Maybe you mean: 'image-hero'
Jared and Haley were on Norris Lake in Tennessee last week on their Hobie Outbacks. Norris is
home to 880 miles of shoreline and covers around 35,000 square miles. However, its size did not slow
them down with the Hobie Mirage drive at their disposal.
The day started throwing an assortment of light colored spinner baits and lures. This produced
fish but all small eager largemouth that could be seen striking the lures coming out of brush piles and
fallen logs. As fun as that was, they had hopes of landing something a little bigger to brag about. The
idea was to use the Mirage drives to troll for the big stripers that cruise up and down the shoreline.
What struck the lures however was a bit of a surprise. Jared landed a 19” smallmouth and of course, not
to be outdone by her husband, Haley landed two 16” smallmouth. With the water being crystal clear
and about 10’ of visibility in the water the Hobie Outback still allowed for a quiet slow troll along the
shorelines without disturbing the fish.
Can Hobie Kayaks be a better alternative to trolling for big striper and other fish compared to
the more common and noisy pontoon boat? Talk to our crew at Strictly Sail and check out the new 2015
line of Hobie Fishing Kayaks and decide for yourself.
