  1. Use duct seal and mount it in the hull. I had it mounted in the water on my old yak and in the hull in my Hobie now. Performance has not changed and temp is accurate enough still.
  2. x2 For Garmin Striker 4. Cheap, easy to use, and awesome image. I was confident in it from day 1.
  3. Cayuga is awesome. I only fished it for about 4 hours this past fall, but the amount of bait and huge trout is amazing. Find the bait on the drop off and troll over and under it.
  4. Thanks for the info guys. Will be getting out in the yak before the game Sunday if any wants to join.
  5. I'm thinking about hitting RV Sunday. Anyone know the ice situation?
  6. Yea I did the same last time. The rain took care of the sand and crab bits...
  7. I had my Garmin Striker mounted through the scupper on my old yak. Now use Ductseal in the hobie. Clarity is the same, temp reading is fine for my needs as well. Works awesome, and it's easy/ cheap.
  8. Was out Sunday on a friend's boat. Bunker and bass were thick in spots on the SI side. Landed 1 31 on Mojo dropped 2 others. Went outside but did not see too much life, fish were around but we did not get any more on the troll. Went back in and tried togging a bit on the piles, had some bites and saw some keepers taken. The fishing seemed better than our level of effort.
  9. Had to go to work, but weather is looking great. Good luck and report back so I can live vicariously through you.
  10. If the weather holds, I'm in.
  11. same lol
  12. The VHF is key. Ultimately the best thing you can do is go with a buddy, or a group.
  13. I've only been kayak fishing for 3 years and just started going into the salt. I always wear my PFD, even in the summer. Its very comfortable and I use the pockets. I bought a floating handheld marine vhf. For 65 bucks I can hear whats going on and if **** hits the fan I hope one of the gazillion boats will give me a hand or there's always the coast guard. I picked up an 18" hand pump. Not sure if this will be regular gear, but it can't hurt to have down in the center hatch. I haven't added pool noodles in yet, but will eventually. For dry gear I have breathable chest waders and a kokatat tempest jacket/ belt. IF I die with all of these precautions then it's just my time. I don't go out in winds over 12 mph generally.
  14. Nice fish! Was the beach ramp open in SB?
  15. Wind finder made it seem like a good day to get out front, how was it? I woulda been out there but had some plans with the family. I'm eying next Friday.
