Ben and I have both been researching fishing specific kayaks over the past couple of months and both purchased kayaks in the past couple of weeks. Tonight was our first time out together in our new boats, Ben decided on a Nucanoe Frontier 12 and I chose the FeelFree Moken 12.5.
We went to one of our favorite early season striper spots and fished for a few hours. Ben had a few hits early and I had nothing to show as the sun started to set. We started to paddle back to the launch so we could get our kayaks loaded before dark, but I wanted to get one last drift in. After a few casts I felt the long lost tug of a striper on the other end of the line. This was my first striper of the year and the first fish in my new kayak. It was by no means a big fish but it always feels good to get that first striper landed!
