How To Get Into Kayak Fishing Feat. Josh Thomas

Josh Thomas of Vibe Kayaks lives by the motto; “getting more of out there and less of in here,” and he joins me today to talk about one way of “getting more of out there” which is kayak fishing. I asked Josh what his quick little introduction to kayak fishing would be and he gave me some great pointers on how to get into kayak fishing and what factors to consider. When looking into kayak fishing you need to decide what you are going to use the kayak for, there are many different kinds of boats, and similarly, many different kinds of kayaks. What kind of water are you going to be fishing in? What kind of fish are you fishing for? How do you want to rig your kayak? Do you want to be standing and stable or paddling and quick?

How To Chum For Sharks

How To Chum For Sharks

Fishing for sharks can be like fishing for any other kind of fish, it can be easy if you know what to do, but at first glance it might not be as easy as you’d expect. Sharks have an incredible sense of smell that means if you use fresh chum you can attract a lot of them. I highly recommend fresh chum for sharks because sharks aren’t like vultures. They might eat something that has been dead for a while but they are far more likely to be attracted to fresh meat.

How To Properly Handle A Fish

How To Properly Handle A Fish

Catch and Release has been a great thing for conservation, few would argue that.  However, some people mishandle fish before release which could be killing them and cancelling out all good intentions of release.  A listener asked if I would do this show on how to properly handle fish intended for release.  I was a little hesitant at the time because each fish that we fish for requires a slightly different technique.  I wasn’t sure if I could effectively communicate, through audio only, the proper way to handle fish.  I gave it a whirl anyway and hope it is helpful, if you want to know more please email me and I would be happy to provide any details that were missed in the podcast.

How to Set Up Your Anchor For Any Type Of Boat

How to Set Up Your Anchor For Any Type Of Boat

On the How 2 Tuesday I spoke about how to get your anchor set up for pretty much any boat you fish out of. Personally, I fish out of 3 boats - I fish out of a 17-Yellowfin Skiff, 24-Bay-Boat and the 36-Yellowfin-Offshore. The 3 boats, obviously, have different anchoring requirements, different types of bottom, different lengths of line, different amounts of chain and even different types of anchors… The one thing that hold true with any of these is that when I put my anchor down I want it to hold, I don’t want it to slip. When I put my anchor down I also want to be able to get off of the anchor and go chase down a fish.
