Had a great day at Hartshorne lake in SE Oklahoma today with my versatile Wave-walk fishing kayak. When I arrived at about 3:00pm everyone had left the lake due to the wind. A couple of folks who were just leaving warned me not to go out. The W is no problem in the wind and I paddled easily out to the lily pads where I parked my W right in a patch of them to secure my position without needing an anchor in the strong wind.
With the wind to my back I could cast into the “lanes” between patches of lily pads and harvest the fattest of the perch that I had come to fish for.
With an ultra light spinning rig a bobber, a #6 snelled hook, a split shot weight and some red worms I began catching slabbers one right after another!
The windy conditions were no setback for the W and I had the lake to myself.
I culled out the biggest fish, and let the rest go for another day.
Of all the fish available for eating in Oklahoma, for myself, nothing beats a pan fried bream and there are many members of this tasty albeit boney species throughout the state to enjoy.
The Wave-walk kayak is so easy to move around and tote to and from the car/truck that even if you’re only blessed with half a day or just a couple of hours you can fish in your window of opportunity due to the ease of getting to and from your favorite fishing spots.
Wave-walk has revolutionized my favorite past time with the W kayak as my simple, stable and efficient answer to a fishing platform, especially on small easily accessed lakes and bayous.
