Gear to Pack While Fishing

You never want to on a hunting excursion or any kind of fishing trip without the proper gear. That’s a common mistake that a lot of beginners make and some intermediates too, I’m sad to say. Now here’s a comprehensive list of things that you need to pack in order to make your hunting excursion much more efficient and hassle free. After all a lot of us are just fishing for fun and how can you have fun when you’re sitting there suffering from your mistakes or are making your life harder by not having the right gear? Without further ado, here’s what you need:

 

  1. Fishing rod. I know I shouldn’t be saying this but you can get so caught up in your trip that you might forget the most important thing to bring. A fishing rod is an important tool to bring as it allows you to catch the fish the proper way. I suppose you can go and stfishing-rod-326843_960_720art spear fishing, which is also very interesting and a brand
    new
    novel experience that you and your family can enjoy as you go back to your roots. But most likely you’re here to find some nice fishes and for that you’re going to need to bring a fishing rod with you as otherwise you won’t really catch anything, if much at all.

 

  1. Umbrella. An umbrella is a highly versatile tool. If you went out on a fishing trip and sat there for hours on end, you’d most likely get a sunburn unless you bring a sunscreen out. But more on that in the next point, for now let’s focus on umbrellas. Umbrellas are also very good at keeping the winds at bay in case it gets windy. You can easily just simply tilt it to prevent a gush of wind disturbing your peace.

Another benefit of umbrellas is that they also offer protection against rain and drizzle. If you go out on your trip and are trying to not get wet, I’d highly recommend that you invest in an umbrella. You can get those beach umbrellas as they tend to do a fairly good job against the sunshine and the rain. Even if it is hailing, these umbrellas can potentially shield you , although I do find it odd to carry a beach umbrella into an icy lake or something, you’re much better off just bringing warmer clothes with yourself.

  1. Sunscreen. If you’re out fishing, you’re likely just sitting there not moving much for hours on end. And how can you do that and expect to not get nasty sunburn at the end of the day? This I s where sunscreens come in. The sunscreen is highly beneficial to your health and tries to aim with one that has SPF of 50. A fun fact is that any sunscreen that are over SPF 50 work pretty much identically as the ones who are SPF 50 as that’s the highest benefit that a single sunscreen can give you.

 

Conclusion

That concludes this post about the gear that you have to pack. I plan on writing a part 2 to this as there is truly quite a lot of gear that you can pack with you on a fishing trip or a hunting trip and I wouldn’t want to make you miss anything that is important. I’ll probably get the article up sometime next week. That’s all for today folks, and I hope you all beautiful people have a fantastic and glories day!

Types of Fishes That You Can Catch

When you’re out fishing you’re likely to catch many types of fish. Here I have compiled some of the most common ones that you can catch. Without further ado, here they are:

      1. Arctic Char – it is quite a symbolic figure of the arctic and it is debatably one of the most if not the most exotic fish that you can catch. Just make sure to take a picture of one before you gobble it down.
      2. Arctic Grayling – alternatively called the sailfish of the north, this fish right here is very well treasured for its super aggressive aerial actions as it can fly up into the sky and rain down upon anyone trying to enjoy it as their dinner.
      3. Black Crappie – this fish is far from crap, it is actually one of the biggest reasons that the anglers have come to start fishing as it gives out precious caviar which is hard to get. Of course, not at the level of black caviar but caviar nonetheless.
      4. Brook Trout – the trout right here is super solid and you can use a variety of different ways to catch it like fly fishing or even ice fishing. Another favorite of mine.
      5. Brown Bullhead – this fish is nothing special and that is exactly where its specialty lies. Almost everyone will encounter it at some point in their lives which makes it one of the most common catches that a fisher on an angler will see in their lifetime.
      6. Brown Trout – the trout is usually colored in a nice shade of diarrhea to leaky stool which is what gives it its name. It is quite challenging to catch like the toilet is when you accidentally drank a bottle of laxatives thanks to your pranking “friend” who you will get back shortly. May or may not be what I do.
      7. Burbot – now here’s a fish. This one is a pain in the behind to catch and requires a lot of effort to get. It gets a name of being the least likely that you will take it home but if you do catch it you get an angling award since it’s such a pain to actually catch.
      8. Channel Catfish – this fish is no joke. It’s like a tinder date that you get. In the pics it looks super solid, beautiful with the right curves in the right places, and the right weight and size. But once you see it in person you find out that your whole thing was just a simple lie. And then you get depressed but are too tired to stay and too tired to leave so you just wait awkwardly for a date. That’s why I recommend to just find a nice packed bar and tell her to come over and if you see her being overweight by a solid 50 pounds and hideous then you run away stealthily just like in the game metal gear solid 5. BTW, that’s one of the most fantastic games that I have played just for you information.

In conclusion, these are the most common fishes that you will usually catch. There are obviously a lot more but I might write a part 2 for this if enough people want it. But for now, if you guys have any questions feel free to contact me. Thank you for reading and have a great day!

Things to Pack While Out On a Hunt

Now you’re ready to go out on a hunt. Do a true man’s job, so to say. However, you need to make sure that you have packed everything properly and are ready to go in order to make this experience much more enjoyable and not have any frustrations long after you are on your trip. With that said, here are the top things that you need to have when you are going out on a hunt:

  1. A Solid Jacket

Nothing beats a solid jacket. Trust me, you don’t want to go outside and have a jacket that is too hot, too cold or god forbid not waterproof if you are out in the rain. A solid jacket is such a crucial tool to have to any would be potential hunter, I cannot stress that enough.

Some recommendations include 5.11 jackets as 5.11 is known for their quality and durability as well as superb heat insulation and finger warming additions. But if you’re out with a bunch of friends it’s better to hit up a Gucci jacket to style on them. You’ll look the best of the pack and as a direct result, feel the best. That’s how jackets work right?

  1. Hunting Boots

Another piece of clothing that you should not underestimate under any circumstance, good hunting boots are essential to have if you want to have a good hunting trip. Having your feet cold and wet is probably one of the, if not the, worst things that you can have during a multi hour or in some cases, multi day excursions and that’s why we recommend getting some good boots. Our friends at outdoor ranger have posted a well thorough list of best hunting boots that you can take a look at if you want to see some of the best options.

Generally the companies that you want to look for are Kenetrek, Lowa and Aerohead. Those 3 are the present top dogs in the hunting boot business. Other competitors might come close but never better than those 3. Consider them to be the Rogers, Verizon and AT&T of boots so to say.

  1. Sunglasses

It can get pretty sunny if you’re out in the field and your vision is one of the most important things that you have in order to find your prey. After all, how many world class hunters and fishers have you seen that are blind?

This is why I recommend having a solid pair of sunglasses. Not just a pair, but a solid pair as it is likely to fall off or get damaged and you can’t afford the luxury of getting a new pair of Gucci’s every time they break (unless you can in which case great job on having an amazing bank account and I’d appreciate if you can donate a couple of dollars to me).

  1. Pants

Unless you’re going out hunting in your underwear and boots, getting a solid pair of pants is very important in terms of overall comfort levels of your hunting excursion. My recommendation is to go with tactical pants as that offer the best kinds of support and many good brands have many additional features that you can use. For example, the 5.11 line features a keychain holder which will no doubt come in useful when you are going to be planning to chain your keys sometime in the near future. The important thing here to realize is that you can never have too many features as the more the better, like my grandpa used to say.

You can also get those new 2016 pants that have scent hiding capabilities if you’re hunting deer cause deer have an amazing sense of smell (somehow as good as my dog’s) so they’ll sniff you our from far away. Funny story, my friend was taking an ant seizure medication and a side effect of that is involuntary fecal excretion. So basically, he shit his pants. The worst part was that we couldn’t’ find any deer for a 100 km radius around us and called it a day.

That’s basically it. Once you have these things you are technically good to go. If you have any additional questions feel free to send an email and I’ll try to get back to you as soon as possible.

Beginner’s Guide to Fishing

Ah yes, you’ve decided to embark on the fine craft of fishing. Fishing is a great activity to do if you’re bored and are not looking to do too much movement. Or any at all for that matter. Fishing is like chilling with your friends at a bar and just having fun. Especially if the day is nice, you can put on some nice lounge instrumental hits and just ponder life and your goals. If you’re lucky, you might even catch a fish!

Part 1: The Rod

The rod is imperative to have for fishing as without you can’t really fish. Well to be honest, you can fish but with spears instead. To be honest, fishing spears are pretty fun to use, much more manly to fish with than the normal fishing lines in my honest opinion. I have tried it once and it was a pretty cool experience. Granted, my hand to eye coordination was worse than Michael J. Fox on a trampoline but I still got 1 fish from my 4 hour excursion.

Some good rods are those made by Amazon or DeGrant’s. I particularly love the DeGrant rods as they offer support like no other rod.

The rods are made up of 3 to 4 parts usually. There the male bottom that penetrates deep into the female middle. The male end of the middle also goes balls in into the top female slot. Depending on how much you’ve used your fishing rod, it might be tight to put it in at first but then it loosens up. You can always use a little lubricant to make things a little smoother.

 

Part 2: The Line

The line is another important piece of the fishing rod. You can say that without a proper and well-made line, your fishing career will be on a line. Ha, back to the line, my favorite are the carbon fiber and nylon wires as they tend to provide the strongest and most versatile and elastic support when it comes to fishing.

The way that you hook the line is simple, you find the holes in the rod, and then you insert the long and strong line into it multiple times, in and out to make sure it fits in properly. It’s pretty small and doesn’t have much girth so you can easily slide it in. Once it’s in, you can proceed to hook the lure onto it.

 

Part 3: The Knot

You thought we’re going straight to the lure? Not so fast, first we have to tie the line and then we can proceed so to say.

My favorite kind of knot I learned back in my boy scout days and that is the good ol’  hempshire reverse ez breezy knot.  So what you gotta do is firstly put the knot into a straight line. Then you put one end into the other and tie a circle. After you tie the circle you twist it at the sides and make a y shape. The opening in the y allows you to put a 3rd line into it from the back, backside attack if you will. Then, as the foreign new and thick rope enters the backside, you clasp onto it tightly with the first rope. And ta-da!

Part 4: The Lure

And finally, you just put the lure onto it. Make sure it’s tight but not too tight cause you might have to remove it later when you’re having a slow fish day or your lure is cheap and the fishes don’t like it.

Conclusion:

And so, you have learned how to use a fishing rod. How do you feel? It’s a lot to grasp at once so make sure you read through it multiple times.  Anyway, if you want more information just contact me and I’ll try to answer all of your questions. Joseph out!

What is Fishing Tackle?

Ah yes, the age old question. A lot of people seem to wonder as to what the tackles themselves mean, whether they have anything to do with tackling like in rugby, what is the difference between this and bait and much more. Well to start off, a tackle is typically a piece of a random piece of equipment that is very commonly used by a wide variety of fishermen when they are usually out on a fishing excursion of some sort. That is the basic premise of a tackle and not exactly the most thorough one even though I’ll go in depth more later on.

The standard of what can be successfully considered a fishing tackle and what is considered some bull shit you buy at a dollar store is somewhat blurred in between. Pretty much any piece of equipment and or gear that is used for fishing can be called a fishing tackle. This means that:

  1. A dead worm
  2. Your grandma’s knitting kit
  3. Rat’s brains
  4. Dollarshop sh-tuff
  5. Deer intestines
  6. Bull’s feces
  7. Eagle’s eyeballs

Are all considered to be fishing tackle which is quite baffling if you ask me personally. I’m not too sure why the definition is so vague but I suppose you can’t really change shit that has existed for quite a minute now in various speakings of hunters alike.

The term itself has come from 1398 AD. That’s so far back I don’t even know what AD is. After death? No idea son, I got no idea. But I do know that that is pretty far back. That shit was before even world war 2 happened. Even world war 1 already was not in the planning stages.  But then again, who plans world wars?

Anyway, this thing is so old that even Atlantis was alive. Yes, Atlantis, the country of the seas, the crème of the crop, the most advanced civilization that has ever lived. Did you know that they had working toilets? That blows my mind dude.

 

Anyway, I digress, back to the tackles. A common one is hook, line and sinker. The hook attaches to the line that attaches to the piece of object and attaches to the sinker. The sinker is the part of the tackle that sinks and as such it is important to realize the importance of the sinker itself as it is quite the bad boy. But the line is the most important one. I guess you can say your fishing livelihood is at line without a good line. As it goes, a pun is worth 1000 words but a picture is worth a little bit more. And that is the philosophy of the Kingmeister.

 

Some of the standard nylon monofilament lines that have been created in the labs of jfonline have found a lot of things out that are pretty interesting to be honest with you. For example, they have many copolymers of fluorocarbon and if there’s anything I remember from chemistry class (and that is a pretty rare thing too) it’s that fluorine explodes and kills everyone. How it is used in lines is beyond me, maybe you combust the fish? I suppose that way the fish won’t move, after all after you’ve had your brains blasted out by a fluorine bomb you can’t really swim that well.

 

I love the sinkers the most though. You got these lead sinkers which are pretty heavy and sink when put in water. Which is a good thing because if your sinker floats then it’s a floater (not like the floaters in your eye, those are just parasitic worms living inside of you – sorry to break the truth to you).

 

Anyway, I hope this answers your question of what a tackle is. If you have any more questions feel free to contact me and holla. I’ll be waiting outside of your window. Look behind you now.
