Went out to where the pilings start being the double pilings vs. the 4's or 8's. It was breezy, esp. during the posted high tide time. I was having to hide out behind some of the larger pilings until the wind died down a bit. Closer to sunset it was pretty calm. Drifts were pretty quick.
I was using a technique I read about from the CBBT, drop the eel and then paddle slowly to stay in place...manual trolling motor.
I have a little cooler I use for bait...with a bit of ice in a bag at the bottom the eels were pretty calm and I hooked them while still in the cooler...so they couldn't escape...I had visions of them heading out through the scuppers too.
Great report. I fish (LTJ) the bridge a lot out of my kayak (orange OK Prowler or red Wilderness Ride) frequently with a couple friends. Its been a good fall out there but the action has dropped off lately. Its good to know that there are still some quality fish to be had. Weather depending, I may go out Sunday. Might be a good opportunity for a yak fishing meet and greet. Anyone interested?
