im guess im still getting used to fishing in a yak.
there just seemed soooo much going on with rods anchors nets baits fish knives tackle and waves :shock: . i havent yet worked out the best method to keep things simple when fishing km's out in the kayak...but im slowly getting there.
At 1 stage i hooked a little flattie who de-hooked himself in my yak, which in itself was great, but with about 2" water in the yak from a couple of over eager waves the bloody 'lil fish swam under my seat (gave me a great idea for a 'live bait well') :lol: ,oh well i knew he wasnt going anywhere and 20 minutes later sure enough he swims back out.i was killing myself laffing. another time another little fish, got him in the yak where he proceded to thrash and throw himself all around the yak and snagged the hook on my leg, anchor rope and tackle bag. BASTARD :evil: , so now im getting occasionally swamped with waves (kayak kept swinging round so it was side on to waves) the other rod was showing signs of having hooked up and ive got a devil of a flattie aiming to hook up to anything it can in the yak...fishing with 2 rods can be a hell of a job when the fish are on the bite. I had also bought a squid jig and wanted to try my hand at catching a squid but with the conditions there was no bloomin way.next time maybe.
And im wondering how many of you other yakko's have paddled around only to find you left the anchor out and just dragged it the last km... i couldnt work it out, i was buggered and thought it was a hell of an effort until i turned around to drop anchor...and its already in the water :oops: .

Geez i love this sht.
