I purchased a Wilderness Ride late last year and must admit I enjoyed my ride so much my thoughts were more on Kayaking than fishing. But with the birds singing outside my house and with spring saltwater fishing getting ready to turn on my thoughts have turned to fishing and I sure could use some advise. Those of you that know the RIDE know there is not a lot of room on the backside but I can fit my Milkcrate there kind of lopsided. Who are my questions:
- When looking for that shell reef what do I use to probe the bottom? My Paddle? what about something that collapses to fit in the Yak? PVC pipe (how long)? what works best for you guys and where do you store it while fishing?
- What about handling of live bait. Can I place in fish (yellow/black one they sell at Academy)bucket and paddle out to fishing spots with the bucket floating in water? Is this doable? I know there are buckets with pumps you can make or buy but like the milkcrate back there to put my lurebag and knife and small lunchbag in and don’t feel like I have room for it.
- Where do you store the fish? On stringer tied to yak? collapsible ice chest?
- Does that anchor rope get in the way when fighting those monster fish (hoping for monster fish. lol).
Sure would like to hear from you guys out there for advice on above & also any other suggestions you might have for a successful fishing outing.
Tight lines and happy fishing
