nothing cos it wasnt on a yak!
Pah! minor detail :whistle:
Don't want to worry you guys but if anyone can loan me a 50/80lb boat rod and a big game reel in the very near future (next week) I would appreciate it :whistle: I'll show that Robson Green fella what Extreme kayak fishing is :cheesy: .
I can get you a heavy rod and reel Ken this week but they would have to be bought specially, nothing here to loan :sad:
Thanks for the offer Sam but I cannot justify buying them just at the mo mate, Spud is dragging me north in the hunt for 100lb + skate anchoring in 300ft of water :scare: . And if that isn't enough we have to take camping kit with us on the yak . . .
Sounds great fun Ken, anchoring in 300ft of water should be interesting :scare:
Ye might have problems, my anchor line is only 200 ft :laugh: Its trying to unsucker one of them from the bottom and then lifting it in tide that worries me. .
It'll be reet Ken, you've got vast experince of 'extreme kayak fishing' so it'll be no problem for you
a big numb 50lb fenwicks boat rod with rollers, in my Garage that has never been used, just pick it up next time your passing. At what stage does the kayak start going down quicker than the skate is coming up ? :laugh:
well time will tell if does not post for a wile he will be on the bottom with the skate :laugh:
So anyway, back to thread, (sorry Glenn :embarrass: :embarrass: ) only just over a couple of weeks to start of the league, would anyone like to share their league strategies with us :cheesy: , whos targetting what first? Are you going all out to bag a quick 20 points or going for the bread and butter points first - or even somewhere in between. Been some great advice on the forum this last week in targetting species we don't usually bother with, Would love to know your game plan :whistle:
I'm stuffed for two weeks as my mentor is the other side of the planet :crazy: :cheesy:, you just know I cannot catch a slug without his imput :embarrass:
Glenn are the rules and species finalised yet, quantities etc ?
I think I'm about there with the rules. I think I will opt for best 3 fish of each species apart from those where only 1 is allowed. I am keen to avoid the one thing a lot of people were concerned about and that is the league taking over their fishing and enjoyment of the sport. So 6 months to catch 3 fish of each type shouldnt stress anyone too much. I was hoping for a bit more input from the kayakers but I assume their quietness means :
A: They are all completely happy with things as they.
B: They've all gone into stealth mode and are planning their strategies.
C: Noone is fishing the league as it sounds a waste of time.
My strategy is to enjoy myself and go with the flow. Fish when I can nd just hope the weather is better than last years.
My plan is to have the most points by the end of the league :cheesy: there you go Ken, don't say I never you tell you anything :secret:
I honestly haven't even thought about how I'll fish this league, most of it is down to luck anyway so I just hope I'm in the right place at the right time. Bit like 2008 :cheesy: :whistle:
maybes i should have a dabble with this...i gotta good feelin in my pants for this yr LMAO it cant be half as bad as last yr was...surely??
Glenn it will be a success mate, 'C' is not an option, you've put a lot of thought and effort into it, it would be hard for us to critisize as you've done most of the groundwork and there are some great prizes up for grabs.
It will be a fun and diverse season for anyone who takes on the challenge, pushing our own boundaries and opening up all kind of techniques and species we haven't yet given much thought too. The league to me will only enhance our fishing and enjoyment of the sport, in my mind it'll be running in the background and will push me to try different techniques and hopefully latch into a few of new species too.
Oh you just play it close to your chest then mister :cheesy: , theres got to be a great strategy in there somewhere . . . get stright in there with a bit of intense fishing after a little bit of research and knock out a quick 20 points - just to intimidate the opposition of course, then nibble away at the 'sure thing' species to get ahead - my problem will be staying power - keeping it going ( just ask the wife :embarrass: ), then as the season unfolds target the species as they become available, unfortunately that is as far as i've got :cheesy:
Anyone for a midnight start on opening night :cheesy: ? ?
one of the best times to bag up thru the summer there ken specially into the early hours
never really made dawn last year mate but some of my best fish were certainly at dusk, coming ashore in the pitch dark, best cod, first bass, best ling :happy:
I intend to photograph and weigh my catch with a copy of the daily or sunday sport as evidence in the background. at least if the fishing is crap I will have something to do. :whistle:
choose a different paper pengy, that one won`t be any good once you`ve got it all wet and sticky :tease: :sick: :vomit:
