Yeah, not easy without a buddy to tag team the kayaks. I did strategize a plan once to take a long rope with me, tie it to the front carry strap of the kayak, run it up to the top of the levee, feed it under the guardrail cable, tie that off to the trailer hitch and pull that thing up the hill with the truck..... :D

Moses hole is usually good this time of year. You can get specks, flounder and some reds. Lures work fine, but you need heavier jigheads to get the bait to stay near the bottom. I have had best results with Morning Glory and Red Shad colors (dark seems to be best at those depths) and have used mostly 1/4 oz jigheads, though in higher winds, I have used a 3/8 oz jighead to help keep the slack out of my line.

well i have a feelfree moken 14... a friend of mine that worked with me at GE moved to seattle and sold it to me for a price i couldnt refuse... kayak with everything i would need including fish finder and life jacket for $500... i think that yak alone is $900 at AKC when i bought it from him the price for it at AKC was 1100, its my first kayak so it does me good until i can move up to a hobie or something like that
