Have also done both, mostly from a boat. Caught the biggest, and most from a boat. Wish I still had one. Just got expensive, time consuming, traffic has gotten really bad, did I mention expensive? Once you're "on" the boat, it's a lot easier to fish. Bank fishing to me, means more interaction with other fishermen, not always a good thing, but for the most part, yes.
Even though I would like to have a boat again, I won't due to the above reasons. To give me more options, and expand my range, hopefully in the near future will look more into getting a kayak.
i was around th COLEMAN BRIDGE one day fishing and this dude had a peddelling kayak scared me to see that but he looked comfortable dont think he caught any tourist playing with a new toy i wouldnt have put that thing in a bathtub
I want a kayak. I have seen a bunch of people on the bay with them, and it looks like both great excersise and fun.
I have certainly used crazier methods to fish! In a secret bass hole back home, my buddy and I brought inflatable "boats" for kids that we got at wallmart for 19.00 bucks each. Man we caught so many damn bass in those lil boats, and it was a blast when a big one would actually TOW you around. We used wire fish baskets hanging off the side with rope to keep some blue gills and a couple bass for supper, but it was great fun.
preciate th info on this topic everyone got an opion ive never had a kayak to really sayt to much but i still dont see wheres id i go out $ buy one but id still try one in shallow water just in case my balance is a lil off
Where would I have the better chance to catch pompano? BBNWR, sandbridge, dam neck. If there is another place let me know. I just didnt figure va beach ocean a place they would be so I did not list it. I usally travel to NC for them but would like to target them locally. Thanks for any input.
I would fish after hurricanes passed when I lived in South Carolina, and usually it was feast or famine. But more often then not, I would have pretty good luck. Is it the same for coastal Virginia? Looking to get out on the yak for a few hours later in the week.
