When I bought my kayak I new I would have fun fishing with my brother who bought a kayak at the same time I did.
Well last night though fishing was great as we caught a bunch of catfish and that was cool. On are paddle to are spot we saw a ton of ducks and geese but the best was seeing a Bald Eagle. OMG it was awesome. I soared out of a tree and was just gliding as it went to another tree branch to check out the area. What a beautiful sight to see. Seeing the otter was cool as well. The water snake I walked by in the real shallow area didn't thrill me as much lol.
The kayak has been one of the best things I bought in a long time and the money invested in my yak, my gear, and fishing supplies is about 1300 bucks but the memories already have been worth every dime!!!!!!!!!!!

glad you're having fun. when the fish are biting it IS all about the fish! my other fave when they are not biting is being able to access waterways that others can't. real cool wild life etc. back off the beaten paths.

Wait until you experience a Manatee exploding next to you, a Humpback Whale breaching yards away, a pod of dolphin corraling bait mere feet away and running under your yak, a Sea Otter rolling over in the Kelp and watching you as you go past, or an Osprey diving for fish next to you.
Scared by bass|

Well Friday evening me and my brother went to the river to fish and while padding out to a group of rocks a bass jumped out of the water twice and was inches from my kayak. I wasn't expecting it so it startled me. lol
Ditto: yak is my best toy ever|

Wyd, you said it well! My kayak is the most pure pleasure fun toy I've ever bought in my life. Best money ever spent on an item of outdoor gear.
Lake Fishing this Morning|

I was fishing a local lake this morning in my kayak. I was fishing with a plastic worm and it was slow until I changed to a red and black culprit. My second cast I hooked a pretty good sized bass. He pulled me into a weed bed and a tree. I had to change the drag and fend off of a dead tree all at the same time. It was great!!! I landed him in the kayak. What a thrill.

Do it in the dark|

I love fishing at night especially when the fish are biting good. But don't forget to stop lay back and look up at the stars. Most of the time the powerboat traffic has faded away at night so it's pretty safe if you carry a light and it gets quiet too. You can hear people talking like they are close to you and they will be on the other side of the lake. The crickets chirpping and an occational big fish jumping, it's great!!
