So a friend has recently donated a tinner, trailer and 9.5 hp to me so the yak hasn't seen as much action as other years so far. But I do have a few holes that only yaks can make it to and been out two times so far.

Like most others I've been seeing slow bass bites this far. Still managing a few but seeing alot of uninterested fish. Had a few great days on the wayer so far. And it's been a pleasure to get back out and quietly drift through nature nice and quietly.

The fish have all been nice, my pike in these pics has 4.5, but then cousin hippy had to show me up and net a 6 lbs pretty much right beside me!!

Bass have all been over 3 lbs, but still not a fiesty fight on them just yet.

Anyways, here's some pics from my trips out with cousin hippy.

Fish caught on frogs, spinners and the odd flipping jig

Just an idea of the depths I was catching pike in. I would use my yak as a paddle board( not the easiest thing for a guy at 6'4" and 260) and sight fish these guys from a distance. Then if they hit I would carefully sit down to land them. Haven't managed to fall in yet.

To add here's a couple of the bass I got from the yak on the same opener trip... And by the way thrillhouse you are easily 6'5 if not 6'6! Don't sell yourself short because that would be selling me shorter!
