Default New Hobie with reports

Hey everyone! I just got started into the kayak fishing world! Picked up my Hobie Revolution last Friday from Key Sailing. Me and a buddy headed out to Blackwater last Sunday for the first morning on the Hobie. Found good concentrations of trout in 4-6 foot of water. All fish were caught off the bank a ways. We were using Gulp! Jerk shads rigged on a 1/4 oz. jig head. We ended up with 14 trout (12"-22"), 1 flounder (17"), and one rat red. The first pic was the biggest trout of the day (22") and my first fish from the Hobie. The other was just a cool pic of the kayaks.

I decided to run out this afternoon for an hour or so after work and ended up with 1 redfish (16") and 2 trout (8" & 16"). First redfish from the Hobie!
