I haven’t been kayak fishing in quite a while, and today was lined up to be an excellent Solunar day, beautiful weather, I figured why not? It’s a weekend, no other plans. Let’s go fishing!
Update to Fishing blog
For years now my fuzzy little fishing buddy and I would go on weekly trips to the lake or pond and “catch the feesh” as I would tell him, and he would get all excited, dance around and start whimpering. He loved going fishing, even if it just meant dangling there from my chest harness and sleep while I caught the fish. He just loved to be there.
The overnight temperature is finally warm enough for me to go fishing in the morning, so my fuzzy little fishing buddy and I started this year’s regular trips with a trek to Evelyn Hallman.
Why I’m no longer a fan of the palomar knot
To most anglers (and boy scouts) the palomar knot is one of the basic fishing knots. Fairly simple to tie and recommended even by fishing line manufacturers on their packaging. After this past week’s events I will not be using this knot any longer.
The Solunar data table said today and tomorrow would be excellent days, so my fuzzy little fishing buddy and I decided to try it out. We were not disappointed!
