July 24th – North Shore Kayak Trip

July 24, 2008

Finally got the kayak out into the salt. Launched from water street and paddled along the Beverly shoreline up to Manchester. Did not get all the way to Manchester I don’t think but was fairly close to Misery Island. Sky was getting dark and the last place I wanted to be was caught out there during a storm. Headed back in towards salem then up to Danvers where my wife would later pick me up at the Rt 35 bridge. 12 miles of trolling a tube and worm and only two bites (if they even were). I also chucked a sluggo around but no takers.

Just as I put the kayak on the roof of the truck it started to rain out pretty bad and thunderstorm rolled in. Talked to someone on the phone not long after that and they went to Marblehead and had a great day catching schoolies. Oh well, you live and learn. Was still cool to get the kayak on the saltwater for the 1st time. Man that thing is stable.
