re: Post Your Yak Setup

Is that one of the peddle kayaks? If so, how do you steer?

There's a knob to the right or left of the seat that controls the rudder.

My sneak boat, which really isn't a kayak because it has a motor...




This boat has caught a shite ton of fish.

Got my rammount in and put the depth finder up. Next, I have the rammount transducer arm coming in today.

Thanks to DownSouthDave for helping me find the right gear!

I bought a Lowrance Elite 4 and still haven't decided where I want to mount it. Which is code for I probably should start and get that all sorted out soon.

I eventually want to get the 4x HDI. But by the time I'm ready to upgrade, there may be all kinds of new stuff on the market.

Glad to help. Looks good.
I think I saw where academy had the elite 5 HDI on sale for the same price as the 4. And it came with a navionocs card. Which is about an $80 value. Not sure if that's still the case though.

re: Post Your Yak Setup
I got the Elite 4 DSI because it has pretty good reviews and I really wanted something with GPS capabilities. Not that I foresee it happening but I have an irrational fear of getting turned around in the marsh or loosing track of where I am. Plus I wanted to be able to mark areas/spots and have something that could give directions to waypoints.

Not an irrational feat at all. Everything looks the same when you're sitting that low to the water.

Got the transducer mount set up. That thing is a solid aluminum rod and was a bitch to bend into shape.

re: Post Your Yak Setup
Alright, I think I'm about to bite the bullet and purchase a yak or a paddle board.

What are y'all's recs? The budget is up to 1k...

I'm starting to fly fish more and more and looking for something I can stand up in for view and casting leverage. However, it'd be nice to have something sit down in.

Also, I live very close to lots of fairly good freshwater fishing but prefer saltwater.
Do more saltwater than anything else out at Chandy Islands and the marsh down in Pointe a la hache and fourchon (or at least looking to get into marsh fishing in fourchon).

What do you say?

Edit: right now, thinking strongly about kc kayak...ability to stand and sit.
I was also recommended an amigo from diablo.
