Catch and Release from a Kayak
When you're catching and releasing from a kayak, there are some tools that are going to make it easier for you, and some considerations you need to make. First off: do yourself a favor and get yourself a fish grip. I know not everybody likes these, but in a kayak its harder than on a boat or on shore to handle a fish, and the fish grip allows you to hold the fish by its jaw without hurting it, which can become very important in a kayak where its arguably easier to harm the fish. Now, make sure you use it right: The way you handle and control the fish while it's out of the water is a key point in its survival. If you toss it and send it flying back into the water after ripping its gills, it's not going to make it. Keeping stability in a kayak, like I"ve mentioned, is already hard, so if you're able to use a fish grip (which locks in place) to keep the fish stable you wont drop or hurt it should you lose a bit of stability. Nets can be hook magnets and cause you un-wanted movement if there's wind, so the fish grip is a good alternative. I'm not saying you shouldn't use nets if that's what your comfortable wish, I'm speaking to beginners here. Do whatever you can to keep yourself balanced and stable, for both your safety and the fish's. Lastly, the fish grip allows for faster photo ops: you can have the fish in the perfect position in no time without hurting it. Have your camera ready to go, and safely let the little guy on his way. NOTE: These are also great for dealing with fish with a bite: check out the last video of the FISH GRIP VS SNAKEHEAD!! You wouldn't want your hand to be in its place. Hope this helps some of you guys new to yak angling!
97% vs 3%
Society is divided up between two categories. There's the 97% and the 3%. The 97% are the average people. They work 9-5 jobs, focused too much on their education, don't think outside the box, and simply quit on themselves and their goals (if they had any significantly big ones). Yes, some people chose to be a part of that percentile and that's ok because it's their choice. They wanted it to be easy. But for those who complain about it have no right to. They may be thinking "I work 8 hours a day. I deserve better and should be living a better life." In reality they don't. They knew what they were getting themselves into and what the rest of their life would be like. They have made their choice a have given up on what could have been, for them, a life full of rewards and luxury. They decide to see the obvious instead of what's further ahead, and when they see the obvious, they hurt themselves more by looking at it through one perspective. These are the people who have simply said "I will do my part in society no matter the cost." Education plays a huge factor in your destiny. Some dream jobs do require an advanced education. When this is present, education is ok to take part in for it is needed to achieve a dream. For jobs that don't require education, you simply are spending $100,000 to people who will never know your name. The 3% of people in society are the people who put themselves away from society. They're the entrepreneurs in this world, the people loaded with confidence, they ignore what people say, etc. These people realized they have so much potential in their life and they take the opportunity even when it's not present. To be where they are they took the risks and sacrifices and understood what outcomes could come. Every penny they've ever made was put into what they believed in even if it was a dream or goal so big it scared them. Fear is not present in these people. They realized the only thing that could really stop them was fear therefore they learned to overcome it. No matter the criticism they received, negative comments they've been told, or even simply being told "you can't do it." 24 hours was not enough for them to get what they needed done so they would put in a full 24 hours of work. Now, depending on who they are and their stories, they could have had an easy start or challenging one. Some entrepreneurs were lucky enough to have a family member who already started the business or gave a startup of $1,000,000. But some start with nothing but a dollar and a vision. One feels much more rewarding than the other and causes them to have a bigger appreciation for what they have and have done. The 3% are always hungry no matter what they have. They will not stop until they have what they want. There are many quotes for these people but the quote posted best describes them. So now that you know a little about the two sides of society, which one will you choose? Are you happy with where you stand? Or do you want better? It's never too late to change or start. All it takes is confidence, hard work, and a drive strong enough that you constantly think "I can't quit now." Keep pushing towards what you want and stop at nothing. Have a good day guys, Kyler
Love It Or Hate It: Would You Ever Skydive?
Welcome to the Funny Community game, Love It Or Hate It! This game is really similar to Monday's 'No Good or So Good' food game - except this one deals a lot more with non-food things. Every week, I highlight a different thing that a lot of people either really love or really hate and see how our community feels overall! Last week, I asked you how you felt about EDM! Out of the 48 who gave your opinion, 25 of you said EDM is just 'meh'. Soooo... EDM has been voted to be NO GOOD!!!!! This week, I want to know: How do you feel about skydiving? Some of us can totally keep our chill when it comes to heights. Others - like Miley Cyrus, here - can definitely not. Which category do you, uh, 'fall' into? Is skydiving something you'd LOVE or absolutely HATE to do? @Inaritricx @Taijiotter @AimeeH @XergaB20 @JustinaNguyen @RainaC3 @bnrenchilada @destiny1419 @arnelli @Luci546 @Ash2424701 @GingerMJones @zwdodds @LenaBlackRose @misssukyi @TerraToyaSi @kneelb4zod @BrookeStam @RachelParker @JaxomB @ultraninja10 @reyestiny93 @MattK95 @MajahnNelson @petname83 @BluBear07 @melifluosmelodi @ZoilaObregon @GossamoKewen95 @TracyLynnn @TiffanyWallace @VixenViVi @DenieceSuit @ButterflyBlu @CelinaGonzalez @MaighdlinS @maddiemoozer @VeronicaArtino @iixel @TomHawthorne @DominiqueThomas @ElizabethT @RiggaFoster @AluSparklez @kvnguyen @chris98vamg @WiviDemol @animechild51 @2Distracted @cthulu @jazziejazz @JessicaChaney @shantalcamara @J1mbleJ4mz @Beeplzzz @carmaa10 @MayraYanez @Kamiamon @HeatherWright @MischiefK1ng @SeoInHan @ShonA @KennyMcCormick @MooshieBay @IMNII @Ikpoper @humairaa @merryjayne13 @zoemvillarreal @lilleonz @ChristinaOMalle @AllieGrabowski @baileykayleen @KarleyFrance @Ticasensei @EasternShell @musicundefined9 @peahyr @TerrecaRiley @MoisEsGaray @atmi @AlidaGarman @sanRico @orenshani7 @jannatd93 @ReadAnimateSwim @Astrohelix @dimplequeen @ChildofSparda13 @grapetoes2000 @sarahpjane @LittleHorn @justinasarmento @deilig @GalaxyTacoCat @amobigbang @LAVONYORK @Jason41 @kpopdeluxegirl @BlackDragon88 @Bobs @paularasnick @Animaniafreak @YumiMiyazaki @Patmanmeow @MarvelTrashcan @kawaiiporpoise @Xiuyeolhyun @MaggieHolm @xDaisyDaysx @yaakattackk @Starbell808 @KyleBerke @fatimajj23 @GabrielMarques @Alletaire @kkimberlyy @Priscillasdoor @chrisg3584 @brandontearss @bradleygialamas @justme29 @buddyesd @changoleon @Sara3 @felicityautumn @ssora @MorghanPorter @IzamarPalomo @realjoy @Heartofgold35 @mscocoasupreme @MyFunkySpell @ChakiahWallace @Krystalstar22 @KarlythePanda66 @JoeyNelson @TonyLepera @dianes6711 @Aripendragon @MichelleHolly @AviannaLin @seouls @AustinThurston @Sammyjuicoooo @divanicola05 @RavenQueen0810 @captpeter @Kourtland @Tsukasakrdcd @MistyTaylorByrd @MariPili @TylerCassalata @SarahRegulski @Melodicballoon @heyitskat @KellerBertrand @jiggzy19 @gogglesghost @BanalataBera @JayAi @mpandy @Gibbous1992 @Kody18 @ctsr1 @iamaweirdoo @Jasminep96 @CynthiaForeman @MzDawson31508 @MundaneGirl @DeniseNishikawa @lvplus2 @YourConscience @Bose @wrightally15 @jla23 @tiffany1922 @bettytolliver @Pocahontas41 @Dojjin @MelissaGarza @donmarques6 @VanessaAcosta @HollasiS @karlkahambwe @LexTrilly @HikariAkuhei @xander1981 @LinnyOk @colvitt @Isolate @Birdy915 @Nerdydemigod @na11 @CristalTrujillo @camilletoomer @selfishmachines

Outfitting Your Kayak for Fishing
When it comes down to it, you don't need much beyond a rod to fish from your kayak. You need more than that to do it comfortably and well, but if you already kayak or have a kayak available, it's possible to get yourself set up for kayak fishing! ***Rod Holder – You need something to keep your rods in place. Your boat can flip or your rod can get hung up on a tree. Last thing you want to do is lose your rod and reel combo. ***Kayak Crate/Tackle Boxes -- Kayak crates combine rod holders with an area to store your goods; a great way to outfit a kayak quickly is using one of these! See a cool DIY to make one here: http://www.vingle.net/posts/424986 ***Anchors – Stop your boat or you may miss the fish. Securing your kayak in a specific location is key when fishing and there is no better way to do it than with a small anchor and line. Don't get anything over 3lbs unless you have to. Claw or folding anchors from the store will work, or you can try to make your own: http://www.vingle.net/posts/486548 ***Paddle Leash – Don't be up the creek without a paddle: secure it! By installing a simple device that secures your paddle to your boat, you’ll never have to worry about losing a paddle when you catch the “big one”. One end simply ties to a piece of hardware or installed accessory on the boat and the other to your paddle shaft. Leashes are better for fishing from your kayak than the clips that a kayak typically comes with. Make one for your rod, too: http://www.vingle.net/posts/424992 By getting these basic things ready, you can be yak angling in no time! Get those lines wet, and have a good day on the water.
