Any watercraft that is on the water

30 mins before sunset and 30 mins after sunrise is required to have navigation lights. All else aside, you sure don't want some 40 footer running you over because you can't be seen....Tightlines

kq6 I take it you got a kayak by your post. I got one to. Wild river outfitters have a couple of employee's that fish from their yak's and they can help you with the lights (va yakfisherman). Unless I missed something at the Demo last week, I only saw a single flashing white light mounted behind the cockpit on the demo fishing kayaks.
Did you end up with a sit in or a sit on top.

Hey Robert,

I'm thinking about getting a yak also. Do you fish cheasapeake beach from your yak often? I'm thinking about going out with BayPadders this summer... torn between Malibu Extreme, Pro Explorer, and OK Prowler...

kq6 / seasalt

kq6 we did have that talk on the pier. I went with the Pungo 140. We will need to get together sometime.

Seasalt I just got my kayak last week and only taking it out twice. Only once w/ rod and that was more for checking my placement of rod holders. You may want to read the reviews on the different kayaks at paddling.net under product / review.
As far as Chicks beach / CBBT, I plan to be there in the fall. until then I will be staying in Rudie inlet (Owl creek) or Lynnhaven inlet although I may take a trip to Kiptopeke in a week or two if the wind is light.
