After getting Kermit on Friday I decided to do an early morning fish at NN. Conditions were perfect, Jester out of town, Baz unable to attend and great conditions.
With the outgoing tide I headed out past rough rock for my first drift getting use to the rudders and paddle length on the way. Chucked the drift Shute over and I was off.
First one landed was released to appease the gods, not so lucky the next for. Hard going until the tide turned then it picked up.
I only wanted a feed so the 4 was enough, save the others for next time.
Kermit did extremely well and is nice to have a good platform to fish from. Just better than the trusted Espri Angler. Nice work Viking.
