Got my Bass Yak

#1 Post by Manny82 » Mon Oct 20, 2014 11:04 am

Dragged out my brothers in law old SIK. Cleaned out all the spiders and will see if I can get a rod holder for that front mount. Should do the job for smaller creeks.

Looks the goods.

I am tossing up between one like that or a small SOT one as my second basher for the thin water... Leaning towards a SOT one like a 2 Monks or similar.

I've got a 2monks Pads, holds my 115kg frame well enough. I'll upgrade one day but as a bass basher I'm happy with it.

Damn you! Here I was trying to save a buck and being perfectly content, and then you show me something better and now I want it! :lol:

But in all seriousness it looks the goods. a 182kg limit would be good for my 120kg bone dry self. One thing I do worry about with the closed in yaks is tipping over (getting stuck upside down?), and or getting back in to it on the water. That is just a perception I have which is probably borne of ignorance on the subject, so happy to be corrected!

Which one do you have fishpilot? The 3m Congar or the 3.6m Dace Fishing yak?

I've got the Conger, in yellow and green as it was $30 cheaper. The guy from 2monks actually suggested that over the Dace I was thinking of getting, easier to lift and carry and would do the job in bass waters for me.

There is still an old sot behind the house as well but pretty sure it got a hole. Maybe I will drag it out next week. And check it out
