There are some out of the way sand lakes to fish between Camp Mackall and Ft. Bragg. They get fished hard by locals at the access put ins but there is unfished water in all of them where the shoreline vegetation prohibits bank fisherman.

RidingDonkeys, you can pretty much store a kayak anywhere you store a bike or car. They are light enough to use a small pulley/hoist and hang them overhead.

Just don't store them in sun light. That will kill the kayak....

303 Plastic Protectant will keep plastic kayaks looking like new and will restore an old faded boat to close to new color.

It will look new but 303 won't reverse the damage done by the sun's UV's. Today's plastic boats have much better UV protection than those 20 years ago but exposing the boat to the sun daily will still shorten the life of the boat. 20+ years ago, there was a hometown whitewater kayak manufacturer named Noah Kayaks. I'm sure some of you heard of the AQ and the Jetti. Maybe not unless you were paddling whitewater in the Southeast in the 80's. Vlad (The owner and designer) didn't have a warehouse so he stored his new boats outside of his shop. His boats were all the rage in the late 80's and so just about everyone bought one. About 2 years later, almost every one of those boats cracked and today, you will be hard pressed to find a Jetti or AQ in paddling condition. His boats were brilliantly designed and about 10 years ahead of the times but the excessive number of "defective boats" Killed Noah Kayaks. A friend of mine sold a Jetti Grande in pristine condition a few years ago for about $1200 on ebay. (He paid about $500 new back in '87) It survived because it was his wife's boat and she didn't paddle so it spent 20 years in the basement. The short end of the story is 303 is awesome stuff. It will keep the boat looking new and it may add some protection to the plastic but you should still store the boat out of the sunlight.

Luni, there are some big bass in Holland Lake, and nobody fishes it. I caught a 4lb bass there two years ago on Christmas eve.

Glad I checked this before I put my helmet on. Looks like I'm going somewhere else today.

Yep. Got back from DC last night. It was an 8 hour drive. I-95 is proof that Hell exists, and that it is here on Earth.

FishHunt, seriously I owe you a beer. I saw your last post and did a quick google maps search for hard to access water and ended up at a certain lake that shall remain nameless with almost no shore access and no boat ramp. And 2 miles closer than Holland. There was one other guy that was already on the water in a very nicely sorted fishing kayak. The only way to fish it was to put in at a 3ft clearing on the shore. I was starting down the lilypads and grass mat and a fish hit top water so I tossed a plastic worm where it hit. I never even felt the strike, let the worm sit, took in the slack and there was a fish on. I think it was my 4th cast. Chased a lot of top water striking bass but nothing would hit. At about 8AM I was working some tree overhang on the shore when I heard a splash behind me. I whipped around and in 3 casts I hooked what felt like a damn boat anchor that promptly hauled ass around the bow of the kayak and exploded out of the water.

16" largie on a weightless watermelon seed trick worm new personal record for freshwater and an awesome way to end a great weekend of bass fishing. Had 2 smaller fish miss the hook after that and didn't even care. I could have gone home right after he swam off and it would have been a good day.

Thanks for the tip WW.
