Bob has been involved with kayak fishing since the late 90’s. It started as an extension of his love of surf fishing while on a trip to the Downeast coast of Maine. Bob has introduced scores of anglers to his home waters on the Upper Chesapeake Bay, better known as the Susquehanna Flats, targeting primarily spawn run Striped Bass. He has fished the East Coast for many species of fish, primarily saltwater, From Maine to the Carolinas, with the bulk of his time split between Maryland and New Jersey. In recent years Bob has become a steadfast supporter of Heroes On The Water (HOW) through volunteering his time guiding Heroes and helping organize fund raising events benefiting them.

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 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.

Lights: If you plan on fishing after dark, check regulations regarding nav-light requirements for kayaks. Many lights on the market meet regulations. I use the Yak Attack Visi-Carbon Pro. It’s an LED light powered by AA batteries on a pole that easily breaks down for storage when not in use. Reflective tape added the hull also can make you more visible at night.
Go Fish is a simple game that is popular with children (my 6 year old son for example). There are many variations of it, the rules here describe how it works on this website. It may not be exactly the way you are used to playing.
Handling the fishes are pretty easy with this fishing glove. If you are a professional fisherman, you will know how frustrating it is to handle or release large fishes. The added grip makes it sure to handle and release the fishes more easily.
This game is sometimes played with special cards, and sometimes with a 54-card pack including two jokers, which act as normal cards forming a pair. Jonny Groves describes a similar game played in the USA, and suggests that a pair of jokers should be scored as 2 points rather than 1 since it is harder to make than other pairs. For similar reasons, collecting two pairs of the same rank should score 3 points rather than 2.
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.
The two basic kinds of reels are baitcast reels, which spool vertically when you’re holding the rod, and spinning reels, which spool perpendicular to the rod. Spinning reels are more common for the beginner, and are available in open and closed varieties. Closed varieties are generally operated with a push-button and are great for the beginner.
In-line spinner and tail-spinner baits, which are the most popular types of spinnerbaits, are perfect for fishing trout, bass, salmon, northern pike, walleye and other big or small fishes. Perfect for…

The anti-slip grip is comfy and skid-resistant. The thumb permits you to wipe sweat away to maintain your palms dry. They’re smooth to take off, even if you have been sweating. They are excessively excellent to alter on your wrist for a tight grip.

In order to help you determine which type of fishing glove will be best for you and your needs, you should come up with a checklist, which has the following items on it to help you narrow down your selection.
Secluded spots around ponds or levees outside of town are good bets. If you’re wandering in the woods looking for a place to fish privately, make sure you’re not tramping onto someone’s private property, or that you’re fishing in a place that doesn’t allow it.
Several factors come into play when entering the realm of kayaks, beginning with your budget and storage. Kayaks retail from $300 to more than $3,000, but used ones can be had for considerably less. As with most purchases, if you’re committed to the activity, it pays to spend a little more and get a better product. If your interests shift or you intend to use the kayak sparingly, one in the lower range may be more appropriate.
