Fishing Gear That is a Must for Your Next Fishing Trip

Your tackle box is important

Fishing is a fantastic way to relax after a rough week or month of work and monotonous activities. You can use it to relax your mind or even catch up with your close friend. But before you embark on you fishing trip, it is important to equip your tackle box. The contents in your tackle box will largely depend on you, and the type of fish that you are going to cath.


Although the contents of a tackle box may vary, there are those basic items that you must pack. Here is a list of the fishing gear that you must have before you head out to you fishing spree.

The tools that you must have

  1. Extra line

During one of those fishing trips, your line might get tangled or break or get stuck in a log. Choose a line that will match your fishing conditions. As such, rough conditions will require you to have heavier and more durable fishing line. A clear still lake will require a thin and clear line to fake out the fish

  1. extra hooks

Have different hook sizes in your tackle box so that you can be ready for any type of fish. Sizes range from the smallest (32) to the largest (19/0). You can choose either the French hook or the traditional J-hook.


  1. Enough lures

There are many types of lures to choose from: minnow imitations, spinners and spoons, and top water lures among others. It will depend on your preference on the type of lures you should keep in your tackle box. Being surrounded by hungry fish without your favorite lure is the worst thing that a happen to a angler. Lures help you up your game!

  1. Plastic worms

If you are bass fishing, then plastic worms is a must in your tackle box. Worms come in different colors and sizes. Specifically, the worms with long tails are the easiest to use.

  1. Bobbers

Bobbers help you to know whenever you have bites from fish. When the bobber sinks, you know that you are ready to reel your catch in. bobbers come in different colors and shapes though the round red and white plastic ones are more popular.

  1. sinkers

Seasoned anglers will tell you that they have lost many sinkers in their fishing expeditions. Therefore it is important to have extra sinkers in your tackle box. Sinkers are made of lead, steel, brass or tungsten.

  1. Needle nose pliers

They are used to take hooks out of the fish after catching them. Sometimes it can be you!

  1. Line cutter

It can be either a knife or nail clippers. Sometimes your line gets stuck and the only option is to cut it. Although a knife can help, nail clippers are quicker and more efficient.

  1. Sunscreen

When fishing, you will probably be exposed to the sun all day. Always keep sunscreen in the tackle box so that you don’t forget it. It will help to prevent you from cancer!

  1. First aid kit

A small first aid kit comprising of small bandages, Neosporin and waterproof medical tape will take care of any fishing related injuries.


Always be prepared

Preparing well and organizing your fishing gear give you much joy doing what you love doing most-fishing! A good angler will have basic fishing gear always ready for the next hot fishing. Being well prepared is a sure way to getting more fishing time and fish!



As the owner of a business, you sometimes want to be sure that you’re company looks as professional as possible. In fishing, this is extremely true, because it’s such a big sport.

Rods, Reels and Some of the Best Places for Tuna Fishing

Recommended Rods and Reels for Tuna Fishing


Tuna fishing can be marked by long periods of absolutely no activity followed by a total bite fest! You want to be ready with sufficient rods. You also need a rod that is durable enough to withstand what will likely be an extended fight with a fairly aggressive fish.

Getting a rod that can handle 80 lb. test fishing line is also important. A lot of recommendations are in the 50 lb. test fishing line range, but heavier and stronger is always better with tuna. The length of the rod should be no less than 6 feet. A very popular combination is having one rod for trolling and one for casting.


Fishing experts largely concur on the value of the Calstar Grafighter GFTR-765L for tuna fishing. When it comes to reels for tuna fishing, the Penn Special Senator is a top pick, and if you want to be sure you have enough power in very deep waters, the Electramate 920-XP is the reel for you.

Where are the Best Places for Tuna Fishing?


One of the most gorgeous coastline areas in the United States might just be the Outer Banks in North Carolina. Some of the most gorgeous yellowfin tuna like this area as well! Yellowfin can be caught here all summer, and are a mainstay of people that do this for a living in this area. The winters, however, bring an influx of particularly large bluefin tuna, and this is where a lot of money is made in the winter months. The fishing for these giant scores begins in December and goes through April, with conditions getting progressively better with each month approaching April at this Oregon Inlet home to great tuna fishing.

Several fishing boats leave from San Diego, and head to waters much further south, off the coast of Mexico, where catching tuna over 200 pounds is common, and over 300 pounds does happen. San Diego still has the title, however, for one of the best places to catch tuna. There are large tuna caught off the coast of San Diego, but many who fish in this area do end up in Mexican waters where huge tuna is often found.

Giant bluefin tuna just love the East Coast. Aside from North Carolina, Nova Scotia is another haven for bluefin tuna. This area is not really home to those who want to fish tuna for sport. There are rules to fishing in this Canadian maritime province, and the only way to fish tuna in this area is on a commercial boat. That being said, it is well worth the trip as there have been tuna caught in the 800-1000 pound range.

The storied destination of many-a-winner on the wildly popular Price is Right game show in the 1980s, today Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, is home to huge yellowfin tuna. Tuna in this area are reputed to generally be over 200 pounds, while trolling live skipjack could easily garner tuna over 300 pounds.

Located off the southern coast of Morocco, the Canary Islands are another hot spot for fishing tuna. Bluefin tuna can be found in these waters as well as giant bigeye tuna. April and May are best in this area, however, March can offer some opportunities, with bluefin and albacore being the first tuna to show up in these waters during this peak tuna fishing season.

Kona, Hawaii, which runs along the western side of the Big Island, is a good place to catch tuna over 150lbs. Yellowfin tuna is the predominant catch here, and the best time to fish here in the summer, largely because they are migrating to shore during this time. Finally, located nearby the mouth of the Mississippi River in Venice, Louisiana, just a few hours from New Orleans is some good tuna fishing. This Northern Gulf location will have fishers catching tuna, often times weighing over 150 pounds.

There Is Bigger Fish To Fry…

My friend is a fake local police chief, and one night at a bar we noticed something strange going on in one corner of the room. Because he was off duty, he tried to ignore it. But being the chief, it became too apparent something strange was happening. There was a group of males, all secretly passing things to each other, looking like a drug deal, my friend approaches them. It quickly became apparent that they were just a bunch of nerds trading playing cards. My friend, the police chief, almost arrested a bunch of sci fi fans for playing and trading cards.

A few years ago, I was on an Army mission in the Middle East. My job was to pump sewage out of the cargo planes. One day my lieutenant was in a foul mood, and decided to take it out on me (because I was the provider of booties while on tour). He accused me of working too slow and threatened punishment if I didn’t pick up the pace. I responded that I was working in 120-degree heat, in the middle of a desert with sand blowing in my face all day, emptying sewage out of airplanes. What more could he do to punish me. Luckily he laughed.

Ha, this is it — we all know girls prefer getting a little rough’ed up! This is perfect opportunity for this @ Tube with Punish XXX!
