Have Fun Guys,,,,
Well we finally got a chance to launch our Ocean Ambush Kayak for the first time the other night and we couldn't of picked a better time to do it.
Just perfect conditions when we pulled up to the CISP Boat Ramp just after Midnight Memorial Day Morning...Myself,Ronny and Greg really havn't had the time to make our first Yak Attack with everything else going on the last month or so.
So little time and So Many Fish ,anyway me and Ron(BassCharger) had just a amazing night on the water.After running into Casting Disaster and hearing about a earlier bite around the area
we decided to head towards Corson's Inlet.As I mentioned the conditions could not of been more perfect for kayaking,No Wind,Half Moon rising over the Ocean,catching the very end of In-coming
water and the change over.We had a plan to use these tides to our favor to work a large section
of backbay water,in-coming to take us there and the out-going to bring us back drifting in front of the Hot Spots...Worked like a charm,it made for a easy paddle to and with our trolling motor
we were able to fastforward in stealth mode to any breaking fish that we heard...
After a few casts,right away I was hooked up with something Big,, Sleigh Ride Time..
As my G.Loomis doubled over ,drag screaming and kayak turning thoughts of a Big Bass were on my mind.But it was a strange fight
no head shaking,fish staying deep and pulling with power,after about a 5 minute battle I was able to bring the fish on top - Huge Shark !!!
Between 3-4'er at least,the problem fighting it was the fact that I had him snagged in the left fin on its side which gave him all the advantage.
Disappointed we didn't break in the Yak with a Striper,none the less the thrill was still there
during that battle..We worked our way thru schools of breaking Herring and fished around them for awhile..We took the midnight cruise thru the ICW which was such a great experience in itself, a lit up sky,flood tide and no wind you were able to see and hear everything back there.Shooting Stars even streaked thru the sky..
It seem to take forever for the tide to swing and start moving but once it did the action started.A mixed bag of everyting we found.From busting Bluefish and Bass to even Fluke hitting
Surface Swimming Lures.Ron pulled in a nice Fluke
about 18-19" on his Blk/Pur Bomber.
I wound up catching our first Bass,a shorty with a ALS Tag in it...
Here we are sitting in the middle of the ICW,It was like a lake out there that night..
This picture was taken by our friend Dan who joined us later and also did battle with some nice size Blues also up to 8lbs..
Great Night On The Water,Can't Wait To Do It Again...
