Lake Belton, Texas Yesterday

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone! Haven't posted in awhile and finally went out for my 3rd day this year, yesterday 5/9/2016. Just started trying something new which is kayak fishing so I can access more waters rather than bank fishing. Had some success bringing in 3 myself a 1 for my brother. Not what I was hoping for but a day spent fishing is a lot better than a day not! Also the water was awfully choppy and the wind was moving. Hopefully we can bring in some slobs this season. Any advice on kayak fishing is appreciated or any tips in general. Going back to the great resources offered on the site to refresh my brain a bit.

Nice report.

I can't agree more with @A-Jay, wear a PFD
100% of the time.

I know it can get hot and sweaty, but that's 
a tiny irritant compared to capsizing and hitting
your head on something that knocks you out
and you drown.

I see too many kayakers and canoeists on the
water w/o a PFD on. 

Of course you only need to have one with you,
not *on* you. But it will only work if it is *on*
you...

Thanks for the tips guys. We both have vests in our kayaks but you're right it doesn't do us any good if we're not wearing them.

As for other tips, if you have laydowns and
docks, they make great targets for wacky,
drop shotting and TX rigging - jigs, too.

If your lake has shallows (6' and less), you
could think about carrying an anchor pole
either DIY or you can buy one online.

I find mine indispensable on the waters I
fish.

If I had to do it again, I'd look for the DIY
that uses retractible golf ball retrievers.

You can get them in in various lengths, 
and it is much cheaper than buying one 
outright. Though the one I have is the same
material as a Power Pole - so it is really
tough.

I have an old lure retriever that I snapped the wire off of I'm going to have to try this with.
