    Here are some pics of my new fishing kayak. It is a Heritage angler, 9.5 ft. 37lbs. It has two stationary rod holders and one adjustable rod holder, adjustable seat and foot rest. It also has a pulley anchor system. I got to try one out on the river before i purchased mine. It is extremely stable and tracks very well for a short yak. I wont get to take it fishing for kittys till next week, ill let you know how i do. Ive got to figure out a way to mount my camera tripod, if any one has any ideas let me know, thanks!!

    I can see it now splitshot. You are gonna get out there, get a rod in each of the rear facing holders, and then get a bite from a monster on BOTH of them at the same time. Then on up the river you will go. LMAO:smile2:

    Great lookin yak there!

    I always wanted to try fishing from a kayak like that. That sure looks like a sweet setup. I bet it's a whole different kind of experience fighting a fish at that level!

    Will that thing stay put in a current, or do you need to anchor it somehow.

    Looks like fun. Can't wait to see some pictures of you landing some nice cats.

    I have the 12' heritage. Ireally love it in the creeks around here. what i really like is drop out 4 or 5 jugs then head to the shade, in this hot weather.
    then if ireally get hot just take a dip in creek. The bad part is on a good day there is no time to sit in shade.

    Tomato and oinon, extra cheese, hold the lettuce. Maybe a side of tater salad and a pickle---ohh could you possibly throw in a slice of apple pie. Better make it ta go----:go: ughhh, perhaps a pair of size 32 skivies------just in case, i prefer boxer shorts, Wal-Mart has some really nice-----oh never mind!!! Maybe a box of depends would be more practical--could be a long ride. Just dont tell anyone okay Buddy? :0a13:

    I have been thinking about getting a 12 foot heritage fishing kayak. I am 6' 2" and weigh about 250 so need a little bigger boat. Anybody out there with an opinion on the heritage fishing series ??

    I would suggest that you look at the 12 ft. Heritage redfish, the 9.5 footer would definately be too small!! They all come with adjustable foot rests and seats. If you go back in this thread Jeremiad owns one and could give you all the info you need.
