Haliburton Report

Recommended Posts

Fished quite a bit this weeked in the Yak. 3 Different lakes over 3 days. Action was pretty decent. Here are the pics. The big largie is a PB and came in at 4 lb 13 oz and 20". Caught on a bronzeye in the pads in the evening. The smallmouth were all caught on buzzbaits and drop shots. It was a great weekend. Sorry for weird angles of the pics.

how tippy are those kayaks. i was thinking of getting one as the 80lb canoe is getting a little heavy for this cat. just wondering about the sturdiness of it cuz that looks like a lot of gear that you wouldnt want to lose

Wilderness Systems Tarpon 120. 12 feet long and I think it weighs close to 65 pounds. So its pretty heavy actually. Its less tippier than a sit in kayak because the hull is a little wider. Lots of ways to sit...you can straddle it, turn 90 degrees and sit with your feet in the water, etc. The wilderness systems family of yaks has a few sit on tops also that you can stand and fish in and are surprisingly stable, like the commander and the ride. I don't use anchors so I am not worried about tipping and losing my gear. If I was anchoring, I would attach lanyards to all my rods and keep my tackle in an enclosed bag in the stern under a bungee. Fish Finder is mounted using a product called the Sideboard and TDA by a company called Mad Frog Gear . They make products specifically for the Slide Trax system that are standard on all Wilderness Kayaks. Goes on and off easily for transport too.
