Finally fished from yak

Discussion in 'Canoes & Kayaks' started by Star1pup, Aug 7, 2005.

  1. I finally got a chance to try out my Heritage Featherlite Angler and it was a ball! I fished a club lake and caught and released some bass. One towed the little 9.5' kayak around the lake. It was a lot of fun. :D
  2. I've been looking to get a kayak but I've heard that it's hard to keep those under 10 feet straight when you want to just stop and fish. How did yours perform?

  3. I was going to get me a yak up until I heard about and seen what a kick boat is, now I want a kick boat.
  4. What is a kick boat?
  5. This is a kick boat They are also called pontoon boats. They range in price from around $200 to a few grand. The one in the link is the one I am aiming towards getting for next season. You can add a trolling motor, rod holders, livewell, ect. ect. Here is the main page for kick boats
  6. Anything that is light and sits on top of the water will be moved by a slight breeze. I had an 18' two place Folbot and it would move in the wind, but not as much as this one.

    It all depends on what you want to do. I bought the smaller boat because I wanted to fish places that I could not get a bigger boat into. I also wanted it to be light as I will be 68 in a couple weeks. When i was younger, I could have handled a larger kayak. I also wanted it to fit in the back of my short bed pickup and it does with the tailgate up and the hatch tied down.

    I had no problem, but it did drift a bit when I tried still fishing with a bobber. Of course my 18' pontoon boat also drifts with a wind and even swings around if I anchor it.
