PostSubject: My first swim!   Sun Jun 10, 2012 7:14 pm

Mullet Miller, Josh, Gary and I launched at 6am from the store to chase some Fluke. Gary bought a kayak from me and Josh was testing an Elie Gulf. Mullet and I decided to test a few too. Mullet took the Native Mariner out and I took the Freedom Hawk. The fishing was slow and I only found a bluefish.

I put the Freedom Hawk through its paces even being swamped by a boat. The kayak didn't flex and I was a steady as being on land! More on that in the review.

Mullet and I headed back to the ramp to get the store open for the day. It's hard to explain, but the ramp has filled in with sand at low tide. This created 20 feet of water, then 20 feet of land, followed by 20 feet of water and so on. With the pontoons closed, I was riding the Freedom Hawk like a scooter across each gap of water. I pushed my luck on the last gap before the ramp. I fell backwards missing the seat completely and hit the drink head first. I must have screamed just enough for Mullet to turn around and see the last of me disappear. I popped up to hear him roaring!

We all have to dump sooner or later. I'm glad I got that out of the way. It's been haunting me for years!!!

Now that we would love to see a video of Enough Already
Glad yer ok and didn't lose a bunch of stuff.
Flukin up north was really slow too, but we got bailed out with the cocktails, too many to even keep track of.
Hopefully SeaFlea got some good picks of the birds diving and blues swirling.
Skip got a world class skate cheers

Glad you fellas had a good time! Did Mike (Redfish/Bluefish) catch up to you boys?

Seaflea needed a fun day. He's been busting his ass helping at the store on his days off. Mullet and Lunchbox too!

Should have told Mullet you were just evaluating the rig as a noodling platform!

Let me know if you can or cannot get to the album. I can post individual pics, I just figured this would be quicker.

LMAO. Nah, I'm just noticing that Olympus pics seem to have depth or better definition. I don't know what you call it because I know nothing about cameras. I want an Olympus.
