    2/10 Lagoon

    Today was kind of like summer (only not 100 degrees) the water level was up and it was calm in the morning, caught a trout before sunrise and then it rained in the afternoon.
    Anyway, fished middle lagoon with fairly good success caught a trout and a few reds really early. The water was up by a noticeable amount and very very clear, just beautiful. Fish were tailing and I got several great shots at singles, small groups and one school. Saw a few blue crabs nervously wandering the flat and several shrimp jumping up around tailing fish as well as plenty of baitfish... they are eating GOOD out there! Caught ten reds, one trout and one stingray... definitely a new fly rod first for me. got off the water before 1:00 and of course it started raining as soon as I showed up at the ramp. Hope some of you guys got out today because this weekend looks terrible plenty of time to prepare for next weekend though.

    I stay seated, with practice it really isn't a big deal. When you shop for kayaks look for ones without any crap on the bottom, like hatches, or rod holders you want to keep the deck as clean as possible for your line. I use a heritage redfish, which is now just a Native Watercraft redfish, there is also the Native Ultimate which is great for fly fishing, and a lot of people are able to stand in them
