Default Navarre offshore flounder massacre

Went out with my neighbor yesterday in the cold weather and 1-3+ seas to put a hurtin on some Navarre flounder - the title of this post was the PLAN. Fished for about 5 hours and when it was all said and done we each caught and released one red snapper and that was it. Pretty dead out there yesterday.

Yeah. The weatherman definitely got it wrong. There were some sets of good size waves out there. I never felt too uncomfortable out ont he water.

It was slightly dicey, bringing it in to the beach. Both I and my neighbor sheared our rudder pins. I had unlocked the rudder and usually pull the rudder about 20-30 feet from the shore, but got hit with a good size wave right as I hit that zone and was too busy trying to keep it together to reach down and pull the rudder up cord. My neighbor came in about 5 minutes after me and had the same issue.

But we both stayed dry, so thats something.

Ron, just a tip, I never would cleat my rudder rope. If you have a sailing rudder (you should if you dont) a wave can hit it just right and pop the pin if its cleated. Ive had it happen a few times and its not a repair thats easily done on the water. If its calm its fine but if it starts to get dicey Id uncleat it if I were you.

I have to get back out there. I have only run the yak out once in the heavy surf. Went out to mark fish to see where they were. Picked up a new to me kayak and haven't even fished it yet. You want to get back out and looking for someone to fish with give me a shout. I am am itching to get out now!
