Kayak fishing the Lone Star State...

By the time I got to the ramp, boat traffic was already heavy so I opted to leave the yak on the SUV and headed to the surf. It took me a while to figure out what they what they wanted, but by 7:45a I had a cooler with four specks to 22" and threw back four more keepers thinking there would be another big one. If I'd known the last caught keeper was going to be the last caught keeper, I could have left with my limit.

It was the kind of surf where from the car looked decent, and then when you get about thigh deep you start to regret the decision but figure you're already wet so you may as well give it a shot. Then in waist deep water they were crashing over my head every 20th wave. And then there would be a lull of sorts for a couple of minutes with decent sized but manageable waves. And then one would knock me off of my feet and make me want to call it a morning. But I'd make that "last cat" and hook up and decide it wasn't so bad. Repeated that about 20 times. Home by 9:20a.

Thanks. I sometimes wonder whether I should post a surf report on a kayak fishing website but if people on here are like me, any fishing report is better than no report. Plus, it started off as a kayak trip, just didn't end up as one.

You'll never hear criticism from me for posting about "anything" fishing, kayak site or not. Keep 'em coming! I'm headed down for some surf fishing in a few weeks myself so I appreciate the report. Of course we'll be taking the kayaks but mainly because my sons want to run baits out with them.
