  1. I have seen more herring dumping out of estuaries/rivers this year than I have in any of the past 3 or 4 years. Haven't seen bunker yet, but hopefully that changes soon. Going to start checking out a place I found squid last year in the next week or two and will report back.
  2. Wow, this is great, seems perfect. PM coming.
  3. WTB a 7-foot rod (+/- a few inches is ok) MH rod for the kayak. Ideally, would be something rated in the range 1-4oz for jigging or fishing with live bait, which would be paired with a VR150. The very old rod I'm using has too long of a butt making it unnecessarily heavy and annoying to deal with. Willing to meet pretty much anywhere the coast of MA for pickup. Thanks!
  4. Night trips are fun
  5. Nicer fish showing up, got this one on a 1oz gags jig while bass were demolishing herring all around me
  6. Stayed local today and got a bunch ranging from 22-27, beautiful foggy morning. Big fish on the way soon hopefully.
  7. Trolling the tube @tcal4404?
  8. I read that a RI kayaker stumbled into a school of them in April near togging grounds. I know North shore guys got them pretty good last year from shore, and some sat around Boston harbor in late august around the bunker schools. If the bunker make a good showing again this year I see no reason why we wouldn't get a good showing of blues. I really want to catch them from the kayak
  9. Started playing around with a flagpole camera mount. Fortunately, it seems I have a bit more time than you do to get the kinks worked out before bigger fish show up. The only issue is reaching it for battery replacement (only get 50min of recording time with this bootleg camera I'm using), need to figure out how to rig a better battery or connect it to the one powering my ff/gps.
  10. Enjoyed looking at everyone’s photos last year and contributing some of my own once I got into the kayak game, figured I’d restart the thread this year Skunked my first voyage of the year when I visited NJ a few weeks ago, back in MA now and made up for the skunk yesterday
  11. This is my setup from last year. I use arts and craft marker boxes to hold different colors/styles of plugs and save 1 for holding knife, leaders, hooks. I put jigs/hogys in a pouch that I kept in the milk crate or inside the kayak. This year I upgraded to a 15' version of the kayak instead of this 13'. The previous owner modded a Hobie latch with a bucket which'll either be for eels or jigs depending on the trip. Plan to use the same marker box storage for plugs and terminal gear. Forces me to be selective about what I bring and not overpack.
  12. Splashed the yak in a harbor north of Boston Saturday, lots of birds, bait, and fish to 28" +/- 1hr from high tide. Super fun on light tackle
  13. @Wildcard how big are those fluke? been meaning to take the yak out and try find them, haven't gotten around to it yet
  14. light tackle schoolies are always a blast IMG_5142.mov
  15. Returned yak less politics
