I am thinking about headding out on sat. depending on the weather. I hope the weather predictions are wrong and it remain nice out. If that is the case, I will hit the flats on Sat. All are welcome to join me. give me a buz if you want to tmeet up.
What flats do you guys mainly fish? Love shallow water fishing but have only been to a couple that require a boat East of the Coleman Bridge. Poquoson? I bought a kayak this fall and hope to find some redfish, trout, bluefish, or anything? any help appreciated
My schedule is very unaccomodating with some major travel coming up, and trying to get things in order before I leave, but as soon as they start catching them on artificials I'm going to give it a try. I do not want to go paddle out and then drift or anchor with bait all day. Right now it is a bait bite, period.
I'd wait until later in the season when the fish are up by Perryville Park for that yak. It's certainly fishable from that kayak, but you will not be as mobile as the longer/faster kayaks. You can usually catch stripers within a few hundred yards of Perryville Park as the C&R season progresses. I have not heard of much action there yet... more on the southern part of the flats... which is not easily accessible without a fast kayak.
Then again, if you're in great paddling shape... who am I to put limitations on you. I've done 20+ mile days (on the GPS) looking for fish on the flats, and didn't die... but that was in a 16 foot yak. Still, if I was out there and saw a fleet of boats catching a few miles away, I'd grin and bear it and paddle that barge down there if I was you.
