Me and my son took the kayaks out one after noon on the South side of Lake P. under the HWY 11 Bridge, (May 7th), we did OK, was slow and most fish were to small, however I did manage to catch a big Red, it was fun to fight him away from the bridge for about 20 min, my son did get a legal one too but not as big as Dads, LOL. I have heard that the bite is real good right now with specks, flounder.... Read More
I have a bad back (several back surgeries) and I am not very flexible at all so even getting down on or near the ground to get in and out of the kayak would be an issue for me but I think its something that's doable for me but i'm sure i'll end up wet and muddy doing it.
but then what? how is the kayak for comfort when you cant bend or twist at the waist very well and I will cramp up after.... Read More
My buddy and I have become addicted to finding reds and trout with flyrods from kayaks. We live in New Orleans and so far we've fished Myrtle Grove and Reggio hoping to find great fishing close to the launch. Thankfully we're young enough (28) to be able to paddle quite far but it still seems like we have to paddle at least a mile or so to get to fishing spots from the.... Read More

Im new to the forum, thinking about getting into kayak fishing. I am looking at a Perception Pescador 12, wondering if I could get any feedback on this kayak. I am also new to the New Orleans area, wondering if I could get pointed in the right direction to catch some fish? Thanks very much for any and all advice, or just for the look.
Im takin a trip to lake laurier saturday in the yak... Northeast winds from 7am to 1pm the change to eastnortheast... What wind would be best to fish, early NE or ENE, i know south winds are the best just never fished a north wind...
At a kayak demo day yesterday, a few folks took an unexpected swim. Many folks came out to try their hand at paddling, pedaling and stand up boards. Many had never been in any kind of kayak or canoe. The combination of newbies and strong winds made for a wet day for a few.
One was a Hobie PA 12 that got flipped and made for an easy bottom hull inspection. The guy was cold and wet, but like.... Read More
