    So I just bought a new kayak after I couldnt repair the freebie I was given some time ago- and I cannot wait to get it wet and chase some EP/Bass and bream from it around the local creek.

    Supoer stoked - next item on the list will be a leccy motor for when I cannot use those tired arms (from casting of course) :p

    Here is a piccie- I will pick it up next week hopefully and be on the water by mid July

    Yeah for sure Kev as soon as I can get it in the water I will be out chasing some Bream and Bass/EP's on lures around the creek and flatties around the flats :)

    Looks like a pretty unit for your needs. Good luck when you get it on the water. Cheers, Lyall.

    That should fill the gap nicely looks a real sleek stealth craft for the shallows.
    I saw one similar to yours and did it move even going in to a slight breeze it was very impressive.

    Nice looking rig, Anthony.

    I like them short kayaks for getting in around logs and snags, easy to manoeuvre in skinny water. I bought a basic Glide Mahi from bcf a while back, 10 cms shorter than your yak and I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to paddle being a shorty - a bit slower than a longer craft, but gets me into spots where I want to be.

    Nice rig Jeff, do you reckon the loud colours scare off the fish or it doesnt matter?
    I did try to get the same yak in blue but camo was the only colour left ...

    Thanks for the replies lads, I will be picking up the beast next Tuesday and should have it on the water next weekend with any luck... Now to get a PFD and some stickers for it then get it pimped - YEW!

    I don't think the bright, loud colours spook the fish all that much, if at all. The last yak I had was white/blue and I could berley fish right up to the side of it. Sure, some species might be easily spooked by anything out of their environmental comfort zone, but generally most fish don't give a damn. I guess it all depends on what you target.
