    Haha, I've lost a few like that! When it's a really nice fish, I keep the hook in the fishes mouth until I measure and/or put it on the stringer if I plan on keeping it. That way if the fish gets...

    Thanks for the info. I've done a fair amount of research now and it seems like the Torqueedo is the way to go. It defeats the purpose if your throwing a 40 lb battery into your kayak only to go the...
  3. How fast does your trolling motor get you going?

    I'm thinking about getting a trolling motor for my Trident Ultra 4.3. It's a fairly large yak (14'). I love to paddle, but the reality is that it really limits the territory that I can fish. If I...

    I will say that this is the hardest strike I've ever had with the pole in my hand. Not the hardest I've ever had while fishing. That prize goes to a fish this March. I was trolling an X-RAP 8 in...

    "Football stripers" is an apt term for the fish I caught. Short but powerful. Like a fullback. Probably weighed more than a lot of keepers.

    Yes, that speed is a standard for stripers. People bump it up to 4 mph for Spanish and Blues. I do okay with around 2.5 mph on some days. I think Alan references it in his book that you don't have...
  7. 19" Striper scores hardest strike I've ever had

    I was retrieving a Rapala XR10 near some sunken structure and BAM! My first thought was a really big bluefish. Shortly after the strike I felt the telltale quick head pops of a smaller striper and...

    Any bluefish in mid-bay yet?

    I'm a big fan of these fish. My wife makes a mean blue cake which is essentially a crab cake with bluefish meat in them. My buddy also has a cold smoker and has really been itching to smoke some...

    iPhone 7 mount for kayak

    I know. It sounds terrible. Why would you want to bring your phone with you on your peaceful fishing trip? Well, the truth is, I don't! I'd much rather leave it in the car or better yet at home....

    Hawg vs CNR - Round 2

    Trolling a paddle tail and a 4" diving plug (Windcheater Bomber). CNR hits diver and pulls me around for a half mile or so. Went to pull in the paddle tail and it was snagged on the ray as well.

    Haha! I said the EXACT same thing out loud to myself.

    Never seen a kayak with an outboard motor on it! :cool:

    I just bought two of those reels. Damn near broke the bank but damn if they're not worth every penny.

    I wish, but I highly doubt it. The battery is fully charged and occasionally when I turn the fishfinder on after having what happened in the video about a dozen times, it will stay on and work for...
  15. Garmin Striker 4dv shuts off after turning it on.

    I could go into detail, but the video shows it all. Luckily, I decided not to let it piss me off and I went and caught my limit in about 10 minutes after I filmed this video.

  16. Anyone fished this spot recently? Was thinking about trying it tomorrow.

    If you can't tell from the image, I'm looking to fish the drop off about a mile East of Holland Point. It goes from 11' to 30' in a very short distance. This screams large striper resting...

    If you took the picture with a phone, you just need to go in and edit the orientation of it from the phone.

    More people need to let their girls take pictures with the fish. In this case, she...

    Big blues in the bay?

    I keep hearing reports of large bluefish in the Chesapeake. Two years ago was a decent year for smaller ones, but last year they didn't seem to turn left when they reached the bay.

    It seems early...

    Yeah, the bite has definitely picked up in the shallows after the rains. I've attached a flag to the back of my kayak now so I will be visiting the deeper waters now when the waters heat back up.

    Chesapeake Bay = A woman

    You absolutely cannot figure it out. When you think you have, you're almost definitely wrong. Today the bite was on. There was wind where I was fishing, muddy water from recent rain, I fished in...

    I rinsed with peroxide, put neosporine on them, and used band aids. There were 6 different cuts on one hand. They feel much better today.

    So it seemed like a minor detail not worth mentioning yesterday, but the cuts on my hands from the ray going on runs when I was trying to hold him by the braid are deep and painful today. I can...

    Brutal Cow-Nosed Ray Story
