    Got the skunk off a new yak

    I added a Native Redfish 10 to my arsenal after discovering that my Hobie PA wasn't the best shallow water boat. But until today, having fished the boat only one time previously, I hadn't caught anything out of it. That changed today after a slow morning in west Broward. I caught 4 largemouths up to 3 lbs and two catfish of 7.2 and 11.2lbs on a spinnerbait.

    Tried a buzzbait and jumped off one small fish and pulled the hook out of 3 more on a worm. I had several misses on account of fish short striking the spinnerbait and no trailer hook. Was only out for 4.5hrs.

    Here's the first one from the new boat.

    Nice catch. It is always good to break in a new kayak. I like the catfish hitting a spinner bait.

    That's a nice Yak thought it would be perfect for my son who's 9, and if Dad ever gets his PA 12, it will make a great skinny water yak. Best of luck with it!
