Being a newbe it see me that the most critical part of a yak outing is in the planning stage. Have read many guide books its important to know when to launch and return. This is most evident durning a moon tide. My question is and I know it depends on the trip, do you come in on*the high and leave with the low? I would think you would want to do this . The window for fishing then becomes rather small if you don't fish out of the yak.
