Kayaking - The Rock Channel

Postby karl k » Sat Jun 13, 2009 11:35 pm

Due to injury I haven't been fishing since last September so I decided it was time to get out and give it a try, plus I wanted to try out a kayak I got last year but hadn't launched yet. So i got what frozen peeler & softies I had and headed for the Rock Channel to see if and smoothies wanted to play
Here's the kayak ready to launch
Image

The paddle or should that be peddle to the mark was easy as you are going with the tide, on the way I passed quite a few wading through the water making their way onto the bank

A leisurely peddle to the mark
Image
Got there, anchored up and put two rods out both baited with crab, I'd brought the smaller anchor and it wasn't holding, I'd forgot the flow is strong around there, I let nearly all the anchor line out and this helped get a grip. It wasn't long before the left hand rod was nodding and this fella came aboard
Image
Image

I rebaited and re-cast, within a few minutes the other rod was going and another smoothie was on
Image

The fishing was hectic, here's a quiet moment waiting for a bite
Image

It wasn't long before the left hand rod was knocking again and another smoothie was on its way in, my god can these things pull hard!!
Image
Image

No sooner had I rebaited the rod and cast out abd it was going again, this one was bigger and didn't want to have its photo taken - what a scrap!
Image
Image
Image

The tide was starting to slacken and these fellas started nibbling the baits
Image
It was time to go home, a great couple of hours and the weather was spot on too :D :D
Image

Two starries, two common smoothies and a flattie, its tope time tomorrow!!! :D
The futures bright its blue 'n' white

Actually Millsy its got a nice set of low profiles to get it down to the water :D :D
Image

If you look at the first photo above you'll see my feet are on a set of pedals which drive a set of flippers under the kayak, so it was a leisurely peddle not Paddle!! - the link shows how it works

Kamberliya,
The inflatables will be fairly heavy and I can't help but think they don't mix with hooks, knives & cuda teeth!! I've just got back from Florida so I'm really jealous, the following USA sites should help.
