There is no need to convince the thousands of Virginians and avid outdoors men and women, who get excited by reeling in a 30-pound striper or seeing a beautiful brook trout rise to a fly, why they need to start making plans to head outside. But if for some reason, you need a little convincing, we have compiled a list of 10 good examples that might just offer you an excuse to call in sick to work or leave those “honey do’s” for another weekend so you too can spend a day fishing.

Lure fishing for trout doesn’t exactly have much of a storied tradition to report on, but it sure is fun. The way to be successful fishing in this manner is fairly cut and dried. It starts with having the right equipment.
You can catch trout in all types of water using these lures and techniques, but aggressively feeding will tend to be found in the pools and channels immediately downstream from riffles, so start there! You’ll also find ambush-feeding trout around root wads and undercut banks — always worth a look.
Length: In general, the longer the kayak, the faster it will be and the more easily it will cover distances. The trade-off is a loss of maneuverability in tight spaces and difficulty in transporting the kayak to launch sites.
We’re talking about bass in this example, and other fish species may or may not be similar when it comes to color detection. There are some factors, however, that come into play regardless of the species you’re targeting. For example, lure depth should be considered when selecting colors because as light penetrates water, different wavelengths in the color spectrum begin disappearing. Subtle variations in lure color may be important when fishing on or near the water’s surface, but colors become increasingly less relevant in deeper waters where they are filtered out. Moreover, in muddy water, it’s pointless to fret over the exact shade of blue or green because reds, oranges and yellows are about the only colors of light available.

Any color readily seen provides an advantage, but the ease with which a fish can spot a lure against the prevailing background often is more important than the lure’s color. It’s helpful, therefore, to know the position from which a fish will view your lure and against what backdrop. If the fish will see your lure from the side against a weedy green background, a lure that contrasts with that background will stand out better. This is why, for example, a dark-colored lure may work best at night. After dark, predator fish often position themselves so they can see silhouettes of prey passing overhead against the somewhat lighter sky, and dark colors create sharper outlines.
The hook point is probably the most important part of the hook. It is the point that must penetrate fish flesh and secure the fish. The profile of the hook point and its length influence how well the point penetrates. The barb influences how far the point penetrates, how much pressure is required to penetrate and ultimately the holding power of the hook. Hook points are mechanically (ground) or chemically sharpened. Some hooks are barbless. Historically, many ancient fish hooks were barbless, but today a barbless hook is used to make hook removal and fish release less stressful on the fish. Hook points are also described relative to their offset from the hook shank. A kirbed hook point is offset to the left, a straight point has no offset and a reversed point is offset to the right.

“I also recommend a paddle leash, a whistle for safety, a dry bag, and a waterproof box like Plano’s Guide Series or Pelican’s Micro Case for your wallet and phone,” Wendel says. “No matter where you fish, keep gear simple and within reach.” Kayakers live by the motto of leash it or lose it. Simply put, anything that doesn’t have a leash attached is susceptible to being knocked overboard and lost if your kayak flips.

Get something to keep the fish in. If you’re planning on keeping your fish, you’ll want to get a fish cage to keep the fish trapped in water, or a simple bucket to throw them in while you continue fishing. A net is also useful for getting the fish wrangled before you try to grab it off the line.

Quick History: Although nobody can identify the origin of the hair jig with any accuracy, weighted hooks can be traced back to dates that just barely have four numbers. You have to assume that ancient anglers added mastodon hair to make the offering a little more appealing. Spro has the widest variety of hair jigs we could find, and a great color assortment, so they get the nod on our list.
The game can be played by 2 – 4 players. First cards are dealt to the players, if there are 2 players then each gets 7 cards, if there are 3 players then each gets 6 cards and if there are 4 players then each gets 5 cards. Once the dealing is done the rest of the deck is put in a random pile on the table.
Of all lures, I would say that jigs are the most versatile. A jig can catch about every game fish there is, and are inexpensive to boot. They have a weighted lead head and come in every size and color and can be “dressed” (think of it like a tail or skirt) in feathers, hair, a soft plastic grub, or with the bait of your choice.
