Well after months of sitting in storage, I was finally able to get the Perception Pilot into the Yegua Creek for a little fishing. I couldn't of asked for better weather. The sun was shining, the wind was out of the north, and the water was cool but murky. Regardless, I launched at the boat ramp and set across the lake in search of fish. The bite was slow throughout the day, but I did manage to reel in several fish throughout the day. Most were undersized crappie and bass. I did reel in a nice size cat and 2 nice sized bass. Fished the creek for several hours and spent time fishing and taking photos of my catches and the scenery. Ran into 3 boaters but did not run into anyone else in a kayak. I'm sure that will change as January comes around the corner. The Perception Pilot performed well and I'm happy with the purchase. Tracked well, good stability, and great speed. Much faster than my old Jackson Kayak. Had to skip out on this weekend due to work, but there is always next weekend!!!

Nice pics!

I hear a lot about the Yegua but haven’t made it there yet myself. Sounds like a kayak destination for some reason.

cheers


A good rule of angling philosphy is not to interfere with another fisherman's ways of being happy, unless you want to be hated.

Thanks for the report. Those pictures are incredible. What type of camera are you using?

Great photos! Those areas down there around Yegua and Nails Creek look great. I really need to make a trip down there.

For anyone who wants to see more of it, William P. Tedrick publishes videos on YouTube covering his kayak and bank fishing escapades down there. Some published here, too, but I can't recall what he calls himself here.

Here is one from his "Fish Tales" collection. Worth a viewing if you want to familiarize yourself with the area, what works and more. He covers a lot of water, different seasons, different targeted fish, etc.

His videos are also great if you are stuck inside on a rainy day.

Where do you launch for Yegua? I was about to head to Nails creek state park today and mess around as I've never been to Somerville.

Launch at the Nails Creek Boat ramp and paddle across to the Yegua or Nails creek.

Hi all, I hope this is acceptable to post here, but I started a public Instagram page to put out many of my photos that I take while fishing or traveling. Most are from Lake Somerville and many of them have been put up on this site. I don't use an expensive DSLR, but rather use my Iphone and fix up the photos. I'm not promoting anything or selling, just want to share my love for photography and fishing.
