Hey peeps. Wife n I recently picked up yaks. She's more into pleasure cruise while that is torture for me to not fish while on the wet.
We're in NW AL and I've heard rumors of a yak tourny but have failed in verification.
My yak is a wm special that's marketed as a fisher but falls short of the target. I've done some mods and still have a few to incorporate to make it a better yak for me.
I'd like to hook up with other yak fishers for - 1) not being out solo. 2) learn of more or better mods to do. 3) learn more of my area. & 4) CATCH FISH!!
So if we have a community of Yakkers I'd be interested in teaming up for some outings! We can pm for coordinating and m&g. TIA and tight lines

TooMuch.....try contacting Allen and Jessica Norris at the "Yak Shak" in Birmingham. They are tied into the kayak tournament groups around the area. My son, JJ, is one of their product specialist. (www.theyakshak.com)

Hello 2Much,

Not certain where U2 hide out. Mine is a 17' Gnu. One ain't enuff for a gnu, n ain't got no Yak.

Where NE AL yawl disembark? There's great fishing holes all around you, and there's plenty more south of you.

There's plenty CLubs. U by chance yak'd the Talladega Creek Grist Mill, yet? Lazy Float and Clubbers Hole.

If you get a hankerin' to go fish, welp, I'm interested. I got 2 paddles, n we kn load any boat full a vittles. Gnu'n means Fish'n N Picknkn" 2me. N, I travel. But, ain't got no Yak!

In the last few days, I got another 17' gnu, and I found an old aluminum 1959 FeatherCraft Cisco v-hull settin' aboard an ole rusty trailer. Just gettin' it to the yard's its own story. Stuck the 1 7/8" short-shaft ball-hitch into the left of three hitch'em holes in the rear bumper, too short for a nut. Made it back to the TeePee without spilling anything on the road. Yeah, everything works, and it rolled real good. Might name this thing Ugly Ducklin, until I unruffle her feathers. Still ain't figured out what color paint matches an Aluminum boat, a blue gnu and a green gnu. This morning, was quoted 2 Benjamin Franklins just to sand-blast, another 1 and a half Benjis to prime N paint. That's more than half what I gave for the whole Tote'n Kabootul. Guess, will find some them extras layin' around the shed to help make the choices easy. Hope there's enuff sand-paper and oil-based enamel.

If I kn figure out how to get pictures off the picture fon and into this discussion group, welp, yawl kn picture that, then.

Hello 2Much, br br Not certain where U2 hide out.... (show quote)

Creek...that hurt my thinker! But I unnerstan. We float a local lake aka lil bur crick lake. Thars a crick spouts oudda da water wall on summer weekends for visitors. Too much for us. I'm up for a fishing trip , maybe a midpoint location? But also wanting to see how I level up on catching under pressure. Thanks for the info. Sorry to hear that fella wants sooo much for such an easy task.

Hey 2,

Caught a glimpse of them Lunkers hang out at the Bear:
https://www.outdooralabama.com/reservoirs/little-bear-creek-reservoir

Thinkin', bout some time, soon, I might load da gnu aboard this Ram n come get summa them!

U know where some them Fat Bellies be hidin?

I'm game! Pls, Send a Formal Invite, n, I don't mean one them smoke signals from one ur mountain tops. Weather's blowin' in from SE, right now. You'd get a reply from Memphis, instead a me.

Lemme know whether I should bring some cornmeal, flour, Tony's, a skillet and sum lard, else maybe U hidin' some that in some stowage cooler on one of them bends in the creek.

Lots of other places tweenst there and here, case ur lookin' fer some other adventure, too. Will make sure we don't never fall off a Fall.

Agreed, let's listen to Mother Nature. Sometime before end of Feb, weather permitting sounds great!

We're gonna have to the State of AL and GOogle Maps. Seems, the town and the reservoir are a few more miles apart then I'd have expected. And, there's another area referred to as Bear Creek, along Bear Creek Rd, between Duncanville and Tusk. Likewise, HorseShoe Bend is down here on the Tallapoosa River. Maps located another Horseshoe Bend, nearby your Bear Creek Res. AL is so good at confusing some a them Yanks!

A buddy lives up there in Oakman, really close to an old bridge covering a gorgeous bend in one of the Warrior River feeder creeks, covered in Lily Pads. Might call it "The Lost Creek." Haven't fished there, yet. Is close to you. Something like 140 - 150 miles from your hut to mine.

There's also a few more spots on Lake Gainesville, just north of the Dam I'd like to fish.

Plenty of water to fish from there to here!

Creekman, that's about 70 miles SE of me. Unfamiliar with the area but sounds like a good mid point for some shore lunch!

Thank you Jackson. I'll look into it
