Headed out to GV this morning to do a little bait scouting since Blue cat season is starting very soon.
A lot of bait but very scattered in small schools and not easy to catch. Managed to catch a few gizzard shad and had just enough time to drag one around for a few minutes, BAM a good start to Whisker season!

Nice Deric! I guess at that point the trough is just there to keep the slime off your pants;)

This one took longer than most due to trying to keep it out of two drift socks that I had out and I had a hard time
getting it in the net far enough to stay in. I guess 5-8 minutes tops.

I've been going south a lot this summer for reds and sharks so I guess it would only be fair to take a trip up north for some monster blues.

Nice fish!!

Do you use a cast net out of your yak to catch bait, if so how?

Yes, Most important thing is a stable kayak.
Other than that it's almost the same as throwing on dry land. I'd recommend practicing in shallow water close to the truck until you get very comfortable. With water temps in the mid to lower 70's a bath wouldn't be to bad but as the temps drop
into the 60's and below you might want to always have dry clothes close by and a fishing buddy with you just in case.

Some people can throw sitting down, but I've never tried it.
