March 31, 2016. A few of our club members have asked to try paddling my Wavewalk kayak, so I’ve arranged to meet them at the Lake Hernando boat ramp next Monday, April 4 at 1 p.m. Anyone interested is welcome to meet us there.
February 24, 2016 Fishing Report. After a pretty slow winter fishing season, things should start picking up once we get into late February and March. The water will be warming up, and the bite should improve significantly. Spring and fall are the best fishing times of the year here. Don’t forget the Lions Club Kayak Fishing Tournament on April 9.
Tip of the Week. If you’ve been frustrated by frequently having to re-tie lures to the end of your line, you might want to try the No Knot Fas-Snap product. They’re no bigger than the split rings that often come attached to your favorite lures, and make changing lures a breeze. I use them all the time and haven’t lost a lure with them yet. Just make sure to get the Xtra Large size.
February 12, 2016. The Inglis – Yankeetown Lions Club will host its annual kayak fishing tournament on April 9, 2016. Further info. can be obtained at naturecoastchallenge.com.
For the first time, I caught big reds on back to back casts. I was letting the smaller one (a 27 incher) bleed out between the front hulls (a gift for a neighbor in payment for a Xmas tray of scones), when I hooked the second one. The second one matched my biggest in 10 years of fishing here. I got nothing the rest of the day, but I’m not complaining.
