  1. LAKE CHAMPLAIN

Head north to Lake Champlain for one of the best, and most efficient summer fishing trips on offer in America.

Happy Fishing! 🐟

More Fish, More Fun! Planning a Successful Fishing Trip

By Fishing, Uncategorized

Happy June! Summer is right around the corner, and many people are already planning their Summer vacation trips. Fishing is a popular activity this season, especially if you’re going on a camping trip! Not sure where to start or what you need to pack for a successful fishing experience? No worries! We have some tips for you!

  1. Know your location. Knowing information about your chosen location is important in many different aspects, and can contribute to a safe and fun trip! Some examples may be: What is the weather forecast? What type of fish are in that area? Is the area generally busy with other fishermen? How are the water levels at your location?
  2. Hire a fishing guide. If it’s within your budget for your trip, hiring a guide is one of the most beneficial things you can do. Guides likely know all the best spots, and you’ll get to learn a ton of new information about the area.
  3. Pack good food. Do you need to bring food for all of your meals, or do you have dinner plans at a local spot? At the very least you should bring lots of water and high-quality snacks!
  4. Bring the right gear. It’s a good idea to have sunscreen, sunglasses, water storage and a first aid kit. In addition, consider bringing a camera, a backup rod, extra flies, and a waterproof layer in case of a turn in the weather! Don’t forget to prepare your gear before you leave for your trip!
  5. Know the rules and regulations. Be responsible and take the steps to get the proper fishing license before your trip. Many areas have catch and release only laws, barbless hook laws, artificial lures only, catch limits, size limits, and open and closed seasons. Make sure you know these rules, and follow them for the water bodies you’ll be visiting.

The potential to create new and different works increase with each new design. Each fish rubbing is unique. The set up can be changed in a variety of ways. We can use a broad range of prints or inks.

Fun Facts About Your Thanksgiving Meal in Massachusetts

By Dining, Fun facts, Seasonal

Although turkey is somewhat synonymous with Thanksgiving dinner it’s not all about the Turkey. For many, folks are most grateful for the side dishes, appetizers and the pies. In Massachusetts the most searched recipe on Thanksgiving? Cheesecake. Making cheesecake is easier than you think. Here’s a list of 65 cheesecake recipes to get you started.

As you surround your big bird with dishes that celebrate the 1621 harvest feast of the Wampanoag people and the Plymouth Pilgrims, why not get a little creative with the customs. While generations of traditionalists fill their menu with tried and true dishes (hello, stuffing and pecan pie), some get even further inspired while still paying homage to foods native to the New World.

Across New England, each region has its own peculiar twist on traditional Turkey Day standbys. Massachusetts’ contribution to the table ever since Stow resident Charles Leggett crossed a Hubbard with a Gooseneck in the 1940s is Butternut Squash. Locals roast the winter squash and turn its orange flesh into hearty and interesting holiday dishes with just the right savory to sweet ratio. From soups to salads to stuffing, its potential has no limits. Need some inspiration to change up your squash game? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with this list of 37 Butternut Squash Recipes.

While cheesecake and butternut squash have grown in their desire to be on the Massachusetts dinner table, many other historic Thanksgiving foods have come and gone from the menu over the years as tastes change. These include bear and lobster!

Whatever your dinner table tradition, we hope you enjoy and have a very Happy Thanksgiving! Your Thanksgiving table will look fantastic and clean up will be easy with our Gyotaku placemats. They are available here: https://www.fishayetrading.com/product-category/tabletop/placemats/

The Top 10 Best Locations for Boating in the United States

By Boating

The following list is comprised of constant favorites of sailors, power cruisers, anglers and watersports fans for seasonal or year-round boating, and is not in a specific order.

San Juan Islands– Here, instead of palm trees and tropical fish, there are forests filled with pine trees and the sea life includes killer whales! Located in the Pacific Northwest, each island and town has a distinct charm of its own.

San Francisco Bay- It is extremely windy with relatively calm seas. Sailors and power boaters love it.

Lake Havasu– It is located on the border between Southern California and Arizona. Young boaters often party here, making the area seem like an endless Spring Break celebration. Havasu attracts many sport boats, but there are also plenty of houseboats and pontoon boats.

Lake Champlain– This lake is on the border of Vermont and New York State. It is 125 miles long, and stretches into Canadian waters. There are 80 islands to enjoy. There are many historical sites along the lake as well.

Isle Royale National Park– This is the second largest island in the Great Lakes. Isle Royale can be found on Lake Superior. There are hundreds of shipwrecks to explore if you enjoy diving, but the water can be cold, so make sure to bring your gear and thick wet suits!

Mackinac Island– This is also in the Great Lakes, on Lake Huron. Summer is a busy time of year for this lake. Each year, the Chicago Yacht Club hosts a challenging race, with a distance of over 300 miles, up Lake Michigan.

Newport, Rhode Island– This is a boater’s paradise. The sunsets are so beautiful. Newport has a distinguished boat show each September for power boaters and sail boaters.

Chesapeake Bay– It is almost 200 miles long and up to 30 miles wide. About half of the Bay is in Maryland and the other half is in Virginia. Rockfish fishing is popular, but any kind of boating is common.

South Florida– From Fort Lauderdale all the way through the Florida Keys to the Key West, fishing is extremely popular. The eastern coast is a common place for center console fishing boats.

Northwest Florida– Tampa Bay on the western coast of the state is great for paddle boarders, kayakers, fishermen and sailors. There’s so much to do, from dock dining, beach camping, and cruising.

4 Reasons Why Some Art is so Expensive

By Art, Food for thought

The term “artist” describes a painter, illustrator, graphic designer, sculptor, novelist, poet, filmmaker, and even a musician. Art is such a broad term because there are so many various forms of art. Art is defined as “works produced by human creative skill and imagination.” So, if everyone has the potential for creative skill and imagination, why is some art SO expensive?

Here are a few reasons why some art is extremely costly:

  1. It’s hard to put a value on art.

The value of art is determined by the perceiver. The same piece of art can be meaningful to one person, and completely meaningless to another. However, factors like the size of the artwork, the age of the artwork, the artist, and if it has been bought before are important to take into consideration when placing a value on a piece of art.

  1. Supply and demand.

Many pieces of artwork receive an increased value after the artist has passed away because artwork by that person becomes limited. The demand for this artwork increases, which also increases the cost.

  1. Art is seen as an easy investment.

Art’s value is constantly changing. One day, it could be worth a million dollars, but a decade later, it could be worth so much more than that. Because of this, wealthy people sometimes purchase art for the purpose of gaining more wealth rather than to have the artwork.

  1. Practicing art is expensive.

The supplies needed to create good-quality art can be very costly. Creating art also takes a lot of time. It’s also difficult for artists to sell their work for a reasonable price locally. This is why artists are usually called starving artists. Because the mediums to create the artwork are expensive, and it takes hours upon hours to finally have the piece of artwork completed, the value of the art increases tremendously.

Our art is not as costly as many other pieces of art that’s out there! We have cool, affordable art that will decorate your house perfectly! Take a look at our nautical print gallery and let your creative imagination run wild! https://www.fishayetrading.com/wall-art/

Saltwater Fishing Tips

By Fishing

Due to the different types of saltwater fish and number of saltwater fishing tips and techniques that can be applied, learning all the tricks when it comes to how to saltwater fish can be a challenge for both seasoned anglers and beginners.

Just remember, the types of fishing tackle and gear that is used for saltwater fishing differs considerably based on the species and the specific fishing techniques that are applied. Other saltwater fishing tips to keep in mind:

  1. Make sure to have a valid saltwater fishing license.
  2. Check a local tide chart when planning your inshore saltwater fishing trip. One of the most important inshore fishing tips is to plan your trips based on tidal movement.
  3. Choose the right spinning rod and reel combo. Start out with a 7-foot, medium weight spinning rod and reel combo that’s rated for 10 to 20-pound test line.
  4. Use live or natural baits or your favorite fishing lures. Natural baits, such as shrimp or baitfish, offer you the best opportunity for consistent action.
  5. Make sure to keep your live bait in a covered bucket or in a live well.
  6. Consider fishing from a public pier to start. Public piers are great places to gain experience with inshore saltwater fishing gear, rigging baits, and landing fish.
  7. When practicing catch and release, keep your catch out of the water only as long as you can hold your own breath.

Learning how to saltwater fish is as much about the adventure as it is about the fish. Many of the sport fish species can be big and mean, and the water can be big and bad. From shallow saltwater flats to deep ocean fishing, saltwater anglers chase everything from dainty speckled trout to massive blue marlin in some of the most intense and inspirational surroundings on earth.
