    Looking To Go Fishing

    Got a lot going on this year for my Wedding, but your only about an hour from me. Have no problem going out with ya every once in a while. Unfortunately I work evenings during the weekdays though so weekends are probably better. Let me know and Good Luck!

    What Will I Need?

    PFD, Whistle, Dehooker, Needlenoses, Cooler / fishbag, net (i use a foldable one on yak), and most important Sunblock. My first time out on my Yak I burnt the top of my feet.. OMG the next day of work was terrible lol. And just like a boat make sure you make a float / boat plan in case of emergency.

    Kayak Rigging For Standing In A Kayak

    I saw a video a while back of a guy that made outriggers for his yak that were able to be put in for fishing and taken out for paddleing. It was on youtube. When I get home I'll see if I can find it for ya.

    Fishing Apps

    I have Fishing Companion FL - Saltwater app. it is made by Verona Solutions and has the Fish pictures, limits and info about each. It updates whenever there is a change to a regulation or season. I got it on Google Play Store for free about a year ago and still use it every now and then.

    What brand and weight braid do you use

    15# Spider Yellow on 2 rods and 10# Spider Grey on my light rod. I was given the Braid by my Uncle and have been using it til its gone lol. I have only gotten a few windknots and usually on my light rod rather then my Medium and Med/Heavy.

    Which Color for Top Water?

    I mostly throw the Spook Jr and Ba-donk-a-donkBone with red head and for some reason my Spook Jr in Neon yellow does pretty good lol.
