Getting out on my newly purchased Hobie Kayak is still exciting in and of itself. Yet after doing well last week with small keeper bass, I was more excited than ever when I launched the kayak yesterday morning.
The air temperature was a balmy 37 degrees. I broke out my gloves as I admired the flat calm conditions of the tidal river I would be fishing.
To my surprise I got off to a very slow start, catching only a few schoolies and spooking a few better looking fish.
I chuckled to myself, recalling how I had told my friend that I planned to catch my share of Stripers, then pick up a few Tautog, and then head to a different spot to try for the first Bluefish of the season.
However as many of you know, even the most well-thought-out plan rarely comes together perfectly, especially during the spring run.
