion of his; from working on party boats, charter/sport fishing boats, commercial trawlers, scallopers, and clam boats. The experience he gained in his endeavors has helped him to understand tide, moon, and fish patterns. Charlie has been an avid surf fisherman for over 35 years fishing from Montauk to the Florida Keys. In 2008 Charlie tried kayak fishing and hasn’t looked back! With help from his long-time friend Chris Parson, the pair began the forum board JerseyCapeKayakFishing.net.
Choosing the right bait for your rod is important, fishing is not easy therefore you have to use the best bait available! The fish shaped fishing bait is special, the 3D eyes will trick even the smart…

Attach your weights and bobbers. If the water is quite swift, as in a river or stream, it is probably best to attach weights (sinkers) to your line about 12″ above your bait. By weighting down your line you will keep your bait in place an inch or a few inches above the floor of the water—right where fish are likely to be hunting.
Found it to be built well works great and seems very durable I weigh 250lbs and no issues. I’ve seen reviews about the skeg falling off, this has to be operator error because it’s very hard to remove on purpose. But I can definitely so how easy it be to install incorrectly, I almost did it myself. When installed correctly it cannot be removed without first depressing two tabs that lock it in. All in all very good deal for the money.
Recreation: Having a bad day of fishing still beats a day in the office or tending to house chores. The most common reason you will find with people who like to fish is that it is simply fun, whether you enjoy trolling for stripers or outwitting a weary brook trout with a hand-tied fly that imitates an insect the size of a pin head.
The initial player is selected at random. The player can then ask one of the other players for a particular rank. For example, you might ask Bill if he has any sixes. You may only ask for ranks that you already have at least one card of. E.g. if you don’t have any sixes yourself you can’t ask for them. If Bill has any sixes, then he must give them to you, and you get another turn and can ask again. If Bill doesn’t have any sixes then he will tell you to “Go Fish” which means that you will draw one card from the pile on the table. If you get a six, then you show it to the other players and get to play again. If you get anything else you are finished with your turn and the player next to you plays.
This is Go Fish without the stock pile. All the cards are dealt out as equally as possible to the players. A turn consists of asking a player for a rank (or a specific card if you play that version). If they have it your turn continues; if not the turn passes to the next player player to the left. As in Go Fish, you must have a card of the rank you asked for. Books of 4 cards are discarded. The game continues until all the cards are formed into books, and whoever gets most books wins – or you can score one point per book and play to a target score.

A variant Backstab Fish is played in Adelaide with 108 cards including four jokers. There are 4-10 players, 7 cards each are dealt and the aim is to make sets of four equal cards, suits being ignored. At your turn you ask a specific player for a specific number of cards of a rank of which you hold at least one: for example you could ask a player for three sixes if you hold a six. The player gives you the exact number of cards you asked for, if she has them: if not – for example if she only has two sixes – you have to draw a card from the stock and the turn passes to the player you asked. In this game you are not required to lay down four of a kind. You can keep them as a basis for asking for more cards of that rank, but if you do not put them down you may lose some or all of them if another player asks for them.
Before you can evaluate the fishing kayaks at your local paddlesport shop or marina, it’s helpful to understand some of the important characteristics of kayaks. Most fishing kayaks can be used for a variety of activities, but understand that no one kayak excels at every activity. Choosing a kayak, like choosing a boat or a car, means mulling over a long list of specifications and deciding what features are “must-haves” and which ones are compromises. Once you understand your options, you can start down the path of choosing the right kayak for your intended purposes. These are some of the basics to consider before you buy your first, or next, fishing kayak.
There’s more to getting on a boat than just having fun. It’s also about health, interacting with others, and using all our senses to experience nature and all it can bring to us. Read about our mission.

Supports Wildlife and Fisheries Management: Angling is an important wildlife management tool. For more than 100 years anglers have helped to contribute to wildlife and fisheries management efforts by helping to set seasons and creel limits. Wildlife populations of most fish species remain stable and in some cases flourish, a far cry from a decade ago when many species suffered from over harvest and the ill effects of pollution. Anglers also have a vested interest in and support many efforts to preserve and protect all species and the environment-all the while helping to increase biodiversity.
For quick excursions on the lake or for fun out at camp, inflatable kayaks offer a viable option. The lightweight design of inflatable kayaks makes them ideal for moving between locations or for tucking away on the go. Units with hand pumps make inflation and deflation simple. Even though they are lightweight, inflatable kayaks come equipped with helpful features, such as cargo nets for keeping accessories in place, deep cockpits for added stability, polyester deck covers to protect against UV rays and grab lines that let you pull the unit easily out of the water after your adventure.

Now, while a simple Zebco-style spincast outfit may work fine, they’re not always very good at casting thin flimsy line, which is a necessity. Some of the pricier spincast reels do quite nicely, but a lightweight spinning reel with a medium action 6-foot rod is a better place to start for most fishermen. Some trout fishermen love the challenge of an ultra-light set-up, but this is not necessary. The smaller the reel, the smaller the crank ratio. The shorter the rod, the less shock absorber effect you’ll have, meaning you’ll have to use your drag setting and brains to avoid breaking the line. In other words, landing the fish is more difficult. Shorter rods also make it tougher to cast long distances.
