The arrival of those fake Zmans has coincided with a bit of a dip in fish activity - both the Eps and red fin are being a bit fussy. I was throwing around some unweighted sand worms at both species this evening. That seemed to perk them up a bit.

But my standard mojiko worms are too thin to be durable enough to use on species with so many short strikes.

So I searched for some more fake ZMANS in a sandworm style.

The swimming action on these is bound to be better than stuff Ive used before

I did buy what appears to be the same product from 2 different sellers - this was the more expensive of the 2 - but the video of them being handled got me fired up - soooo slinky - I havent seen a vid of them swimming yet

What kind of idiot buys a cheap inflatable kayak to fish out of - This sort of idiot👍

Ive already fished out of an inflatable belly boat without putting holes in it - so I figured with the temps dropping, I may aswell get a yak aswell.

Foot room sux bad but the seat is super comfy.

I was chucking big lures for the first 2 hours without a hit - So I swapped down to a 1.5 inch paddle tail. That didnt do much but at least I got a little reddy - Then I decided to troll the 1.5 inch for the last 50m back to the car - thats when the yella scoffed it
