    Default New to yakkin new to yak fishin and new to reds from the yak

    In less than a week it will be 2 years since my wife had an anurizm burst in her brain and the news got even worst with them finding a total of five of them in her brain
    it has been a hard 2 years for sure with many ups and down and im glad to have God and great friends on our side.
    Prayers were answered every day of this dilema as she has come thru with flying colors over the last 2 years and everyones continued support has meant alot so to those who know us im glad to write this report.
    Ruth and i decided to get her back out on the water today but not from the boat,yet a kayak



    this is the first time she has paddled on a tide flow creek and the frist time since she was a wee little girl
    We hit bear creek around 6 pm as the tide was just turning to come in and set off to a place i managed a few reds the day before,it was a little hard on her since she hasnt really been out of the house all that much this year except to the stores.
    We had only been in the spot for 15 minutes when the first red slammed her but pulled off but not long after that i hear the reel scream a bit and the rod bending hard,the FIGHT was on
    When all was said and done she had landed her first red from the yak at 20 inches




    She said she was up for more so i rebaited her up and put her back in the spot and 5 minutes later she was doing battle again with another drum



    This one was under slot but never the less another yak drum for her



    After this fish we started to head in since it was getting dark and the wind was rough and now she was gonna have to paddle not only the current but the wind as well and she did awesome.
    There is a moral to this post if ya know what i mean and it is BELIEVE in the power of prayer and believe in GOD cause he is real and all around us,most of all when things look the darkest always dig deep and push on,friends and family will always be there to help.
    Thank you all each and everyone of you whom have said prayers and have befriended her over the years and know that your prayers have all been answered,THANK YOU.
