    Default Re: The Struggles of a Kayak Fisherman

    Yaks have their quirks but so does everything else. Every boat I've ever owned had it's advantages and disadvantages. Some are better suited to a particular fishing situation than others than others as well. You can pick a craft and stick with it like NDAngler does in his excellent videos, (That's his second Tarpon 120 in a row, btw. ) or you can be a boat slut like me and keep a dozen (or more ) around to mix and match to the plan of the day. I currently own float tubes, SOT yaks, SIK yaks, Canoes , a Hybrid Yak and a few tin boats. I like fishing from them all and am always looking for my next one.

    P.s.THe biggest drawback of kayaks is that they are allot harder than fly rods to slip past the wife! :-)

This 30 inch fish was clearly visible 15 feet away when I hooked it.

    Nice redfish!
