Well this was a day I’d been looking forward to for a long time. My roof rack was finally sorted so I could now take up kayak fishing again. I’d managed to pick up a Kari-tek high lift roof rack system on Ebay reasonably cheap and after a couple of months I was able to fit it. As luck would have it my wife also wanted to try kayak fishing so I was able try out my new Ocean Kayak Malibu 2XL fishing kayak. This is a 2 seater fishing kayak that I’d purchased off a friend around 3 years ago but never got to use.
We loaded up the van the night before ready for an early get away and set off around 4:30 am, arriving at Redcar around 5am at our usual launch slipway. The sun was just rising as we arrived and the sea was completely flat calm. We couldn’t ask for better weather than this. At times the sea looked like a sheet of glass, how I wish I’d brought along my DSLR camera. There were definitely some money shots there for the taking.
After half hour or so setting up we took a few photos of the kayak fishing set up before heading out.
