Where you located, and what are you paddling?

Discussion in 'Canoes & Kayaks' started by Rooster, Jun 28, 2005.

  1. I’m in the Cincinnati area, and fish from a kayak.

    Just curious which members fish from a kayak or canoe, and where they are located. I’m always looking for a float partner, and I suspect that there are a few others out there looking for the same.

    Thanks to the OGF staff for giving us paddlers a home!

  4. Hilliard, OH
    I have a late 60s early 70s Grumman 16.5ft Aluminum canoe and a Nautiraid foldable kayak with sail.

    I usually go alone to lakes. I need a second driver to do creeks and rivers.

    I have a 11ft Perception Sierra. I fish Paint Creek and Rocky Fork Creek in Southern OH. Ross and Highland Counties. My brother-in-law Lives in Winton Woods down there Rooster. He needs someone to show him around. He has a 13ft Perception Yak. He goes to the lake by his house there and comes home to Chillicothe to fish with me sometimes.
  6. I have an old aluminum canoe that is about 17 feet long. I got it from my parents who bought it from mohican state park for 30 bucks when they changed to using the fiberglass canoes. Works for me. I use it in the scioto around dublin and in alum.

    i have an aluminum michi-craft made by meyers and just started canoeing the tusc. am going with action sat to the walhonding and maybe in july to the kokosing. one of these days maybe we can have a canoe/kayak fishing get together. have floated the grand river but that was 25 years ago. also the mohican but that was years ago too.
  8. My kayak is scheduled to be shipped June 30 and I'm pacing the floor waiting. I live in Eastern Ohio about 20 miles north of the big river. I'll be fishing MWCD lakes, Highlandtown, Guilford and a couple of clubs I belong to that have lakes.

    My original fishing kayak was a Folbot that I built from a kit.

    I have 2 old ones I picked up at the Hartville flea market for $25 each in '91 and '92. One has a small slit on the bottom from dragging it through the woods all those years.

    I don't need to tell you guys this but I had the best fishing out of those kayaks compared to a boat. The places you can get to with them are great.
    haven't taken them out in awhile since the state has been giving me grief over the "homemade" catagory on the registration and won't renew the registration.
    I have no idea what brand they are.

    sevenx "I sat by the river" N.Mc

    Ifish out of a bucks bag pontoon. Its a great set up for both lakes and rivers. I fish the lmr and some tribs and local lakes and farm ponds. The nice thing with these rigs is they break down and will fit in the trunk.
  12. I live in Lewis Center north of Columbus. Fish out of a red 14ft Mohawk fiberglass canoe circa 1980..

    I can usually be found out on Alum Creek during the week, stay away from it on the weekends lol.

    I fish a 16 Foot 1983 Canoe, It came with 3 Stabliizer bars, 5 Life Jackets, 3 Are the real good thin ones, & 4 Paddles. I got it at a yard sale for $40. I had to kick out the Dent in the Bottom of it, It was a big one, But I got 99% of it out & Lost over 14- Rivets. SO I plan to put some new ones in it & Ping the rest of them & then seal it from front to back, Inside & outisde & all Ribs. It will work just fine for me, I use it in the Hocking River, In SE Ohio.

    On the Lake I use a 14 ft. Sea Nymph, Vry wide V-Bottom. Its a great boat.
