Kayak fishing in fresh, brackish, and salt water in Virginia, North Carolina, and beyond.
Sunday, February 24, 2013
It has been a crazy few months to say the least. I started to get the itch, and even though the weather was not what I was hoping for, I made it out to a local freshwater spot to chase some crappie and perch. I fought hard to catch what I did with a few surprises thrown in.
The goal: (1) 15" Crappie and (1) 12" Yellow Perch.
Not 12" +
There were about 15 more ranging from 8"-10 1/2". Not what I was looking for, but I cant really complain about the numbers given the conditions I was facing. I also lost a Slab Crappie at the boat, which was heartbreaking. When I look back at it, thats why they call it fishing and not catching.
I also caught a few of these...
And alos some of these...
In all, it was really good to finally get out on the water and relax.
