Fishing Line

Fishing line is important and there are four different types of line. The first one is called a monofilament. This type of fishing line is made from plastic and is made with one line of plastic. This type of fishing line can be spun with several lines to make it stronger. These varying strengths are known as tests. Basically monofilament line is lower in cost. It can be purchased in different colors or in florescent colors. Monofilament line can become easily knotted and is not very forgiving in its shape as over time is will adhere to the reel shape. The monofilament line should not be used if deep sea fishing. It is ideal for use with a spinning reel or baitcasting reel.

Topwater Fishing for Largemouth Bass

April 19, 2011 11:47 am
posted by Terry

Fishing for largemouth bass on topwater can be exciting but tricky for the experienced angler.  When fishing on topwater, check out the surroundings and vegetation near the lake.  Largemouth bass are attracted to what is naturally occurring in their surroundings.  So grab your Abu Garcia fishing reel and choose a lure that looks natural.

One lure that looks natural and is being used by many bass anglers is the new frog-style plastic lure.  This lure looks like a frog creature and its legs make a whipping sound as it is reeled through the water.  This lure also comes in different colors so the angler can match the lure to the surroundings and vegetation of the lake.

Learning to Fish

February 28, 2011 4:46 pm
posted by A-Reel-Good-Time

As a little kid, my parents would ship me off to summer camp for a few weeks every summer. Aside from meals and sleeping, every moment was spent outdoors. Fishing was one of our weekly activities. The youngest kids would use sticks with line tied off the end and use white bread as bait (they did this because a bunch of unruly elementary school kids are likely to swing their rods around and stick each other with the hooks).

Older age groups got their hands on quality equipment. Those campers who wanted to learn advanced techniques trained with spincast reels. Older campers who finished training were taken on a field trip to a nearby lake. They’d spend the weekend fishing, camping, and learning how to clean and cook their catch.

Spincasting with Poppers or Chuggers

8:58 am
posted by Terry

If the lure can float, than it can be used as a topwater bait. There are five different types of topwater baits available on the market. Upcoming blogs will focus on the different types of baits and fishing reels that should match the bait chosen.

The most common topwater bait is the popper or chugger. This bait makes a popping or gurgling sound while angler is reeling in the line. Trout seems to respond well to poppers. Grab your favorite spincast reel and head to your trout fishing hole.
