At the end of the night (morning? 3am) I had a very nice hit, bigger than the rest. I made a few more passes trying to reconnect but wasn’t able to. It left me hungry. So I worked the same tide 12 hours later. Much more success, even though it was daytime. I rarely fish during the day, but I’m trying to broaden my horizons this season. Eight bass taken at the top of the tide. Same lure ( and I tried others).
The best part for me was the combination of conditions, methods and strategies, and physical ability (balance, stamina) that were all were necessary today in order to make it happen.
That’s "kayak fishing" to me; a combination of skills brought to bear in a way that is uniquely capable of accomplish the task of catching fish in that situation. Throw in preparation (maintenance, outfitting, etc.) and luck and it can all come together beautifully.
