Hi,
Met up with Wayne for a trip out around Cleveland. Conditions were a bit choppy (between 1-2 ft) - but I tried a few locations - without much sucess.

I think there was simply too much traffic where we were. Large power boats, sail boats, jet skis etc and I believe this would have scared off the snapper.

We did score one tailor who took 3/4 of a pilly on a 2/0 ganged hook. But that was released as it wan't legal.

We ended up calling it when my wife (who's pregnant) became quite sick. Simply too many boats around there adding to the chop.

I believe Wayne got a grinner and lost a few SP's - however we are planning another trip out to a quieter section of the bay next weekend if anyone is interested in joining us.

Two very interesting points to note.
1) Boats make so much damm noise. Can't think why so many boaties believe the bay is empty of fish.....
2) Kayaks are much harder to spot than many people believe or assume. I had a hard time keeping an eye on where Wayne was at times and can easily see a boat having an accident with a kayak.

Thanks for letting me tag along Pheonix. I need to get an anchor so I don't drift all over the place. Made it hard to try and fish.

There were a lot of boats around today and some of them put out some mighty big wakes :shock: I took a rather large wake head on, the first two waves were OK but by the time I got to the bottom of the second wave the third wave was right on top of me and I took a cockpit full of water.

The only fish I scored was a grinner on some squid but he bit me off when I got him along side the yak. Also lost two soft plastics.

My sounder worked, well sort of. I have to glue the PVC pipe together because it kept falling apart, but it passed the test and so did the waterproof box I put it in as it got drowned with the wave also.

Unfortunately, due to the change in ownership of this web site and the lack of response by the owners to my requests to remove my email address from all administrative-level notifications and functionality, I have decided to remove my posts on AKFF. Thank you for the great times, the fantastic learning experiences and the many many fish.
