10 Kayak Fishing Tips for Beginners

first_imgIt’s been over two years since this kayak fishing journey began. I’ve learned quite a bit along the way. I decided to list some of kayak fishing tips. This by no means will be an exhaustive list, and I’ll compile a more technical one soon. But if you’re just starting out kayak angling, hopefully some of these will help you out. Kayak fishing is a fantastic, soulful way to spend some time.I started working at Appomattox River Company in May of 2012. That fall I had moved into a marketing-digital role and begun looking for ways to increase our brand awareness. Appomattox River Company already had a good name in the paddle-sports industry, and I wanted to find more people and draw them into the fun. I paddled some canoes as a kid, and I’d paddled a little whitewater, but there were so many long-time canoeists and whitewater paddlers in the company here in Farmville, that I decided to tackle a different scene.I decided to try kayak fishing. I’d fished as a kid, on occasion as a teen, but hadn’t done much in my adult life. So I started casting lines from a used kayak in April of 2013. I got into kayak fishing thinking that it would be a good marketing angle, to pick up some skills, and to relate to that portion of the paddle-sports market. I also thought it wouldn’t hurt to appeal to the larger fishing market. I had no idea that this motivation would quickly turn into an absolute obsession, and that within me lay dormant a passion that exploded with that first cast and that first kayak caught bass.Screen Shot 2015-06-29 at 9.46.11 AMBy June of 2013, the addiction was firmly entrenched. I had caught my first saltwater fish from a kayak while in North Carolina.Kayak Fishing Tips:1) You do not need to buy a top of the line kayak, but you do need to talk to some experienced people about the best kind of kayak for the water you plan to be fishing, combined with your height/weight and paddling ability. I see articles stating that you can start with a $200 kayak. That’s true, for some folks. But I’ve fielded a lot of phone calls from people who bought big box store kayaks that can’t carry their weight. It helps to talk to people who know kayaks, before you buy.2) Don’t bring your most expensive rods on the kayak your first few times on the water. You will probably flip (or turtle) once or twice, better to lose or break cheap rods than to watch your favorite ones float to the bottom of a deep lake. If anyone ever finds my 3 nice Abu Garcia rods at the bottom of Summersville Lake in WV, let me know. I did rescue my daughter’s hat though before turtling. 🙂3) Kayak fishing is distinctly different than fishing from a boat. You must be self-reliant and prepared to handle any situation, on your own. It’s both the beauty and risk associated with the activity. Wear your PFD. There have been a lot of drownings lately due to kayak fisherman going in the drink without flotation. I carry a lot of essential items in my PFD that I need. It’s a tool that I do not fish without. Fishing PFDs have come a long way. These aren’t the 1970’s banana colored, camp lifejackets.4) Speaking of bananas. Don’t show up to the boat launch, on tournament day, or any day, eating a banana. People will yell at you. Seriously, it’s a thing. Google it. I made the mistake once. Never again.5)  Try not to hassle people for fishing spot info. Have a sense of adventure. Read fishing reports, look at Google Earth, scour old forum posts and investigate. You can learn a lot about patterns, good fishing holes, etc from just a wee bit of effort. As I stated before, kayak anglers are pretty self-reliant folks, and most of the good ones put in a lot of hours honing skill and finding good spots. Don’t expect them to just turn around and hand that info over to you if you’re not going to show any initiative. But do your homework and get after it and you’ll quickly be welcomed into a great community of giving people.6) Want to get a great shot of your catch? Get a mount for your camera (Yak Attack or Yak Gear). Attach some fish grips to a T-Reign retractor tether. When you catch that big’un, slap it on the tethered fish grips and let it chill in the water while you get your camera all set up. Press the timer setting and when the camera gets ready to shoot, pull your fish up and it will be fresh for the photo.7) Which brings me to this tip for action cam users. GoPro cameras have many settings, but few buttons. Learn to navigate them quickly and correctly, because if you accidentally hit “Burst” instead of “Time Lapse” you end up with 20 of these shots and none of the full fish. “This was a good 3-4 pounder I swear…”Screen Shot 2015-06-29 at 9.42.54 AM8) If you’re going to be out all day, invest in some sun protection clothing. It’s to difficult to remember to lather up sunscreen throughout the day. With SPF clothing you don’t need to, and you can pretend you’re a kayak fishing ninja. Burn your shins enough, you’ll layer up.9) Hydrate. Remember that kayak fishing all day is exercise, much more so than sitting on a boat. If you go out all day, bring enough water. Nothing disorientates me like a lack of water. It’s hard to focus on figuring out a pattern for catching fish, when your brain is shriveled up like a raisin. Dehydration will make you grumpy and will just compound your frustration if the fish aren’t biting.10) The most important lesson for those of you who come from fishing to kayak fishing is this: A bad day kayak fishing is still a good day kayaking. I struggle sometimes to remember this one. But studies show, exercise makes us happier people. So get out there, paddle and fish. Don’t be scared to put in some work. Some of my most rewarding days involve lots of paddling to find the fish. And when it pays off, I feel like a warrior.last_img read more

Paul Thomas: Genetic attraction – a love that dare not speak its name

first_imgNZ Herald 15 April 2016Family First Comment: So here’s a good commentary by NZ Herald columnist Paul Thomas rejecting people who argue for Genetic Sexual Attraction which is a poncy term for Incest. But here’s the interesting aspect – the same arguments rejecting incest could also be the basis of arguing against ‘gender’ ideology, same-sex marriage and polygamy. “The evidence that there’s such a thing as GSA is pretty thin…”“This is both self-diagnosis, hardly the most reliable scientific methodology, and self-serving…”“…since when did the scientific community let public opinion influence its areas of research?“…it seems a little reckless to push a “my DNA made me do it” line, even in unusual cases.”Does this make Paul Thomas an ‘incestophobe’?? …..Which brings us to incest or, as we now have to call it in certain cases, Genetic Sexual Attraction (GSA). GSA is the phenomenon of close relatives who meet for the first time as adults and can’t keep their hands off each other. As in Kim West (51) and her son Ben Ford (32) who have just unapologetically outed themselves as a couple. Briton West got pregnant at 19 while studying in California. She put her son up for adoption; 30 years passed. A couple of years ago Ford tracked her down and it was lust at first sight. Three days after they had sex for the first time, Ford told his wife he was leaving her for his mother. According to Charlotte Gill, the writer of a Daily Telegraph article that also appeared in the Herald, GSA is real, more widespread than we think and we’d better get used to it.Call me sceptical. That’s partly personal experience: my family emigrated from the UK when I was two and the best part of three decades elapsed before I met any aunts, uncles or cousins. When I did so, GSA was conspicuous by its absence. Without ever having discussed it with my sisters – for some reason the subject just never came up – I’m pretty sure the same goes for them. The evidence that there’s such a thing as GSA is pretty thin. The term was coined in the 1980s by American Barbara Gonyo who went weak at the knees when she was reunited with the son she’d given up for adoption. This is both self-diagnosis, hardly the most reliable scientific methodology, and self-serving. (Ford told a magazine, “This is not incest, it’s GSA.” Understandably: in Michigan, where he and his mother are shacked up, plain old incest is a crime punishable by life imprisonment.) Gill refers to a single study but glibly skates over the lack of scientific evidence: “There’s not a great deal of research into the area because who wants a PhD in incest?” How about anyone wanting to persuade us that incest has genetic origins?Besides, since when did the scientific community let public opinion influence its areas of research? Each year at Harvard University a committee including Nobel laureates hands out the “Ig Nobels” to scientists engaged in spectacularly frivolous or dubious research. Past winners include a team that explored the viability of a “gay bomb” that would cause enemy troops to become sexually attracted to each other. Gill insists that “those who succumb to GSA are not sickos or freaks but victims who desperately need help and understanding. Their feelings are not controllable.” This characterisation sits uneasily alongside the presentation of West and Ford’s story and their crowing about “incredible and mind-blowing sex”.And given the sordid, coercive and traumatising nature of most incest, it seems a little reckless to push a “my DNA made me do it” line, even in unusual cases.http://www.nzherald.co.nz/lifestyle/news/article.cfm?c_id=6&objectid=11622710last_img read more
