    I'm headed out to do some hooping tonight. (kayak) Anyone want to meet at about 6:30p at Shelter Island? Thinking of being out until 9:30/10. Probably do a little fishing during the soak.

    Do you have a boom and pulley system? Can't imagine pulling those hoops from a kayak without one.

    I do not. Gloves and arm strength... plus, only going to take 2 nets... more an experiment than a long night of fishing.

    I might meet you - I need to round up a kayak first. U know some good structure to drop around? I'm new to hooping this year but definitely interested!

    I'm planning to get out there about 6:20-6:30.

    Don't have much of a plan or experience either. (or high expectations!)

    Nice! It would be fun - I'm trying to line up a kayak real quick and if I do, I will let you know and plan to meet you. If I don't reply to this thread, I wasn't able to get the kayak - but great luck! Let me know how you do if I don't make it!

    You didn't miss anything. Tons of chop from every person in SD County with a boat going out. No bugs either. :facepalm:

    We went out Friday night and hooped all over the place and got 6 shorts! I've never struck out so bad this early in the season.

    The current was crazy. I'm going to need to weight stuff down better, I wasn't convinced that my gear stayed in place. And I need a few more runs to feel more comfortable out there, wasn't digging out top heavy the kayak got plus the waves created by an endless line of fishing boats.
