Morning blitz, by Bill Davenport

The early bird gets the fish. I’m an early riser and it’s so easy to load the W kayak up that I have no excuse to not get out there. It helps to live three miles from my favorite launching spot. I can put the W and gear on the car and be on the water in less than half an hour.
The last two days have had terns working over baitfish that the stripers are feasting on.
15 fish yesterday, 4 today. All in the 20” to 24” range.

Light tackle nirvana, for me at least. . .

Night fishing got me a striper I could keep, by Bill Davenport

Well, I finally got a keeper this season. Lousy photos, but I was in a hurry to try and find the camera and get the fish back in the water. I don’t care for night fishing all that much, but that’s when the fish are most active at this time of year. (And I feel pretty comfortable in my W.)
Still planning to motorize my W kayak.

No legal stripers yet… by Bill Davenport

Hope all is well.
This has been a less than perfect spring, however I’ve been out in W trying.
Quite a few little fish but no legal stripers yet.
I put Flying Tiger motif on, as if the Wavewalk didn’t attract enough attention as is. More to come.

It’s even more fun when you’re the only one catching fish, by Bill Davenport

Well, they’re not striped bass, but it sure is good to get out in the “W”. The fresh water guys were all agog at the Wavewalk. “Is it tippy?” is the most common question. No, no, no is the answer. It’s even more fun when you’re the only one catching fish.

Wavewalk’s web blast ad for On-The-Water Magazine readers

Here’s a new ad emailed today to all On-The-Water (OTW) Magazine subscribers:

Ad for motorized fishing kayak - Dowsize and Upgrade

The content is self explanatory, and we direct it to all anglers in New England and nearby states in the Northeast that don’t like the idea of fishing out of a common kayak (sit-in, SOT or hybrid) for obvious reasons such as lack of stability and comfort, and reasons that are particular to this region which are the cold climate and the popularity of offshore fishing.
The idea is that local anglers can use our W kayak as a lightweight, high performance car top boat rather than as just a kayak, and say goodbye to trailers and boat ramps…
