Well, after my first Connecticut River W500 kayak Striper trip, you know I had to get back out there 🙂
I Hit the river at 9:00am. First drift, at 9:39am, the first Schoolie was in the boat. The Bite wasn’t as good as my first trip, but with 2 stripers a 32″ and one at 32 1/2″ I’m one Happy Friggen Yaker 🙂
The best part of my day was having a striper hit the top water lure, sending in the air, then coming back and hitting it again with a tail slap, when I realized, it was 3 Stripers fighting over it.
When Finally it Happened, I Had a Double on, and it was 2 Good size Keepers, they were rolling and fighting when one popped off.
But the one I got in the boat was the 32 1/2″ fatty. I ended up with 10 Stripers, ranging from 24″ to the 32 1/2″.
I headed for the ramp at 12:30, I was pooped out, didn’t think I could reel in another fish
Plus, I was soooooooooo tired from standing and fishing all morning.
That W500 is a work out machine, just as much as she is a FISHING MACHINE!!!!!!!
Notice, my GoPro Hero2 mounted and ready to record – Enjoy the porn
