If you've used a tube or belly boat it should be much of an adjustment. I love fishing that whole area in Aransas Pass: B&R, Light House Lakes, South Bay, etc. I'm lucky that it's only about a 40 minute drive from my house. I just can't wait for this wind to lay down and the water to clear up a bit. =)

    What 'yak are you using down there? I've got a decent oppt'y pick up a well-maintained Prism that I think might be pretty perfect and quite a deal. Used to sell them and always liked it as a low, lean, fast, and well designed boat.

    I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.

    Hey BC, I'm using a 14 ft Liquid Logic Manta 14. It's still my favorite boat. I does, however, have a few things I don't like. Trust me...it's not a stand up caster. I mean, sure, you can stand up and cast, however, that's going to happen if you DON'T move much and don't look around MUCH. I like getting up so I can scan the water and it's taken me a bit or trial and error.....and wet short to finally get it down. Now, my previous boat was an older Wilderness Ride. That thing was GREAT. I THINK I spent more time standing up and poling in it than paddling. The down side to that particular boat was that it paddled like a tank and didn't take bow waves very well....you sort of just pushed straight through any chop you encountered. A great stable casting platform, but you sacrifice speed a bit.
    There are SO many good fishing yaks out there at the moment is hard to nail down just one "great yak". I like to tell people that yaks are a lot like shoes: you go through a few before you find one that fits. If you a serious about getting a great fishing kayak let me know. I used to work at a kayak shop and I'm a certified instructor....more importantly though: I FISH OUTTA LITTLE PLASTIC BOATS!. LOL...let me know if you're going to be headed down to my part of the woods, maybe we can throw some flies at some suicidal reds! Later amigo...
