Who's going on the flats when? After Easter weekend if the weather warms it should be perfect.

Susky

The Susquehanna flat from Havre de Grace. I am waiting for weather that permits kayak fishing. I need a fix and I think it will require a day off work.

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.

The monsoon we had last night wont help any.

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.

"barge" That reinforces my thoughts towrds looking for something a bit more streamline. i'll me keeping my eyes on the bord for some action and yaks for sale :)

Maybe instead of worrying about elecs...I'll focus on the yak part
