"nother Newbie

Post by bananayak » Mon Mar 31, 2014 1:07 pm

Hello all,
Have been enjoying reading and learning about kayaking here. My favorite lesson was the "rig to flip, dress to swim" tip.
Looking forward to seeing any/all ya'll out on the water on those perfect weather days! Most common spots lately have been the lighthouse and the Aucilla. Not any bragging days this year yet regarding fish catches but I figure getting out on the water in the kayak is already a winner of a day and bringing fish onboard is a bonus day.
Cheers

Haha! Banana or papaya, both are "ripe" colors that help us find you in your secret honey holes! :lol:

And I know how to spell both but I just don't know when to stop! :lol: Old joke..couldn't resist. :P

You have the right outlook. Go out there and get 'em.

Today sure would have been a nice day to be out there.
