Re: Stealth fishing kayaks for overweight paddler

The Stealth Fisha 500 has a paddler weight capacity of 140kg and total weight of 200kg. Don't think your extra 2kg will make any difference to performance. Great boat to paddle and is also surprisingly fast and very stable. Use mine mainly for trolling but have also used it in tidal estuaries chasin...

Re: Can you High Brace a SOT Kayak

The Paddle Guy is a very good exponent of bracing into and through the surf zone in his Viking fishing yak. Have done this on my old Pro Fisha 575 but haven't done it on my Fisha 500. As laneends says, the average kayak fisho doesn't have the required kayaking skills to do it. After a number of deca...

Re: Can you High Brace a SOT Kayak

If you ever put, or find yourself in the position of contemplating doing a high brace in a SOT, you are already very wet and are going to get a lot wetter. :oops: Low brace in marginal conditions is not a problem. Do it myself on my Stealth Fisha in rough conditions with no issue at all in a swell h...

Re: Pro Angler Flipping, Righting and Re-entry

Saw some footage once (YouTube) of someone remounting a PA14 from the back and pulling themselves forward. Mind you that was in pretty calm water. Middle Harbour is a total pain. Not only from the wash of passing boat traffic but if you are near Middle Head in any swell coming in through the heads >...

Re: Fishing up a Sea Kayak (Picture Heavy)

True that - at least compared to the surf ski setups like the Stealths. The flip over rudders can solve the shallow water issue, but more finicky and not as good as the Mirage IMO. That Mirage rudder is signature of their line of boats - a great design and a factor in my deciding to stick with that...

Re: Fishing up a Sea Kayak (Picture Heavy)

Have a Mirage 580 that I also fish out of. Not quite set up to your extent, but when I am paddling in an estuary or river I sometimes have a Slingshot / Sienna 2500FE combo and small landing net in my spare paddle britches (hard tube). My large mesh bag forward of the cockpit stores a small tackle k...

Re: First kayak kings

Off Wollongong yesterday morning. Local ski paddlers said there was a lot of surface action a couple of kms out between Towaradgi and Flagstaff Points off Wollongong. One in the know said they looked like Kingies hitting a huge school of bait fish. So, off I go in my Stealth Fisha 500. Half an hour ...

Re: Which STEALTH for me?

What's the buzz with the Stealth's and glass kayaks in general? Is it mostly because they are faster through the water or are there other reasons? Personal choice in a lot of respects. Yes, they are faster which makes them perfect for trolling. Very stable once you get used to them or extremely sta...

Re: Which STEALTH for me?

Due to work commitments and the weather, I have only been able to take my new Stealth Fisha 500 out twice since I bought it four weeks ago. But, for all round excitement when you are paddling away and the next thing your overhead reel starts that "clack, clack, clack" sound as something hits your lu...

Re: Mirage Sea Kayaks Sit-on-top

That shouldn't happen from what you described. I'd send some photos straight to Mirage and see what the offer. Totally agree with NorthSIKer. Mirage are very good with following up with stuff like this. Unless you had a massive load on board this should not happen. What build is this...fibreglass, ...

Thanks Dennis.

Now if only the weather and work Gods will stop conspiring against me, I might try to get out for a fish this weekend! :grr:

Re: First Fish in the Fisha, PB snapper & club record

Well done mate. Yet to blood the new Fisha 500 I got a week Saturday. Hope I get the same result as you have. Cracking fish! Had a little thing called the Hawkesbury Canoe Classic to do on Saturday night / Sunday morning (111km kayak race). Now that's done and dusted, just got to wait for the bliste...

Back To Glass

After a few years of being Hobie Centric (Outback, AI and Revo) I have gone back to my roots and Back To Glass. Picked up my new Stealth Fisha 500 from the freight depot in Prestons (Sydney) on Saturday morning after a great effort by Dennis at Kayak Specialists in Yatala (Qld) to despatch it on Thu...
