Hobie Maiden Voyage!!!

Un-B-Leivable!!! Amazing!! Worth every penny I paid for it!!! First time out today (after it has been sitting in my yard for almost 3 weeks while I worked on our bathroom) took it to a favorite freshwater pond and it was everything I hoped it would be!!! Wind in my face and a slight chop and it went through it effortlessly! Stability is amazing in the Pro Angler, just amazing! Yes I did catch my first Kayak fish....it was a pickeral on one of my1 oz. Rainbow Trout "Prey" swimmers......had a nice smash from a bass too!! I was so busy prowling the pond I found myself almost forgetting to fish!!! Can't wait to hit the saltwater in it!! Sorry no pics.....I was by myself so nobody to take em'!!!

Almost time to get our fish on!!!

I love my outback and I'm sure now that you let the family try it, you will have to share it because everyone I let try mine has loved it as well. Those new ones are awesome and worth every penny.

BTW, have you tried to paddle it? I was wondering how they paddle because you never know when you may need to.

Best of luck Larry.

I'm very jealous, Larry! Went fishing in a kayak for the first time with my gf's cousin a few weeks ago and the wind was blowing so hard it made it a pain while there was a hobie running circles around the bay
