What a better way to start this off! Show your ride! My yak the day I got it and my first bass on it!
Show Your Ride!
Hi Fetch. Rutabaga is a good place to start. If you have time, they host Canoecopia in early spring. Nearly all manufacturers are there and you can sit in tons of kayaks. There are so many to choose from.
I personally like Jackson Kayaks, and they make a few 'Realtree Camo' versions. I think one is the Cuda and the other the Kilroy.
And here is a pic of me on my Cuda 12. We also have a Coosa, a Kilroy DT, and two other big box kayaks. Our favorite thing to do is kayak camp, and we're leaving tonight to hit up the north fork of the Flambeau river for 4 days.
Yeah, that's the downside to my Revo - nowhere to really put fish. I do know a guy who runs a fish bag in his tankwell behind him. But I'm a junky - I like to bring about 5-6 rods out with me and a ton of baits. If I wanted to go the fish bag route, I'd have to lose the crate. Maybe something I'll think about in the future.
But to answer your question, yes, I stringer my fish. Usually run one each side. The Lindy Heart of Steel stringer is what I use cuz it slides through the teeth and gills. It gets to be a real pain one you have about 3 or 4 kings on the stringer.
New to kayaks, looking for one primarily to fly fish from but also possibly jump shoot ducks on creeks, rivers. Like the idea of a foot paddle propelled boat. Any suggestions or places to try before you buy? I'm considering going to Ruttabagas to check out a few......
