Finally caught a few in the tidal flood, by Kevin Eastman

Sunday night the high tide was after dark but we had a nice east wind that brought the water in early so I launched for a sunset cruise to the flats. I found a couple of nice reds that came home with me for dinner. I got the last one just as the lights went out and had a nice paddle home in the moon light.

I got out again this morning for few more hours and the fish were on the flats. The water was calm as glass and no wind to speak of so conditions were perfect. It’s not too often it’s that nice for the floods this time of year. I missed number of them but did manage to get a couple of more before the water receded.

I finally got around to make a better standing platform for my seat. It’s a bit longer so I can move a bit better than with my shorter one.

Big Birthday Red and Slam, by Gary Rankel

I got my second biggest redfish in 10 years today, my birthday, as part of a slam with a few seatrout, a nice snook, and a few smaller reds and other species. It took an hour to get the big dude in.

I have a policy of always buying something for myself on my birthday so I can count on getting at least one thing I like. No need to do that today.

Fall is here – whoopie!!

37 inch striper caught on a fly in my Wavewalk kayak, by Bill Davenport

New way to catch bigger fish…

I rigged up my own concoction that’s supposed to function like a go-pro camera. Still working the bugs out. Of course when I got the biggest fish yet out of the W I left the camera at home. Still looks rather nice cradled in my W kayak though.
