During the week leading up to Christmas and New Years Megan called and told me of her plan to take her friend Cary kayak fishing. She had bought him a new fishing rod and reel for Christmas, and was eager to have him put it to the test on his first ever kayak fishing trip. The challenge was set...and I hoped not to disappoint.
We launched early and didn't paddle 100 yards before seeing fish. The tide was low and water was cold and crystal clear. We all were throwing different lures, from 1/8 oz yellow jig heads with New Penny jerk shads, or 1/8 oz red jig heads with White Pogy swim shads. With just a few casts, everyone started catching fish.
Cary landed several nice redfish, with the nicest being this one over 21". It's tail looked like it belonged on a 30" fish, and was tipped with that beautiful irradescent blue.
Megan was persistent and after a few fish were landed, she caught this nice redfish to put the finishing touches on the trip.
I'm glad to report that Cary's new rod and reel were up for the challenge as they landed several nice redfish. This trip allowed the bar to be set on what will hopefully be another awesome year in kayak fishing trips with first time kayak anglers!
I hope you enjoy the above fishing post and pictures and thank you for visiting AnglersNook.net! Allow me an opportunity to share my passion for kayak fishing with you in my next trip here on the Crystal Coast!
