Default Hits the Flats again!

I hit the Eglin flats this morning and had a little fun. It started off slow with some relentless hardhead cats. Then around 10 am I caught a 21" trout followed by a 24" red. Just when I thought the fishing was improving, a group of tourists in a pontoon boat from a Destin rental place parked right on top of me and unleashed everyone into the water. The entire bay was open but they picked by me...figures.

PS: Popping cork with live shrimp!

I've been wanting to paddle one. How is the maneuverability for inshore? I'm currently in a Cuda 12 but want something that could also possibly do BTB.

Pontoon boats and jet skis seem to have some kinda of autopilot program installed in them, to find the only boat in the bay and make a b-line to it. Lol At least you caught some fish before they found you.

The Kraken is great, smooth and easy to paddle. Is is a bit heavy to pull over the beach but I manage. So far, loving it!

Great day.
Too bad you couldnt have picked up a flounder to end the day with a triple.
