R/channel is a great place to fish with a yak. Theres so many places to try and theres lots of fish in the area now.
As for accessories for your kayak:
1. STS Fishing Seat
2. Scotty Rod Holder
3. Drift chute
4. Anchor 3lb
Heres a link to a site. Sammy has a Scupper Pro TW and its all rigged out so you can get an idea of what you might want to do with yours. Check out his site he has some great pictures and how-to:
95% of the time I flyfish from the yak. Then 5% of the time I'll use bait mostly for fluke fishing. I troll a lot when paddling from 1 spot to the next. Sometimes you'll catch more fish doing that. The STS fishing seat works real well for trolling. If you don't know about the STS Fishing Seat check it out at this site: WWW.KAYAKFISHING.COM But don't buy it from them there to expensive. Theres other places that sell it for less money. I also have a fish finder rigged to my kayak so when I know theres fish around I will work the area hard.
A drift chute will always keep you moving in the same direction as the tide especially if theres a wind blowing in a different direction. It will slow your drift down on fast moving tides like on full and new moons.
When I fish the S/shore I fish around the Jones Inlet area. If you ever want to hook up please feel free to e-mail me direct at anytime.
Great choice on kayak...I have a scupper pro tw and love it...I fish the long beach area and its great (surf and back bay). There is a launch around point lookout and there is great fishing back there. Flyrodder seems to have you in the right direction in terms of what you need to start off with. Keep us posted with some fishing reports from your area....joey
Caught my first and only fish so far on a kayak. Went out last night around 6:00 pm in hewlet harbor. ****tails all over the place. Used gummy shads. First fish killed the lure which was all I brought.
Casting is awkward and I need to find a way to bring my bag along were things are accessable.
