Page 2 of my gallery there are 3 pictures of a 45" pike I caught in the Passaic from a kayak. I had a very good year for them in the kayak, I have caught about 50 or so, from last march until now.The day I caught the 45" I also caught a 42", and a 36".
Incredible photos in your gallery. Credit for taking a picture, holding a fishing rod,camera and balancing a kayak! I kayak fished in Maine this summer. Belgrade Lakes. Caught a 24" Pike and had a blast. Where on the Passaic is the water clean enough to have fish like that. Went canoeing on the Passaic years ago and saw nothing but refrigerators and shopping carts in the water.
I caught most of them near Twin Bridges in Wayne, but have caught them as far up river in Fairfield. Even caught a few below the falls in Elmwood Park. The river is fairly clean now, and have even caught a good amount of large mouth , small mouth b [no swearing please] and perch. Did great in the ocean this year too, with many fluke, blues, and a few stripers. I went for stripers this past Sunday at Sandy Hook, but didn't get anything.
Yes, kayak fishing for stripers!!! Ocean side of Sandy Hook. I even made a trip to Montauk this year with the kayak, but just caught blue fish on that trip. Also took it to Myrtle Beach this year and caught several Spanish Mackerel, and a few sharks, with the biggest being just over 5 feet long, that towed me in the ocean until he was tired enough for me to reel the kayak to him. All released unharmed..
