Does anyone routinely yak the Bay Bridge/SPSP area this time of year ............ or further into November?

Really interested in trying my hands at targetting some big stripers around the pilings. Might have an oppertunity to get out the next Sat or Sun (11/1 or 11/2).

With the average weather this time of year - I don't think sweat pants and a t-shirt will cut it like last time. How about a full body wetsuit with neoprane wading shoes? Covered up by some windpants and a windbreaker as obvious protection from both the elements and to peoples eyeballs from having to gaze upon my bodacious (which means "beer" in this example) physique accentuated in form fitting stretchy material.

Considering trying to get out that weekend of the 1rst or 2nd. Anyone have any experiences for that time of year and area? How is the fishing (historically)?

Would anyone be willing to join me? Would need a yakking partner to satisfy rule #1 of kayaking :fishing:

Update this post if you will. This Sunday will be tough for me but not necessarly impossible. Let me know how you are leaning and I will see what I can do on my end.

Wet suit with windbreaker sufficient you think? I know it's not "cold" yet but I don't have any "cold weather" gear for the water ................ yet :fishing:

Check and see how long the wind will stay at 10 mph. If it's blowin' 10 all night, it will be pretty choppy. A surf launch from Chix's may result in some gear donated to Davy Jones. Wet suit should be fine, I wear neoprene waders all winter with no complaints. If it's fairly calm, I may join you guys. Post a time and spot to meet if I can.

Just checked the winds, Sunday morning is forecasted to be 15 knts all morning. Too stiff for me, but Sunday night may lay down, better fishing at night anyway.

By Bay Bridge, I was referring to the one on Rt. 50 near Annapolis/Kent Island. Launching from Sandy Point State Park. Sorry for the confusion.

Mickey - I assume you are still talking about fishing Sunday correct? Sat looks to be a wash at this point.

And which livewell you thinking of building? I was considering dabbling with one myself.

Gonna pull the plug on this one. Had to make a choice between the beach or the yak to allow enough time to rig up the appropriate stuff.

Look for me on the beach at SPSP. Probably going to have my father-in-law and brother-in-law with me. Will likely be in a blue jeans and a dark blue wind breaker. 6'5" about 285lbs.

Mickey G - sorry to hear you were under the weather. Glad to hear you are feeling better though.

Was out on the beach at SPSP on Sunday. Weather was great and the bay "looked" flat. I guess it could be different once out there. Didn't see many boat and no kayaks from where I was. On the beach side of things, NOTHING was biting at all.

Maybe next Sunday? I got a house pass I believe and I don't want to burn it sitting on the sand out of casting distance from some of the bigguns.
