Re: Sailing (Pacific Action Sails) - Cobra Marauder Fishing Kayak

befor you spend the big money on the sail I have to say that its not like sailing any other craft. you have no keel or out riggers(width like a catamaran) so is only good in a downwind situation you cant go across the wind. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Downwind-Wind-Sail-Kit-42-inches-Kayak-Canoe-Acc...

Re: Reloading mojo with a monster GT [w/ video]

Re: A grunt, grunt of a day..

thes grunters look like a fair fish. I don't mind those travally on the chew nice wide shoulders on them and firm white flesh mild flavor. think there called a tea leaf trevally if they got black spots/speckles over the body.

Re: Reloading mojo with a monster GT [w/ video]

nice stonker fish from the yak one of those rare catches you'll remember for a while I bet. only draw back of yak fishing is you cant put the hurt on like you can in a boat. but that's what makes it more fun isn't it.

Re: Seak mako 3.9

don't want to say it will handle open water and surf but looks like it will be ok in a little chop in an estury or river mouth. deffintly be more comfortable then your 2.4. down side is that seat being higher it will feel tippy as opposed to other sit on top kayaks because your that much more above ...

Re: New Hobie PA 12/14 and drive at ICAST

wow kayaks are getting pretty advanced now, I remember being happy getting around hands free. but have been pulled into some precarious positions while fighting fish near structure. this has got me a lot more excited then when the 180drive came out.

Re: Raby Bay, QLD kayak pontoon

never launced of a pontoon but can launch from raby bay beaches and double around to the canals. you can only own land to the low tide mark, so knowing that it is perfectly legal to fish from the water in the canals as long as you don't go on any ones ponton or boat which I can bet is not your inten...
