This past Saturday I took my wife out fishing in the kayak for the first time ever. We spent about 30 minutes on Friday evening at the local park teaching her how to cast a spinning reel and pop a popping cork. She picked up on everything pretty quick, and come Saturday morning, we were ready to go. We paddled a little over 5 miles and she caught the only fish of the day while wearing my extra pair of size 12 waders which were huge on her. The fish was a 17″ flounder that she casted at after seeing nervous baitfish scatter in an area. She was using a Midcoast Popping Cork and 1/16th oz jighead with a pearl white gulp shrimp. Next time we’ll be hoping for redfish.
