Good job!

You know, I am beginning to think you kayak guys are trying to prove you can do anything anyone else can do, only in a kayak! LOL

I want to see kayak tuna fishing!

Yes I was standing, it wasn't bad just need to stand in the right spot to balance the yak. Ducking under docks is fun too, especially when the wind switched to the east and blew like it did. I covered a mile+ in about an hour-half. Just need to work out the logistics of how to get gigged flounder off the gig and into the cooler...lol. That was the real challenge.

Steps to remove flounder from gig:

1)open cooler lid.

2)insert flounder stuck on gig

3)close lid

4)quickly snatch gig out of cooler, allowing lid and sidewall of cooler to hold fish.

5)resume normal operation!:letsdrink

I had a soft sided cooler, I think I have the logistics figured out. I'm going to try it again tonight. Soft sided coolers take up less room, I may have to go to a regular one though if tonights trial run doesn't work.



Kreg, it was 20 inches....I posted it in Kayak Wars.....Couldn't find anything that stated I couldn't. Rules say fish taken by legal means from a kayak.
