Wow, don't think I've been that cold kayak fishing in some time. My hands and feet were numb and fishing was tough not being able to feel anything. The day was suppose to warm up but the air chilled you to the bone. Oh well at least I got to test out the new fishing poles and reels, from Emmrod and Qualia. The new Universal rods are just wonderful and that DM-40 reel from Qualia is a nice casting setup. On the Packer handle you've got an outfit that could land a tarpon. I just have to get some in range to try it out.
