Always thought about paddling out on a longboard on those days when the stripers are just going crazy out there. I've been looking for a cheap kayak to buy and would definitly use it to target the striper. Fishnkid let me know if you try to kayak fish for striper. I just might have to join you.

not to expensive for me. I just go to the naval base and rent one(my dad is in the navy) . Its like 20 dollars a day. You need like waders or something for stripers cause the kayaks i like do get wet sometimes. Over the summer i would go out and troll this hole i found and also scout spots for surf fishing. Worked pretty good.

lol up heres it only i think 10 bucks a day. The one is rent isnt even a fishing kayak i just turn it into one. The Have holes in the back the arent designed to hold your rod that work. Then you get one of the inner tubes things and stick a cooler inside to keep fish.Kozlow down in floridia isnt the gulf stream like 2 miles off somewhere. That might be fun to try and get dolphins in it.

yea you should definitly consider it, I have some experience w/ kayak fishing.I recommend getting a two seater sit on top ocean kayak, I have tried the one person ones and they work, but there more tipsy and have less room for gear, I keep my pole and tackle where the other person would sit. the two person ones are more stable, you can move around and not worry about tipping. I have caught srtiper and blues to 20 lbs and lots of spanish macs and never had a problem getting dragged around, or landing the fish.In Fl. I would imagine you could have success w/ spanish macs and kings and other inshore species. If your into fishing its worth the investment.

haha kozlow. I use doubles to. This is what i do. Its sorta trolling. My brother sits in the front and padles. I am in the back with the rod trolling. We do a pass on an area where we think fish are and once we are done we go in and switch tackle if neccessary and give it another shot. Once over the summer i was paddling for my younger brother whos 6. On the way in we hooked a fish that almost pulled him over. He lost it though but im guessing a nice flounder or ray.

There's an interesting kayak written up in this month's Sport Fishing--it comes with molded-in rod holders and has a paddle attachment to power it.

Thanks Sand flea
I will have to check it out. :)
Are you all staying warm up there at the northern end of the board.I have a feeling things(fishing)down here are going to heat up shortly.I sure hope I am correct. :D

hmm put it this way kozlow. The freshwater lakes near my house are frozen. Dont have any breaks to try in the ocean for stripers. Basically i got like 4 months until i get another line in the water. Thats classified as torture to me. I still want to try though. I think im asking my parents to take me to va beach 2 times a day. :D

FISHNKID
WHAT ARE YOU DOING ON THIS BOARD :mad:
I THOUGHT YOU WERE ON YOUR WAY WITH THAT
KAYAK :p That would keep you busy for about that long. :p Then you could fish when you got here. :) Sounds like a plan.

hahaha kozlow. I think id rather stick with walking to floridia then kayaking there. I might not be able to fish over that long of ride. Trolling down the east coast in a kayak though sounds fun. :confused: Might be doable someday lol.

Hey Fishnkid,

Are those kayak's really "tippy" or about the same as a canoe? How do they handle in boat wakes? Had a canoe growing up and loved it. Noticed alot of people setting out in the area's protected waters so I'm a little curious.

Tight lines,

Jighead
