Pretty good trip with a surprise shark hook up first thing in the morning. Quick rant about some local drama and then off to the fishing. 3:45 starts the actual fishing so if you aren’t from around here avoid the intro. But in reality things will be changing here for kayakers shortly. I rounded out the trip with my 3 fish limit of black sea bass and two nice flounder to 25″ (5lbs or so).
Intro 00:00 – 01:42
Kayakers; Fish and Shut the F* Up on the Internet 01:43 – 03:42
Dusky Shark – 03:46-08:00
24.5″ Flounder – 08:11 – 10:05
Knucklehead Sea Bass – 10:08-12:13
A mix of keeper sea bass and a 20″ fluke to the end.
I worked two lures this morning. First I hooked the dusky, the big flounder, and the biggest sea bass on an EliasVFishing White Whiptail Shad with a 1 oz. Heads and Lures co. Jighead. These lures are available on https://www.EliasVFishing.com in packs of four or Amazon Prime in packs of 8 here: https://www.amazon.com/Extreme-Whiptail-Shad-Fishing-White/dp/B01CWP95F6/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1468076736&sr=8-1&keywords=whiptail+shad
The other effective lure was a 1oz. Spro Bucktail tipped with a 4″ Berkley Gulp! Swimming Mullet. Both caught fish well today. I harvested two flounder and my legal limit of flounder.
I fished with a KastKing Sharky II 2000 with 20lb KastKing Braided line on a KastKing Phantom Kayak Rod. The other set up is a KastKing Triton 2000 with 15lb KastKing Braided line with an old Cabelas Fish Eagle II rod rated 1/2 oz to 1 & 1/2 oz. The kayak is a Hobie 2011 Outback and my fishfinder is a Lowrance Mark 4
