Most memorable paddle?
Night kayak fishing trip at Tiki Island. It was dark, quiet, a little creepy - one of the lagoons reminded me of the scene in Jaws where the fisherman gets his boat upset in the night. But there were jellyfish everywhere and everytime you took a paddle stroke they'd get stirred up and they'd start emitting purple bioluminescence. It was one of the neatest things I've ever seen. And we caught quite a few speckled trout and redfish that night too.
How long have you been paddling?
Here's the new T-160 at Bay Area Park.
Here's my old T-140 in Jones Lake, West Galveston Bay.
I picked up my new T-160 this morning. She's a beauty - slender, graceful, and looks like a fish-catching machine. I'm getting her all rigged before I take a pic, but I hope to have her out by Wednesday.
I didn't know this site had a place to blog. That's kinda neat. This whole site has changed in the few weeks since I found it. I'm enjoing it so far, just with there were more fishing folks here. I'm sure that will change with time, it looks like this place is just starting.
I think I'll write my fishing reports here, time of day, temps, bait, etc. I'll even write location until I get potlicked. No potlickers allowed. Update: On July 25, 2011 someone posted a link to my blog…Continue

Thank you so much for your help! I will be going to the Dallas area in the next few weeks, so I will find the store and go check out everything. Online is great but sometimes you actually have to be able to see an item in real life! I will keep reading everything I can get my hands on so I can be prepared. I am literally starting from scratch!
Thanks for sharing your photos. Makes me want to load up my kayaks and hit the Laguna Madre. I mostly fish Port Mansfield. South Padre or lower Laguna is pretty much fished out. At least the last 8 times I went there. Went 0 for 8.
I was bummed. I missed seeing your blogs. Thought maybe you were busy. Then one day I clicked on your member page, and saw the blog entries were there. That's when I relaized blogs weren't showing anymore....
I've moved back to LA, and went into a shop I worked at for years, but hadn't been in in 3 years or so. 40% of the shop is fishing kayaks! We might have had a few rod holders when I was there. The manager told me that fishing kayaks and kayakers were what was keeping the store afloat....
