WB Yak Attack
A buddy of mine is really into kayak fishing, and has two Hobies. He took me up Thursday and we spent 11 hours on the water. Probably pedaled around twenty miles. Long day for my first trip in a kayak. Started out of the south marina, trolled out to the island where there was a fleet of boats bottom bouncing. Didn't touch a fish until we were within about a half mile from the north dike. Went over to the flat south of the north marina, down through Freeway Bay, then back to to north dike to about 2/3 mile from the light pole, then back over the island on the way back to the south marina. Ended the day with 9 wipers between us, my buddy caught two catfish and a dink smallie. Biggest wiper was 23". No walleye at all. Saw a guy with a couple of nice eyes he got bottom bouncing I think in Freeway Bay. My first trip this year, nice to see things picking up a bit.

Saw you guys out there on Thursday, around the Island. You guys did better on the wipers than we did. Were you long lining your lures?

You covered a lot more water than I do. My longest days take me from the north marina to the outlet, along the dike to the lightpole and then straight across "the nothingness" back to the marina. Five or six miles, tops. But then, I may be older than you, too.

Sounds like you really liked the Hobie. No surprise!

Nice setup, I have only tried Willard on my Kayak once. I should give it another try.

I typically run my SR5s and SR7s between 70' and 100' back. Mike runs his 30'-40' back, I think.

Maybe, but I doubt it.

OK, do you have any idea how fast you were going? We were using that exact size and type of lure but trolling 2.3 mph.

SR7s in chartreuse, walleye, black and silver, etc, at about 2.5MPH, +/-. I don't think speed matters much. In my boat I troll 2.8MPH at idle on my Merc 115HP EFI.

2 to 3 mph is just "walking" pace in a Hobie. Just pedal like you'd walk, and that's it. Effortless trolling.

I'm 71, Paddler. You?

Yep, it's pretty easy. My back gets sore, though. I like my boat better in some ways because you can get up, walk around, etc. Also, autopilot and a bimini top make it really nice.

You got me. I'm 66.

I think I've seen your posts on another board. Not sure if it was ifish or the far right one. They don't like my kind much on the latter.

If you are the same Paddler, I can understand why.

Yep, the very same.
