Hello,
I've finally decided to join NCKA. I've only been kayak fishing for a short time but I'm having a blast with it so far. Most of my trips have been with MontanaN8V. I'll mostly be soaking up knowledge from everyone in the beginning. Hopefully I'll be able to return the favor some day.  :smt006

Here are some pics from this years trips.

Thanks for the welcome everybody. Yes..the madness has set in and I have turned to the dark side. Of course to be fair I think that happened some time ago. The yak just allows me to fish places and times of year I coudn't with my boat. I love the portability, cost, versatility, etc.. Next month I'll be sturgeon fishing in a derby at Mcnears. I'll let you guys know how we do.

Probably about 6 months off and on. I don't really remember. MontanaN8V told me to check it out sometime while we were fishing for halibut in the bay this last year. I looked around a few times but didn't really think about it much again until recently. It was about time.
