Push it! Push it real good!!

   I will admit I'm a little envious of my southern flats brethren polling around their boats stalking fish. I have been doing it here, so to speak, but have not found the perfect push pole for my Ultimate. My search is over. Boredom searching around the web I stubbled across A company who manufactures a unique push pole. The pole comes in two sizes, 6'-12' and 9'-17'. That's the beauty of it comes in sizes, the pole telescopes to infinite stopping points within its overall length. Perfect for transporting and even better for the kayak. The 6' stows perfectly when not being used than can be adjusted easily to the changing water depths. The business ends of the pole comes with the duck foot on one side for soft bottom and point on the other for hard bottoms. Coming in at just over three pounds it is easy to handle and pleasure to push you around. If standing and sight fishing is your style of fishing you need to check out The Superstick!

Slow Days aren't always Bad

  A group of us including Kris and William went on the hunt again today. I know there are places here we can go and have some success but sometimes it's also nice to be the first one(s) somewheres else when the bite starts. Typically here in Va Bch. late March and early April bring the first inshore species to Rudee Inlet. This spring has been nothing normal and neither have the arrival of some species. At again, we were hoping to find some Bluefish and a stray Red or two. Neither of which were there. A nice day was not going to go to waste. I have seen and heard for years about Corky's lures in Texas. They are like the crack for trout and reds in that part of the nation. A small company that built its lure from Paul Browns garage were hard to come by and never made it to shelf's in tackle shops here on the east coast. Recently the Mirro Lure company bought this lure design and with help from Paul himself are now making the lure more available to anglers everywhere besides the Lonestar state. I happen to have bought some at a recent fishing expo attended in NC. Today with the slow action I broke out the Corky and gave it some tests. Wow!! Is all I can say. This slow sinking to suspending lure is really live like. You can also walk the dog both on top or slightly below the surface. Moral of my story, instead of quiting on a slow day get some of those lures out you bought and never use and you just might find a new weapon in your arsenal.
