With all the news being about Hurricane Irma, I just wanted to take a moment and wish you all to be safe regardless of whether you are evacuating or hunkering down like me. I'm sure everyone has a plan for securing their homes and vehicles, but remember to secure your kayaks! If they can't fit in the house, I remember someone filling their kayak with water from the hose last hurricane to weigh it down and also chaining it to a tree. Don't bother with tarps/kayak-covers as they will just catch the wind and help the storm lift your kayak/canoe and toss it about like a rag-doll.
On a lighter note, if you had any successful pre-hurricane fishing sessions, go ahead and share them :cool:
I got a nice kingfish and about four almacos (only kept one) on Sunday out of Pompano Beach. Waves were less than a foot, current was slow, and the bite was deep: everything was on vertical jigs, live bait didn't even get touched. Live bait bite might have been different if I had a downrigger though.
Be safe y'all
