Took out a newbie to kayaking on my PA today, while I was in the HobieSport. It's been a while since I was in my old kayak, feels like more work now...the PA sort of pampers you with comfort and room. It's always fun to catch fish, but passing on the knowledge is key...especially showing someone the ropes for the first time. Bringing out new people isn't all that new for me, but this guy caught on near immediately. Not new to fishing, like the lot of us; the transformation over to the kayak requires new physics...this lad has it downpat.
We fished some backwaters for fluke, but my main goal was to show him how to use the kayak...I guess Hobie makes it easy or this mans's a natural.
Bob M fills the PA nicely at 6'4", and he was into fish on a steady pick...shorts that is. Not to complain, he was like a kid again.
My fish were unimportant, the day belongs to BOB; and his first keeper kayak fluke was a 3.5 #er!!!!!! Fishing the right tide,structure,and bait needless to say is important...but having confidence is key. Getting Bob off my kayak and to stop fishing today took some work, the man's HOOKED!!!!!
This is what sharing is all about.
When Bob made it back home from fishing with me, he ordered the new PA before the wheels could stop...the man's jumping into the kayak game first rate. kudos to those that can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Hobie makes it easy...almost to easy. MJ.
Here's Bob working the net.
Bob makes this 3.5 #er look small ...it was a beautiful fluke.
