Re: New kayak for a big bloke

I am 5'10 and range between 115-120kg. After having just about every Hobie and Stealth glass boat you can think of I recently bought a second hand Ocean Kayak Prowler 4.3 Ultra with a Lowrance 4X Elite Chirp,rudder, trolley, rack and roll and other bits and pieces thrown in for just over $1K on Gumt...

Re: NSWSCKF Fishing Comp this Sunday

Good turnout of about a dozen boats in the pre-dawn darkness at Wollongong Harbour. Cool WSW breeze was invigorating and just under the spectrum for making it too uncomfortable. Further you went out the bigger the chop became that wanted to assist you to travel to New Zealand. A beautiful sunrise sh...

Re: Sun glare on sounder - How to avoid it?

Agree with the guys with Garmins. I used to have a Lowrance and it was absolutely terrible with glare! Switched to a Garmin and couldn't be happier. I find they are easier to get the settings just right as well. Ditto to above and with all the others. Garmin the way to go in all aspects not just gl...

Re: my 13ft revolution

Stripped the Lowrance 4 Elite Chirp and transducer out of the second hand Ocean Kayak Prowler 4.3 Ultra I just bought and replaced it with a Garmin Striker Plus 4 which also conducts and records contour mapping of your favourite fishing ground. Much better unit, neater/thinner cables and all round e...

Re: Recommended First Fishing Kayak?

As an FYI I went for the Viking Profish 400. It seems like a good compromise to me for fishing and paddling. Will be taking it out this weekend for a first paddle. Cheers Good onya tojo007. The first boat is what you will always judge future ones against. Myself, have had everything from a Hobie AI...

Re: Burill Lake

Landed some nice sized duskies last Thursday mid-morning in the channel running down to the lake proper. Light gear comprising of a Shimano sienna FD 1000 reel and dropshot rod. Soft plastic with double trebles. Gold/brown worked best. Hard fishing with the incoming King Tide and lots of stink boats...

Re: My new blade

Cheers Mick, can't wait to get it on a wave. The only thing I'm going to have to be careful of is the rudder coming into shallow water. XD You will find that most non-Evolution Stealth owners have all experienced a bent rudder shaft on their first beach landing. Once bitten, twice shy :wink: Jump o...

Re: My new blade

Good blade the Epic Mid Wing, my second spare wing paddle :?: Use a Jantex clone from Australian Paddle Supplies for paddling my Fisha 500. Shaft is a bit more rigid than the Epic. My third paddle is a full blown Jantex Gamma Rio Large Wing. Don't use that for the Fisha as it costs nearly a third of...

Re: footstraps

There's another reason for footstraps on the Stealths and that is leg drive. Most Stealth fishing yaks are a more stable version of a surf ski. They were designed for surf launches, landings and to be fast, especially in ocean swells. They are very good for trolling (which i predominantly use mine f...
