Napatree

Hi Guys,

Ended up solo at Napatree. Put in at Barn Island. As soon as I put in the fog rolled in on me for awhile, lot's of boat traffic hittin the horns. I crossed a major channel and the fog lifted a bit. I saw some bird activity over blitzing fish and paddled hard to get there. No so sooner did I get there then they moved elsewhere. Fast moving blitzing fish can be a workout to keep up with in a kayak. At first I thought they might be hardtails, But later after hooking one I found them to be stripers. Lots of small ones with a few larger schoolie sized bass in the mix. I had 2 or 3 schools around me blitzing on small baitfish for a couple of hours, kept me busy. Never made it to Napatree, got distracted by blitzing bass!

Juro - Yes new- old boat.. Completely restored, top down... 30 foot Scarab CC w/twin 200's. Will pick up later this year from Florida.

Greg.
