Kayak fishing the Lone Star State...


#2292293
Is it just me or has this been a slow season BTB? Seems like last couple summers have been more consistent. This July was my first skunk - not even the sharks would bite! September 2018 had kings out the wazoo .... haven’t seen many fishing reports so far this year. Except for a few Aussie topwater chainsaws.... Why has it been so quiet this year? Last couple times at Billings bait stand, docks were loaded with guides and kings, some really big 60”+, but they came from further offshore. I keep hearing about cooler water closer to shore, But I wasn’t checking temperatures last year to compare. What is going on?

Prof. Salt also obeys all the game laws and limits, and he's also been keeping small fish this year. :D

I don't know what's going on, but the fishing has definitely been slow for most of the season. A few days were really busy, but most of the time I had to work more than usual for every fish. I caught less than half the number of kings this year as in previous years, and several times I noticed cool water offshore. Still, the cooler water temps didn't slow down the fishing other years.

Have to wonder does he stretch and starch before measuring?
Thanks, Provf. Salt for your instruction and encouragement.
