I am hooked.. Spent a couple hr's on Tully river and Long Pond not far off rte 2 today with the hubby.. caught a bunch of small lmb's and one pickerel.. didn't take long for me to get used to the kayak never been on one before went about 2 miles up river to a pond fished the pond the headed back as it was getting crowded with kayak's.. no one else fishing.. was heading back decided to hit another spot we tried on the way up river.. threw out the zoom toad and BAM.. hit buy what felt like a whale.. again 1st time in a kayak.. landed a 5lb4oz LMB.. scared me cause it's my PB.. but I was glad we didnt leave to soon.. anyhow.. I'm not hooked on Kayak fishing... I was in a borrowed Kayak stopped at sports authority on the way home and bought one..
I was surprised I didn't get dragged by the big fish.. I was using my new Smoke reel it's the saltwater version cause it holds more line and has a slightly better drag, so I'm thinking it was that that helped me.. here's a distant pic of my new kayak can't really see it behind my hubbys his was 800 mine was only 200 onsale 12' has 2 rod holders and 1 storage bin and a back support seat (which is key)
The ranking score is used to determine how "popular" a trip or location is. It is calculated based off of a weighted average of the number of reviews and the user ratings. For example, a trip with 2 reviews and an average rating of 5 will have a lower "ranking score" than one with 10 reviews and an average rating of 4. This is because even though the first trip has a better average rating, it has not been reviewed as much as the second trip, so it is not as "popular". In the future we may modify the ranking score to take in additional factors, such as the number of views, comments, and photos.
