Hello From Texas

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! My name is Colin I live in Mount Pleasant, TX. Which is just an hour south of Dallas. I enjoy to fish however I mostly bank fish due to the lack of a boat. I have been fishing my enitre life so for 22 years! My father and I enjoy going to Lake Fork several times to enjoy a day of fishing. I have attached a picture of a nice bass I cought on a local pond.post-51145-0-88052900-1415323871_thumb.jpost-51145-0-70695800-1415323882_thumb.j

Actually, the name's Darren :smiley: Kayak Fishing 

is how I fish.

 

I have a Native Ultimate 12, rigged out with a Minn Kota 

trolling motor, steering controlled via feet.

 

Kayak fishing is a blast, and well worth the time and effort 

especially if you don't have $$ for a boat (neither do I). 

 

Do a quick search here and you'll find a LOT of info from 

all us kayak fisherfolk. There are a lot of us on the forum.

 

As well, we're all more than happy to help if you have any 

questions. There's a great kayak group down in Austin, 

their site is ack.com - Austin Kayak.

You bet, Colin. I mentioned ACK since you're "not that far" and 

could take advantage of when they have demo days. You can 

get some quality time actually trying out different kayaks to find 

the one that most fits your style.

 

That's really the best way to do things. We all have different brand 

affinities which does you no good because you are the only one 

who can decide what is right for you.

That is true. I have been to Bass Pro, Dicks Sporting Goods, and many other places to test out what I like. Just gotta find that magical ONE haha

I did that as well. In fact, my starter yak was from a big-box

store. It wasn't until I did research and actually visited a 

kayak store, talked with the seasoned fishermen/women 

there and got some sit-in time that I discovered what was 

the right fit for me.

 

Unfortunately, I did not get to do a demo days, my sit-in time

was doing so in the store, in the models they had on the floor.

 

Demo days are great because you get on-the-water time in

a bunch of different yaks. Very cool stuff. I still think I would 

have ended up with the Native Ultimate, even so.
