Only real decision was if I should see a Psychologist before or after I go fishing. Not really, I know I'm not right. I left the fly rod last trip but never saw any bedding activity so the thought entered my crowded mind...make room voices! It's pre-spawn and the bass I caught were mostly chasing. Good situation if you like throwing streamers. That idea was quickly isolated and quarantined. As a kayak angler, I always check the weather forecast before getting on the water....for obvious reasons...if it's not obvious...you probably need to take up golf or scrabble or something equally lame. No storms today but the wind was predicted to be SSE @ 15 mph.

Highlight of the trip. Guy in a 40K bass boat drives up on me and starts fishing 30 yards ahead of me. I paddle ahead of him. Eventually, we're fishing the same water. I'm on the inside of the cypress trees and he's fishing the outside of the trees. Fish gods reward me....the guy in the kayak hooks into a fish while the guy in the fancy boat, with the fancy electronics, throwing fancy baits from fancy rod/reels...ok, we probably have the same baits...catches nothing. A few minutes later he cranks up and leaves. Have a good day, hope your motor blows up, and you're late to work! If you get fired and have to sell that fancy gear, even better! Dude I'm in a kayak and somewhat restricted on the water I can fish. Yes...I suffer from boat rage sometimes. Just something a kayak angler has to deal with but I'm getting better. Well, I tell myself I'm getting better.
