The two ends of a fishing pole are called 'Tag End' or 'Standing End'. The tag end is also called the 'live end', 'running end' or 'working end'. This is since this is the end of the fishing rod that is utilized to celebrate a marriage. The opposite end of the 'tag end' is the 'standing end' or 'standing line'; the part of the fishing rod that is not associated with celebrating a marriage, it is the unfinished end and results in the reel.

The tag end is an important part of a fishing rod since it is the end utilized to tying the fishing knot and refers to the short end of the line left over after the knot is tied. Whatever the knot, it can fail for any type of number of reasons from insufficient wraps or rounds of the knot resulting in the knot getting undone to the tag end being trimmed too short.

Avoid dealing with the fish for extended amount of times. Try your best not to drag the fish through the dirt or on the carpet of your boat. This will destroy the protective cover of slime over the fish's skin. Without that protective cover, the fish is incredibly vulnerable to the bacteria, parasites and germs in the water. Bass and Crappie are sensitive creatures that can be hurt a lot more quickly than individuals believe.

Because we are discussing the care of fish, let's talk about the proper handling procedures. My Granddad always instructed me to get a fish by the gills and hang on tight. Well, the gills of a fish are extremely sensitive and can be destroyed quickly. That would be like somebody giving you a substantial bear hug and squeezing all of your air out. If you damage the gills of a fish, there is a 75 % or better chance that the fish will enter into shock and die sometime after that event. Always try to utilize the method called lipping, which is holding the fish by the lip. By doing this you avoid touching the skin and the protective layer of slime on it. Never bend the jaw back too far since you can destroy the jaw. Try to land your catches as quickly as you can. The fish exerts a remarkable amount of energy fighting to be caught. If you are going to release the fish after you have caught it, then you are actually hurting it and reducing any type of chance of survival by using the fish out.

Please don't rip or tear the out hooks in a fish's mouth. Simply, and extremely gently, back off the barb of the hook or use needle nose pliers to aid you. Make sure with the fish's jaw and remember they can destroy. If the hook is deeply imbedded in the throat of the fish, just cut the hook loose and releases the fish. The hook will eventually dissolve or come out. There are tools you can utilize to remove those deeply embedded hooks and it is unreal hard to do this. Not all the hooks that are deeply embedded in the throat of a fish are going to come out. If two or three of the barbs are snagged in the throat, you better keep that fish and plan on eating it for dinner. Actually if you are going fishing somewhere and intending on catching a bunch of fish, say Crappie or Sand Bass. Take a cooler loaded with ice to keep your catch fresh. Yes, boats have live wells, but if you pack them wall to wall in the live well, you have a lot of in there. They will start to die. If you are taking these fish the home of clean and eat, then get them on ice; keep their body temperature cold to avoid putridity. I suggest if you are harvesting fish to eat. Set your size limits before you start that day of fishing and avoid taking any type of undersized fish. Give those little men a chance to grow, all the best!
