Kayak Angler / Re: Looking for a kayak any suggestions
« Last post by MantaRay14 on Today at 11:13:01 am »
The current issue of Kayak Angler magazine has a rundown on about 30 or 40 different fishing kayaks so there's a lot of research you can do quickly. I just got my issue in the mail so this issue should be in stores now. I've had a Hobie Outback for about 10 years now and give it full marks but they're pretty pricey now. A couple of years ago I almost pulled the trigger on a Pelican Catch 120 as a paddling option for dragging into back lakes, etc. but didn't. I liked it though and it seems like a good price compared to what we pay for kayaks manufactured in the US. Most of the canoe/kayak retailers have a "try it out on the water" day sometime around this time of year. Try before you buy is a good principle to follow. Good luck and maybe you'll end up with the same kayak fishing addiction that many others of us have.


Yep, they had try it on the water days in K-Bay all the time, but that was in the old world. The new world, well that's anyone's guess as to whether or not stuff like that ever makes a full comeback.

Totally agree with you!  Same thing happened with me watching salmon videos

Was watching fishing shows on YouTube this morning when one of his perch fishing videos showed up in the recommended list.

That sure was a tragedy, I never got to meet him but enjoyed his posts and vids. Gone much, much too young.

Ohhh some good eating there. I've only ever had one shore lunch with fresh walleye when I was younger, but I remember how good it was to this day.

I would suggest that a new set of spark plugs would be the first step?
An outboard that vintage should get new plugs annually.
Speaking from experience here.

Non residents do pay taxes there young fella. Parking and launch fees are tax revenues.  ;D

Iím very happy with my Old Town Predator pdl. Getting older, I donít peddle much in it, but added a bracket that slides into the rod holders to add an electric. I picked up a 100 Ah lithium so can go out for the day on the lake and never worry about battery power. Nice and stable. Same deal though. Pricey but great quality, just like the hobies.

I also have an Old Town predator (non-pedal) and have added a bracket to hold my trolling motor.  It's amazing, I absolutely love it.  With a 45lb motor I can hit 7mph, which is more than enough to get from A-B.  It's no issue with weight having the battery and the motor behind me, and is still very stable.

Masks for general public are not there to protect the wearer.  They are there to protect everyone else in case the wearer is infectious but doesn't know / care and is still in public.  In this case the mask reduces the amount of virus in the air significantly.

Health authorities don't talk about that too much because people are too selfish to think about others so nobody would wear one if they don't think it protects them.


Properly adjusted, put on and discarded N95 do protect the wearer but clearly the general public doesn't have the discipline or training or knowledge to take advantage of that.  Half the people I talk to think covid is a government scam meant to curtail their freedoms.  Sadly people out there are really fricken stupid and it's getting worse every year.  Product of facebook education, reality tv and whole segments of population who never learned to critically assess information.
