Posted by Lauren Yanez on Jul 28, 2011

i got a trolling rod and reel for my birthday gift. i dont go way out .i just wanna fish off the peir or surf

you should be okay with it on a pier but a trolling outfit is not really a good recommendation for use as a surf fishing outfit. too short and not designed for casting.

l can’t stand it…

Fish hate aftershave

Posted by Lauren Yanez on Jul 27, 2011

Did you know that fish can sense foreign scents and tastes on
your bait and lures?

I was down at the local pier the other morning and I got talking
to an old fisherman. He is in the prime of his life, having
worked hard as a machine operator in a factory, he is now
retired and goes fishing every morning with his faithful little
dog Bosco.

As we were talking he was catching quite a few Garfish, while my
bait stayed in the water without so much as a nibble. That’s
when he asked what I had been doing this morning. I told him
that I had been for my morning walk with my wife and our dog,
had a shower and a shave before I headed down here for some
relaxation time.

His next question astounded me, “what aftershave did you use?”

“Gillette Ice Cool” I replied

“There’s your problem!” He said, “Your wife might think you
smell good with it on, but the fish don’t”

He continued to tell me that fish can sense foreign scents and
tastes in the water. By baiting my hook after using aftershave,
the scent of the aftershave would be passed onto the bait or
lure and the fish wouldn’t touch it.

Even freshly washed human hands can leave foreign scents on
bait. The best way to remove any scent is to mix up a small
bottle of tuna oil and water, then rinse your hands with a small
amount before baiting your hook, wiping any excess off with a
towel so you don’t get oil all over your equipment. You only
need to use enough to moisten your hands enough for the tuna oil
smell to cover any other scents.

Aftershave isn’t the only thing that will scare fish off. Having
a cigarette, using sun screen and hundreds of other small things
we wouldn’t think about can drive fish away from your bait.

Be smart, catch more fish, keep your hands free from foreign

Find All-around Perfection in New Smyrna Beach

Posted by Lauren Yanez on Jul 27, 2011

While Florida may be home to some of the greatest theme parks in the world, it is also a state that draws visitors en masse to its pristine, natural beauty and soft sandy beaches. Away from the crowds that flock to Orlando and Daytona Beach, New Smyrna Beach invites you to enjoy the very best of the Sunshine State as you swim, surf, laugh, and play to your heart’s content.

As a coastal city that rests along the Eastern Seaboard, the standout attraction in New Smyrna Beach has to be its 13-mile stretch of white sand beaches. Soft to the touch and perfect for those days when all you want to do is throw down a towel and relax, you can escape the stress of daily life and enjoy everyone’s favorite activity in New Smyrna Beach—doing absolutely nothing at all. While you could conceivably spend your days simply working on your tan, the beaches are also the perfect jumping off point for numerous active pursuits, including surfing, swimming, shell collecting, and even treasure hunting.

If the beaches are a place to set your worries free, then the water is definitely the place to accommodate your sense of adventure and explore the great outdoors. While the Atlantic Ocean may seem like the logical choice for water-bound excursions, New Smyrna Beach is actually convenient to a variety of waterways and estuaries where you can find breathtaking views and scenery. All you need to do is grab a kayak or canoe rental and you can access a variety of secluded areas in search of beautiful birds, lush greenery, and a little exercise.

After working your arms in the kayak, participate in one of New Smyrna Beach’s less exhausting pastimes by renting a powerboat. Head out into the depths of the Atlantic for a fishing adventure with the family or grab your binoculars for some birding closer to the coastline. A boat rental is also a great way to get away from the people on the beaches and soak up some warm Florida sunshine with only the sound and sight of the water to disturb your thoughts. During your outbound adventure, you may even be privy to a close-up look at some dolphins and manatees passing through the water.

As warm weather reigns on New Smyrna Beach and residents and visitors alike flock to the sandy shore, take advantage of your supreme surroundings by hitting the links on a local course. Offering both 9- and 18-hole public courses throughout the area, you can squeeze in an afternoon of golf or you can spend a couple days polishing your game on a few of the more challenging fairways and greens. A couple of options that you might want to consider include the Turnbull Bay Golf Course and the Hidden Lakes Golf Club.

If golf isn’t your game, you can work on your backhand on the five hard-surface courts at Detwilder Park, the two hard courts at Pettis Park, or the six clay courts and one hard court at the Racquet Tennis Center. Exploring beyond New Smyrna Beach is also an excellent option if you can fit it into your schedule, and the one place that absolutely cannot be missed is Cape Canaveral. The Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex should be at the top of any itinerary, while the Air Force Space and Missile Museum offers an excellent look at U.S. Air Force space launch activities.

Under the sun, on the water, or in the sand, New Smyrna Beach is a safe haven where rest, relaxation, and a carefree spirit take center stage. Escape from the ordinary on your next getaway and surround yourself with breathtaking views of the water, easy access to the sandy expanse, and all of the amenities of home in New Smyrna Beach vacation rentals. Always a convenient option and offering you the most comfortable accommodations you could possibly ask for, New Smyrna Beach rentals should be at the top of your list whenever you want the most enjoyable vacation possible.

The Best European Golf Destinations For Family Holidays

Posted by Lauren Yanez on Jul 27, 2011

Golf holidaying with a family presents its own special challenges. Keeping non-golfers in the family happy and feeling like they are having a real holiday, while at the same time getting your fill of golf, is worth that bit of extra travel planning. The following European golf resort holiday destinations are perfect for family holidays.

Central Algarve
Central Algarve, with its beautiful scenery, perfect weather, and exceptional golf courses, is one of Europe’s top golfing destinations. Resorts such as Vilamoura, Quinta do Lago, and Vale do Lobo, and Vilamoura offer much more than golf and will provide non-golfers with all the holiday variety they would expect from a first-class resort. At Quinta do Lago, a 2,000-acre exclusive residential and recreational estate, you have countryside and pine forests, the Atlantic Ocean, and the Ria Formosa nature reserve as your playground, plus 72 holes of golf. Horse riding and tennis as well as a variety of water sports will keep your family occupied during the day, and there are classy restaurants, hip nightclubs for night-time entertainment, as well as the Bourganvilla Shopping Centre and a health club. The stunning two-mile stretch of golden-sand is a bonus.

Vale do Lobo, receiver of accolades such as “Best Resort of the Millennium”, and the Algarve’s largest leisure resort, has quality accommodation and diverse sporting facilities, including one of the largest tennis facilities in Portugal. Vale do Lobo, with its two (going on three) 18-hole championship courses, hosts around 100,000 golfers each year.

Vilamoura, twice the size of Vale do Lobo, has tennis courts, a riding school, fishing and shooting facilities, and indoor and outdoor sports complexes, as well as five golf courses. Amazing vessels are moored at the large marina, home to restaurants, cafes and shops. A surprisingly cosmopolitan nightlife consists of bars, clubs and restaurants.

Costa Del Sol
Costa del Sol offers variety both on and off the fairways, and the mild winters and beautiful springs and autumns are perfect for golf. There are around 20 courses, leisure areas, playgrounds and family attractions, as well as beaches and seaside promenades. Three excellent water parks are open from Easter for the summer season, with water slides, pools for all ages and abilities, as well as picnic areas and restaurants. At a number of nature parks you can see animals and enjoy educational programs. Selwo Aventura has over 2,000 wild animals and an unrivalled nature reserve, and Selwo Marina has exotic birds, an underwater observation centre, and dolphins. At the Benalmádena Sea Life Centre, an interactive underwater park, you can walk on the bottom of the sea and view thousands of aquatic species.

The Lisbon Coast
There are great golf courses here and the beaches are perfect for families. The scenery, magnificent with its small fishing bays and towering cliffs, and the superb local cuisine worth the trip alone. And nearby Lisbon, has all the diversity that a capital city can offer. Quinta da Marinha resort has leisure facilities including three salt-water outdoor swimming pools, a fitness centre with heated indoor swimming pool, six tennis courts and a tennis school, a Turkish bath, sauna, Jacuzzi, gym, massage room, bicycle hire, horse riding, and, last but not least, an 18-hole golf course.

Praia D’el Rey Marriott, just 60-minute drive from Lisbon airport, is a beachfront hotel with spacious family rooms, away from the tourist crush. The hotel has indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a health club, Jacuzzi and tennis courts. Nearby Obidos, a charming hill town set within 14th-century castellated walls, is a perfect day trip destination. And the Praia d’el Rey golf course, one of Europe’s finest, is right on your doorstep.
