Default Pier to Pier trip.

ok here's the official thread.

Saturday August 31st, Pensacola pier to Navarre Pier kayak trip.

what i would recommend bringing.
two trolling rods. one with a deep diver and one with a duster rig or just trebles to troll a blue runner/cig.

one rod on stand by to toss a jig or lure to busting bobo or jacks or anything else we might come by. small white or pink pompano jigs work well for this.

one bait rod. you might find some structure and having a rod on stand by to hook up a bait and drop down will come in handy and cut time on working that spot.

bait tanks. not sure if im bringing mine, but it will come in handy for live blue runners and cigs. dead baits work too but blue runners like to spin sometimes.

Food! bring enough food to last the day! i can tell you there is nothing like a peanut butter and banana sandwich with a nice sweet tea to wash it down mid day on the yak. bring atleast a gallon of water and a gatorade to replenish electrolites.

Ice/coolers. we'll probably get into some kings early and you'll want to keep them cold. i have a game bag and frozen water bottles/ice packs to load mine and maybe a couple others. if you can fit a cooler or have a bag i'd bring it.

I plan on being at Pensacola pier at 3am. unload and be in the car by 3:30am (after meeting people and designating a gear watch). park at Navarre pier by 4:15 and back at Pensacola by 5am. Launch on or before 5:30am and make bait at the end of the pier as the sun comes up. we should make it to Navarre by 2pm. I troll pretty slow, a paddler can pass me up and not break a sweat.

there are areas to stop as well. about mid way there is the old ranger station. you can see it from the water because of all the building. easy landing and it has restrooms/picnic tables. another stop is portefino. there is a flag pole with speakers on it and you can see it from several hundred yards out. there is a restroom there.

no, they are one of the better shark baits. i hardly eat anything really. Cobia, snapper, blacktip and grouper is all i've kept to eat.

I am seriously thinking about doing this but I just dont think im gear ready yet. I just bought two king rigs and really dont even know how to properly use them lol. Im sure I will regret missing this chance at what sounds like a really fun trip. I would hate to get out there and be a burden to others asking a million questions and how to's ha ha. Just boating fish is a challenging to me.

All of you thinking about staying home because you don't have a peddle yak MTFU (Man The F... U.) J/K!! This is a fun trip not a race. I was going to rent a peddle boat but now Im going to take the Blue Bullet just for fun!!!! If my damn near 50 year old carcuss can do it so can you. We always watch out for each other and this trip will be no different, don't worry about being left behind or lost at sea! Get your gear ready and lets go on a trip you will never forget! And LP I still have your PFD in the back of my truck. UGLY

My concern is not having a paddle yak, I love my paddle yak ive used a buddies peddle yak and wasnt comfortable with my feet up. My concern is being out there for all that time having no experience in big water or fishing for big game. I fish inshore for trout and reds with super light tackle. This will be the polar opposite of what im accustomed to. I just bought my first big spinning reels last weekend and trolled the bay. So I have very little gear and dont really know where to start. I figure ill show up with a bag of frozen cigs, a few pre-made king rigs and if i can find them some rapala x-raps.

2 big spinning reels
Frozen cigs
rapalas
pre made king rigs
2 small spinning reels rigged for trout lol
