... even more so as the sun gets lower - I think the guy powering the wind machine is solar powered
BTW - I'm the opposite of you - I bought the rig to satiate my sailing bug and am now looking to fish more as something to do once I'm out "there".
Seems then, that our winds are also opposites, around here (Texas), the predominant summer wind pattern is a lul in the first few hours of dawn and a build up through the day/evening. In the past (in traditional kayaks), I usually tried to get back in before 2-3pm because the wind would kick up the surf something nasty. Now, Ill be happy to have that extra boost to take me home.
Long Island eh? I hear, there are Bluefin Tuna that roll past your neighborhood every year.
Now there's something to do! Troll around with a big sardine lure and see what happens. BF too much for a kayak? Yeah, probably.
