I haven’t got much time to write a full report, but the skinny of it is that I got an invitation from North Carolina kayak-fishing legend Ryan Hunnicutt, who helped me get the nice 38-inch red that I’d caught on my trout set up — medium-action rod, 3000-series reel and 12-pound braid. The kicker is, he didn’t take me fishing; instead, he took me to school, catching four reds, 44 to 49 inches in length — not bad for just under three hours of fishing! I wish I had a chance to get back, but I have a ticket for a thirty-day, all-expenses-paid trip to the beautiful 29 Palms.
