Hey guys some of you may be getting tired of hearing me yak about kayaking but they really are ideal for a lot of the small water we have around here. After Keith mentioned he would need to find a big Kayak I thought I would pass along a little info in case anyone was really interested in looking into buying one. One of the most popular fishing models out there has a weight capacity of 600 lbs. Heck Keith and I both could fish out of it. The new sit-on-top style boats are very stable. Anyone who has only been in a canoe or one of the old narrow sit-in style kayaks would be amazed. I took mine to the lake 2 weeks ago and turned it over several times on purpose just to see what it would take and how easy it was to get back in. I stood up, sat side saddle and rocked the heck out of it before I turned it over. It only took me seconds to turn it back over and crawl back onboard. I was impressed. As I was loading up a guy that had just pulled a big fancy ski boat out of the water came over and was looking at my rig. He was talking about how much it was costing him to run his boat and that he needed something like mine. He said the only problem was that he would have no room for his wife and kids. I brought up the point that I could buy everyone in my family and his family a yak of their own for less than what he paid for his boat. He got kind of a funny look and said good point. Anyway here are a few good links I have found. The Malibu X-factor is one the most popular big-man-boats out there. http://www.malibukayaks.com/kayaks.asp Lots of good info here. Check out the forums. They have a Midwest forum and a forum specific to the separate brands of yaks. http://www.kayakfishingstuff.com Go to youtube and search kayak fishing. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NVtHTUAXfLs http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R8ABLGu1ppw http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Ee4gpelPnQ Anyone who wants more info or needs help let me know. RUSH_60 (Casey) is also a hard core Yak fisherman and I am sure he would be glad to help.
