Love the yak


You have to love the kayak. It really does open up new areas and adventures for the normally shore bound striper fly guy.

I am now addicted to yak fishing....

Congrats on the keeper,

FishHawk Mark you've had a great season so far. Perhaps one of these days I venture into Big Cow waters with my yak. FishHawk

Nick Nice work. Its fun getting towed around. You don't get to see the backing very often in the yak though, that's one bonus from being shore bound.

I have yet to figure out how to get them to tow me in the right direction though. They always seem to know how to make my paddle longer!

First sleigh ride

I took the kayak out in Niantic Friday evening. I was in a spot that's usually reliable for shad, but the schoolies were out in full force. Suspecting that there might be a few bigger fish around, I changed lines and started to bump the bottom. A thirty inch striper cooperated and proceeded to pull me in circles on the eight weight. Now that was different.

I totaled about ten schoolies, the keeper, and one shad. A chartruese real eel caught most of the fish. Lightening drove me off the water by about 9:30, but I was quite happy for the experience. My confidence with the kayak is growing.
