: Yak Attack Sorties

I am not sure if I want to buy a yak so I want to rent from my good friend Donny Baker at Sesuit Creek Outfitters and try a few scenarios that I have been thinking a lot about lately.

One of them is Pleasant Bay, although it can be a schoolie show it's also got some nice fish and is an inside bay with open ocean tide flushes on a daily basis.

Another is the bayside flats between Sandy Neck, Brewster, all the way to Wellfleet there are great flats to paddle out to.

Monomoy is another place where a yak opens up the options in a big way.

Soon the south cape will be the target when tunoids arrive.

So I propose the first Yak attack for Bayside flats before the large fish move out to Billingsgate - which they have not really done yet this year. I am sure they will leave the inshore flats soon, but right now fish in the mid-thirty inch class are pretty regular there.

The second yak attack could be either monomoy or pleasant bay.

Then the tunoids.

Saturdays are best for me, and parking is a consideration. I have an open bed truck and could take a good # of yaks to the launch of we wanted to split the parking ticket ;-)

A few things to think thru here...

If a canoe can be included I would like to go. I could also take one or two people who do not have a yak.

I would be up for a yak attack the weekends of July 14th and July 21st. This weekend I am decidedly out of commission.

Let me know what dates you guys have in mind.

I'd love to try one of these trips.

I will be doing a scout trip at 4am tomorrow. I need to head home for family duties around 8:30/9:00am so will be rowing out to an island shoal in an area where there have been big fish lately on the Cape.
