Went out of Morningside Park this morning with a small group from 8AM until thunder (about 11). Despite it being high tide, the trout were biting pretty well on Gulp shrimp. Krash got an 18 inch one and I got a 15 and a 19 incher, plus several smaller ones. No pics- got lazy.

RDS, thanks for the invite. I also caught a few smaller Trout and of course a few cudas.  :D

Was tossing the standard top-water but no takers, got the cudas and trout on various color and style soft plastics on a jughead.. and a cuda on the silver mirodyne.

Got very wet reloading the yak to the car-roof in the pouring rain, and my webb'd straps wick water into the car.  :(

KRASH -TO STOP WICKING

Roll your straps around the bars and secure with a clove hitch -it holds well, and if you're judicious with the length, it won't flap at speed.  Otherwise, loosen the clove & tuck the leftover in.

We noticed the wicking into the car phenomenon a few years back when we just tucked the straps through the open back windows and then put the windows up -and then wondered where the heck the water was coming from after we drove back in tghe rain.  When we determined it was the wicking, we now wrap whenever there's a threat of rain.  If the forecast is sunny & bright, we'll do it the old way.  

While wrapping and tying off is a good way to go, it's still s lot easier to "window tuck" as you tote the boat to & from wherever you go to

Frank, good idea but I'm using the ghetto yak rak, my soft surf-board racks, the straps run through the car, doors open, tighten them down, then close the doors. Works great on dry days.

I'm going to try to soak the straps in rope, dip-it whip-it or electrical liquid lecttrical tape.. been saying that for years but never seem to get to it, gotta take a day off from fishing.

fishhead, wish I could find a decent setup like yours that would stay on top of the civic and not cost an arm & leg, I'm on a tight budget with 2 kids in college.

A guy at the launch site had a yota-pirus 4dr with a Yakima setup similar to yours, with the J holders. When he lifted his yak and leaned it on the bar, the bar bent, then 1 of the J hooks flopped over, he appeared to need more help, so with RDS on 1 end, the owner in the middle, and myself on the other, the yak felt very heavy, we quickly realized his yak was half full of water... a new Tempo, far to much water to have leaked in through the hatch.. both RDS and my S-Pro's with hatches were bone dry inside.

I have an '01 Civic 2dr coupe, and cannot find a decent set of racks, for less than the cost of a yak. Tule site says no rack to fit your vehicle.

I love the yakima rax ... I've had them for about 2 1/2 years now and  they're great. I originally bought them for my foldy boat.

krash .. have you looked at the yakima site? ... I'll bet they have some to fit you ... I really forget what I paid for the rax ...

Never get out of the boat.
