Default First trip in my new pro angler

Tue. 11-15-2011

Well I had this kayak for a week but wanted to mount the bottom machine before I took her out.
This is the first hobie I have ever even sat in. Yes this boat is heavy and it is big!

I really just wanted to test out the Garmin echo 300c color bottom machine I got for it and man this thing is SWEET! For 200 bucks you can't beat this unit. I launched at shoreline park and headed south torwards the diving pelicans. Marked tons of bait and judging by the pops on the surface they were menhaden. Pulled a stretch 25 and another diving plug for a couple miles....nothing.

Started heading back and see a lot of pelicans diving on one spot and a couple boats hooked up and I knew it had to be bullreds. Got close and decided to have some fun with my sostace 4000 and try out a small wax wing. Insatnt hookup. Quick 10 min fight and released about a 15 lb red. It was getting close to time for me to pick my daughter up so one more fish and decided to get some video on my gopro since I didn't get any pics of the first fish.

Sorry for the quality, this gopro is almost 4 yrs old and non HD. Those fish eye lens makes everything look smaller including the waves. I realized later I should have had the camera pointed down more and as you can tell I haven't used it in a while.

Thanks for reading my report and hopefully more to come soon.

Dustin
