    New Kayak: Now I'm Really Hooked!

    It looks like my love for kayak fishing has finally become an addiction. After becoming the proud new owner of a Wilderness Systems 14 Commander a few weeks back, I have been trying and trying to get on the water. Busy schedule it seems. Finally, about a week ago, I was able to put her on top of the Jeep and head out in search of some reds that had been (and still are) my mind for quite some time.

    I have been finding some redfish pushing water and occasionally tailing, a pleasant surprise for me. The last new years I have fished hard around the St. Lucie and this is the first year I have consistently found the reds. I have fished them in my buddies skiff, but nothing was quite like standing up in the kayak, as silent as can be, and pitching to a fish just a cast away.

    I have been out there a couple times in the past week and done fairly well. No pictures of me here, they are on a buddies camera, hopefully will get them soon. Been fishing with a couple different groups of people, all of which make the experience that much better. I think I have even made a couple believers in kayak fishing. I hope to be posting here quite often. Here are some pictures, enjoy!

    Thanks guys! Glad to be back. Many know me in the Southeast forum as "NoSlack". Without a boat the last year or so, I have found a new love in kayaking. Most importantly, I'm saving loads of dough in gas money!

    I too am hooked and would much rather be in my kayak vs. a boat! While in my kayak I have just about no boundaries. The deep blue water of the Atlantic is what I consider my recliner! Welcome to NMZ!
