It may just be a personal goal of mine, but as long as I am kayak fishing I like to aim for consistency. Somewhere in the middle between fishing for food and fishing for sport, I like to make sure that I get one good scrap and something to eat on every trip I go on. As the years have gone on, I have slowly been moving towards a higher rate of success.
But fishing can often be chasing carrots on treadmills. Simply put, the more you know, the more you realize there is to know. So back to my goals. Usually comes in the form of jacks for battle, and bottom fish for food. It gets the job done and my needs are met, but I am far from delighted.
The beauty of pelagic fish, is that you get a 2-for-1. That fresh fish on the table while still getting a fair dose of that screaming reel. The simplest answer is just always catch pelagic fish. The problem is I don’t know how. December-March has always been my nemesis on the water. Could just be the areas that I fish. Maybe I need to change techniques. Whatever the case those questions will have to shelved till next season.
Now that winter is over, things are starting to pick up. Not much for me yet, but between the bunch of yakers on Kaua’i it definitely looks promising. Over the last month I managed to pick up a tuna, get some snappers, lose a sailfish, and land an ono on some bullbuster wire. So cheers to spring and maybe I’ll go snowboarding instead of fishing next year.
