Aaron landing a couple of large and legal Reds using the ample room of his Wavewalk kayak, and then taking his W to ride the surf. Aaron just had to try it out and I have to say… he rode with great adeptness??!! haha. I was not as brave or willing to scuff my beautiful W up.
Bob Smaldone and Art Myjak hit the water with me at first light in Ozello yesterday.
Bob got a nice over-slot redfish that Art got a nice shot of, and Art got 2 under-slot reds.
I had a big red crash down on my topwater lure twice but missed both times (darn-it).
I did manage a few small trout.
The wind kicked up in the late morning so we were glad to have our Wavewalks to facilitate the paddle back.
I also had to attach a picture I took Monday of a fellow fishing off a pier in the Ozello area who enjoyed the company of a friendly blue heron looking for scraps.
I like to fish for reds in very shallow water, up to 12″ deep. The W500 is the perfect kayak for that, since it moves well in the grass and weeds. Sitting higher and standing up give me a better view of the water around me, so I can see where the fish are, or may be.
Had a nice day on Fish Creek in Ozello with an overcast sky keeping the temp down. Got 1 snook and 3 reds, but no trout so no slam. Had another big snook jump and throw my lure in my face right next to the W. My friend Art got a few trout – said he missed a 24 incher (he wouldn’t exaggerate would he).
