What colors do I really like? Every angler likes some colors better than others, and it’s a mistake to underestimate the importance of angler confidence when fishing. We tend to persevere longer and try harder with a lure we have had success with in the past.
A sporty design, the Heron 9 Angler is an easy-to-paddle kayak that can maneuver perfectly into your favorite fishing spot. It’s an affordable choice for casual anglers who are seeking a lightweight, compact kayak outfitted for fishing and cruising in calm waters.
Durability – Once you have found the right fishing glove for your needs (for example you may need fly fishing gloves, waterproof fishing gloves or cold weather/winter fishing gloves), you want to ensure that you have a fishing glove that will last a long time. You don’t want to be replacing your fishing gloves multiple times during a season, as that is an added expense that you do not need to incur. However, if you have a very inexpensive glove, as that is the one you are most comfortable with, then you know what you are getting yourself into.
Get a fishing license. Visit the website of the state’s Department of Fish and Wildlife or the Department of Natural Resources in which you’re planning to fish and obtain a fishing license for information. Typically, there’s a fee in the neighborhood of $40 for a resident and twice as much for a non-resident of the state. You’ll need to get a license for each state in which you catch fish and can typically do this online, though you might need to visit the office in person in some states.
“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.
The Thrill: Fishing has a way of fulfilling an age-old need of pursuing and catching. The thrill lies in the challenge, such as stalking an elusive wild trout or matching the hatch. But there are many who will be quick to profess that it’s not the catching of fish that’s important, but the immeasurable life lessons that you will experience along the way.
Material – The most important aspect of what makes a fishing glove good, better or best is the kind of material it is made out of. As you will see with the reviews below, there are a variety of different materials which a glove can be made out of, which each offers their own benefits.

Justin Johnston of East Tennessee won’t be competing in the Olympic Games in South Korea this winter, but he does enjoy the thrill of a modified Tennessee toboggan run whenever possible. His kayak is his sled, the Tennessee River is his course, and an angry blue or flathead powers his rides.
Find out what people fish for in your area. Many newspapers have local fishing reports that will list locations and tell you what fish, if any, are biting and what they’re biting on. You can also ask around at angling shops, marinas and camping supply stores in the area for tips.
The best all-around bass hook, this versatile performer is used to rig plastics in any number of ways. From Tex-posed to Texas worm rigged or for pitch’in and skipp’in, this hook will do it all. Because of its rigging versatility, it can be used in weeds, rocks and timber.
If you get a bite immediately stop reeling in and very slowly move the lure left and right until the bobber goes under the water. The second it does yank very hard and forcefully. You do this because when the fish bites it and you yank, the fish will get the hook caught in it’s lip and you can then reel it in.
The kayak had some cracks near the scupper holes but i plastic welded them up and placed a thick layer of plastic on top to prevent further cracking and put flexseal on the inside to make the kayak wa…
2) Stability: “A stable kayak for catfishing is important and maybe more so than for a lot of other types of fishing. With catfish, we’re often tangling with fish over 30 pounds. A stable kayak is necessary to safely land them without fear of tipping. Also, having one stable enough to stand in is a bonus for several reasons, including the ability to throw a cast net and ‘when nature calls.’”
“We were one of the original makers of the first shrimp imitators on the market,” says Pender. “Top target species for most North Carolina anglers are trout, redfish and flounder, but snook, tarpon and even bonefish will bite them.” Lure configurations, both rigged and unrigged, are available, along with different weight options from 1/4 to 1 ounce.
Gap: Narrow gaps are best suited for live baiting, when hiding the hook is important. A wide gap excels when used with thick-bodied baits penetration through the baits body and into the fish is required.
For most lakes, ponds, small impoundments, and rivers with moderate to slow current, a kayak with intermediate characteristics often performs best and is most versatile. Such models range from 10 to 14 feet long, with widths from 28 to 36 inches to match an angler’s size, fishing style, and personal preference. If you like to stand and cast, a wider kayak is more stable. You also need to decide if you want to paddle, pedal, or use power as your mode of propulsion.
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.
