There’s no two ways about it, kayaking and fishing at the same time is not easy. Yes you can get to parts of the body of water you’re fishing that others might not be able to reach but that’s not before you’ve snagged your line on your hat, spun round in circles a million times in the wind and got your backside soaked. Today I went with the two rod approach – dragging one and casting the other. I’d love to tell you that it wasn’t a massively futile effort but I’d be lying. I have no idea what would happen if I actually did manage to catch something large like a big pike while in the kayak but I suspect it might involve me getting wet and losing all my gear not to mention rescue helicopters and emergency crews. To quote Roy Scheider, I think I’m gonna need a bigger boat.
A whole new exercise in multi-tasking for me today – fishing by kayak. Didn’t catch anything which was probably for the best as the wind started to gust quite sharply on the lake. Anticipating some achy shoulders tomorrow!
