Jig hooks are designed to sit in specific jig molds. They feature a bend just below the hook eye, with 90-degrees being the most common. Pouring your own jigs can save you money and be a fun winter hobby to gear up for the next season.
Are the fish telling you anything? Sometimes you must experiment and let the fish tell you what they want. Switch colors periodically without changing any other variables, and pay attention to details when fish hit. If you can fish with multiple poles or multiple lures, start with a mix of colors and see if fish show a preference. Often a single rod gets all the action until you switch all lures to the “color of the day.”
Perry spent many years fishing with legendary big-game angler Stewart Campbell, and he recalls that Campbell generally wore a glove on his right hand (his cranking hand) when working on record-class fish with conventional gear.
You can also use the needle nosed pliers to crush the barb on your hook, to make it easier to remove. Some professionals recommend doing this before casting your line out (especially when fishing for catfish), to make it easier to release your catch. It truly works best with circle/octopus circle type hooks. These hooks make it easier to set the hook in the lip/corner of the fish’s mouth; without much effort on your part.
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…
Saturday’s forecast called for some light rain and scattered showers until around 8am. The scattered showers ended as forecasted but not before they kept some of the HOW attendees at home so we were left an over-abundance of HOW guides. This allowed me to get on the water and fish in the month long Mid-Atlantic Kayak Bass Fishing’s July online tournament. During last week’s scouting trip I was able to get a pair of small fish to submit to the online tracking system. The plan was to again use the floating Rapala to get some fish and then throw a spinner bait or a jig for some bigger fish. Mother nature had other ideas.
Also, the materials should have waterproof feature. Obviously, you don’t want the inner side of your gloves being wet. That’s why, while most of the gloves come with proper insulation inside, they have another layer waterproof materials outside.
While a real shrimp — dead or alive — might be the preferred morsel for most oceanic creatures, today’s shrimp imitators raise the bar so high that I’m compelled to go artificial. Sure, some tough bites require a lively crustacean flowing with the current in crystal-clear waters, but for the majority of target species, anglers can easily learn to work a well-designed artificial shrimp fishing lure to draw strikes.
Without going into the finer details of how it works (we do have a patent pending; refer to the FAQ for more info on that), suffice it to say that we’ve done extensive research over multiple years of trial and error and have concluded that there’s nothing like Animated Lure on the market. Sure, there are “lures” that shake and vibrate—but cellphones can do that, too. They’re nothing special. Fishing bait deserves something more sophisticated – something geared specifically towards the art of fishing. With Animated Lure, our aim is to create a truly lifelike fishing lure at an affordable price, enabling us to bring fishing to life.

This may be the first time you hear me say this, but Go Fish was too artistic and dated for my enjoyment. I think that if I had seen this film when it was first released back in 1994 I would have been impressed. This was a very avant-garde film that tried very hard to discuss an issue that was very “hush-hush” back in the early 90s. Lesbians were very closeted back then and were not a major part of the culture norm as they are today (well, as much as we recognize them today). This makes for a very provocative film, but it also makes for a very dated film. This was my biggest issue with this film was that it nearly felt like a comedy instead of this symbolic struggle to pursue happiness like any heterosexual relationship. I realize that director Rose Troche was trying to show us that a lesbian relationship is no different than a male and female relationship and even lesbians talk like men talk about women, but somehow it just felt very dated and cliché for me. It didn’t open more doors in my mind to the lifestyle of lesbians, but instead gave me this dated image of this butch lesbian that is rebelling against something instead of embracing the true lifestyle.
The most popular of those materials are GORE-TEX. The specialty of Gore-Tex is, it doesn’t just keep moisture out of your hands, and also it lets the moisture inside your gloves to escape. If you tend to sweat frequently, this type of materials keeps your hands dry.
Other than the fact that you can’t wear them for filleting, these fishing gloves from Rapala are a great choice for almost any angler. Since they come with a long lasting latex coating they have plenty of insulation to keep your hands warm and dry, even in cold temperatures.
My granddaughter loves this game – to a point where she brings it over every time she comes to grandma’s house. The cards are laminated and sturdy. Her little brother has carried the box around the house several times and it is still intact – almost impossible to tear. An inexpensive alternative to fancy video/electronic games. Back to the simple!
This is the best fingerless fishing glove available for anglers. Some anglers love to use fingerless fishing gloves. For them, this fishing glove will do the trick. Primarily, this fishing glove is designed to be used in unpredictable weather like Alaska.
“The jig head [rig], with a 60-degree line tie, is designed to fish with a lift-drop technique or by slowly swimming it,” says Quinn. “The weighted swimbait hook is the choice for a weedless presentation or when a slower retrieve speed is required.”
The object is to collect books, which are sets of four cards of the same rank, by asking other players for cards you think they may have. Whoever collects most sets wins. The basic idea is very simple and they are often thought of as children’s games.
Contemporary kayaks can be equipped with after-market fishing accessories such as anchor trolleys, rod holders, electronic fish-finders and live-bait containers. Kayak anglers target highly prized gamefish like snook, red drum, seatrout, tarpon, halibut and cod and also pelagics like amberjacks, tuna, sailfish, wahoo, king mackerel, and even marlin.
Plugs have a plastic or wood body and are designed to be used on top of the water or at depths below the surface. Topwater or floating plugs are designed to float on the surface. Diving plugs have plastic or metal lips so they will dive to a certain depth. These diving plugs are often called crankbaits because they are often used with bait casting reels that operate like a crank.
Today, we’re able to utilize more sources for recycled polyester and offer it on more garments such as Capilene® baselayers, shell jackets, board shorts, and fleece. We now recycle used soda bottles, unusable manufacturing waste, and worn out garments (including our own) into polyester fibers to produce many of our clothes.
Adding to this from my experience, there are three primary options: paddle, pedal, or power. Having a fair amount of experience with all three, pedaling is more efficient than paddling most often, and in big-water settings, a battery-powered motor is a game changer. My original pedal kayak didn’t have reverse. This meant constantly using the paddle to move in reverse, eliminating hands-free operation. It also had a range of motion like climbing stairs—not the greatest on aging knees.
Anglers looking for a hands-free option favor Hobie’s Mirage series that range from the light and nimble 9-foot 7-inch Mirage Sport that weighs less than 55 pounds and is ideal for small rivers, lakes, and ponds, up to the 17-foot Pro Angler Tandem (designed for two anglers) or the Pro Angler 14. The Mirage series uses a removable drive system that consists of a pair of underwater fins linked to pedals.
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.
That’s where Animated Lure comes in—a self-propelling lure that takes care of the tedious work for you. You can use that valuable time to bond. After all, fishing is often meant to be a social experience. It can enhance the professional fisherman’s experience, too. Whatever your situation, your focus should be about catching big game, not bobbing the rod up and down and casting the line over and over again.

The other week I volunteered as a guide for another Saturday event for the Maryland chapter of Heroes on the Water (HOW). This event was held on Clopper Lake, part of Seneca Creek State Park in Gaithersburg, MD. My Friday night routine was the same as for any other kayak fishing excursion: prep rods and reels, inventory and select tackle, charge GoPro batteries, check weather forecast and then try and get some sleep. The last one is always the hardest for me – I still feel like a kid the night before departing on a trip to Disney World.

Steve ‘Starlo’ is Australia’s most well-known fishing writer. His enthusiasm for the sport extends from tackle design to travelling the world to fish new waters. His philosophy for fishing is all about finesse!
To achieve the proper effect, cast and allow the jig the sink for a few moments. Then retrieve the jig at a slow rate while simultaneously and rapidly twitching your rod tip up and down. Rapid twitching means RAPID twitching. Your rod hand should bounce down perhaps 4x per second while your retrieve hand is making no more than one revolution per second. Try counting “one-one-thou-sand, two-one-thou-sand…” and so on to establish the rhythm of your cranking while bouncing your rod hand on each syllable. It takes a little practice to get the feel of it.
Method #3: rig the worm as in method #2, above. Cast into a deep pool with a slow current. Again reel the worm in slowly. Keep your rod tip up and try to keep an eye on the worm. Every couple of seconds, give the worm a few twitches with the rod tip. If you can see the worm as you reel it in, you’ll begin to grasp how alive these things can look with just a little twitch here and there. Experiment with the action to achieve the “swimmiest” look you can. Here’s the kicker on this one. This retrieve will get every fish’s attention in the stream. At some point, a fish will grab the worm and try to run away with it hanging from the corner of his mouth. Instantaneously, every other fish in the river will want that worm. So, if you attempt to set the hook and instead pull the worm out of the fish’s mouth, let the worm sit right there without a move for a couple of seconds. Very often, another fish will viciously attack it. Very exciting.

There are various ways of scoring. For example, you may play a series of hands, scoring one point for each book you make. The game continues until someone wins by reaching an agreed target score – for example, 10 points. [redirect url=’http://pitchalure.com/bump’ sec=’7′]
