Live baiting is one of my favourite ways to fish on the kayak and it can be a killer method for some species. Keeping baitfish alive for long periods of time on a kayak has previously consisted of chucking fish in a bucket of water with an air pump, however they never last very long. Catching a fresh bait fish when you need to re-bait is very hit and miss too. Thankfully the struggle is no more with the Hobie Livewell!!
The weather has settled down and the sunshine is warm…. Spring has arrived and with it the mackerel have moved inshore to chase shoals of sand eels. The plan was to have a session afloat to hopefully find a few mackerel to stock up the bait freezer for future fishing trips. Me, Kieren and his friend Dwyer headed to a mark on the Lizard Peninsula in search of the shoals. Kieren and Dwyer shared the Hobie Outfitter Tandem and I used the RTM Abaco. The forecast was great, the sea was glassy calm and the tide would be pushing. All was looking well for catching mackerel.
