I love it! It makes for a enjoyable read. One request, add some stuff in the blogs that are unique to yak fishing. i can see that kayak fishing is really starting to explode so there will be plenty of newbies(like me) that could use yaking tips and tricks:letsdrink
Good stuff. I wouldn't mind seeing rigging tips for fish targeted from a Yak. I am new to yak fishing and plan on doing some gulf fishing but I really don't know how to rig properly. Any tips would be great. thanks
Dude dont give me that too cool for school shit. You know I taught you everything you know! Plus you never saw Sosin on a kayak! He gets knowledgable captains to put him on fish and then tells them how to catch em! I put you on the fish and tell you how to catch them! If you got 20 messages a day asking questions you would eventually provide answers if you are not an :moon
Strong words from a man with no boat this close to go time. How far can you see from that yak? I'll remember this next time there's four rods out of commission in the tower and stunned eels on the hard top, and cobia swimming around the boat. I'll be the onedriving in the tower asking if this is going in the blog... someones gotta keep your head from floating off into space.
What the hell were you doing up at 3:58 am?!? Dreaming about something Brown wake you up? In response to you last message, Tim is the best of us, but he's like 100 yrs old, and your the luckiest, most motivated, and competitive SOB I know. Oh, and your pretty confident. I think your beyond Mark Sosin now... maybe...Rick Murphy.
I was at work! Im guessing the time is off. As for "lucky" there is no such thing...just putting yourself in position for opportunity:moon You guys are haters!Tim you can take your shit and put it in Lee's garage! You are also going to need to buy a truck and find a new spot to fish sunday! Lee I passed all thejig crap to the arts and crafts man. After all the kind words this is the treatment I get. Why dont you guys put your glasses on so I dont get another "lucky" First Shot!
Hey Chris, haters? Heck no! I fully respect the blog. The tone that you take is great. You have fully earned the right in my eyes to sound authoritative on the topic of Kayak fishing. Success speaks for it's self. You will always have friends that say to them selves, man I taught that guy that and that and that, but heck man, we all have to learn from some one. One of the things that you may want to cover due to the explosion of growth in this segment of fishing is things like kayak selection, and possibly safety and surf launching and landing. Also providing links that you find useful. I would like for you to cover how you use a fish finder. I think this would be really good because most kayak fishermen are first attracted to the sport because they have talked themselves out of buying a boat and are not coming from a boat fishing background.
Thanks for passing along things that you have learned.
BTW the last line on the most recent blog was hilarious.
Not sure what the popcorn is for! We are joking here but I see how someone could think we are serious. We crack on each other pretty good at times. Thanks for the ideas Bill! Ill try to add some alot more links and will write something new probably tomorrow. There is a new entry for the IFA trounament if anyone cares to read it.
Hey Tex, I left a comment for ya on your blog the other day. Great info and you've convinced me to buy a yak! I did a good bit of whitewater, but never been in salt, or fishing from one for that matter. Man, I have A LOT of questions, anyplace you recommend for getting the basic do's and don'ts ?
