Specks, Schoolies, and a Long Paddle

It felt like an eternity. The leaves gathered on my kayak for over a month as work and family priorities overshadowed my angling desires. But as soon as my slate was clear, the familiar feelings of my Werner gliding through the water and fish putting that certain curvature in my rod ignited my senses.

Sea Change and Spreading the Love

The window-down kind of days have slowly brought on the wader-up type of outings. Like a banner of farewell, the bold colors of the trees bid bon voyage to the mass exodus that brings about a sea change to the Chesapeake Bay fishery.

It’s Lightline Time: Safety in the Night

There’s nothing like the feeling of creeping under the darkness of a bridge to see a group of stripers stacked like cordwood, picking your target, and hooking up. As temperatures drop around the Mid-Atlantic, stripers are gravitating to lighted structure, creating some of the best fishing of the year for kayak anglers.

Scientists Investigate Boondoggles

Breaking news, scientists have discovered the migration patterns of a group of kayak fishermen known as YakAnglers. The first documented case of this migration was back in February 2011, when kayak fishermen from around the country migrated south descending on a small area in Jacksonville Florida know as Little Talbot Island. At first scientists thought this was an isolated event but soon noticed a pattern.

Going Big in the Wide Open

The mindset was that if we were lucky, one of us might get a shot at a cobia. The five of us knew going into it that finding mister brown of respectable size in a kayak is no easy feat. Yet, we all trekked out to the beach to take our chances. Our realistically curtailed expectations quickly found a serious deterrent as we stood there stupefied at the much higher than expected surf. As luck would have it, that wouldn't be the only curve ball of the day.

Fish Taggin' Bender

After receiving info on some of my tagged fish recaptures, I've been even more motivated to keep sticking it to 'em. So much so that I went on a bit of a bender with Richie Bekolay. On Saturday afternoon we went to Lynnhaven inlet and found the little red drum all over the place as well as a few small flounder and black sea bass. We eagerly watched the radar knowing that a storm was on the way. We got off just in time and waited it out in the parking lot. After the longer than expected down time, we made our way over to HRBT and searched the light line for some stripers. It took us a while, but we eventually found them. Most were fairly small (16"-18") but we managed a few skinny ones that went 23.5" and 24.5". I also jigged up a few itty bitty flounder and croaker. We got off the water around midnight and got to passing out in the our cars around 1:30.

Spring RVA Stripers

It definitely seems like all the local migrations are happening earlier this year. The warm water temperatures are expediting the process and I, like most kayak fishermen, am not complaining. The magic of this time of year is more than welcome, as many of the popular sport fishing species enter our local waters and get our juices flowing.

Back in the Saddle

Friday night couldn't come soon enough – I was itching from anticipation. At 10:30 p.m., the first stop was HRBT, where I met up with Justin. I paddled out, keeping my eyes peeled for the welcome sight of a striper silhouette. I was paddling over a small one when a voice greeted me out of the darkness: "Dude, there's a big one right in front of you…"

Tog-a-palooza and a Princess Rod

Sometimes, my brother and I don't talk for a while. But when we finally do, we pick up right where we left off... joking around, talking sports, and generally reaffirming how awesome it is to be a Choi. But, one thing we haven't been on the same page about is fishing. So all year, I've been trying to get him out on the water. It finally happened on Black Friday.
