New Kayak Owners???

I know there are a few of you who purchased a kayak late in the season and were unable to join in with the "Yak Rats" as yet......maybe we could hear from a few of you (you know who you are??) who may be thinking of joining us this upcoming season!!!!

Ok Ill go first.
Im not brand new to kayak fishing. I have done freshwater kayaking fishing before.
But I will be new to kayaking in the salt.
Missed most of the season becuase
I was in Iraq. And got into surf fishing after I got back.
I got a hobie over the winter and cant wait to get it out there.
Looking forward to doing some mods to it during the winter.
Look forward to meeting any of the yak rats I dont know.
Hopefully Ill see you out there.

P.s. I am on the yak rats fb page.

I still feel new because I missed the spring and started late... went on 4 outings with Yak Rats ..Great group and safety in numbers .. Like when I rolled in the mouth of the North River 1st time out ..Nice to have another Yak Rat come to my rescue and roll also ... good times .. It was all down hill from there . Hi Greg ..

I am not new to kayak fishing, but have never had the chance to get out with you "Rats". Looking forward to fishing with some new south shore guys, both fresh and salt. Soon to be retired, so will have plenty of time.

Larry,

I have had a kayak for a few years, and still pretty much a newbie.. I usually go out on my own ( not that often) It would be great to try some new places, and meet up with some of the guys for the "yak scrambles"

Bossman is so beyond stoopidly busy this time of year. In fact only kayak happening for me right now is to send a rectangular piece of paper to BigBo.

It's never going to get here. I think we will be launching through the snow in July.

WHICH YAK TO BUY?

I posted about the Ascend 10, but as yet have not bought a YAK. I had a Heritage 12, but sold it a couple of years ago due to bulging discs. I am 90% recovered now and thinking of buying another YAK. Mostly light use in the bay or a river or lake.

Let's here some suggestions form the experienced guys.
Thanks

Jersey Jim

Looking to get out with you guys this year. Bought an OK 15 last year and got out just a few times. Life seems to get in the way sometimes. Can’t wait for the spring Blues on the cape to “bring back that fishing feeling”!
