I'm new to fishing from a kayak, and have an "Ocean Kayak Trident Angler 13".

I'd like to kayak fish with others in saltwater or freshwater.

I'm living in Salisbury and can go and travel any time.

 

Please PM me.

Don

Hi
I just saw this and was wondering if you still kayak fish and where do you go? I’m looking at purchasing a fishing Kayak. I too live in Salisbury but not sure where to go.

Thanks for the help!
Brad

Hi Brad,

I am set up with all the gear to do it, but met a couple guys who have boats...so I haven't kayak fished, except

for a couple (nothing caught) trips out on the St, John River..

One of them took me out on the Miramichi last year and we Cleaned up on stripers.

He said kayakers do good there too...so that's where I plan to go when it warms up.

 

I also want to try for trout and smallies, if i can find a place to do it.

 

Don

Hi Don
Thanks for reaching out. I’m narrowing it down to 2 kayaks....The Pescador Pro 10’ or the new Pescador Outlaw 11.5.. I would like to hit the Miramichi as well and look at other spot. There is a FB page call Hook and Paddle and they are starting a tournament series which sounds interesting. I would like to go from Petty to Salisbury and drop a line here and there and get out at Highland park

That sounds interesting.  I may be interesting in doing that too.

BTW Brad, how old are you, friend?

just curious, friend. I'm 75

I went out with a kid who was 17 and it wasn't a very good mix.

 

Have you gotten your kayak yet?

(I know you were considering 2 different models)

 

I need a rack to put my kayak on my car before I can take it anywhere,

but doing a Petitcodiac River fishing run sounds great.

 

When would you be ready to do it, Brad?

Not sure...I haven’t purchased it yet but narrowed it down to two. Pescador Pro 10’ or the new model Perception Outlaw...should be making a decision in a week I hope.

And there are other things too.

Like an anchor, paddle, pole holders, ice chest or way to keep what we catch fresh, milk crate.

 

I've got all those things, but need racks for my car to carry my yak.

How will you carry your yak?   With roof racks, or do you have a pickup?

Have you decided on which kayak you are going to get?

 

Here are some youtubes about anchor rigging and an anchor trolly

I'm learning about anchoring so, these are good for me too

Brad.....I'm just about ready to make a Petitcodiac River fishing run now.

 

In fact,we live on the river....it's our backyard boundary.

We live on the south side of Main Street and the projection of Reeder Rd.

 

So we could leave one vehicle at my place and take our boats up river in another.to where we want to launch.

Having fished the little river frequently, I'm familiar with the current.   And a small anchor will 

be needed so we could stop now and then to fish the holes.

 

Give me a call if you want to go....I'm going to do it either way,
