Fishing out of yaks seems to have spawned an entire industry and some guys out west do some pretty crazy things. There seems to be a strong contingent down in the Chesapeake bay area where they get into some seriously big stripers.

For me at least, my goal remains access to cool fishing spots, not being regulated by ferry schedules and getting a bit of a work-out. But who knows? If I was paddling across to Monomoy one day and fish started busting all around me I might be tempted to have a cast or two

I mentioned the possible advantages of a longer rod on another board but got blasted

I guess I'd better not get caught out there with my 10ft 7 wt
