No love from the Yellows for me but they did put on show for about 10 seconds all around me. The bass were hungry for mackerel.

How do you ensure you (in the kayak) are visible to boaters? I've used the headlamp before for early morning launches at the Shores but it always seems a bit janky and incomplete.

Good advice ~ thanks gents. I've got a bailer I keep with me to keep my "bait tank" (er - plastic bucket) aerated. I think that will suffice if the boat is taking on water.

Seems wise to carry a manual bilge pump but what other situations have you seen it useful beyond a shark puncturing the yak?

On the water knife

I am hearing it is best practice to gill and gut fish on the water. Sounds great since that removes a messy step before you get home. Any recommendations for an on-the-water knife? Safety is my top...

Launched about 1:30 pm. Minor waves, a bit of a breeze which was nice as it cooled things down. Made 4 spanish and 1 greenback pretty quickly and arc'd my way out to the NW corner. Seemed to be very...

Thanks for the advice all! On the dropshot I was using a live bait hook not a long-shank (per advice I got on using this setup for surf fishing, so not the same). I can see how the longer shank can...

7/9 LJ - Nada

Beautiful morning, bait was easy. Dragged one high and one low around the NW corner, down south a bit, round again, then out where the birds were working. Under the birds it was mostly barracuda,...

Got out about 3 pm on Sunday, had it basically to myself once the New Seaforth left. Bait was thankfully easy to catch outside the reserve, a mix of small spanish and greenbacks. Dragged one high...
