New user and first post here. Just looking for some advise and helpful tips from some veterans. I am a new inshore kayak angler that just recently converted over from fresh water. I have fished the main and back bay of the Raritan a handful of times and hooked up on some blues. However, every time I go out I get crushed by waves, chop etc. I do plan my trips to the best of my ability, but coming from freshwater lakes and reservoirs I have never had to deal with tide, swell and waves. Anyone have any helpful advise or literature in regard to ideal kayak fishing conditions such as tide, waves, swell and wind? I seem to be having trouble taking the raw data and piecing together wether or not it is a good day to go out.
Note, I do have a bow mount trolling motor on my kayak.
Thanks in advance!
