  1. Anyone know if the snappers are in the Navesink? Too early? I like to take my kids. Thanks.
  2. Yeah, 11-4 and i just took pictures. Of course I fished. Most excitement was accidentally tangling a bird. Safely released.
  3. Moco, 11-4. Nada. Saw some shorts caught. The fleet was tight to the beach.
  4. Cool. Always thought a miniaturized motor would be a good idea for kayaks. Even just as an assist to paddling. It's just still quite expensive.
  5. Moco out front 4-7 pm. Threw sp minnows, metal, popper. Nothing. Small bait around, but not a lot.
  6. Anyone know if snappers (small bluefish) are in the river yet? I'm thinking of taking my kid out on the yak Sunday. Thanks.
  7. Raritan Bay on the yak this morning, got one meager bluefish. Marked no other fish.
  8. Guys who went out early today have any luck? I'm hitting RB this afternoon in the yak.
  9. If you're looking for a light sit in, you might consider the Ocean Kayak Caper. I have one, it doesn't feel far off its listed 45 lbs. Caper Length: 11 ft Width: 31 in Weight: 45 lb Capacity: 300 lb
  10. Do you leash you tackle boxes? I don't have a Hobie. No hatch.
  11. Moco out front, 2 microbass in 2 hours.
  12. Moco back bay/river on the kayak yesterday afternoon. Not fun with strong wind and current. Nothing caught or marked. Lots of flotsam after the recent t-storms.
  13. I have been using a cheap soft tackle bag or my plug bag, tethered to my yak with a carabiner. It fits between my legs but gets very wet. Not the best solution. What do you all use?
  14. Here's the kayak story from yesterday: Coast Guard Searched Raritan Bay After Overturned Kayak Report Wednesday Night By Carly Baldwin (Patch Staff) - April 20, 2017 9:49 am ET KEANSBURG, NJ - If you noticed a State Police helicopter and the U.S. Coast Guard off Keansburg fishing pier Wednesday night, they were combing the waters of Raritan Bay after a report of an adrift kayak was called in. Someone reported seeing an overturned kayak adrift in the bay off the Keansburg fishing pier at around 8 p.m. Wednesday, Petty Officer Steve Strohmaier of the U.S. Coast Guard Public Affairs told Patch. The Coast Guard responded from their station at Sandy Hook and were joined by a State Police helicopter as they searched the area for someone in the water. The Union Beach and Keyport fire departments also helped with the search. The search lasted for over an hour, until about 9:30 p.m. However, police were eventually able to confirm with the kayak's owner that the boat was adrift and that nobody was in the water. The search was called off. However, water rescues in Raritan Bay are not uncommon, especially as the weather warms up. Just over a week ago, a man floating in the frigid waters of Sandy Hook Bay had to be picked up by a passing motorboat after his kayak flipped near Naval Weapons Station Earle. That rescue happened on Sunday, April 9. Patch reported on that story here: Kayaker Rescued in Sandy Hook Bay Sunday The Coast Guard looked for him, as did the Middletown volunteer fire department. The man was in 50-degree ocean water, but declined medical care after he was brought to ashore to Belford marina. https://patch.com/new-jersey/middletown-nj/coast-guard-searched-raritan-bay-after-overturned-kayak-report-wednesday
