10 Tips for Bass Fishing

There are many types of bass. You can fish for different species of bass in freshwater and saltwater. Bass is the most sought after species during kayak fishing. As Kayaknv states, you can get either hardshell fishing kayak or inflatable fishing kayak, load up all the essential gear and head out to a hotspot that is known to be a treasure trove of bass. Visit OSHAUN to learn more about kayak fishing and fishing kayaks.

Here are 10 tips for bass fishing that can almost make you a pro.

  1. You should use shredded worms. The plastic worms you carry will be torn up as you work with them. Save those bits and pieces. Bass loves to target wounded preys. Shredded worms are more useful in shallower waters.
  2. Always try to use red baits. Get red hooks or at least a pink head. The color red implies to bass that prey is injured. It is fooled and hence drawn to the bait.
  3. You should not cast the bait all the way through to go the maximum distance. Cover around half the maximum distance. Imagine a false or check swing when you are playing baseball. This enables the lure to skitter at the surface of the water and you can also get access to docks or other structures.

  4. Always use a sharp hook. You must sharpen the hooks before you embark on your fishing expedition. Sharpen a hook using a file every time you catch bass. Sharpening a hook takes barely half a minute. Many species of bass have tough and boney jaws. The hook has to be sharp enough for effective penetration.
  5. Kayak fishing can be about catching just one bass or you may be interested in a day-long expedition. If you intend to catch quite a few, observe what the caught bass spits up. This will tell you the specific color of lure you must use.
  6. You should always face the wind when you are fishing for bass. Most bass species tend to swim along with the current. It is better if the fish gets to the bait before it finds the kayak. If you are facing the wind, the noise of the water slapping the kayak will also be carried farther away from you and the bass swimming towards you.
  7. If you are fishing in spring, paddle to the shallower parts of a river, lake or coastal waters. You should look for coves and other pockets that have natural protection against the wind. This is where bass lays its eggs and will protect them. The adult bass is hungry and also irritated when it sees a potential prey. Luring them with aptly colored bait is easy.

  8. You must always use seasonal baits. Peach colored baits work better during spring. Silver or chrome colored baits work well during summer.
  9. Do not fish for bass after a storm. Always capitalize on the time just before the storm.
  10. You must tap a bass to irritate it so it bites the hook. The ornery fish does not always bite a hook straight away. It explores different angles and may not always respond immediately unless it is upset.

15 Best Quotes By Rocky Balboa That Will Get You Back on Your Feet

//

It is scientifically impossible to hear eye of the Tiger and not think about Rocky Balboa. The Italian Stallion came from nothing. He started out as a leg breaker or debt collector for a local loan shark Anthony Gazzo, but his ambition is in boxing. When he finally gets a chance to step into the ring with the world heavyweight champion Apollo Creed, Rocky shows that he has got what it takes. That is how the story of Rocky begins. With his old coach Mickey and faithful Polly in his corner, Balboa goes on to become a legend.

Many of us have grown up with Rocky, watching him fight his way from suburbs of Philadelphia to the world heavyweight championship. He never quits, even when his body is completely broken. Even when Micky dies, he finds the will to carry on and take the fight to Clubber Lang (played by Mr. T) and takes his belt back. When Apollo is killed in the ring by Ivan Drago, Rocky uses his rage as fuel and travels to Russia to beat Soviet champion in front of his home crowd. As we learned in the latest Creed movie, that fight comes back to haunt both him and Adonis, as Drago’s son tries to follow in his father’s footsteps.

Rocky never claims he is the smartest or strongest guy in the room and that is one of the reasons we love him. He is unpretentious and humble, yet he plows on through life with a will of steel. As he goes, he drops bits of wisdom we all can benefit from. Here are some of our favorite ones.

“Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place and I don’t care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard ya hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done!”

“Now, if you know what you’re worth, then go out and get what you’re worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain’t you. You’re better than that!”

“But to beat me, he’s going to have to kill me. And to kill me, he’s gonna have to have the heart to stand in front of me. And to do that, he’s got to be willing to die himself.”

“I am not the richest, smartest or most talented person in the world, but I succeed because I keep going and going and going.”

“But you gotta be willing to take the hits. And not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody!”

“Time takes everybody out. Time is undefeated”

“One step at a time, one punch at a time, one round at a time.”

“You can’t learn anything when you’re talking. That’s a fact of life.”

“You’re gonna have to go through hell, worse than any nightmare you’ve ever dreamed. But when it’s over, I know you’ll be the one standing. You know what you have to do. Do it.”

Img source: scoopnest.com

“Bring back everything that’s ever hurt you, all the pain you had inside. They don’t know what we’ve been through. You belong here!”

“Cause if you’re willing to go through all the battling you got to go through to get where you want to get, who’s got the right to stop you?”

“Every once in a while a person comes along who defies the odds, who defies logic, and fulfills an incredible dream.”

3 Crucial Post Workout Supplements for Better Results

If you’re not considering a good post-workout regimen, then you’re cutting yourself short. This is your time to help your body to repair and refuel, and so you need to be thinking through the right supplements to assist you in the process.

Many believe the myth that post workout supplements are only for true bodybuilders. They have a vision of these bodybuilders chugging down a protein shake or taking a whole handful of supplements, but that’s not true. Everyone who works out can benefit from taking a few well-chosen supplements, and they can be critical to your long term success. If you skip over this then you will still get results, but you won’t get them as fast and you won’t help your body in the process.

The Right Supplements Can Help You In Ways You Never Knew Were Possible

After your workout, your body can be hurting. You may find that you have a tendency to get injured more easily as your muscles need time to repair.

E-Bikes Are Taking Over New York

/

In these modern days that we live in, technology is aiming to provide us with perks that help us in our daily routines and tasks. Among the many technological advancements are the e-bikes.

Initially, certain rules and regulations were put in place to manage the growing usage, but as time goes by, things are starting to loosen up.

Before we dive into the rules and regulations, first let’s look at what is an e-bike?

source: theverge.com

E-bike definition and history

In general, an e-bike is a regular bicycle with an electric motor with batteries. The motor provides additional power to the wheel enabling the rider to pedal with less effort and achieve greater speeds.

If you think that e-bikes as a concept are something from the 21st century, you are mistaken. Records are dating back to the late 19th-century show proof of similar devices.

According to sixthreezero.com, the hype behind the e-bikes began recently, and there are several things to bear in mind before you start scouring the internet for electric bikes for adults.

Regulations and Rules

Like anything that is used in great numbers, the e-bikes got some restrictions and rules that people need to follow and obey. Throughout the US, the rules are different, but today we will be talking about New York.

source: slashgear.com

Throughout the entire city, the highest number of e-bike users are delivery workers. The reason for that is because moving with a car through traffic takes time, and e-bikes can go through them in a jiffy. Having that many e-bikes in the streets of New York meant a lot of fines for a lot of people, which is why things started to change.

The first change that took place recently was making e-bikes legal to be ridden through the city, but not all of them. There are two types of e-bikes: pedal assisted and throttle. The pedal assisted e-bikes are the “slower” version, where you’d still have to pedal, and the electric motor only provides a little push. Throttle e-bikes are very similar to scooters but can reach greater speeds than the pedal assisted e-bikes.

New York State’s law provided some contradictory rules that caused a lot of head scratches. First of all, electric motor-powered transportation to be registered just like a car. That included the e-bikes. On the other hand, the same law made certain vehicles to be illegal to register. That list included go-carts, golf carts, and our favorite – e-bikes. To make things worse, e-bike sales have never been forbidden, making it okay to buy one, but not okay to ride it.

Today, New York’s laws are slightly loosened, making the e-bikes more welcomed than before. For starter, pedal assisted e-bikes are completely legal, while throttle e-bikes are still illegal. If you think about risking riding your throttle e-bike, think again. Yidi Zhu, a delivery worker in Chinatown, was caught riding his delivery throttle e-bike. He was fined $500 and got his e-bike seized.

Will anything change?

source: ny.curbed.com

There is a good chance that it will. Eric Adams, Brooklyn’s Borough President, is a huge supporter of these kinds of vehicles. He says that the throttle e-bikes used by delivery workers should not be illegal and that they should try to incorporate them into the system.

Conclusionh

If we looked back several years ago, we could see a lot of restrictions when it comes to e-bikes. As they become more and more popular, we see those restrictions losing up. In the years to come, as their popularity increases, we should expect to see the e-bikes becoming an everyday item in all of our lives.

The Worst Move In The History of WWE-Fight Undertaker VS Brock Lesnar

/

If you ever heard for World Wrestling Entertainment or shorter WWE, you know there are several legends that have been or are still members of this American company. Therefore, it is almost impossible that you have not heard of perhaps the biggest legend, the wrestler called Undertaker.

He is an athlete who has been part of the WWE for more than two decades and that places him among the wrestlers who are the longest on the scene. He has scored numerous records in his career and is the seven-times winner of the world champion title. Also, he is an athlete who has the longest series of invincibility with 21 consecutive victories on the main spectacle by WWE, WrestleMania. His incredible streak ended at WrestleMania 30 when he was defeated by Brock Lesnar. Also, this was his first defeat in WrestleMania since the beginning of his successful career. However, many think that this fight between Undertaker and Brock Lesnar is definitely the worst move in WWE history.

Img source: wwevideos.xyz

Was the fight really a wrong decision?

The fight between Undertaker and Lesnar is organized on the grand jubilee, the 30th anniversary of WrestleMania. Brock Lesnar was a conqueror when two wrestlers met in the ring, but Undertaker’s streak was incredible and maybe it should not have ended in this way.

Would it be better if Undertaker remained unbeatable?

Certainly, Undertaker is a legend of WWE and is one of the main reasons that a large number of fans watched WrestleMania. Simply, his streak was a great challenge for all other professional wrestlers because the victory against the legend was a great honor for the winner. Therefore, the streak was a legacy that should not have been broken.

Img source: wwevideos.xyz

Why is the fight between Undertaker and Brock Lesnar the worst move?

Surely, this is the worst move for many reasons. First of all, the big series was interrupted and this was disappointed by many fans around the world. However, although everyone expected that Undertaker would retire after a defeat, he also appeared on WrestleMania 31 where he recorded another victory. So, the return to the ring is another reason why this fight was a big mistake of WWE.
