Haven't seen many kayak posts. Fished Friday and Sunday around OC. Friday late afternoon produced 15-18 shorts (18-24") on chartruese speckled curly tail. Water is still uglier than ever. Bites were subtle and took some enticing. Sunday had bigger fish but fewer of them. Fish between 18-29" with multiple 23-26" fish. Why are the the hits not more aggressive? Water temp? Water clarity? I believe they are some bigger fish yet to appear.

Jim,
We are still around, have been fishing other spots up north and sodbank fishing. May try again later this week in the north OC area. If I go out I'll try to send you an email or posting. Keith the bagman
P.S. Next couple of days look like S--t. Another blow coming through and maybe some rain. Like I said, after the next blow. Keep an eye on the temps.

Would love to join anyone in the LBI area in the spring/summer to learn how to yak fish. I bought mine in mid-late summer but didn't get the chance to really try it out with fishing.

You yakkers sure are dedicated (nutz). Please be careful out there! That water is real cold.

The sharp drop in water temp shocks the fish turns off the bite. I do notice when the water gets to 45 and below they bite very subtle I guess the cold water makes the fish sluggish.

Back bay water temp for Great bay last saturday was 38-40 at dead low tide. Kayaker's please be careful. Stay warm & catch em up.
