Ready for Bass.

Postby hh65cdr » Thu Jan 06, 2011 7:44 pm

I think I am equiped to go after the stripers off the beach now. Keep in mind I dont plan on doing anything stupid but if they do get close to the beach on a flat ocean day I will give it a try. I am more nervous about if I did actualy hook up :?:

Tracy
I have hauled some large critters in from the kayak (strongest was probabaly a ray the size of a card table).
having a load on the road actually makes me feel more stable. I think of a tight rope walker with a pole.
I try to keep the boat turned so the fish is to the side, slightly forward of midship. A rudder makes doing that easy, but it can be done with rod position alone.
It also allows you to steer to the bahamas rather than france.
The conch fritters are excellent :D

By the way, I got my hook back from that ray at the side of the kayak - ARC dehooker.
I was just outside the surf line off the bar between fishermans's island and smith island at cape charles.

the bus came by and I got on
that's when it all began

Good stuff BH. I do have a rudder and had not thought about using it in a battle. I just dont want to end up in the breakers even on a flat day. I have not always done well there :lol:

Went out to the beach this am to see what it looked like. It was flat with no waves. Headed back home to get the yak and rod and the wind started blowing. Oh well. Surely I will get a chance with a month off.

JM was thinking the same thing. Big toothy's in that area BH is referencing. Keep toes in the boat! Know a commercial guy down there who had more than a dozen big bull sharks in his pound net (singular) this past year. Tracy, be safe and enjoy the sleight ride!
