Good news bad news

Recommended Posts

Good news: Got on the lake on the yak
Bad news: 10-15 mph winds with gusts to 25
Good news: fished the protected coves
Bad news: not even a nibble
Good news: No good news
Bad news: Gust caught bimini top, snagged rod & reel in holder behind my seat, launched it overboard
Good news: Guy on shore saw it and says hey you lost a rod, and it was in relatively shallow water in a narrow channel
Bad news: Forgot power cord for the fish finder, can't mark the spot
Good news: Guy on shore tells me where to go
Bad news: Wind is blowing me off the spot
Good news: Had 2 other combos, combed the site
Bad news: Came up empty
Good news: Of the 3 combos on hand, the one that went over was the cheapest
Best news: Continued fishing and finally landed ONE largemouth. Not a biggie but this day would have sucked a lot more without that.
Bonus points: Bald eagle sighting.

Haggard : 1

Lake: 0

 

I almost lose a rod nearly every time I get in a small boat, I can't imagine a yak.  I already bought some of those Cush-it rod floats for my expensive combos, because I have dunked those a few times and caught them at the last second.

 

Makes me think if I get a boat, I should just put a snorkel/mask in storage...

You got it 100%. From now on, the snort-kel and mask ride in the dry storage bin at the front of the yak, always. What a difference between snort-kel/mask vs blindly scraping the bottom with a pokey stick or casting randomly with the treble hooks. No comparison. It's a whole new world under the surface, really amazing. Even with the fear factor of those killer turtles in the muck down there ;)
