Well, after all the questions of what to buy and how to rigg, I bought my used Drifter and Getto Rack for my car and went to the water Sat. for my first real day of fishing. I went to an area off of Southern Blvd in WPB. There is a little beach right by Trump's Home to put in. I thought I would check out the islands around this area and try my luck. I HAVE ALOT TO LEARN!! My first cast landed in the trees, I had to paddle up to the tree, get out and save my lure. Thank god I have a SOP (as long as the bottom is soft) The island didn't give me much so I moved over to some other mangroves in a shallow spot. (Big TIP for newbies, learn the tidal flows of where you intend to go, I paddled against the current all day!! The flats I paddled to had mullet almost jumping into my yak, but I couldn't get any to bite. So I tried a couple different places an old boat dock, under the bridge, in a small channel. NOTHING!! I did manage to lose two lures and my hook remover. Note: if it don't float, LOCK IT DOWN!! of course the weather cleared when I decided to go home (LOL). So no fish for me, BUT!! I got to see first hand some of God's best work. I really see why yakkers love this sport. The Osprey at work is an awsome sight to see ( He did catch fish, maybe I could ask him for a few pointers) I have found something I will enjoy for years to come, I'll get my fish, every dog has his day. BTW Jimbo, My next big purchase is a paddle for sure!!!
