Those same ponds can also be great in late October/November, when most others are out front pounding the beaches for fish.

Adrian Water is still a bit chilly - only 45F yesterday but the fish don't seem to care. Nothing sluggish about the takes

I'm going to be stuck back in the UK for the next three weeks so no fishing for me until May 7th. I'm signed up for the Jamaica Bay kayak tourney that week-end. Not that I'm much interested in winning anything, but there is a great chance of connecting with a big weakfish down there along with the blues and stripers.

I'll probably be bringing the yak up to the Cape for spring clave.

If I don't use it in the salt I want to give schoolhouse pond a good 'working over'.

Wee Hooker Yea, My tarpon is also an angler with Rudder. (Olive Green )I stole it on clearence from the Burlington EMS late last season. ( Got a tip from a guy on another site that they had 1 left!) . Conducted quick "Sea trials" on the way home in a local pond and havn't gotten back to it yet To be honest, from those quick observations in that short trip, I was a bit surprised that the 140 had no noticable speed or stability advantage over my old Pungo . Maybe I expected too much out of that extra 24" .
FWIW, My Pungo is an origional 12' which has served me well and kept me bone dry in all kinds of weather and sea conditions.
( Also have LOOn 138 in the rack that I scored used for my eldest son to use at the family property in RI. I also like this boat allot but try to respect that it's "his" )

I think I'll like the Tarpon ( it certainly comes highly recomended) , i just have to give it some time in warm weather conditions.

bonefishmon Pungo 120 for me. Saw a Hobie at the Saltwater Show. SOT with foot peddles and it's own two wheel carry cart behind the seat. Very inovative.

Dble Haul I have the angler version of the Tarpon 140, complete with rudder. It's a cool ride.
04-06-2006 06:54 PM
Wee Hooker I'm about ready. IF for nothing else but the exercise & enjoyment of being out. I do a nice sheltered spot for some big spring calico's but we really need some weather that's a LITTLE warmer. Heck, it snowed yesterday! Still wondering which will be my favorite ride this year: My old faithful Pungo or the new Tarpon 140 .Got the Tarpon LATE lasy year and only got to use it an hour! Still not sure if a SOT is for me.
What are you guys paddling?

bonefishmon I'll come so long as you don't disappear at midnight the night before! LOL! Just kidding Mark. Glad too see you've awaken from that looooong winter sleep.

Dble Haul Great! I know some spots on the CT River, and I know you have some on the Housy for this time of year. Let's keep an eye on the tides and figure which would be best.

Adrian Thats one of the four days I am back in the USA

If they don't grab me at work I'll join you!

Dble Haul Sleeping beauty? You're making me blush.

I know you've been awake. I'm trying to raise the others out there.

I have Good Friday (April 14) off and am thinking of a sortie.....anyone else in the CT/RI area up for it?

Wake up yakkers....

I think it's about time for some kayak fishing.

Life got in the way of me being able to get out and take some very early season stripers from the lower CT River, but now that air temperatures are regularly above water temperatures I think that the kayak will get wet sometime soon.

I need a tug, and the yak is the tool to get me into some out of the way spots.
