Had my hands full, fishing from a simple on top Ocaen kayak Frenzy. Forgot my pliers and paid for it with two stuck trebles in my hand. Switched from jumpin minnow over to single hook nlbn to save myself from getting stuck again. Couldn’t even get a boga measurement as I didn’t have my glasses. Fish size was estimated based on past experience. The larger fish took me for heck of Nantucket sleigh rides. Had to revive the Stripers. The bluefish - it was all I could do to get back my lure.
New to fishing from a yak but better than from shore as the fish were on the move, pushing bait. No rod holders. Just me and the fish. Not the best of situations as I wasn’t expecting anything over 20 #s.
It’s okay to be skeptical. I would be too, if I didn’t know better. Thought twice about posting, but thought it was worth sharing.
