Had a rough season, injured my right leg, then my left leg trying to protect my right..................holy crap
Any way, my yak fishing really didn't take off until September, during huricane irene...................
Rented a cottage on TwinLakes, West Twin, it was perfect, dock 30' from my door step.
We had rain all but the last two days, but no thunder and lightening, so it was game on and the Bass were
All bass were caught with jig/pigs, chatter baits, and yum dingers.

A picture of our W300, and W500 wave walk kayaks dock side.
Lisa always chases pan fish, but she asked me to show her how to catch some Large Mouth Bass, and after a few how tooos
she caught her first ever LMB!
Then after a day time trip with nothing to show for it but short LMB, she was ready to call it quits, and made a final cast
with a yum dinger into the pads, she worked it slowly to the edge and let it drop.....BAM!!!
Next thing I know, she is going for a ride as the LMB towed her into the slop.
Now she totally understands what the last cast can do, she spent 3 more hours out there with a big smile on her face.
Life is Good!
Dang it I hit sbmit before I was done.
Since then I've ordered another W500 WaveWalk yak and have been rigging it up.
My W500 now has a motor mount for my 1.2hp gamefisher, which sits perfectly between the hulls, and the prop has plenty of clearence.
Took it to Rainbow Res in Ct for a few test runs and fishing.
The yak handled great, when I wasn't running to my go to spots, I was using the Paddle, and couldn't even tell the difference with the motor on the back.
Biggest Dace I've ever caught in my life!!
Then I took the W500 out on November 13th for it's rough water test......And It Was AWESOME!!!!!
Here is a video I made of the rough water test.
Winds were 15 to 25 mph, 60 degrees, water temp were 46 degrees.
Enjoy the video, wish I had put the motor on way before now.
