Going to try my luck at low tide this time. If there's an early bird out there that would want to join me We can meet at the cumuter parking lot off the Marit parkway at the sikorsky exit I think I have enough room for two kayaks in my truck so you don't have to worry about parking I will be launching from Birdseye boat launch. I would like to be on the water by 6:00 am I will bring the squid.

I'm not free on Saturday, but have a few questions about how you fish for fluke from your kayak:

First, based on your user name, do you fish from a Hobie?

Second, do you jig or troll the squid?

And third, do you ever drift and jig bucktails? That's actually what I'd be interested to try.

Oh, and fourth, can't vehicles without trailers park for free in the side lot at Birdseye?

Hi I have a ocean kayak prowler 13 . I drift with the tide always on the out going tide ( seems to work best for me ) I use a home made rig has a two hooks off a 3 way swivel 1 Oz jig with small soft plastic ( white or yellow) the other is a trailer with a spinner ( which is an attractor ) with a soft plastic or a plain bucktail ( no weight on this part) all hooks are tipped with squid. I'm not sure if you need a Stratford residents sticker on your car. All I know is the Stratford police are there a lot right at the entrance and I always see them checking the boating trailers that are parked. Any one can call Stratford parks department to see if you can park at the fishing dock side of the parking lot .
