Designing a Fishing Lanyard

By Anthony Jones

Novice or not, we all know that simply casting the lines in the water will not yield any fish. From a perspective fishing might seem that it is one of the easiest things to do. All you have to do is sit with your line in the water from morning till evening and at the end of the day you can go home with a bucket load of fish. It is such a misconception. It is harder than we give it credit for. There are a lot of things associated with it - the fishing tackles, locations, weather, tides etc which together makes it all happen. Saltwater fishing no doubt sounds intimidating for a beginner but it is one of the best experiences for an angler.

To begin with one has to become familiar with the equipments. Casting, baiting, knot tying processes can be practiced without even setting a foot on a boat. Familiarizing with it will make saltwater fishing more pleasurable an activity.

If you are an angler, you need to be practicing first alongside more experienced anglers. You can also take help from the fishing guides. These are the people who can help you perfect your saltwater skills. Fishing party, head boats, or pier fishing are just perfect places to pick up some basic skills.

Picking the right spot is important and that has to be a place where fish are biting. It is a rule of thumb to find places where the fish are likely to feed. So you need to choose your tackles accordingly. Fishing reports come in handy in this regard. It is best to research the area before you are out in the water. You will also come to know the specific species of fish in that particular area. If you have chosen saltwater fishing, you have to be patient. You have to stay at the same place and wait patiently, at least trying with two different lures or baits.

Tackle and line One of the most important piece of tackle when fishing for Pike is a wire trace attached to the main line, Pike can very easily bite through mono or braid lines with there incredibly sharp teeth. The fishing hooks that should be used for Pike are the Treble hooks.

These fishing hooks allow the angler to attach large deadbaits onto their hook, while leaving one or two hooks out to hook the Pike when it takes the bait. Most tackle shops now sell ready made wire traces with two Treble fishing hooks attached. The main line used for catching Pike should be no less than 14lb; the rod should be a specimen rod with a 2.5 - 3.5 test curve.

With all these tips on fishing, you can be sure to have only good fishing days, everyday. Tight lines!
