Default Re: Memorial Weekend Plans?

I went up to my new lake house, on a lake I'd never fished before. Got up pretty early today (Monday, around 7), using a little gold-and-black Rapala original, I think the length was 3in. 5th cast I hook into a nice 15 inch Rainbow Trout. Which is awesome cause in my lake, its deep and cold enough to catch Rainbows year-round... Something I'm wicked psyched about. Then, in the kayak around 9:30, I was trolling behind me a Rapala X-Rap suspending... was probably down around 20-30 feet. Rod doubled over. Went to reel it up, felt just like heavy weight. So, started reeling, I felt some tugging. A nice fish, I was pumped. Finally bring it to the surface. By now its fighting real hard. Bring it to the side... biggest freaking pickerel I've ever caught. I'd say around 30 inches. I could've literally fit my fist inside of its mouth. And have room left over.

I bring him close, lift him out a little, pliers ready, makes one flop. Line snaps. Down go the pickerel and my 10 dollar lure.

I just re-rigged that pole with 12 pound test.
He'll get his day.

Hey Baitrunner,

I'm thinking of taking up kayak fishing. Who do you recommend for rental places down Westport way?

WPT70,

There's a great little kayak shop that rents out yaks on Old County Road at the head of the Westport River. Here's their website. Their you'll find their rental rates under the "SHOP" link at the top of the home page.
