  • IGFA | Polarized Sunglasses
    Make a Gift Shop Upcoming Events Advertising Opportunities Contact Donor Opportunities Donor Societies Member Discounts Membership Benefits Polarized Sunglasses By Costa Sunglasses and the IGFA School of Sportfishing Instructor Captain Mike Holliday Polarized sunglasses can be one of the best tools for sight fishing especially for anglers who are sensitive to glare When light reflects off of flat surfaces such as a lake or ocean waves the light waves align in horizontal patterns and create intense glare The filters in polarized lenses block these horizontal light waves substantially reducing blinding glare and creating greater visibility in the water Even if the fish are not visible polarized lenses cut the surface glare in ways that allow you to see your line lures flies strike indicator or bobbers improving your ability to make good presentations and detect strikes There are many options for lenses in sunglasses and it is best to use lenses that correspond to the fishing conditions you fish most frequently IGFA School of Sportfishing instructor Mike Holliday suggests A lot of anglers and guides carry several pairs of sunglasses for changing light conditions For instance in the morning or on overcast days they ll use a Sunrise lens that allows 27 light transmission so you can see through the glare and pick out the reflected light bouncing off the fish and structure In bright sun they ll go to a copper or amber colored lens or a mirrored lens with 12 light transmission to cut glare and enhance contrast If they go from inshore to offshore they ll move from an amber or copper based lenses color to more of a gray color lens for more color saturation when looking deep into the water column In some instances polarized filters react with the tints in windshields creating blindspots and

  • IGFA | Top Ten Record Largemouth Bass
    under a microscope After months of rigorously reviewing the application the IGFA granted Manabu Kurita his share of the holy grail a tie for the coveted All Tackle largemouth bass world record with George Perry Easley Sparks a Flame When Raymond Easley caught his 21 lb 3 oz largemouth on March 4 1980 it was the largest bass anyone had recorded since George Perry s All Tackle monster in 1932 On that morning Easley was fishing Lake Casitas California with a few buddies who were inexperienced anglers While demonstrating how to properly fish a live crawfish in the relatively deep water Easley s bait got crushed and he came tight After a quick fight Easley had the fish weighed in on a certified scale not far from the lake and the catch became the men s 8 lb line class world record which still stands today At the time of the catch Easley s fish was the second heaviest largemouth ever recorded second only to Perry s All Tackle record The catch sent shockwaves through the angling community and renewed the hopes of anglers everywhere about having a chance at catching the next world record largemouth especially anglers in southern California Crupi Begins Historic Run Robert Crupi s first world record largemouth would be the fish of a lifetime for any other angler a 21 lb lunker that he pulled from the renowned Castaic Lake in Southern California on March 9 1990 Crupi a now retired LA policeman had been fishing Lake Castaic since 1977 was a regular on the lake In fact Crupi fished the same spot in the lake for five days prior to landing this fish which he coerced with a live crayfish he was fishing in 36 40 ft of water Although he had caught several large fish in his life never had Crupi seen one this big The fish was successfully landed weighed in and shortly after became the men s 12 lb line class record At the time this was the third heaviest largemouth ever recorded by the IGFA Crupi was just getting started Crupi Strikes Again Christmas came late for Robert Crupi in 1990 On the morning of December 28 1990 Crupi was fishing his usual spots on Castaic Lake working a crippled herring jig in about 40 feet of water after marking some fish on his electric paper graph precursor to modern day bottom machines After catching several crappie and smallmouth bass Crupi dropped the jig down again but this time he hooked something big The fish effortlessly stripped the 4 lb monofilament off his reel and stayed deep for approximately 15 minutes Finally the fish surfaced about 50 yards from the boat and Crupi realized what he had been fighting Fishing alone Crupi managed to net and land the fish by himself logging his second world record a 17 lb 1 oz fish for the men s 4 lb line class record Crupi s Biggest and Last A couple months later

  • IGFA | Rigging Soft Plastics
    than hard or rigid lures and fish are much less likely to immediately let go after striking To enhance this aspect manufacturers will often impregnate soft plastics with scents and flavors One of the greatest features of soft plastics is the variety of ways in which they can be rigged and fished allowing you to target fish in open water at depth through weeds and around structure Here are some tried and true methods that every angler should have in their arsenal Rigging weightless This is a simple form of rigging a rubber worm or soft plastic The hook is tied directly to the mainline with no weight or sinker A small swivel can be added to reduce line twist if the lure spins This is a great style to cast along shorelines into mangroves docks or weeds Hide the point of hook in the body of the lure to minimize snags Texas Style rig Texas style with a twist a wooden toothpick is inserted in the tapered end hole of the sliding sinker locking it in place at the head of the lure The benefit of doing this is that it makes the rig virtually weedless when the hook point is inserted back into the side of your soft plastic You can also buy premade sinkers with a corkscrew wire molded into the flat end which screws into the head section of a soft plastic lure Texas Style weighted hook rig This is a modern approach to the traditional Texas Style Rig in which a premade hook with a sinker molded to its shank is used in combination with the soft plastic lure The advantage of the center weighted hook is that it allows the bait to sink horizontally rather than vertically which can be helpful with a more natural presentation Carolina Style rig The Carolina Style rig is commonly used for bottom fishing in an area free of debris or snags A bullet weight sinker is threaded onto the mainline followed by a plastic or glass bead A swivel is then tied to the mainline and a length of leader 12 or more is tied to the swivel with a hook and soft plastic on the other end This rig creates a clicking noise as the angler raises and drops the rig back to the bottom and the bead and weight hit each other adding a new level of fish attracting action Splitshot rig A soft plastic and hook are attached to the mainline and a splitshot is simply squeezed 18 24 on the mainline above the lure The splitshot rig is commonly used with lighter line or when a soft plastic lure requires some weight but not excess weight that would otherwise alter the action of the soft plastic such as in flowing water Wacky rig A very simple method of hooking a soft plastic that is highly effective on bedding largemouth bass Tie a drop shot style hook onto the mainline Then symmetrically hook your bait
