Well I finally worked up the nerve to take out my Kayak today. I started catching Bluegill pretty quickly. After several of those I managed this guy. He's small, but I'm proud of him. Many thanks to all the folks I've been bugging for information and an extra thanks to Byron for those special poppers! Oddly enough this water is right in my front yard. I was able to put in and paddle back up pretty easy. I'll probably put in somewhere up river next time and float back home.
The only problem I had was the anchor system. I stuggled to put the boat at angles that I wanted. Any tricks to anchoring? I'm thinking about moving mine to the back, just for predictability.
