Unraveling the Mystery of Southern New England’s Cod

The year was 2003. I was out hiking with my dad, and he asked me if I wanted to see a rare fish for the first time. He told me about how he had seen this monster of a fish while bird hunting in southern New England, and he wanted to share this rare opportunity with me. Little did I know that this day would forever change the course of my life.

In the fall of 2012, a large and mysterious rock formation was discovered in the woods of southern New England. The formation, dubbed the Cod Rock, features a tremendous collection of carved rocks, leading the casual observer to believe the rock formation was the site of some sort of ritualistic ceremony. Reporting on the discovery was sparse, and the origins of the rocks was not reported.

Although the plight of Atlantic cod in the Northeast is well known, the rise of fishing in southern New England has puzzled scientists but excited anglers. It is now common knowledge that Atlantic cod is in bad shape, dramatically so. According to the 2019 stock assessments, stocks in the Gulf of Maine and on Georges Bank remain overfished, and the groundfish fishery north of Cape Cod has shifted to haddock and pollock. But if you drive a little further south, a different picture emerges. Over the past decade, cod has gained a foothold in the waters off Block Island. During the winter months, forage and spawning stocks turn into spawning stocks, and anglers come from far and wide to travel in party and charter boats from Point Judith and Montauk in search of the magnificent prey of the whitefish. No, not the 40 and 50 pound mackerel of years past, but healthy, marketable fish with enough 20 pounders to keep things interesting. It’s a pleasant surprise to fishermen, but a mystery to fisheries scientists, especially since the area from New Jersey to Rhode Island is the southernmost distribution area of Atlantic cod. Due to the warming of coastal waters, cod in these southern areas are expected to be particularly vulnerable to the effects of climate change, but this fishery is resilient and even getting stronger. Adding to the confusion is the fact that federal trawl surveys rarely record cod in this area and that, although cod are managed in this area as part of the spawning stock on George’s Bank, the fishery here outperforms other parts of the management unit. New research is helping scientists and managers learn more about the population dynamics of this southern cod and whether it is a distinct and self-sustaining population. New research suggests that southern New England cod, like this well-fed specimen from Kevin Chung, could form their own breeding population. word-image-2703 Randomized trials : Larval cod in Narragansett Bay When I was a student at the University of New England in Maine, I found out that the cod in the Gulf of Maine were in very poor condition due to a combination of overfishing and climate change, says Joe Langan, a doctoral student at the University of Rhode Island Graduate School of Oceanography (URIGSO). Imagine his surprise when he learned at the start of his doctoral studies in 2015 that the local cod fishery was booming that winter. The party boat fishermen limited the catch and since all the herring were caught offshore, some even caught cod from shore. The fishermen said it was the best fishing since the 70s, but all I could think about was: You gotta be kidding me! During graduate school, Langan focused his research on winter flounder, but he couldn’t ignore cod. We have been researching larval winter flounder in Narragansett Bay, but we have also continued to catch larval cod as far away as the city limits of Providence. This discovery prompted Langan and colleagues to pause their research on winter flounder and examine historical sighting and fishing data to better understand the life history and abundance of Rhode Island cod. Joe Langan, a doctoral student in the Graduate School of Oceanography at the University of Rhode Island, has found that the number of juvenile cod caught off the coast of Rhode Island in a given year largely predicts commercial and recreational catches two years later. word-image-2704 The team reviewed larval fish catches and trawl surveys conducted by the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management (RIDEM) and URIGSO. Larval surveys have been conducted sporadically in Narragansett Bay since 2001, but trawl surveys have been conducted in Rhode Island waters since the late 1950s to sample juvenile (less than 8 inches), juvenile (8-15 inches), and adult (greater than 15 inches) cod; these surveys provide a rich collection of data for the research team. The scientists then modeled how environmental conditions such as temperature and precipitation can affect cod stocks. To understand the relationship between the survey results and what anglers see on the water, the research team also looked at recreational and commercial catch data in the region collected by NOAA Fisheries’ Marine Recreational Information Program (MRIP) and NOAA Fisheries’ Vessel Trip Reporting (VTR) program. Facts and Figures Langan and colleagues found that the number of juvenile cod found in trawl fisheries has increased since 2002. In addition, they found that the number of juvenile cod in a given year was a great predictor of commercial and recreational catches two years later, when these fish have reached juvenile size. For example, everyone remembers the 2011 Rhode Island cod bonanza, which was preceded in 2009 by the largest abundance of juvenile cod in the 1979 RIDEM trawl survey. This indicates that the fish caught are juveniles located in the same area and not adults migrating from other locations. In other words: The research team’s findings are consistent with what anglers have observed on the water over the past 20 years. We don’t know exactly why they’re back, but they are back, and all data sources confirm it, Langan says. It wasn’t just being spoiled at a young age that made it possible to tell this story. We observe all stages of Atlantic cod off the coast of Rhode Island: first-hatch larvae, older larvae, juveniles, young fish and adults. That’s strong evidence that these fish in southern New England likely form their own reproductive population, Langan said. He notes that there is evidence that some of the larvae found in the area were imported from the western Gulf of Maine; however, given the presence of newly hatched larvae in Narragansett Bay, the research team is convinced that at least some of the reproduction is local. Although fishermen have enjoyed great cod catches in southern New England in recent years, the future of this fishery is in question as waters continue to warm due to climate change. word-image-2705 Dr. Langan’s findings of a self-sustaining cod stock in southern New England are consistent with the results of a stock structure study conducted by NOAA Fisheries and Fisheries and Oceans Canada, which identified five different spawning stocks, including one in southern New England. The study also complements a growing body of research in morphometrics (analysis of the relative shape of fish), mark-making and genetics, which suggests that southern New England cod may be different from other species. It remains to be seen how these new studies can be reconciled with the current management of the two Atlantic cod stocks (Gulf of Maine and Georges Bank). Climate change Langan’s study found that the situation for cod in southern New England was not good. We found a strong negative correlation between bottom temperature in February and the number of juvenile cod, he says: The higher the temperature, the smaller the number of young cod. And six of the 10 warmest Februarys ever recorded by the URIGSO trawl survey have occurred since 2002, when cod stocks began to increase. As the water warms further, adult cod may find it more difficult due to a combination of unusually warm fall temperatures and an increase in competitors such as black sea bass. For now, however, cod appear to be holding their own in the region, offering a glimmer of hope for this troubled species and giving managers a chance to revisit the assumptions used to try to maintain and restore cod stocks in a warming ocean.

RV History: The Classic Era – 1971 – 1989

If you have ever watched the History Channel, then you have seen the RV Complete series on the History Channel. The show was produced by Mountie Productions and the host was David Adler. Throughout the episodes, a red lab coat was worn by Adler and he would discuss about RVing.

The RV boom of the 1970s experienced tremendous growth. The economy was just starting to rebound, and optimism and energy permeated the nation. Despite the growing national economy, the off-grid lifestyle was still popular, as more and more people sought pleasure away from the all-too-familiar city.

The RV industry experienced a period of astonishing growth during the 1970s.

The early 1970s created new challenges for the RV industry. The rise of the global economy, new technologies and the way the recreational vehicle industry did business made the period 1971-1989 a crucial one. On the other side of the classic era, the RV world has witnessed the standardization of construction methods, the emergence of a new class of motorized vehicles, and one of the Detroit Big Three made decisions that determined its future in RV history.  If you study the history of RVing, especially the classic era of the RV industry, you will learn about the important influences that shaped the years between 1971 and 1989. Many of these innovations and developments have led to the modern age we know today. If you want to start at the very beginning, we recommend you start with the first volume of our RV History series – The Old World (1910-1944). We continue with the era of motorized classic cars (1945-1970), then the era of towed classic cars. Each article focuses on the types of recreational vehicles and the industry influences that led to the classic era.

How the 1973 gas crisis affected RV history

In the early 1970s, the U.S. reduced its oil production and relied primarily on oil from the Middle East. The U.S. government and Wall Street assumed that the Organization of Arab Oil Exporting Countries (OAPEC) needed the volume of oil purchases from the United States and Europe to survive economically. OAPEC did not agree. In 1973 the OAPEC announced an oil embargo against the United States and the Netherlands. The organization quadrupled the price of oil to other European consumers from $3 to $12 to compensate for the loss of export volume. Gas rationing was widespread in all the countries concerned. In America, gas stations closed on Sundays and consumers lined up to fill up their cars with V8 or straight-six engines so they could go to work. Gas shortage in the early 1970s. word-image-5559 The six-month embargo was in effect from October 1973 to March 1974. Although this is a low season, it will take months for U.S. gas supplies to return to sustainable levels. The delay of several months caused a delay in the 1974 camping season. Travelers pulled up or started their motorhomes when they could, but long trips waited until the next year. The word Made in America still resonated in the hearts and minds of all citizens, but after the embargo, Japanese car brands such as Toyota and Honda began to attract people’s attention. Their fuel-efficient four-cylinder vehicles will reduce average fuel costs and increase range. The automotive industry has received a new demand from consumers. Instead of big V8 petrol engines, people wanted economy. Washington began passing laws on energy efficiency and pollution, and established the Department of Energy. The goal was to find ways to produce energy on a national level and to find new alternatives. The RV industry has had to adapt to these changes. The concept of lightweight caravans was not new, but it was a change of direction. The good news is that the innovations were already there, they just needed to be developed and adapted to the new era of cars with four and six cylinders. This flexibility has led to changes in the RV industry and ultimately in the history of RVing.

Fashion is said to be cyclical. When we look at today’s motorhomes, we see that many categories or components have their origins in earlier eras. The best example is the pop-up camper. In the old days (1910-1944), the most affordable caravan was the tent camper. The tarpaulin tent is installed in a brick building trailer. The poles were inserted into the sides of the trailer so they didn’t have to sleep in the mud. The nicest versions had beds that folded up in the middle of the trailer. Although the 1954 Ranger failed in the era of classic cars (1945-1970), its roof-lift mechanism became the staple of the pop-up category. Pop-ups started in the 1960s, but by the 1970s family vans had replaced pop-ups. Families could easily fit them in the garage; they were very light and offered enough amenities to live comfortably in a caravan.   The plans of the current pop-ups are the same as those of the 1960s and 1970s: two double beds sticking out in the middle. There is a dining area and a galley kitchen with storage cabinets. Most pop-ups originally used a double cloth for the walls, but then began using alternative fabrics for better weather protection. If you were a kid in the era of the classic RV, we invite you to share your stories of handstands and other fun home decorating moments you experienced with your parents’ RV in the comments section below. The author recalls his father spending an hour and a half fiddling with a carpenter’s spirit level to measure the balance of a pop-up window. As a young man, the writer had to adjust the stabilizers by about eight inches each time.

Extra light trailer egg on wheels

In 1968, fiberglass specialist Ray Oleko and mold maker Shandor Dusa opened the Boler Manufacturing Company in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Erwin Krieg was the third partner in the alliance and responsible for production. At first, it was difficult for Boler to gain market share with its compact caravan. With a price tag of nearly $1,500, it was hard to sell the van when the average selling price of competitors was $900. Eventually Oleko found its market and Bohler became a success. Few four-cylinder cars could tow a van in those days. The Boler travel van was the first manufacturer of vans with full glazing. Instead of using the traditional van design (see below), Oleko and his team developed background colors for the lower and upper halves of the caravan. The two halves of the van are shaped and assembled – a horizontal seam runs down the middle of the sides, front and back. The fiberglass casings were also used as frames for the car. The Bohler weighed 800 pounds, but was four times stronger than the steel in a van of the same weight. The Oleko trailer had a dining room with four chairs in the back that could be converted into a queen-size bed. At night, the front bench was converted into a bunk bed. The removable platform with legs fits into the corners of the Gaucho sofa. The kitchen cabinet, which was on the door side between the cabinets, contained a two-burner propane stove and a sink. In addition to the pantry in the kitchen, there was a large closet next to the front door. Most fiberglass caravans still use this layout.   Boler’s expansion into the United States was short-lived. Although a big seller in Canada, Americans were not enamored with eggshell travel trailers. One major franchisor, the Eveland family of Minnesota, kept the mold after Boler closed in 1972 and created Scamp and Casita. Erwin Krieg diversified and founded L’il Bigfoot and Armadillo Trailers. Trillium Trailers is also a descendant of Boler. After an initial failed attempt, Calgary-based Outback Custom Lightweight Trailers took over the molds and once again opened the doors for Trillium. The other fiberglass caravan companies are not direct descendants of Boler. Almost all of these RV manufacturers sell their RVs to direct order, not mass production. Before 2020, the average waiting time to place an order was between six months and a year.

Industry is shifting to the traditional use of sticks and cans

Since the early days (1910-1944) of RV history, RV manufacturers have utilized the traditional RV design in one form or another. The industry did not standardize it until the beginning of the classical era. The practice of wood frame construction and corrugated aluminum cladding has its origins in residential construction. You can hear RV industry professionals refer to these vehicles as a stick and sheet metal when comparing them to their newer counterparts with aluminum frames and laminated fiberglass walls. The VR engineers experimented with different types of wood, both light and strong. Today’s traditional wooden frames use printing and other treatments to enhance the properties of the wood. Corrugated aluminum is rust resistant when properly coated. It is light and does not break. The bending increases the strength of the aluminium. Both materials are also cheap to buy as building materials. You can learn more about the comparison between conventional vans and aluminum vans in our main article to help you decide which model of travel trailer is best.

Luxury sports car revolutionises the motorhome industry

In 1965, the Oldsmobile division developed GM’s first front-wheel drive chassis, unwittingly laying the groundwork for the history of the motorhome. In 1970, the Toronado had a 17.9-foot chassis and used a 454-hp V8.  Initially Oldsmobile was not allowed to pursue this project, but when GM management realized they had something that could compete with Ford’s Thunderbird, the car was given the green light anyway. The motorhome industry has been having a musical chairs game when it comes to choosing chassis and engines for Class A motorhomes. One year you could see a Chevrolet P30 chassis with a 5.7 or 7.4L engine with 454 horsepower. A year or two later, the P30 camper will use a Ford F-Series or Dodge M-Series chassis. The rear wheel arches are high due to the leaf spring suspension and other factors.   Few people knew that the chassis of the Oldsmobile Toronado was long enough to accommodate a Class A motorhome. With a few modifications, the front-wheel drive allowed the van to stay low to the ground and leave enough room for the large tanks. The Clark Cortez motorhome we wrote about in Motorized Vintage Era magazine used to use a Toronado chassis for several years. When GM took the second generation (this version started in 1971) Toronado off the market in 1978, the RV industry was no longer interested in this chassis. Only one manufacturer was using it at the time, and that was GM itself. As you will see, GM didn’t think the RV industry would survive long, and sealed its fate in the annals of RV history.

GMC competes with theByam family.

In 1968 John Hall, son-in-law of Airstream founder Wally Byam, began making his own REVOLUTIONARY CONTEMPORARY. The Revcon Class A motorhome was the first to use the Oldsmobile Toronado FWD chassis. John used his knowledge of his father-in-law’s construction techniques to build an all-aluminum frame and lowrider body that cornered better than any other car on the road. GM was unsure of Hall’s decision to use the Toronado chassis. When John made the deal with GM for the chassis, he had to agree to the condition that he would be responsible for all testing and sharing his data with GM. After tests that cost thousands of dollars and lasted more than a year, his suspension worked perfectly. In its early days, the Revcon was a 2.5 meter van with a single rear axle and a flat nose. In recent years, the nose has been aerodynamically refined and a double axle has been added at the rear on the 33-foot version. The interior was luxurious. Back when most motorhomes had wet tubs, Revcon was a dry tub motorhome with aluminum interior walls with vinyl wallpaper and teak panels. Full production began in 1971, but Hall closed in 1977 due to declining sales. His biggest competitor: the one he had to share his test data with. One of the reasons for Revcon’s demise was competition. In 1973-1978, GM, through its GMC division, decided to enter the RV market with the Toronado chassis and the same 454 big block V8 used by John Hall. It was available in a 23 or 26 foot version with two axles. The official name was TVS-4, but many call it the GMC submarine. Gemini Corporation manufactured the interior in Mount Clemons, Michigan, and a total of 12,921 units left the factory. Today, there are an estimated 8,000 to 9,000 vehicles still in circulation. Restoration companies like Cooperative Motor Works, Inc. in Orlando, Florida, specialize in restoring these monumental pieces of RV history.   By 1978, GMC motorhome sales were in decline. As mentioned earlier, Oldsmobile was ready to redesign the Toronado. The decision whether or not to continue operating the mobile home was made by the accounting department. Although they initially saved money by using John Hall’s test data instead of conducting their own tests, the department did not see how the RV industry could be profitable in the future. GM closed the motorhome division with this result. Sometimes we like to speculate around the campfire about what the RV world would look like if GM had gone the other way. Will GM become a mega power in the RV industry like Thor Industries? Will they dominate the gasoline chassis sector, like the Ford F-53 chassis? Has the history of VR changed?

Food Truck to Bradley Tank: One Company Pioneers Classic Era Luxury Motorhomes (FMC)

Food Machinery Corporation (FMC) began in 1883 when inventor John Bean developed the insecticide pump. Then they went into canning and worked as military contractors developing amphibious vehicles. The impact on the history of VR was short but profound. When Vietnam ended and military contracts dried up, FMC decided to venture into RVs and produce a luxury class A motorhome. From 1973 to 1976, the 29-foot aluminum masterpiece was mounted on a custom chassis or an Oldsmobile Toronado chassis (depending on the year). He used an independent suspension inspired by European design to provide the owners with maximum driving comfort. Attention to detail was so essential that the interior walls of the cabinets were carpeted to reduce street noise. By comparison, the FMC was the Newmar King Aire of its day. During the active production years, a buyer would spend as much money as they would for a residential home to acquire one of the first rental villas on the street. In 1973, the starting price was $27,000 ($160,000 in 2021), but later models have gone up to $54,000 ($250,000 in 2021) and above. Owning one of these beauties told the world that you belonged to the masses. People like Carol Burnett, Clint Eastwood, James Brolin and Mario Andretti have had a CMF in their driveway. In 1976, production of motorhomes ceased and the company was able to begin building the Bradley tank platform. Today, the company specializes in agriculture, chemicals and mining.

RV history is made – Thor buys Airstream

Mjolnir forging with silver bullets

In 1980, Airstream was in trouble. The 1970s was a disastrous decade for the iconic brand. When Wally Byam died in 1962 at the age of 66, the company was never the same again. In a market looking for lightweight caravans with the latest innovations, Airstream was always a day late and a dollar short. New caravans and motorhomes were not for sale. Recognizing this, Wade Thompson and Peter Ortwein purchased Airstream in 1980 – a major acquisition in RV history. As a result of this groundbreaking purchase, Thor Industries was founded. This acquisition marked a new way of doing business in the RV industry. This saved the Airstream company and allowed it to concentrate on what it did best: Building transporters. As parent company, Thor Industries will manage the business and focus on restoring profitability. In the following decades, Thor continued to acquire RV and bus companies to expand its business. Subsidiaries will benefit from sharing innovations, supply chains and other factors. In 1984, Thor Industries was listed on the New York Stock Exchange (THO) and Forbes magazine named the company one of the top 200 small companies in America, cementing its place in RV history.

Toyota attempts to gain unexpected market share in the US truck market

After the 1973 oil embargo, Toyota began to make a name for itself in the American car market. However, they had a four-cylinder Hilux pickup that American buyers largely ignored. The last time Americans saw a pickup with 100 horsepower was in 1948, it was the Ford F-100 pickup with a 239 cubic inch flathead V8. Since Toyota found it difficult to enter the truck market directly, it decided to take an indirect approach. The automaker has partnerships with companies like RV :

  • Chinook
  • Coachman
  • Dolphin
  • Huntsman
  • National
  • Winnebago

Toyota has developed a concept that allows the camper to be permanently mounted on the Hilux pickup. The automaker described it as a micro-minicamper, ideal for one or two campers. It was easy to maneuver wherever you went, and the cab had full access to the bus. If that sounds familiar, it’s because the Toyota concept was one of the first examples of a C-class motorhome. In the late 1960s and early 1970s, manufacturers began offering Class C motorhomes as a smaller alternative to the Class A versions. Van manufacturers built this new class on the chassis of pickups and vans, as they do today. The Toyota chassis offered fuel economy and the same comfort in a smaller size. The chassis of the Hilux RV (from which the Tacoma evolved) got modest mileage until the 1990s. Many of them are still working today. There are Toyota micro-mini motorhome clubs all over the United States. Toyota’s camper may not have broken all records, but it has an enthusiastic fan base that has helped the automaker enter the truck market. RV history has been repeating itself lately, as news of the rebirth of the Chinook motorhome has been making headlines.

Roadtrek and Pleasure-Way bring VR out of the shadows

In the classic era, Class C motorhome manufacturers offered motorhomes with and without an upper floor. Today we consider the dented versions of the lofts to be part of the B-Plus class, but they were essentially the C-Class without the nose. Class B motorhomes existed, but were rarely seen. Sportsmobile was one of the few major manufacturers still assembling Ford Econoline, Chevy G-Series, Dodge Ram Van and VW Kombi vans. In 1980, Jac Hahnemeyer, a Dutch immigrant living in Ontario, Canada, founded Roadtrek. His motivation came after building his motorhome based on a 1974 Dodge Ram van, in which he and his family could live comfortably during his adventures. In 1986, RV dealer Merv Rumpel in Saskatchewan, Canada, had a similar idea for a Class B motorhome. He set up an independent workshop at the rear of his dealership to assemble his Pleasure Way motorhomes. In that first year, he and his team produced their first ten models using a Dodge Ram van. Both companies were successful in their early years. Both vans could be seen on local highways and campgrounds in the 1980s and the neoclassical era (1990-2007), even before European-style vans exploded the B-Class. At the time, automakers were making van conversions that confused the public. This set Roadtrek and Pleasure-Way apart from what the big three offered. The vans had a back seat that turned into a queen-size bed, captain’s chairs in the second row, a separate radio, a small ceiling-mounted television, and a VCR in the more expensive versions. Roadtrek and Pleasure-Way offered all the features of Class A or C motorhomes, but were downsized to fit in the cargo space of a full-size van. Both companies sold well, but they were ahead of their time. America always wanted size and space. Today, European parent company Rapido Group added the Roadtrek to its family of motorhomes. Pleasure-Way is still in business and offers a large selection of RVs.

Taking stock of the classic era and looking to the future

The classic era is when the RV industry became a real economic force. John Hanson’s idea to establish a Winnebago production line during the Vintage era (1945-1970) paved the way for smaller RV brands to establish themselves as major manufacturers. Construction methods have been standardized and refined. Technological innovation has grown out of economic and political challenges, rather than inhibiting the sector. The neoclassical era (1990-2007) will examine how the industry has made great progress through innovation. This era was marked by the invention of the retractable side panel and ended with a financial crisis that wiped out almost the entire RV industry. Traveling in an SUV became less safe when the internet and wireless technology became practical on the road. The leisure vehicle sector has shifted further towards US companies. Until next time, try answering these questions (without looking) to begin your introduction to neoclassicalism.

Best Time for Chain Pickerel Fishing (Season & Time of Day)

In May, we wrote a post on Best Time for Chain Pickerel Fishing (Season & Time of Day) . This time we will focus on the best time of day to catch a Chain Pickerel. For a day on the water to be productive, the weather has to offer a fair amount of visibility and be warm enough to avoid the fish getting too chilled. So, what time of day has the best chance of meeting these criteria? We’ll let you know!

The best time to go for chain pickerel fishing can vary depending on a number of factors like the weather and the location. So, before making your next fishing trip, be sure to check the exact time of day in your area.

Thicker than most northern pike, chain pickerel range in length from five to 10 pounds and may grow as large as 25 pounds when they reach adulthood. The thick, bony scales on both sides of the fish’s head help to protect the fish during its quest for food, while the bony plates on the body and tail help to make the fish hard to grasp as it swims in the water column.. Read more about how to catch chain pickerel fishing planet and let us know what you think.word-image-5568 Many anglers catch fighting fish by targeting bass, but if you know when to catch this tooth-like fish, you can have a lot more fun. Pike fishing can be great all year round, but it’s important to know the best time of year and when to fish for pike. Chainworm fishing is best in the summer and winter, when the chainworms are sinking deeper, and late evening before sunset is usually the best time. Early morning, from sunrise to 2 hours after sunset, is also good. In this article you will learn what the best times of the year and the best days are to catch big chain pike, both on the ice and in open water. Too many anglers ignore or try to avoid these undervalued fish, but in my opinion that is a mistake. Walleye is one of my favorite fish and I want to share this passion with others. For a complete list of the best tips I’ve researched and field tested for fishing for chain worms, check out this list of 27 tips for fishing for chain worms I’ve written.

Best time of year to fish for walleye

Chain pickerel can be caught effectively all year round, but there are definitely certain times of the year that are better than others. I have found that pike fishing in early summer and winter are the best seasons. In summer and winter, pike migrate to deeper water in search of more pleasant, oxygenated water full of baitfish. Deep water contains water that is colder or warmer than shallow water, depending on the season. In the winter, for example, when the surface water may be frozen, the deeper waters are much warmer and more suitable for catfishing. In the summer, however, when temperatures can reach 80 or even 90 degrees, the water is much cooler at 15 feet. During these two seasons you have the best chance to catch a big walleye. Walleye reside in narrow, outward-facing cover to lure baitfish, crappie and other species into the trap. They will also be around the water lilies in the summer looking for frogs. Expect to see pike in 8 to 20 feet of water in the summer and 10 to 25 feet in the winter along grasses (underwater and above ground), sunken woods and deep rocks. Good tip: Catch the fish when the frogs are most active. During the warmer months, pike target frogs and are most active when they are present.

Seasonal guide for chain pickers

Let’s take a look at how and when you can catch a piker in any season.


Winter is my favorite time of year to fish for walleye because I am an avid ice fisherman. Walleye fishing on the ice is excellent. Whether you are using spin baits or jigs, these fish can be an excellent target to catch. January and February are more favourable than December because that’s when the pike burn most of their fat reserves and start looking for food to get them through the winter. In winter, the best time of day to fish for pike is in the early and late evening, from about 1pm until sunset. Personally, I have yet to find a good nighttime snack for winter biters. Mornings can be good too, but I recommend daytime. Use live or dead natural bait. Bluefin tuna, suckers, shad or sunfish (if legal) are your best bet. If you decide to use bait, try to move as little as possible. Slow and progressive movements. Few things underwater move quickly or sporadically in very cold water. It is better that a cucumber looks natural and moves less. For a complete guide to chain fishing in sub-zero temperatures, check out this helpful article I wrote that has helped many anglers catch more chain fish in the winter. Good tip: If you find submerged vegetation in water deeper than 10 feet, you can be sure that there are good pikeminnow fish. Even if the vegetation is rotten, it will hold baitfish and pike.


Spring fishing can be very good, especially late in the season. The brood will use up most of its energy in the spring, preventing it from feeding. Walleye are attracted to the berries of the northern lakes in early spring, as that is when the weeds begin to grow earliest. These northern bays warm up first and attract lots of baitfish and game. In late spring, weeds will grow and emerge quickly. Look for the thickest and nastiest grassy shrubs near open water. Big zander stalk their prey and frogs. In the spring I consider late evening the best time of day to fish for pike, from two hours before sunset until dusk. It can also be quite a morning, especially late in the season. Good tip: Baitfish such as pike, minnows, shad, alder and suckers are the best spring baits for pike and perch.


Walleye fishing is generally very good during the summer months. Walleye love weeds, and aquatic vegetation is abundant in most rivers and lakes during the summer. You’ll find the pike on the deepest edges of dense grass or lily pads where the biggest baitfish are. If you can find good herbs along the main points of the lake, these are the best places. The best time of day in the summer to fish for pike is early in the morning, from sunrise to 2 hours after sunrise, and late at night, from sunset to sunset. These are my best fish windows. The activity of the frogs will determine when the activity of the walleye is at its peak. If your lake has lots of frogs, walleyes feed on them during the summer. Concentrate on lures that imitate frogs, trolls, bass and shad. This is the food the walleye eats in summer. Concentrate on the frogs and the trolls. Bait and live bait work equally well. You can cover most waters with this bait. Good tip: Chain trout are abundant in parts of the main lake where there is weed or sunken wood.


Autumn is an interesting time for migratory fishing. Most anglers are more concerned with hunting deer or catching walleyes in the fall, but walleyes are actively eating to put on weight for the winter. If you find fish with a rising bait, you will inevitably find perch, catfish, pike and pike fishing. Forget the frogs after August. From September to the end of October, look for baitfish only. Crayfish can also be very good in early fall. In the fall, the best time of day to fish for pike is early morning, from sunrise to 2 hours after sunrise. You can catch a piker in deep water when the bait bank sinks into the water column late in the day. In my opinion, November is the hardest month of the year for walleye fishing. Perch are much harder to find and catch now. They often go deep and sail around bumps or deep rocks. Good tip: Unless you have a boat with good electronics to find pike in deep water, you’re going to be hunting in November, not fishing for pike. It’s just been a rough month. word-image-5569

How weather affects walleye fishing

Weather can have a big impact on walleye fishing. Technically, it can have a significant effect on all fish species. Fluctuating weather patterns cause significant changes in fish behavior. If you’re in the middle of a hot, dry spell, fishing will be good. However, when a storm is approaching, breaking the monotony of the weather, it forces the piker to feed aggressively, especially before the storm. The low pressure associated with the hours before a storm is the best time to fish for pike. Colder temperatures and less sunlight are forcing pike to leave the dense vegetation and look for baitfish. Chain pickerel have good low light visibility, giving them a tactical advantage over most baitfish. During the rain, pike fishing can be good, but if it keeps raining, it gradually deteriorates. When it rains, fish with noisy lures like spinning rods or jerkbaits that will attract pike amid the noise of the rain. Fishing will be slower after rain or when a cold front passes. The bass are on the bottom and only eat when the bait touches their lips. Fish with bottom jigs, drop shots and even non-rigs. Live bait is always good for walleye, especially after a cold front. Synopsis: It is best to fish before a weather change or a few hours before an approaching storm. Fish them with moving baits like crankbaits or swimbaits that cover a lot of water.

Best time of day for walleye fishing

The best time to catch chainworm is late at night, from 2 hours before sunset until dusk or in the hours before the first thunderstorm during summer weeks. Walleye are most active in low light and when the frogs are most active. If the frogs are feeding intensely on insects as the sun goes down, you can bet a pike is watching them, waiting for one to sneak up on them.

Season Best time of day
Winter From early to mid afternoon until sunset.
Spring Late afternoon (especially in late spring)
Summer In the late afternoon, when the frogs are most active.
Autumn Early morning/late evening September and October

Night chain pike fishing

Many anglers can reliably catch a pike at night, especially in the summer. Chain pickerel can be very active in the dark, especially during the full moon. The full moon shows the silhouette of the frogs in the sky. When the bugs are out and the frogs are active, the walleye will certainly eat after sunset. The phase of the moon can have a big influence on the activity of pike. The night of the new moon is also a good time to fish for pike. But quarter moons are generally the worst nights for pike and bass fishing. Cloudy nights around the full moon can also affect fishing. To catch a zander at night, fish with surface baits like poppers, frogs and even senkos. The bass will be on the surface looking for baitfish and frogs. Live bait caught near vegetation can also be very strong at night. Good tip: When the frogs are very active after sunset, fishing for pike can be very hot, especially during full and new moons.

Cloudy and cloudy Pikeperch fishing

Cloudy and overcast days are ideal for chain pike fishing. On sunny days, the piker has to crawl against the ceiling to get some shade. But the diminished light of the cloudy sky makes the grasshoppers come out of hiding and hunt for moving prey. Cucumbers can see very well in low light and will look for baitfish and frogs. I recommend fishing pikers on cloudy days with moving baits. Rods, swimbaits, umbrella A-rigs, jerkbaits and spinners are all excellent options. A good frog on high water is also very good. The poles are a little harder to spot because they are not attached to the vegetation where shade prevails.Chain pickerel fishing is a sport known for its patience and understanding. The fish are known for their intelligence and cunning. They never take the bait, but lead you to their nest. They are a challenging fish to catch, requiring patience and persistence.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best time to fish for pickerel?

To catch pickerel, you’ll want to target water temperatures of at least 60F. Pickerel are active during the day and seek shelter at night. They tend to be shy so try to find them in deeper water. Anglers who are new to pickerel fishing often fish after sunset for their first few attempts, but you may want to try fishing at other times. In the spring and summer, there is no “best time” for pickerel fishing. The chain pickerel is one of the best coldwater fish known to man. In fact, it was so good that it was chosen to be the state fish of Indiana, Michigan and Wisconsin. It is a small fish that can be caught in lakes and ponds throughout the United States, and was described as the state fish of Wisconsin because of its abundance in the state.

What is the best bait for chain pickerel?

The chain pickerel is a small freshwater fish that can be found in the waters of North America, and the United States. It is closely related to the American pickerel, but can be easily distinguished by its deep-webbed dorsal fin and distinctive head markings. The chain pickerel is a popular species of fish for fishing enthusiasts, and is often found in the water during the summer months. The chain pickerel is a fish that lives in the southern part of Canada, the United States and Mexico. If you live in or visit any of those areas, you should be able to catch them with a good cast-and-haul rig. They are schooling fish, so where you live is just one of the many factors that affect when you can expect to catch them.

Can you catch pickerel in the winter?

This time of year seems to be fraught with questions about how to catch pickerel in the winter. There are so many opinions out there, it is hard to know what to believe. What I can say for certain is that you can catch pickerels all year long, although most people think of them as a spring and fall fishery. Springtime is a great time for catch and release fishing. In the fall, the hatching of summer fish species is in full swing, and the fish will be full of energy and will often move quickly, making them a no-capture fishery. After an interesting winter run, a group of fisherman headed to the pond to see what is was that caught their attention on the ice. For a couple days, they had been hearing flapping sounds, but when they finally got up to the pond, they were astonished to see something that wasn’t supposed to be there.

2022 Toyota Land Cruiser Engines Leak and There’s No V8 in Sight

Toyota is denying rumors of a V8-powered Land Cruiser at this year’s New York Auto Show, which will be held next week. The company has confirmed that there will be no V8-powered Land Cruiser, saying there are no plans to change that policy at this time. When asked about rumors of a V8-powered model, Toyota’s Jim Lentz said, “We’re not going to provide an engine that’s different from the current engine and higher price.”

After two decades of production, the Toyota Land Cruiser was on its way out, right around the time that a new generation of sport-utility vehicles was emerging. The Camry, Corolla and the Honda CR-V would all come with V8 engines, while the Land Cruiser’s V6 was an obvious weak spot. The earliest L-series engines were potent and thirsty, but in the mid-2000s, they quickly became underpowered and broken. Toyota tried to fix those problems with V8 engines, but in time, they became even more broken. As a result, Toyota sold the Land Cruiser off in 2011, just two years after producing its last V8. That meant that the last Land Cruiser engine was made in 2007;

The Toyota Land Cruiser (or the L-Series) is a highly popular SUV, best known in the U.S. by its military version, the 4Runner. But did you know that Toyota has been developing a more rugged and capable model in its homeland of Japan? Now, if today’s 2015 model was indeed the “X” model for the U.S. market, then it should be called the “XJ” to match the XJ in Europe. But for the U.S., the XJ seems like it will be renamed to the “CJ”—after a real world, and not just a car model.. Read more about toyota land cruiser 2022 and let us know what you think.The arrival of the 2022 Toyota Land Cruiser should be just around the corner, if recent sightings are to be believed. While we got a detailed look at the exterior of this SUV, what lies under the hood remains a mystery. However, a recently leaked document claims to know exactly what the next generation Land Cruiser will be equipped with. This latest leak comes to us from land.cruiser.300 on Instagram via Motor1. In short, the leak claims that we have official information about the two engines that will be available when this iconic model makes its debut. Needless to say, we will have to wait for Toyota to confirm this leak.

What engines will the 2022 Toyota Land Cruiser be equipped with?

word-image-5585 Toyota Land Cruiser Since the 2022 Toyota Land Cruiser is coming relatively soon, let’s cut to the chase. It will have two engine options under the hood, neither of which is a V8. The first is a 3.3-liter diesel engine with 302 hp and 516 lb-ft, according to a leak. The second engine for the 2022 Toyota Land Cruiser is a 3.5-liter turbocharged gasoline engine rated at 409 hp and 480 lb-ft. If we had to guess, this 3.5-liter engine could be inspired by some of the engines we’ve seen in various Lexus models. By comparison : The previous 5.7-liter V8 delivered 381 hp and 401 lb-ft. As a result, the new engines should offer significantly more power. However, the real improvement is the increase in torque, the most important parameter for off-road driving.

Why is there no V8 under the hood of this SUV?

APPROPRIATE: The 2021 Toyota Land Cruiser is having a banner year: Sales increase of 200% in the first quarter As you might have guessed, the Japanese automaker has not confirmed these leaks about the 2022 Toyota Land Cruiser. One wonders why the company decided to drop the V8. The first and most obvious is the increased power of the new engines. Because they are more compact six-cylinders, they are lighter but have considerably more power. The second main reason is probably efficiency. The 5.7-liter V8 under the hood of the current Land Cruise is indestructible, but pretty old. As a result, this engine would likely not have met the more stringent global emissions standards. The dream of a Land Cruiser with a V8 engine is not dead yet. According to Motor1, Toyota is developing a twin-turbo V8 for future Lexus models like the LC-F. Putting a high-performance engine in an SUV may seem redundant, but the Land Cruiser’s base price certainly justifies it.

When will the 2022 Toyota Land Cruiser be available?

word-image-5586 Toyota Land Cruiser The 2022 Toyota Land Cruiser was supposed to make its debut this spring. However, the release of the model was subsequently delayed. Therefore, there is no official timetable yet for the world premiere date. However, if the number of leaks has increased, the official debut could be imminent. One thing we know for sure, though: It will not be marketed in the US.The question of whether Toyota’s turbo-diesel V-8 will make a return to the Land Cruiser never really went away. Rumors of an impending V-8 have been around for years. Then, in 2016, Toyota made a minor announcement stating it had a V-8 in the works. Rather than a true V-8, the vehicle in question was a turbo-diesel V-6. But, a year later, Toyota’s website still had the same page stating the exact same thing..

Easy Baked Freshwater Fish

Baked fish is one of those things that doesn’t need to be complicated. If you have the right ingredients, it doesn’t take much to turn out a great fish dish. But the truth is that simple isn’t always easy—especially when you’re baking fish. And you’re certainly not going to get a dish that looks like the ones you’ll find in restaurant kitchens!

Baked fish is easy and really good. It’s also an excellent technique for teaching kids about the benefits of nutrition and healthy cooking. This fish is baked in a foil pan on the grill to seal in the natural moisture, which keeps the fish moist(er) and keeps the fish from sticking to the pan. The result is a delicious and very healthy dish that your whole family will enjoy.

For some, fishing is an escape from reality. You get away from the business of the rest of the world while enjoying the serenity of nature. Additionally, sport fishing provides a wonderful sense of accomplishment. Sometimes, however, we forget the simple pleasures of living in nature, such as spending time outdoors with nature and enjoying the sights and sounds of the outdoors.

Recipe courtesy of Sarah and Jay Kozlowski. Have you ever wanted to change your usual recipe for preparing fish? In all the Great Lakes states, including our home state of Wisconsin, people love a good fish fry. But fried fish is a tasty option to transform your freshwater catch that is often overlooked, and frankly, seriously underrated. If you have a bag of fish or nice walleye fillets, we have a quick and delicious recipe to prepare your catch and add to your kitchen arsenal. Route description First, preheat oven to 375° F. Rinse skinless fillets (fresh or thawed) under cold water, pat dry with paper towels, and place in a 9×13 glass baking dish or on a foil-lined baking sheet. Now the fun part begins, because you can customize the recipe by adding spices to your own taste. From Creole to Cajun to Southwestern to citrus and pepper, you can customize this basic recipe. We’ve included our favorite dishes in this version, but feel free to improvise. By the way: If you saved our recipe for wild canola powder from last spring in Outdoor News Taste of the Wild, it’s also a great seasoning! Just sprinkle the herbs over the fish fillets, with : Lemon pepper Garlic powder Onion powder Squeeze fresh lemon juice Creole spice powder (or your favorite spice) Salt and ground pepper to taste. (Note that many spice blends contain salt, so keep that in mind before adding them to a dish). Up here: 2-4 tablespoons butter (cut into pieces, put on the fish) Slice half of the yellow onion and place on top of the seasoned fillets. For a full pan of fish or smaller, thinner fillets, a cooking time of about 15 minutes is recommended. For walleye or larger, thicker fillets, it is recommended to wait about 25 minutes. It is not necessary to turn the fillets during cooking. The fish is done when the flesh can be easily removed with a fork. A tip from the kitchen: Omit the lemon pepper and use lime instead of lemon, sprinkle liberally with Chipolte Southwestern Spice Mix and use the cooked fish in fish tacos. word-image-5665 To the authors: Sarah and Jay Kozlowski are originally from Hayward, Wisconsin.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is it better to bake fish covered or uncovered?

In the summer and early fall, the water temperature in the lakes and ponds you fish will most likely be above 70 degrees. Since the water temperature will be above 70 degrees, the fish in them will also be at the upper end of their normal range. This means that the fish will be in their most active state, which means that they will be on the move trying to find food. This is the perfect time to throw in a dough ball of bread at the end of your cast and let it float right into the hot water of your favorite lake or pond. For many campers, it’s easy to forget that the water in our lakes and rivers is just as rank as the water in our shower drains. Bacteria thrive in these waters and can make you sick, but getting rid of nasty-smelling fish poop is another story. So how do you handle catfish poop? You can use the same methods you would use for other types of fish, but there is one way that is more trouble than it’s worth.

What kind of fish is good for baking?

So you want to know what kind of fish to buy for baking? Here’s a list of the best ones for baking. Many people come to the outdoors for fun, recreation, and relaxation. However, with the ever-increasing popularity of the outdoors, many of us find ourselves in the unfortunate situation of having to eat fish that was caught in the wild. It’s important to know the difference between sustainable and unsustainable fish, the differences between fish that are new and fish that are old, and which fish to avoid.

How long does it take to cook freshwater fish?

When it comes to cooking fish, there are few recipes that are as widely-used as baked fish. This is because the baked fish has a lower water content than the raw fish, so it is more digestible, as well as being easier to handle. Moreover, it tastes less fishy than the raw fish. There are a lot of different types of freshwater fish that are commonly considered good to eat. But how long does it take to cook them?

SpaceX Starlink and RVers Frequently Asked Questions

Questions are welcome, so please email us at campingfieldguide@gmail.com if you have any questions about the RVing with Tesla and SpaceX Starlink Hotel.

The launch of the Starlink satellite network has been beset by delays, and some satellite owners are now looking at alternative options. One of the biggest issues that has been keeping companies from using the Starlink network is the multi-year delay in the launch of the network’s first satellite. The first launch, of the network’s first 1,000-satellite constellation, is still scheduled to take place in 2020, two years after SpaceX’s first Starlink satellite, the 3,500-pound “Starlink-1,” was deployed from the International Space Station on March 14.

If you’re a space buff or a would-be asteroid miner, the Internet is abuzz with news of SpaceX’s ambitious plan to create a constellation of nearly 12,000 satellites that will blanket the Earth with wireless Internet access. While this sounds like a good idea in theory, it has raised concerns about privacy and other potential issues, so what’s the truth? In this blog post I will attempt to explain the current status of Starlink, and what you need to know to make an educated decision if you’re considering you own your own satellite.

Many of those who switched to remote working last year have found a way to work from their vans. Looking for a good internet connection on the road, many drivers are turning to SpaceX’s Starlink service. Elon Musk’s $74 billion company SpaceX has big ambitions. They have created the world’s first reusable rocket that can land autonomously. This achievement has reduced the cost of launching rockets into space by millions of dollars. It is estimated that SpaceX could perform a commercial launch with a 22-ton payload for about $36 million. In terms of books, it is the cheapest raw material in the world. Reusable rockets are just part of the company’s efforts. In recent years, they have been putting small satellites into low Earth orbit. The purpose of these satellites is to set up a global satellite internet service called Starlink. Currently, SpaceX has more than 1,000 Starlink satellites in low Earth orbit.

Many drivers not only know that it is a type of internet, but are also interested in the SpaceX Starlink service and want to know what it is. First, Starlink is different from the internet you get from WiFi in a parking lot or from cell phones. The RV park’s WiFi relies on a system of routers located in the park, and your smartphone’s internet comes from cell towers on the land. SpaceX Starlink is a satellite-based Internet service, so it is not limited to terrestrial infrastructure. Many people drive their RVs, fifth wheels or other off-road vehicles to remote camping areas with little or no cellular reception. Thanks to a global satellite system, you don’t have to wait for a mobile phone mast to appear in the most remote areas. If you often find yourself with a campervan out of range of the mobile network, there are options for internet via satellite, but these are slow and expensive. Starlink promises cheaper services, faster speeds, better bandwidth and lower latency than many terrestrial options in remote areas.

Lower time limit

Latency is a measure of the time it takes for your computer to send a signal to the Internet and receive a response. A recent article in RV Life explains how SpaceX Starlink achieves incredibly low latency. With traditional satellite internet, your receiver sends a signal to a satellite 23,000 km away. The satellite sends a signal 23,000 miles away to a physical location on earth that provides your internet. Once the website receives the correct data, it leaves for a 46,000 mile journey to you. It takes all those light waves to travel 90,000 miles. On average, this time is between 550 and 650 milliseconds. Life on wheels Image Source: Ghost word-image-5669 Six hundred milliseconds may not seem like a lot of time to react, but activities like streaming, video calling, and gaming can suffer. You may not be a gamer, but many first-time travelers are, and even the latency offered by many wireless carriers exceeds 200ms. First-person shooter games can be unplayable at speeds above 100ms. The following RV Life article explains how SpaceX Starlink is different. Since Starlink internet satellites are only about 340 miles above the earth, their latency is much lower. Each satellite is not only closer, but is also equipped with lasers to relay information to nearby Starlink satellites, allowing for faster response. Elon Musk recently tweeted that Starlink’s response time will be reduced to 20ms by 2021. This is very important for those who depend on low latency when surfing the Internet.

Enhanced bandwidth

In conventional satellite internet, a satellite the size of a bus is placed in geostationary orbit around the earth and is responsible for a huge area. This one satellite serves many different connections. It is not uncommon for these satellites to be on standby. When this happens, users have to wait for their data to be processed and sent, resulting in an even slower connection. Starlink will have thousands of satellites capable of transmitting data. So SpaceX Starlink is not only fast, but can also handle a large number of users and more traffic (bandwidth).


According to this article in Camper Report, Starlink Internet currently offers speeds up to 300 Mbps, with a goal of reaching 1 Gbps. However, Starlink recently announced that it has set a new goal of reaching 10 Gbps. Gbps stands for gigabits per second.  10 Gbps is more than enough to stream a movie simultaneously for a small fleet of RVs. For digital nomads camping out in places with less than optimal service, these speeds can be a game changer.

According to the same Camper Report article, the Starlink isn’t quite ready for RV life until you start making room in your bays to house stuff. Currently you have to register it at a specific address and you can only access it from there. They mention that it can be used in tight spaces, but performance may suffer. However, there is hope for car travelers. The SpaceX Starlink team has long said the system needs to be more versatile. In late 2020, an AMA session was held on Reddit with Starlink engineers. The team stated: Mobility options – including moving your Starlink to other service addresses (or locations that don’t even have addresses!) – will be available as we are able to increase our coverage by launching more satellites and implementing new software. Since the SpaceX Starlink team made that observation, the range has increased significantly. We know that Starlink is within reach of campers, as the company just filed an application with the FCC for approval of a new mobile version of its ground-based devices called Earth Stations in Motion (ESIM). The RV Life article explains: Unlike current offerings, which are designed for stationary use, ESIMs, while electrically identical to current ground systems, will be installed on moving vehicles such as boats, planes, trucks and, of course, vans. With Starlink Internet, you can move the vehicle-mounted antennas from cell to cell and maintain communications on the road. This means you can access the internet in your van while camping and traveling. These new SpaceX Starlink dishes must be installed by professionals, according to the filing. While they are electrically identical, the brackets and some other aspects of the design will likely be slightly different from the UFO on a stick that their courts currently have.

If you already have Starlink for your home, you can ask if you can put an antenna in the storage space of your camper and go camping with it. Some people do well in places within 20 miles of their home, but that’s about it. However, with the advent of ESIM, this may no longer be the case. The following video is a review of Love Your VR’s Starlink service on YouTube. They tested it in places close to their homes to see how far they could go.   While it’s impossible to travel with the current version, an article on the Do It Yourself VR website suggests that unmounted versions could also go mobile. Remember, there are only so many Starlink satellites in the sky. Starlink must program a number of satellites to fly continuously over your area when you….. subscribes. This problem will be solved when there are enough satellites in the sky to cover all areas. Once this is done, Starlink must update its software to determine where it is, which Starlink satellites are in sight, and where to look for them. If they’re ready to start producing ESIM, that means they’ve probably solved both problems. There is speculation that they can update the current merchandise to fit anywhere. BRICOLAGE For many travelers, it’s as simple as packing the usual dinnerware in a trailer, camper, fifth wheel or RV and setting it up upon arrival at the campsite. If Starlink allows you to move your ground system from the existing cameras, that would certainly be the most beneficial option, which brings us to our next question.

How much does it cost?

It’s an ultra-fast internet connection that can theoretically be used anywhere you can see the sky, thanks to thousands of satellites. How much does it cost? The hardware currently costs $499 and the service $99 per month. That’s not so bad when you consider that a new smartphone costs between $400 and $1,000 and an unlimited subscription costs about $50 a month per line. Satellite internet is the cheapest and fastest. SpaceX Starlink has not yet released pricing information for its new mountable system. Considering you have to have it professionally installed, it will probably cost a little over $499. However, there is no reason to believe that the monthly cost of services will increase. Although the new system costs $1,000 per unit, it will still be cheaper than existing satellite Internet options for RVers. There are very few companies that offer satellite mobile internet, and they cost about $400 a month just for the service. Their speed is nowhere near as fast as Starlink’s.

One of the advantages of WiFi in parking lots or cellular plans over SpaceX Starlink is the ability to get service under trees. Many car travelers leave the suburbs or urban jungle to relax in the woods. As with satellite TV, Starlink antennas require a clear view of the sky. Because the SpaceX Starlink satellites are closer to Earth, their radius is relatively narrow. word-image-5670 If this is the right place for your RV, you may have problems connecting to Starlink. The Starlink team has some positive news on that front: You have to see the connection between the Starlink antenna and the satellite in space as a thin beam between the antenna and the satellite. So if the satellite is flying over quickly and there is a branch or pole between the antenna and the satellite, you will usually lose the connection. We are working on a number of software features that will greatly improve the situation and in the long run the tolerance required will decrease as the constellation grows. Then it will get better! Reddit AMA with Starlink Engineers Even if things improve, you’ll probably never be able to install Starlink under a dense tree cover. Another disadvantage of Starlink is the power consumption. While it’s easy to charge your phone with a solar panel while parked on land, SpaceX Starlink will require more than that. In the previously mentioned Do It Yourself RV article, it states: The Starlink satellite dish itself consumes about 100 watts. However, you also need enough watts to power your devices like laptops and phones. If the nearest campsite has electricity, you can go there. But if you go to the docks, you may need to bring your own. With a small inverter generator or a good solar installation, you can easily get up to a hundred watts of power, which is certainly in the realm of boondocking possibilities, but still more energy intensive than using cellular internet.

I like my current internet in the motorhome industry. Should I change if it is available?

It is up to you to decide whether to switch when it becomes available. This depends mainly on the type of construction of your motorhome. If you’re mostly on vacation and in places with adequate coverage, an unlimited plan may be more than enough to stream and meet your internet needs. According to Camper Report, many campgrounds are located in hard-to-reach areas such as mountains, desert and other unpopulated areas. You can get a mobile signal in many of these places, but it can be difficult to get good 5G, 4G or even 3G speeds in these areas. In other cases, you have many bars, but there is only one tower in the area, and everyone has to share it. It’s all the tourists and everyone in the surrounding towns trying to watch Netflix from the same tower at the same time. The result is a mediocre performance. I should add for myself that my wife and I are professionally connected to the internet. We live in our RV all the time and have found ourselves in situations more than once where our Verizon plan did not provide coverage. Most of the time we were at our perfect RV spot. I would benefit from dropping the mobile plan in favor of a cheaper plan with less data and buying Starlink when it becomes available to RVers. Ultimately, if you’re happy with your current plan, there’s probably no real reason to change. However, according to the article in Camper Report, for those who travel full time or spend a lot of time outdoors, an internet connection based solely on the view of the sky and not the infrastructure of transmission towers can mean the difference between having internet or not.

Frequently Asked Questions

The world’s first satellite internet service, Starlink, has been approved to launch this year. The satellite will beam internet down from geosynchronous orbit at a speed using LTE technology. The Starlink service will launch on a dedicated SpaceX rocket and will serve both the public and private sectors. (The government portion of the project has been delayed, and the first Starlink satellites will be launched in 2020.) For more than a decade, satellite internet company Starlink has been promising to bring affordable internet to rural areas. However, the FCC has recently passed a set of new rules that might make it difficult to provide satellite internet to rural areas. This is because, under the new rules, the FCC allows satellite companies to use “Earth-to-space” transmissions (known as “geostationary orbit”) exclusively for their own operations. So, if Starlink wants to bring satellite internet to rural areas, it will have to use ground-based transmissions (known as “non-geostationary orbit”), which are less reliable. This means it will be difficult for Starlink to provide internet to all of the rural regions that it wants to.

SpaceX is really hyping up the Starlink internet satellite system like it’s going to be a game changer for people who want to get out there and enjoy the great outdoors. Will it be? Truthfully, there’s really no way of telling at this point, and the majority of the information out there on the topic is coming from SpaceX. But, as with all things internet, there will be people who will use it for nefarious purposes, so this is going to be an issue for everyone, unless this project is a complete failure and doesn’t deliver as SpaceX is claiming. SpaceX successfully launched a Falcon 9 rocket into orbit to deliver a satellite constellation for global internet access and communications. The launch was in conjunction with the US Defense Department. It’s the first time that SpaceX has launched a satellite-constellation system. The satellites will be in low-Earth orbit and will provide a robust, secure and reliable global internet service, allowing users to connect to the internet from anywhere, anytime.

In the past week the price of Starlink has gone up by $10 to $36.99 a month, with the latest price increase coinciding with a doubling in the number of satellites the satellites are expected to carry. Starlink satellites are headed to orbit in the first half of 2020, with the full constellation to be operational in the second half of the year. At that point, the company plans to offer a limited “Starlink Internet Service,” which will offer speeds of 5-12Mbps in rural areas that don’t have good download speeds, but will depend on a user’s location and their data usage. The company says the service will be “limited to speeds of 5-12Mbps,” but doesn’t specify how much that means You have probably heard that Tesla CEO Elon Musk has a plan for satellite internet, called Starlink, that is supposed to deliver 1Gb/s download speeds to the entire world. Very few details are available about how this might work, and these details are slowly being made available. In recent weeks, SpaceX sent a Falcon 9 rocket to the International Space Station on a cargo resupply mission. The rocket carried several test payloads, including one called Starlink, that will be disassembled during the flight and will not survive landing.

8 Best Bowfishing Bows of 2021

Bowfishing has undergone a revolution in the last couple of years, with new bows, new accessories and new technologies. The old days of the big wood bows in the backcountry are over, as new materials and technologies are making it possible to go bowfishing without the bulk and weight of traditional bows. And they work well.

Choosing the right bowfishing bow can be an overwhelming task. Bowfishing is a specialized sport for the serious hunter, and the bows that are best for bowfishing are typically less forgiving and more expensive. Because of this, you may be wondering if you’re better off with a traditional crossbow or you should consider a bowfishing bow.

This guy is a bowfisherman, and he uses a bowfishing bow. The ten best bows in the world are all over the internet, but I think this guy’s is the best. While the rest of the bows are all carbon fiber, he uses a wood and fiberglass bow. The high quality wooden handles are finished in an attractive walnut. The fiberglass limbs are wrapped in waterproof Mylar to keep them dry when it pours. There’s a nice curve to the limbs, and he’s got a nice hand grip to fit a variety of hands. He’s got a few other kits, too; you can check out his website, bowfishingbow.com.

Why it is important to buy a quality bow for bowfishing

word-image-5631 Unlike traditional archery, archery is a game with multiple shots. Even a good day on the water can result in 30, 40 or even more shots. An inferior bow will not do. It would be too heavy to carry for hours. This prevents you from getting the quick, instinctive shots you need. It breaks down long before it’s meant to, maybe even in the middle of a trip. Lower quality onions may be cheaper at first, but they will cost you more in the long run.

Customer advisory service: How to choose a bow

word-image-5632 Do a quick search online and you will see that there are many options for bows and equipment for bow fishing. Before choosing a bow, it is important to know which features or specifications are important and which are just for show. You should be able to find the setting that works best for you. First, what kind of fish are you going to target? The species most commonly hunted by anglers are carp, catfish, paddlefish and catfish in freshwater and sharks and rays in saltwater. You need to make sure your bow is heavy enough to successfully take down the types of animals you may encounter. Make sure you are aware of local regulations before getting on the water. Each state has specific rules about what species may be hunted with the bow and when.


word-image-5633 You don’t need a lot of equipment to get started, but you don’t need the best either. Many beginners start with used or refurbished hunting equipment. They do their job, but over time most anglers improve them.


word-image-2755 The first thing to do when buying a bow for archery is to forget almost everything you learned about choosing a traditional bow. Speed and power are not that important when bow fishing. Traditional hunting requires a towing weight of 50, 60 or even 70 pounds. In the rack, you can do without, since you’ll only be pulling the bow two or three times a day. A higher draw weight is also required to achieve penetrating power over longer distances. This is not the case with archery. These are close-ups. Their targets do not have thick fur and heavy wool. A towing weight of 35 to 50 pounds is sufficient in most situations. Almost any type of arch is suitable, but each has its own advantages and disadvantages: Curves word-image-5634 This is the most common type of bow used by anglers. The traditional design may be outdated in the field by modern yacht arches, but on the water it feels right at home. They are simple and easy to use and allow you to shoot quickly and accurately, even if you are unable to perform a full flight. Fewer moving parts mean less maintenance and lower costs in the long run. Recurves, however, are longer, making them easier to maneuver on a boat or when chasing the shore. They also lack the separating power of joints, requiring less force to pull fully. This means you have to fight with your full draw weight on every shot. Connections word-image-5635 These bows are most commonly used by traditional hunters, but they are also popular with fishermen. They are easily identified by the pulls, or lugs, at the end of each link. The lugs help the shooter pull the heavier bows, and the bows themselves are shorter than the recurves. The latter is a definite advantage when sailing around a crowded boat or following an overgrown shoreline. However, the first option may be less advantageous. Although the trigger makes it easier to pull the string, it hinders the ability to make quick, accurate shots, which is common in bow fishing. Fortunately, manufacturers have realized the different needs of bow anglers and have adapted their designs accordingly. The new compound models, designed specifically for archery, have a lower trigger pull and the ability to shoot without pulling the trigger. Crossbows word-image-5636 Crossbows are becoming increasingly popular, and some fishermen use them for archery. However, of the three types of bows available, these are the least suitable for bow fishing. On the positive side, a crossbow allows you to use one device for both fishing and hunting. They are also used as a rifle – with a trigger, safety and sight. This makes them easier to learn and master for beginners. However, these positive attributes are often offset by their weight, size and traction. They can be awkward to hold and uncomfortable to hold all day on a small, crowded ship. They are also slow to reload between shots, which limits your options for follow-up shots. Finally, there are very few manufacturers of crossbows or of accessories needed for bow fishing.


word-image-2756 You cannot use the same arrows for fishing as you can for hunting or target shooting. Bowfishing arrows are heavier and designed to withstand the stress of multiple shots on the river bottom in shallow water. They are also longer than regular arrows. Finally, they have no springs, as this would offer too much resistance when immersed in water.


word-image-5637 When you hunt, you need a razor-sharp point. They are designed to do massive damage, kill the animal quickly and recover easily. When you catch fish, you don’t have to kill them right away, but you should prevent them from escaping. The tips have a sharp point for penetration, but are not razor sharp. Instead, there are a number of large barbs that hold the fish in place and prevent it from releasing when you reel it in.


The reel you use when bowfishing holds the line between casts, releases the line when you pull, and sometimes helps reel in the line or fish after the shot. There are three basic types of reels for bow fishing: Drum word-image-5638 This is the round main coil attached to the bow. Although he holds the line until the shot is fired and assists in retrieving the line, he does not assist in the retrieval. There is no crank, so the line must be pulled by hand. Retriever Tracker word-image-5639 Also called a bottle retractor, this option looks like a plastic water bottle with a small crank on the front. Like the reel drum, it is attached to the bow when in use. The line left empty in the bottle pays off when the shot is fired. After the shot, the handle helps to retrieve the line and any submerged fish. This method is easier than hand over hand and is less likely to cause hand or finger injury. Spider reel word-image-2757 This option is almost identical to the closed face and button reels that many anglers have learned to fish with. Before firing, a button is pressed to release the line. When the shot is released, the line is unwound in the same manner as when casting with a rod and reel. After shooting, turn the handle to pull in the line and catch the fish, as if you were hooking the fish with a fishing pole. The adjustable pull tab provides better leverage when catching big fish and allows you to adjust the pull pressure to the type of shot. Specialized reels for bowfishing feature heavy-duty gears that can withstand the rigors of bowfishing and corrosion-resistant components for use in saltwater.


word-image-5640 Conventional fishing lines can be used for bow fishing, although most bow fishermen prefer a stronger, tougher, rope-like line. However, the type of line you use is partly determined by the type of spool you choose. Coils for drum or retriever require heavier lines. Thinner conventional lines would be difficult to hold in a bottle-shaped holder and could cause injury if touched. On spinning reels, conventional fishing line is always used because it would be too thick for the body of the reel. Whatever type of line you choose, it should be much heavier than if you were catching the same type of fish with a traditional rod and reel. Remember that without a rod, the line will bear all the weight when the fish is hooked.


While a bow, arrows, rods and fishing line are all you need to start fishing, they are not all you need to have the most productive or enjoyable day on the water. Here are a few things to add to your equipment list: Finger guard word-image-5641 You’ll be doing a lot of archery. Unlike hunting, you won’t be using the trigger (it’s not suitable for the quick, short shots you need). This means that unprotected fingers will eventually suffer. Wearing a glove, using a recording pad or placing the finger tabs on the strings makes playing much more comfortable. Rest for the shooter word-image-5642 A stop is necessary so that the arrow has a place to rest between shots and during the draw. If your arch does not have a built in fence, that will need to be installed. There are several types, and the choice depends on the characteristics of your arch and the manufacturer’s recommendations. Be careful if you try to reuse a standard hunting point for archery. They tend to cause dirt in the line, which can lead to injuries. Polarized glasses or flashlights word-image-5643 Successful archery requires the ability to see and identify the target. Anyone who has ever wanted to look a few inches into the water on a sunny day knows how difficult that can be. With polarized glasses, you can see what you want to photograph. Of course, you need to illuminate the target at night, so a bow-mounted flashlight or headlamp is just necessary. Many anglers with a boat go a step further and install multiple powerful lights that can illuminate a large area.

word-image-5644 Precision Shooting Equipment was founded in 1970 to improve the archery industry by manufacturing state-of-the-art equipment. Today, PSE is the largest privately held archery equipment company in the United States. The current production facility, test workshop and professional shop cover an area equivalent to one city block. From the beginning, PSE has been committed to producing equipment using the latest technologies and materials, and over the years PSE has developed many innovative products. PSE manufactures both high-end products for the professional archer and equally impressive economical products for everyday shooting.

Passionate about archery, he began making bow points out of necessity. He dreamed of demolishing the Cape Buffalo in Africa and then was not satisfied with the possibilities. He eventually succeeded in developing a revolutionary retractable point that revolutionized archery. Over time, the company has expanded its product line and Muzzy is now part of the FeraDyne Outdoors family, which manufactures even more products, including high-quality fishing bows.

Cajun Bowfishing

word-image-5646 Unlike most of its competitors, Cajun Bowfishing was not a traditional bow maker taking advantage of the growing popularity of bowfishing. They’ve been experts at bow fishing since the beginning. Founded in 1962, Cajun originally produced a renowned line of hardwood and cedar arrows for fishermen. In 1976 they bought the rights to the Sting-A-Bee bowfishing tip and added it to their line. Eventually they diversified and began to offer a wider range of products and accessories, including bows, string wax and tools for making bows. But they have always stayed true to their roots and continue to produce bowfishing equipment.


word-image-5647 Can I change an ordinary bow into an archery bow? Yes, converting a traditional bow to archery is the starting point of many anglers’ careers. Others do so because it allows them to use a bow year-round for traditional fishing and hunting. How can I keep my bow from sinking when I fish? A bow falling into the water is a fisherman’s worst nightmare. Not only does losing a bow ruin the rest of the trip, but many bows are too expensive to watch sink to the bottom of a lake or river. Unfortunately, there are few ways to avoid this nightmare. Some anglers use a bow sling, but it can be awkward to shoot and move in tight areas of the boat. Others make floats, often from foam pool noodles cut into small pieces and glued to the limbs. While this option may work, you will need to check your bow to make sure it shoots properly when adjusted.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best bow of 2021?

In the early 2020s, most of us will be using new technologies that will allow us to go to the ends of the Earth and explore every nook and cranny of our planet. So when it comes to travelling and hunting, the past decade has seen a lot of advancements in the worlds of hunting and fishing. The first bow I ever shot with was a traditional recurve. I was 10 years old and it was my dad’s. We shot a lot of banded mullet and bluegill that year. I never thought much about bows much after that, until a year later when I shot a compound for the first time. I was immediately hooked. I spent countless hours watching videos on YouTube. I was following every expert on the Internet. I read every book I could get my hands on. I was completely obsessed.

How To Properly Store Monofilament Fishing Line –

Monofilament fishing line is a type of line that has a monofilament core that is twisted into a knot to create the line. Monofilament fishing line is strong and knot-resistant, and it can be used to catch a wide variety of fish. Finding the right monofilament fishing line depends on your fishing activity and the type of fish you are targeting.

There are a few different ways to store your fishing line. You can use an old shoe box to store your line wrapped along the edge, which is fine for light line. As line gets heavier though, it will tangle, and possibly even warp, the box.

Any fisherman can tell you that the one thing you really need to worry about when it comes to fishing is . . . fishing line. You’ll need to properly store your line in order to keep it from tangling and getting wrapped around your sinker, or worse, cutting your fishing gear in half.. Read more about fishing line spool storage and let us know what you think.If you’re wondering about the best way to store monofilament fishing line out of season, unfortunately you won’t find it on the back of your fishing line spool. How do you properly store monofilament lines so they retain their maximum life? The best way to store monofilament thread is to put it in a container with a tight-fitting lid and put it in the freezer. This protects your monofilament fishing line against :

  • Sun
  • Warm temperatures
  • Abrasion
  • Humidity

I know what you must be thinking right now. …. Freezer ? It’s crazy! But it could be so crazy that it works! Let me explain why storing monofilament fishing line in the freezer is the best way to get maximum line life. If this sounds too crazy for you, don’t worry. I will share with you some other alternative ways to store fishing line.

What makes monofilament lines less suitable for storage and why?

Do you know how quickly your monofilament line wears out while fishing?

  • Rocks and debris,
  • Sharp teeth,
  • Current,
  • Environmental exposure.

All these elements combined contribute to faster deterioration of your fishing line. But did you know that how you store your monofilament fishing line out of season can have a much greater impact on your line than how you use it? There are four main factors that cause your monofilament to deteriorate:

  • Sunlight
  • Scraping
  • High temperatures
  • Humidity

alt= width=1200 height=801 data-ez= data-ezsrc=http://server.digimetriq.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/05/1621402891_890_How-To-Properly-Store-Monofilament-Fishing-Line–.jpg />

Why can’t monofilament fishing line and sunlight go together?

When monofilament fishing line is exposed to sunlight for extended periods of time, the sun’s ultraviolet rays begin to degrade the line. You can blame it on the chemistry! When the monofilament is exposed to the sun’s ultraviolet rays, a chemical reaction occurs that makes the line brittle and weak. The good news is that this reaction is very slow, otherwise we would have to change the line after every trip. The bad news is that you can’t prevent UV exposure while fishing, but there are things you can do to reduce UV exposure when storing your monofilament fishing line to extend its life.

How does fishing line fray during storage?

I think most people understand the wear and tear on lines when fishing. But for some reason people think that scouring is not a problem when you store fishing line. So, if you keep your fishing line in a well-organized container and NEVER touch it…sanding is not a problem. But for many people, including me, this is not the case. It is likely that you will need to move the container for some reason, and when you do, the objects in the container will move. If the objects in the container begin to move when you move them, small micro-scratches may form on the line at that point, causing it to come loose. What can you do to minimize fraying when storing your fishing line out of season? Here are some simple steps you can take to minimize the risk of chafing:

  1. Use an appropriately sized bin so that the coils can be arranged in an orderly fashion without leaving room to move them around.
  2. Use a rod that can be placed horizontally or vertically near the container and pull it through the middle of the coils so that the coils do not hang in the container.
  3. Let’s say you have a large container where you keep your fishing line, but there is still plenty of room. You can fill the space with Styrofoam balls to protect the fishing line.

alt= width=1200 height=801 data-ez= data-ezsrc=http://server.digimetriq.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/05/1621402892_194_How-To-Properly-Store-Monofilament-Fishing-Line–.jpg />

Why does monofilament fishing line disintegrate at high temperatures?

You may have heard that monofilament fishing line breaks down when exposed to heat. But what temperature is considered too hot? What is the effect of heat on monofilament fishing line? Monofilament fishing line can withstand temperatures up to 40°C (105°F). Above this temperature, the plastic from which the hose is made changes its properties at the molecular level, resulting in changes in performance and strength. For these reasons, it is important to store monofilament in a place that is not too hot before fishing. Think carefully before storing fishing line in the garage or attic, where the temperature can quickly rise above the specified values, depending on where you live.

What is the effect of moisture on your monofilament fishing line?

Monofilament fishing line tends to behave like a sponge and absorb water. It absorbs water when fishing or moisture from the air. Water absorption in itself does not affect the monofilament fishing line. So what’s the problem with storing monofilaments under the influence of moisture? Remember in the previous chapter when we said that temperatures above 40°C (105°F) can cause changes in fishing line at the molecular level? Water absorption lowers the temperature limit by 40°C (105°F). This means that lower temperatures can change the performance or strength of your fishing line. The more humid the air, the more this temperature threshold is lowered. Many factors influence the amount of moisture absorbed and the effect it will have. Studies have shown that the temperature limit can be lowered to 20°C (68°F) alt= width=1200 height=900 data-ez= data-ezsrc=http://server.digimetriq.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/05/1621402893_763_How-To-Properly-Store-Monofilament-Fishing-Line–.jpg />

Why a freezer is a good solution for storing monofilaments

Now that we have looked a little at the main factors that contribute to monofilament line deterioration, we can understand the benefits of storing monofilament line in the freezer.

UV protection

Your freezer may be a dark, cold place that seems like the perfect place to store monofilament fishing line. Glasses are an excellent way to protect monofilament fishing line from UV exposure. The only time your fishing line sees daylight is when you open the freezer door, and that’s usually short-lived.

Abrasion protection

Now, the freezer can’t protect you from scrapes. You could say that rubbing frozen objects together causes more wear, which I agree with. But if you must use a container without a freezer, use it in the freezer. If you put the tray on the other side of the freezer, you won’t have to move it as often. You can apply some of the tips already mentioned to reduce the movement of objects in the container.

It’s all about temperature control

Remember what happens to your monofilament fishing line when the temperature goes above 40°C (105°F)? Your monofilament fishing line is subject to constant changes that affect performance and strength. Guess what problem a freezer can solve for you? The freezer keeps your monofilament fishing line cold, no matter how hot it is outside.

Guess what happens to moisture when the air gets colder?

Personally, I don’t know of any freezers that control humidity, but I’m sure it’s not in the bag. But we have science on our side, which of course helps us reduce humidity in freezers. As the air cools, water droplets fall from the sky, lowering the humidity. Remember the saying wet cold and dry cold. Dry cold usually occurs in very cold weather because the moisture has turned to water and frozen.

Be careful when removing fishing line from the freezer

As great as it sounds to keep your monofilament fishing line in the freezer, I have to warn you about a few things. If you decide to take the fishing line out of the freezer, keep in mind that it will be dry and a little brittle. This is normal and will not damage your fishing line, but it is best to open the container lid and let the line absorb moisture from the air as it warms up. As the monofilament heats up and absorbs the air molecules, the rope becomes flexible again.

Other storage facilities for monofilament fishing lines

At this point, we’ve covered a lot of information and all the reasons why storing fishing line in the freezer is the best place to store fishing line out of season. But there are many reasons why you should z. B. Fishing line cannot be stored in the freezer:

  • There’s no room in the freezer for fishing line,
  • You may think it’s crazy to store fishing line in a crazy place,
  • Fear of your spouse or roommate’s reaction when they see the fishing line in the freezer.

Whatever the reason, there are other options, and this is still an effective way to store monofilament fishing line.

Waterproof housing

To reduce the humidity inside the container, especially in warm climates, you can buy a waterproof storage box. This is a great solution for keeping your container moist. If the lid is tight enough to keep water out, it holds moisture extremely well. However, remember to protect the container from direct sunlight, especially if it is clear or translucent, to protect it from UV rays. What if I don’t have airtight packaging? The line can then be stored in a normal container with a tight-fitting lid. However, I recommend adding a few bags of silica gel to absorb some of the moisture in the container.

Colored plastic box

Plastic containers are ideal for storing fishing lines. They are strong, light and do not rust. But there is one aspect that is often overlooked: the color of the container. Did you know that the color of the container can help to slightly reduce the UV exposure of the fishing line? Light colored containers reflect more light than dark colors. It’s like wearing a black shirt in the summer instead of a bright blue or a yellow. Remember, if you have a light-colored container, it means your fishing line is fully protected from UV. This simply means that it is somewhat protected from UV rays compared to transparent packaging. Regardless of the color, the container should always be protected from sunlight or at least covered with a blanket or towel.

Improve the way you stow your fishing line to extend its life

Whether your fishing continues to work well into a second or third season depends on how you store your line out of season. We hope you now have a better understanding of the different ways to store your fishing line and some of the key factors to consider.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you store monofilament line?

Ever stopped to consider how you store your fishing line? Do you leave it sitting in a dry bag or a bucket on your deck? Is it hung up in your shed? Or is it piled up in a corner of the garage? Of course, you should store your line in its original packaging, but what about the months (or years) that follow when your gear is not in use anymore? Here’s a simple, inexpensive solution that will keep your line from drying out and breaking while it sits in your garage or shed. Monofilament line is a key component of any modern angler’s tackle box, but it is also one of the most fragile. If not stored properly, it can waste away quickly and become unusable. Proper storage will extend the life of your line and prevent tangles.

How long can you store monofilament fishing line?

Whether you are a skinny-dipping angler or a confident hand-line fisherman, there is no question that the ability to fish is a skill that is often needed in a survival situation. Monofilament fishing line is one of the most critical tools used by anglers to catch fish and keep them from escaping. Unfortunately, it’s also one of the most easily damaged items you can find in your gear. This is why you should always store monofilament fishing line correctly to make it last as long as possible. Fishing line is one of those items that you just can’t seem to part with, so it takes up a lot of space in your tackle box. When you are out at the lake, you want to keep your line as dry as possible so it lasts longer. If you’re like me, you probably keep your line coiled up in a tackle box. When you are ready to use it, you uncoil it and proceed to tie on your first fish. This article is about how long you can store monofilament fishing line in its original packaging.

How do you store fishing line on a reel?

Not too long ago, I managed to hook and land a 32-inch fish using only a 6-pound test monofilament line which is the standard size for use on fishing reels. That was the largest fish I have ever landed with a line, and reeling in the big fish was pretty exhilarating. So, I decided to share my experience on how I stored my line and reel so I can help others recondition their gear in the future, just in case the need arises. One of the first questions asked by many anglers when they are setting up their first fishing tackle box and reels is whether to store monofilament line on the reels or in the boxes. Some believe that this is one of the most common mistakes people make when setting up their tackle boxes and reels. Although most anglers are not able to tell you why monofilament line is not supposed to be stored in the reel, they are willing to tell you why it should be stored in the reel.

  1. Wine Country Craftsman Magnetic Wine Barrel Holder

Wine Barrel Magnetic Knife Holder – Photo: Etsy word-image-5689 Have you ever wondered what wineries do with old barrels? The short answer is that they lose their aging benefits after three cycles. At the time, barrels were ideal for making furniture and other items from oak, as they were very pliable. Modern craftsmen revive these methods from the pre-industrial revolution in every possible way. Wine country artisan Michael Weiss uses the woodworking lessons he learned from his mother to create elegant pieces from used Napa Valley wine barrels. The Wine Barrel magnetic knife holder is particularly space-saving and can be easily attached to any van wall. You can store 8 professional chef knives. Michael is a true craftsman in his construction and uses natural and food safe materials. The process starts with cutting and drying the product for a whole year without artificial influences. Then he sanded the wood and treated it with mineral oil. If it doesn’t meet his high standards, he can apply another coat of mineral oil, as each piece of wood is unique. The small individual magnets are very strong and can support up to 18 pounds. Being a stay-at-home dad himself, Weiss wouldn’t do anything he didn’t use himself. The Wine Country Craftsman Magnetic Wine Barrel knife rack meets many expectations. It has excellent furnishing value, is very artistic, contributes to waste management and is undeniably useful for saving space in the kitchen.
