Took my first ever kayak fishing trip this past Saturday. Went down the south fork of the New River. I've always wanted to try this and I was not disappointed. Probably hooked on this kind of fishing. River was stained and very grassy. Made throwing soft plastics difficult. Threw most spinners, stick bait and top water. Caught about 20 smallies in the 8"-12" range. Lost 2 very nice ones right at the boat. Did catch the biggest creek chub/horny head I'd ever seen. Measured it at 14". I was stunned how big it was. Caught quite a few redeye too. All in all, it was a big learning experience and a ton of fun. Gonna try a few more times with kayak rentals before buying to see what I like best. But I can definitely predict a purchase in the future.
