Default #384's Maiden Voyage

Decided to take 384 out on her maiden voyage this beautiful afternoon. It's my first time getting out by myself this year. I wasn't to concerned about fishing, I mainly wanted to see how my new kayak rode.

I started out using a swimbait and had zero hits. I then switched to a spook jr. since it was getting close to sunset and not one strike. I tried one last lure before pullin in, MR17. I threw it about 20 yards behind me, gave it 2-3 twitches and BAM! My reel starts screaming and line is peeling off my spool. 20 mins later and after nearly getting spoiled twice, I managed to get her to surface and seen that it was a huge bull red!

From that point, all I could think is how am I going to get it in the boat (I left my big net at home) The fight continued for 30 more minutes and with the help of a Good Samaritan I was able to land the beast. It is the biggest Red I ever caught and I'm glad it was my first catch in 384. The perfect catch to christen the boat.

I snapped some photos, thanked her for the fight and the sore forearm and sent her on her way. Today was a good day!
