Has anyone taught a woman to fish? I took my girlfriend out to the Clinch River today and had kind of a bitch of a time getting her to cast properly until I showed her how to swing a jig. She hooked a little 1.5lb largemouth on her sixth cast, but it spat the hook before she could pull it on shore. Overall she did better than expected and wants to go again!

It was a Walmart special Abu Garcia Blackmax baitcast combo with a 7/8oz bitsyflip and watermelon trailer.

Reporting from Great Sacandaga lake in the Adirondacks.

Depends on if you sight fish. They help seeing fish. If the water is so muddy you can't see/deep water then they don't matter for fish seeing. You should wear them either way to protect your eyes. Unpolarized are really bad for your eyes.

Introduction to Mediterranean saltwater float fishing aka inglese.
What is inglese; born during the 90s in Florence Italy inglese is essentially match float fishing in saltwater, when Italybros started using the well and tested "English" style lake float fishing in salt water. It is a very chill (you do everything siting down) yet quite technical and if done correctly very rewarding.
Equipment;
A match fishing rod 4.20 mtrs long is the established all rounder with CW 25-30grms max
A match fishing reel 1000-2500 max (eg.shimano Catana) they come with shallow and short spools)
Mono for your reel a good begginers diameter is 0.20 to 0.18 mm diameter 200mtrs are more than enough
Fluorocarbon 0.16 to 0.14 for the leader
10-16 size hooks for match fishing

Cont
>>
>>1391718
An assortment of floats 2-8gr (they come into two main variations the stick; a straight waggler and the teardrop made of usualy of either plastic or balsa wood) when picking them out you will notice a plus number next to their weight (eg.4+X) where X is the weight needed to equalise the float. +2 is preferred to make proper castable rig.
A box of assorted fishing buckshot of various weights (small weights made of soft tin that we attach underneath the float to make it both equalised and castable)
Small sized snap-swivels to connect the float to your line
A 8 to 15grms weight to measure the depth of your fishing spot (important)
Bait(live works best)
A bait catapult (better than your gf)
The usual shit like a pair of pliers , a landing net etc

Stoppers for your float either a silicone tube or a piece of dacron or even dental floss
The tecnique
We can fish almost anywhere from rocks at a jetty or a pier etc, (ofc not in extreme wind or heavy waves) so long as we can see our float.
First thing to do when we arrive is measure the depth; using a snap swivel we attach the float on our main line(moving freely) and tie our leader with a small weight at the end. We attach a stopper above the float on our main line at roughly the depth we believe the place we want to fish has and we cast.
If we can't see the float at all it means we need to move the stopper higher if we see the float but it is laying horizontally it means it is swallow and we need to move it lower on our line. We keep on casting and adjusting until we can see only the red tip of the float among the waterline.
Congratulations we now know the exact depth and thus we can adjust the float at the exact height from the seafloor we wish to fish(depends on the fish we are targeting from rockfish at the bottom to mid and top water dwelers)

>>1391722
We attach our hook and start equalising the float by adding buckshot to the line, at first we will load our line with roughly the 2/3rds to 3/4ths of the weight needed to equalise as floating is effected by waves and wind (eg. for a 6+2 float where 2 are the grms needed to equalise we load the line with roughly 1.5 to 1.8grms). Cast a few times and add or subtract accordingly so that you can only see the tip of the float out of the water.
Put some bait on your hook and cast. You can now sit down(integral part of the experience) point the rod downwards to avoid the wind interference and just keep an eye on your float. When you see unusual movement (not just the tip disappearing underwater but also moving slightly left or right of your cast point) pull that sucker in.

Finally to be even more productive as the sea is not lake we need to put some ground bait in the water so that the fish will come to us.
The best bait to use is small maggots, fly larvae and or ready made ground bait. With your catapult target your float and start flinging those jucy maggot directly on top of your float. Careful not to go over the top as we want to entice the fish to hit your hook, not to feed them. Start with quite a lot before your first cast and thereafter with just a few maggots with every cast.
For more in depth analysis on rigs, depth finding and ground baiting just google the freshwater variant as most of it is the same with the size being the biggest difference. Also don't pump that rod like there is no tomorrow as the line diameters and your reel are made for finese and not a caveman. Fight the fish with really loose breaks and tire it.
Finally sorry about my English it is obviously not my forte.

I guess it depends on the sunglasses you buy, as you can buy sunglasses that arent polarized but still block the UV rays. If you happen to get a pair of non polarized sunglasses that don't your pupils will dialate letting in more UV rays than if you weren't wearing. But if you buy polarized you know they're going to offer the best UV protection.

>>1392080
Well, sure. But just saying that everything not polarized is shit is nonsense. I have not seen (though I'm sure they exist) a set of sunglasses made by a legitimate business (as in not Chinese knockoffs sold in a shady market) which do not label themselves as blocking 100% UV -- as required by law.

It changes the way a person perceives light, looking through tinted auto glass causes rainbows, a lot of displays these days rely on polarization filters. The list goes on and on.

As long as there is certainty that the lens blocks 100% UV, broad spectrum, there is no worry. A neutrally tinted glass is just a NDF over your eyes. It does not change other aspects of perception.

I personally cannot stand polarized glasses in many scenarios, but do happily wear them fishing.

I dunno man you listed two reasons that really aren't too big of a deal to me. I don't see rainbows through my windows and they're super dark, but I do see them when looking at other peoples Windows.

But at the end of the day I agree with you. Just make sure your sunglasses actually protect your eyes and wear what you want.

I've never used a graphite rod before and I know you have to be careful of the tip, bending too much. The rod has a max cast weight of 150g. Is casting any different with a graphite rod? Do I need to be extra careful or will anything under 150g be fine?
>>
>>1392770
Bruh if you don’t buy some dirt cheap rod with chinesium graphite you won’t break your tips off the cast if you cast within the lure weight rating. Those rating are typically slightly underrated the max weight as well. The only way you can break the tip ( also the most common causes of tip breaking) is high sticking or slamming a door or something on your tip.

UV = wavelength != polarisation. They are two completely different properties.
Your point is correct though. With two sunglasses with no edge/bandstop filters at all and one being the polarised kind the polarised glasses will still block the UV rays with the wrong polarisation whereas the non-polarised will let every polarisation trough.
(right here and now I can't remember whether light reflected off water is generally s- or p-polarised)

I've been using a sabiki rig in freshwater. Everything is fairly shallow here so I let the weight hit the bottom, like an anchor, and sorta jig the lures around and side to side. Then reel in a bit and repeat. Though, this is more for panfish and bait fish than anything, but sometimes I get a black bass or two.

My idea is to take a barrel swivel (without the clip) and press a split shot on one of the swivel's eyelets. That will be the dropshot weight. You can then just do the same in this video with flies.

It'll Allow me to make a more lightweight rig. Ill post some time in the future how it works out for me.

The biggest problem I find is keeping it untangled. Then anything you wrap it around can imprint that shape onto the monofilament and everything gets weird. Though, with my rig the places where the hooks attach have longer sections so they can dance around further away from the main line.

If you have the lead split shots and a barrel swivel, you can just make a wooden form for it and cast a dropshot onto the clip of the barrel swivel. It's like 2-3 mins work if you have a blow torch, old spoon to heat the lead in, and something to make a dent in some wood. Even a butane jet lighter will melt the lead. It is a good use for old split shots that have fallen apart or deformed from too much use; especially if you find them around fishing spots.

Looks kinda gaudy but if it's a quality product than who am I to judge. I've always been a sucker for full sized round baitcasters over the low profile ones.

low profile is generally inshore or freshwater though. you'll get some weird looks if you do either with a conventional reel

Seriously thinking about going fishing over the weekend but a bit on edge due to anxiety.
Been a few months since I went fishing the summer heat was not fun and the monsoon that would come out of no where, their is no place to hide from the lighting, no place to shit or piss.
Need to find someone to fish with.

Some fish are fine to put on the ground. Redfish, for example. Also, sometimes you have to to take the hook, lure out properly.

Pike arnt that hardy, their slime layer is more important than to say a bass or walleye. People think that because they revive a fish in the water and it swims away that it’s going to be fine and they did no harm to it. Thing is, when you remove that slime layer, the infection they sometimes get as a result doesn’t start immediately so you’d have no clue if you fucked it or not. As for people saying “well how do I unhook it then” gee idk, maybe learn how to properly unhook a fish? Ignorance is no excuse for damaging fish you have no intention of harvesting and makes you look both retarded and like an asshole. If you’re really that uncordinated and can’t manage to remove a treble hook from a pikes mouth then I’d recommend buying some boots and a net so you can let the fish lay in the water inside the net while you unhook it. Jaw spreaders come in handy too when targeting pike for longer periods.

Anyone who defends or practices poor handling of fish they arnt going to eat are on the same level as niggers and should be treated as such. Remember that

I'm getting ready to head to the lake see if I can get a few Bass before this year is up.
I can't figure out how to spool my reel I watched videos but I still just don't get it, They talking about having to flip the line spool so it goes on the same way it goes on the reel idk wtf they mean, sucks being this autistic gotta find someone local that can show me how the line on the spool needs to face when putting new line on a reel, I swear I'm doing it wrong.
>>
>>1394150
You know how to cast a spinning reel right? You know how when you flip over that wire thing before you let go of your line to make a cast? Flip that wire thing up like you were going to take a cast, that’s the position you want it in when you tie the line to the spool. I usually just do 2 simple overhand knots and have never had an issue. After that flip the bail (wire thing) back down like normal and start reeling in your line. Make sure to keep some tension on the line while you spool it though. Also if your reel has a little switch that allowed the spool to spin either way, make sure it’s fliped to the side that only allows it to spin one direction.
>>
>>1394141
Depends on where you go, but most places (Cabelas, Bass Pro, Dicks, Big 5, Academy) dont charge for anything other than the line unless they're spooling line you bring in or blister pack line.
>>
>>1391233
Was going to say this>>1391311.

Spinning reels are much easier to learn with and harder to fuck up your casts. I fuck up with my baitcaster all the time and I know plenty of more experienced fishermen than me who still fuck up and get shitty bird's nests.

Starting with a baitcaster might put someone off until they've built up a little more patience for the sport.

If you're trying to get someone into fishing I recommend just going to a local lake barge or taking them to a small pond, river, or creek and using live bait such as worms or minnows(I've found canned corn also works very well).

You are almost guaranteed to catch something and have fun, which will make them willing to have a little more patience the next time because they will want to catch those fucking big honkers.

I'm pretty sad because the only fish I caught this Saturday ended up dying because I fucked up and set the hook into gut hate watching stuff die, some people were there and asked if I was gonna keep it said no so he asked if he can have it gave it to a kid, was a young Bass which is the real shame..
Fucking sun burnt to was a shit day at the lake. Bass just didn't want rubber worms, did a Texas rig used a zoom super worm wasn't any action but 1 fish need to figure out what the bass will hit in brown murky water
Something that won't get lost in thick Lily pads, I tried using a Whopper Popper fucking thing likely scares the fuck out of the fish when it hits the water and zipping it sounds to loud I'm pretty sure the reason I don't get many hook ups is because these Bass spook easy when the lure or whatever hits the water.

Think SSS simple small and slow. A little spoon (panfish sized), little tiny jigs, small minnows or live grubs twitched on the bottom. If water temps are still in the 40s, ya want to try shallow structure. Once it gets colder than 39 ya gotta go deep (10-18 feet)

On pike I cut out their gills, more reliable than trying to stab the brain and almost as fast.

I'm with you on suffering. Pike have basically always been my favorite fish to eat but I didn't keep any for years when fishing with my grandfather because he filleted them alive and didn't kill them. They'd be trying to breath in the trash with all five filets out of them.

I wish he had been willing to bleed the first, the man was a wizard at cleaning them without y-bones, but I never learned his methods because I couldn't stand to watch them suffer.

Its cheap for a reason. Mine was 115 dollars and only lasted for most of a summer. I built a deck for it out if plywood and used a marine deep cycle battery and outboard for trolling the river and charging my speaker/keeping mini fridge cold.

You could also consider a pulley rig with a giod size dead/live bait, or if you need extra distance or are fishing in rough weather you could even go for a slide bait if you're keen.
Ann's suggestion of bottom bouncing with something like a paternoster could cover a lot of ground and have good results, you should use a teardrop sinker to try avoid snagging weeds or rocks though.
>>1395579
Tell me about it. Sea fishing here has been garbage for a long while here, but I presume it's because of sand dredging and most of the fish subsequently being driven out to sea by the resulting water quality issues.

brech nah... not for socal jetties. that method sometime work on out going rip tides off a point here. where trolleys and pulleys get used for bonito and pelagic off piers-n-points here. one needs to feel the subtle hali bump/bump. big ones will inhale a bait and just feel heavy on the line but smaller butts will tap then inhale. with passive rigs you miss that bump they feel the hook and spit it out. a limber tip on your rod helps to feel and absorb that bump/bump before you gut hook a short with the trap rig.

>gets a scale for the secret santa

>>1395744
Shame pulleys don't work too well where you're from, they do well for me for most bigger fish but I use circle hooks more than octo or suicides.
They're more forgiving of touchy fish if you use a very long pulley, then it acts a bit more like a bolt rig equivalent, hooking them when they run.

I was reading up on this, and at least bass don’t really see colors like us. They see contrast and movement. Red can always be blood, and certain colors travel through water better than others. So when going for bass, it doesn’t have to have the same color as a shad, just draw attention with the movement.

You know I heard some claiming that Bass can't see red which is why people claim that the jig heads are red, which now appears to be going white...

There’s no way that’s true with the amount of red crawdad baits. But I believe red is one of the colors that doesn’t travel real far through water, especially when it’s dark. I think the dark blues and purples might be one of those visible ones at depths.

There are a few things in the Imgur about it.

If you're in Michigan get a good pair of waders and fish the Ausable river in Grayling. There's a part called the holy water and it's beautiful. Reminds you how much God loves his creations.

If you're worried about branches and snags try the muskegon river in newaygo Michigan. There's a hotel there that's 40 bucks a night so crashing there and fishing before sunrise is prime.

Finally there's peremarquet river. I recommend lodging at red moose lodge. There's a guy there who's a guide and will give out tips to guests. Plus the lodge is comfy af and cheap.

I’ve been using a similar set up and I’ve defaulted to it at this point. I’ve gotten plenty of bass with it, not necessarily massive ones but every once in awhile I get a big one.

Red stops being "red" at just a few feet deep. Great for things like spinnerbaits, casting spoons, and crawdad lures that are generally fished shallow for warm weather bass, kinda shit for anything in mid-waters, pure shit for anything deep.
>>
>>1391563
you can make it work, most casts are under 40 feet, im just curious what weight it is. if its a 2 weight you're going to be wishing you had a bigger rod constantly. if it's a 3, 4, or 5 weight you will do fine catching bluegill and small bass, perfect for a beginner. ideally i'd say a 4 for a bluegill rod.
>>1396793
30 pound braid. throw frogs, black/blue jigs, and anything that moves a lot of water.

MOST IMPORTANTLY
>spend time practicing casting
>spend time on the water
if your question is much more literal, get a 4, 5. or 6 weight, some foam dry flies, small streamers, and soft hackles. fish for bluegill and bass, worst case scenario it's casting practice. don't worry about catching fish, worry about being in control of your cast and putting your fly where you want it. once your fly is going where you need it to go and doing what you want it to do you just have to figure out what the fish like, and when they like it. take notes, describe the weather, water temprature, location, fly, and presentation. write it all and then read it when you get home. you now have a pattern for what to do (for example) in 55 degree water just after a cold front/rain and dirty water.
>>
>>1396996
Depends on the water clarity though. Clear water will show reds farther than dirty, but yeah. Red is a "subtle" color at depth.

>>1397484
yeh, its kinda like an overhand knot, someone at the shop I used to work at did them on the filler spools so that the line wouldn't be dangling off the spool.

Ahh, I always tape the thing or rubber band or you can cut a tiny slit in the side and stick the end of the line in the slit to keep it put.

Hopefully make it out on the lake this weekend, (17th) Temperature is starting to drop, I'm broke until next month, but I think I'm gonna buy some swimbaits like I said I'm pretty sure that every time I make a cast, with a 3/0 hook, a 1 1/16 bullet weight and my zoom worm that I'm spooking the Bass when it hits the water.
Take in mind I'm fishing from the bank in some what thick lily pads, I think smaller Bass are breaking the water and that's the reason I think I'm not getting any hits when I cast into the area of the break in the water.
You can see them breaking water a lot but never have any luck caught one Bass last weekend ended up gut hooking it was maybe 1lb Bass, didn't have a stringer to put the fish on because I don't wanna keep them.
>>
>>1396801
Don't listen to this dumb nigger but for the water you are fishing in he's right. Brown water with vegetation you can use pretty much anything, including straight braid.
In clearer water bass are definitely line shy and you don't want to do this. Fishing in gin-clear water I'll use 8-10 pound flouro.
>>
>>1397885
Bass are dumb idiot faggot fish they don’t care what the fuck it is if it’s moving in the water they will bite it
>>
>>1397869
Are you sure they're bass? Most of the time you won't see a bass do that unless they're chasing bait. Carp will do it for no damn reason though.

Agreed. I use braid on a couple rods to water, and flipping into lillies and thick shit. And I use fluro on all other rods. Have used the same jig same day same spots and had more sucess with flurocarbon. All fish can be line shy, if your worried about it use flurocarbon.

It's literally worse than chinkshit from aliexpress or amazon.
>>
>>1397939
What's the /out/ brands for mono, braid, and fluoro then?
>>
>>1397960
Power Pro and 832 are kings of the braid, with KastKing being a decent poorfag option. Seaguar Red Label is pretty much the only fluoro worth using. There's a few options for copoly, I happen to like P-line (although it does take a set earlier than some other options, it's cheap enough to respool every few months).

Mono is kind of its own animal, with different lines doing different things well. Sufix Siege is a good all-around bass line due to being abrasion resistant as hell, but is kinda stiff. Sufix Elite is a good general purpose line equally at home on spinning or casting reels. Trilene XL is still the king of light lines (6lb and down) and small reels (2500 and under).
>>
>>1397901
Green sunfish and warmouth are two of my favorite species for exactly that reason. God bless them. I had a warmouth hit a ribbon tail worm as long as it was and it managed to get the big worm hook in its mouth somehow.
>>
>>1397966
I like p lines flouro, but red label is hard to beat for the price.

What would be a good color lure for fishing bass in stained brown water?
Or what would a few ways to fish swim bait? Been doing a Texas rig cast it out wait a few then do a pop pop then stop and repeat till the lure is back and recast again.
By the way I use them zoom mag 7 inch worms I really think that the Bass don't want the 5 inch worms..
>>
>>1398039
For some reason I always do real well with chartruese or white when I’m fishing that water with good visibility but stained brown.

And the mag worm... there’s a time and a place for each. If the fish are being lazy, sometimes the big bass will only go for a little finesse worm.

Flourocarbon is a pain in the ass to use as main line. It’s best used as a leader, but not really needed for bass in most situations.

Depending on the situation, 6lb-10lb mono or 10lb-20lb braid would be better. If you grab some 8lb Trilene, you will see what a difference it makes.

My preference is Suffix or Powerpro, but KastKing is trash, worse than Spiderwire by far.

KastKing was the only braid I've ever despooled and 86ed midseason.

Didn't make it to the lake on Saturday sadly, was having mental issues couldn't sleep, my leg kept having a spasm not going today either it's 4 am I'm gonna end up sleeping till 1 pm it's dark now at 6pm not worth driving down there and then walk 8 blocks to get to the spot I fish at.

So what are the top rod brands?
>>
>>1391764
Look like a pair of red wing pull on to me
>>
>>1398748
I've tried spiderwire on several occasions and every time it comes unbraided in the middle. It's also flat instead of round, which makes it cast weird and snarl easily.

That being said, there's like 10 different kinds of spiderwire braid and I haven't tried the pricier ones simply because if I'm gonna drop $35 on a spool of braid it's gonna be 832 or powerpro super slick.
>>
>>1398784
They suck for anything but soaking bait. You don’t want a flobby sloppy rod for working lures.

>>1398903
>>1398748
Spiderwire always seems a little more flexible than PowerPro straight out of the box, but after you break them in the PowerPro gets nice and soft while the Spiderwire (Stealth Braid) starts to fray a bunch and I’m constantly cutting off 10ft sections of line.

I've never had an issue with KastKing. No, it's not as good as 832 or Power Pro, but it's stronger than and limper than spiderwire and doesn't come unbraided.

I've had the same issues >>1398903
had with spiderwire, and also found that even with "good" knots (FG, palomar) it will break well below its rated strength right at the top of the knot, every other braid I've tried will break a few inches above the knot usually at a micro-knick I hadn't noticed.

Not sure then. I’m a filthy Youngstown fag. Mahoning river is poison but at least I have mosquito lake and west branch. Only time I go up to Cleveland is to fish on the big lake but that’s fairly rare for me. Used to catch decent walleye at the trailwaters of mosquito lake but I haven’t caught one all year. Tons of crappie and bluegill but bass are far and few between. I’m hoping ice fishing season gives me some luck

>>
>>1399956
they'll be long gone, i've been present to a couple trout stockings in different parks and it's gone the same way all three times

old fudds and retirees will literally camp out and wait full days until they see where they're being stocked then dozens of people will be in one tiny 15x15ft circle as the trout are dumped and they'll be caught within minutes with only a handful escaping to the next day

kind of pathetic honestly, they're given no chance at all
