Kayak fishing

 Kayak fishing

We have been fishing from our kayaks about 4 times so far. Any of you who have been fishing from a kayak knows how tricky it could be if you get something big, esp if you do not have an anchor. The other challenge is how do you get the fish back to shore? We used a bucket but unfortunately did not catch anything worth keeping. The best part of it is the paddle out. The worst part is the paddle back especially if it is against current and you have disk problems in your neck. I keep seeing people here with foot paddle kayaks with nice comfortable seats and wish I could afford one.

I don’t know if I told you about the time we went out kayak fishing and Mark yells …”Shark”… That’s all I needed to here. I made a bee line to shallow water. He yelled again “Can you help me with this thing?”  Here Mark had actually said ” I caught a shark” and all I heard was shark. So I paddled over and helped hold the rod while he pulled it in enough to unhook it. . It was a 2.5 foot black tip shark. He said it was the most fun he ever had fishing. That shark took him for a nice ride around the water way.  I was just glad it was not a bull shark. Yikes.
