Kayak Fishing for Striper on the Chattahoochee River – Morgan Falls

Kayak Fishing for Striper on the Chattahoochee River – Morgan Falls. Nick Adams 5/18. What began a beautiful day on the Chattahoochee River at Morgan Falls, turned into a water logged rainout in less than an hour. But not before we were able to boat a nice striped bass. This one bit a LIVE Target Swimbait Threadfin http://amzn.to/2rxoRgS. I got a few nice hits with no hookup prior to this fish inhaling the swim bait. They’re out there. But there is a decent amount of pressure. Every time i go kayak fishing at Morgan Falls, there’s usually someone there before me in a boat or kayak specifically striper fishing. There’s not a lot of water to fish here. So I wait in the parking lot until they finish up. So be courteous to other anglers, give space, and expect to be casting at a group of fish who have seen every fluke in Bass Pro Shops. But… they’re in there. On this trip i was driven out by the torrential downpours. I probably could have stayed. The rain stopped by the time i had fished loading the gear. But, ya always gotta think about lighting… when kayaking near a power plant.

The Vibe Kayaks Yellowfin 100 is a great kayak for this kind of fishing;

  1. carry it over rip-rap to launch
  2. paddled up river 100 yards up river
  3. coast over the current or sit in an eddy and cast

I’m 6’2″ and 230lbs… and most people would tell you that I’m too large of a man to paddle a kayak this size. But most people just assume. I kayak fish the Yellowfin 100 all of the time and catching bass, striper, trout…etc. Fishing with a small kayak like this, allows me to put all my gear on my shoulder and walk hundreds of yards if need be.
