Kayak Fishing for Smoothound

June to August saw the hound fishing in full flow, what brilliant fun!. Evening sessions were regularly producing 10-15 hounds, many of which ran into double figures. The sport was constant meaning fishing two rods was paramount to madness!. Bait of choice was Spider peeler crab, tho whole squid picked up a fare share of fish as well.

Hooking a hound of double figures on light tackle has to be experienced, several hard runs followed by a dogged fight right to the edge of the yak where acrobatics often ensue. Getting them into the yak isn't too difficult though they have a tendency to 're-arrange' your cockpit layout if you don't take a firm hand to them.

Smoothound fishing has to be the highlight of the year, nothing compares... roll on 2009
