We hit the kismet launch to test out our new kayak. A native ultimate 14.5 tandem. I picked it up from Estero River Outfitters. It took some time getting used to having the extra weight in the boat. I was still able to sit up on my captains perch as long the wife stayed fairly still. Though I didn't try to stand. Maybe next time. As for fishing...I came up empty for the day but the wife got a few nice sized trout. Probably because I was paddling while she fished and napped. My buddy had no problem killing it with a few large reds(26",28"), one 21" snook and a hand full of trout. Most of the fish were picked up along a newly explored path. Can't wait to get out and explore more spots.
Also Hog Alert..When were almost at the end of journey when we passed by a set of moving mangroves that held a large hog. If you know how to fish kismet watch out for hogs at the beginning tunnel.
