Coach and I were invited by Pescador to attend the monthly meeting of the AKF last night. Two plus's were immediately put in their column. It was held at Taco Mac's ---- great buffalo wings, and ice cold beverages. And number two, it was a group of some of the nicest people you'd ever want to meet.
Pescador ran the meeting like a true showman, and they had some great giveaway items. I even got a great T-shirt. Thanks!
Now I've never been to eager to jump into or on top of a tippy kayak, but after talking to some of these folks, it's clear that I'm missing a completely unique part of the angling sport. I know a lot of folks on the BBS board enjoy yakking too, and the ability to get into water and cast to fish that may have never seen a plug is very compelling. So I may yet be a convert. I'd bet the schooling stripers on Hartwell and Lanier would be much easier targets from stealthy yak, instead of twin 150's gurgling.
They have a great website, and a very informative forum. They have a club event coming up in the spring down at Cape San Blas, and it sounds like a lot of fun.
If you're considering getting 'really' close to the water, a yak may be in your future. Check them out at www.atlantakayakfishing.com
And tell 'em you're one of the Nuts and Bolts fishing nuts. They gave me a warm welcome and I'm sure you'll get the same.
