First fishing kayak
 
1 Attachment(s)
Got got my first fishing kayak and can't wait to get fishing in it. What I've done so far is I got a flyrod holder and laid a thick rubber mat down for stealth. I'm going to get an anchor wizard for it but im not sure what location on the yak to put it. If anyone has suggestions on that matter I'd like to hear about it and you reasoning behind it. I'd appreciate it.

What kind of kayak is that?

It's a shadow caster from Field and stream.

I am looking into getting my first kayak also. I don't have a very large budget which makes it tough researching different models. I'm 6' and about 235lbs, I was looking for something in the 10' range with a weight capacity 275lbs - 300+lbs. So far i looked at the Lifetime Tamarack and Sun Dolphin, the weight capacity on the Sun Dolphin is only 250lbs, and the Lifetime is 275lbs.

Nice lookin yak there seekeroftyngmat!!

I have an Ocean Malibu XL2 Angler. It's around 13' and weighs 61 lbs. It's a tandem & can be paddled solo or tandem. I mainly use solo but like the feature of taking an xtra person by just moving seat. Has a weight capacity of 450-500 lbs. I mainly used for crabbing. Very stable in any freshwater application plus handles bay chop very well. Going on it's 9th year & love it! I see Ocean Kayak is still manufacturing the Malibu XL2.

the kayak that I have has capacity of 450lbs and I think the leg room will be good for you as well. look at Dicks sporting goods
