Trout Tuesday

Posted By: Nicholas Lytle
Location: Navarre FL
Boat: Predator PDL

Early Tuesday morning, I slid my Old Town Predator PDL into a protected body of water.  I pedaled up river, looking for signs of feeding fish.  The sun was rising and the river was coming alive.  A small bait fish skipped across the surface as it ran for its life.  I eased the kayak parallel with the rivers bank and made a quick cast.  As the lure slowly suspended, I pedaled backwards, aligning the kayak with the bank and preparing to set the hook.

I counted to ten and gave the lure a small twitch.  As the lure began to settle, I began counting for the second time.  This time I wouldn't make it far into my count before feeling the tap of a solid Speckled Trout.  I set the hook and slowly played the feisty fish into my net.  After a quick picture, I slid the Trout into the water and watched her disappear into the depths.
