How do I make a tuna lure to use when sailing across an ocean?

Most sailors who fish use a 200 pound hand-line. Making lures looks easy but I bet there are things a newbee won't understand about hooks, skirts, lures, crimps, etc.

Fishing Lures

After seeing this, it has me wonder if anyone has anyone else experimented with making fishing lures? Particularly, has anyone tried making any unusual fishing lures? With any success? I recall, when being dragged on fishing trips as a kid, that outdoor stores would often have some crazy gimmick lures that never seemed like they would work, but claimed to be the greatest thing that ever happened to fishing since the beer hat. I think it would be a fun challenge to not only make an incredibly bizarre fishing lure, but to get it to work.

What material can be used as a binder that would slowly dissolve in sea water?

There is an on-going problem in the fishing industry concerning bait in the crab fishery. Bait is becoming almost as expensive as crab. At the same time, there are by products in the seafood industry that are just being wasted that would fulfill the required needs if it could be combined with a sea water soluble material that could be adjusted to dissolve within set periods of time such as 3, 5 or 7 days. Anyone have any ideas? No soap or any material that would disturb the natural balance of the environment would work.

Phytoplankton and Zooplankton to attract fish?

I have recently heard things about using Phytoplankton/Zooplankton to attract minnows and other small fish. Can anyone explain how one would go about doing this and how long would the process take? Would this be a practical way of attracting minnows to catch and use as fishing bait?

Inventing on Vacation: Wounded Fish

This idea came to me after a day of fishing (I lost my best lure, but through the miracle of snorkeling, found it.) This seems like a simple idea, and I'm surprised it hasn't been invented yet. It is an improvement on the lures that supposedly look like a wounded fish.The idea is simple. A small, sealable "refill tube" connects to a hollow area inside the lure. This is the reservoir for fish blood. A thin membrane on one side of the lure allows the blood to seep out. You refill by filling an eyedropper with blood and inserting it into the refill tube. (I'm being brief right now because this is the third time I've typed this and I'm getting tired.)

how do i stop freshwater turtles eating my bait when fishing? Answered

Hi, I recently discovered a creek running past woolworths in sarina, becomes extremely large and ive deduced it holds sufficiently large and quanitity enough fish for fishing. I went there last week using raw chicken as bait, being as it catches essentially everything everywhere, and i got an extremely big bite, which would have likely have been something like a perch or maybe even a barramundi, its possible given the creek does eventually turn to saltwater. however, i found it to be a big nuiscance, because i was constantly reeling in turtles! a nuiscance because if i left the bait in one place for more than 5 minutes a turtle would gobble it down, fortunately i was able to remove the hooks on all the turtles, but it was still anoying, because turtles arent fish. How do i fish in a way in which i minimize, or considerably lower the likelyhood of catching turtles, whilst bait fishing? ideally ide like to keep suing chicken as its cheap and just works everwhere.

New World Record Largemouth

If you're into fishing you might find this report of a new world record breaking large mouth bass from Japan weighing 22 Lbs 5oz. This would beat the long standing, and controversial record of George Perry which has stood for 77 years by one ounce. But the record keepers require that the record be broken by 2 ounces. So Close.

So Bizarre, You Had to Know About This

My Dad sent me this. I suppose it's Halloween appropriate? Weird. Have you ever heard of "Bat Fishing?" Kids out in the countryside come up with creative things to occupy their time. This fellow called in to a radio show ... you have a very light monofilament line on your fishing pole. Tie on a very small hook like you would use for small trout, put a small weight just above the hook, and bait the hook with a little bread. You then toss the hook up over a wire or tree branch in an area where bats are flying around at dusk. Kind of tug or wiggle the line so the bats strike at it. Be patient ... eventually one of them will grab the hook. Then you can fly your bat around in the sky ... kind of like a kite. When the bat becomes exhausted, reel it in, remove the hook, and let it go.

electric kontiki - electronic fail safe

Has any one come up with and electronic fail safe - return to beach/ gps type system for the electric fishing kontiki's that we have here in Newzealand - and i am sure every where else... currently i understand the only controls available are timed engine run to get it to the desired distance off the shore, and the latests ones have gps correction for tides and surf out to a way point, the trouble is when the long line anchored on the beach becomes separated from the unit ( and the commercial ones are freaking expensive) you have just lost it... surely with the wizardry of electronics and the people that hang out here some one can create a system even better if its gps waypoint based ( beach) that on separation of the long line will automatically turn that hardware around and send it back to the beach, to some where near where it set off from?
