    I've been into kayaking for quite a while now, and have a barn full of them.

    I've recently been doing some fishing on our local river/creek that runs behind the house, and have been doing pretty well with the catfish, on nightcrawlers and perch.

    A couple weeks ago, I caught a pretty good sized yellow cat on a limb-line..as well.

    I'm guessing he weighed about 50 lbs..

    being that I was still a full hour's paddle from my takeout, there was absolutely no way to bring this guy home, and no way to take a photo with me in it, because I was alone.

    Anyway, just thought I'd share..

    Yak fishing is a blast. Looks like you have a nice stretch of river to run on. Just a tip. I keep my catch in a bag not a stringer when in my kayak. I use a net laundry bag inside of a canvas bag. you put the cats in and just dip them in the water every now and then and keep them onboard when you are paddling. The other thing is that I make sure to have everything I need to clean them on the spot incase I don't want to haul them out. They take up lots less room once you clean them.

    Would like to hear more about your experances.

    We never use stringers down here. Either an insulated fish bag with ice for the biggies or in a cooler. Dropping a stringer over the side is a good way to see Gators or Sharks up close and personal.

    That White Bank Park there looks like a perfect place to float a yak, too!

    What in the world are you waiting for? :wink:
