I had to comment on your rig . . . Nice set up!  I love the simplicity, the look, the fishability.  Your dad did a great job, btw.  I've owned a 10 ft john, a 12 ft john, a 15 ft sport runabout, and a 21 ft Triton.  I also owned a canoe.  The most fun I had was with the john's and the canoe.
thank you sir! Ive already had many great days out on the canoe so far. Thanks for the compliments to my father,  he took it above and beyond ( I tried putting him to work making more so I could sell but he declined haha ). the small csnoe is the most fun especially when landing a large fish!! Enjoy it out there.

I just picked this up last weekend. Humble beginnings, but it's my first boat and I'm pretty happy with it so far. Thinking of adding a plywood floor so I can install a better seating arrangement.

David, I would imagine it would give you substantially more stability when standing as well?  Humble beginnings as they may be, but you're ahead of me in the boat game!

Hey guys!  New to the forum.  I fish pretty much exclusively from a yak down in south LA.  I have a Native Slayer 14.5 and love it!


I've put a few fish in it, but it's just barely broken in since I got it this summer.

From the Atchafalaya Basin in Henderson, LA.



From Lake D'Arbonne in Farmerville, LA

The last shot with the pads got my heart racing. 14.5? That's cool. Just one thing would worry me just a little down there... Don't you have gators down there close to the same size of your yak?? -Jim

Yes.  But trust me, they don't really bother anyone.  They will get aggressive if you disturb their nest.  But I do try to avoid them.  Usually when I see them I just keep my distance.

Nice rigs, here are a couple of mine, my Boston Whaler:



No, it is not for bass fishing but it has caught a lot of salt water fish and I use it for diving as well as just burning hydrocarbons for a warmer and brighter future. Equipped with dive ladder, Humminbird SS, VHF, ELT.

Here is my latest kayak, an Emotion Stealth 10. I love the little thing, caught several nice bass on TR lake on it's first outing:



I will soon add the usual GoPro mounts and some sort of depth finder. It has three Scotty mounts and two flush mounts, anchor trolley.

My rig is the reason I got into bass fishing.  Made a few modifications, mainly the seat, tŰ make it better for fishing.  Plan on getting a feelfree lure 11.5 before spring rolls around again. Current rig is a Perception Tribe  9.5. Lots of fun.

was looking at the lifetime kayak but ended up getting this sea eagle stealth stalker since i can deflate and store in my apartment easier, as well as a similar price to the lifetime kayak.. i think i got the basic accessories down(rod holders, anchor(used a 5lb and 3 lb plate on a chain with rope) and fish finde(the garmin striker 4 portable kit) dry bag

My newest rig. New to me at least. Just traded my last kayak for this one last week and I love it. Wilderness Systems Commander 120. I can sit low, sit high on captains perch, stand and fish no problem, I can even lay down and relax and Iím 6í3Ē.  I put my Lowrance on it and I made front and rear storage area covers to help with water entry from waves and paddling. 3 rods, everything else tucked away. I am searching out more backwaters and like to keep things simple.

Here's my gheenoe I got in November.  It came pretty basic, the trailer, boat, motor, trolling motor.

I've since added quite a bit of stuff to make it suited for me.  I'm currently finishing them up and will post pics of the finished rig when it is done.

One of the biggest mods I did to it was add power.  I put a battery in one of the two compartments.  I also wired in a switch for what I added; nav lights, auto-bilge pump, interior lights, usb charger, and a fish finder.

Non-electric items I've added are the front cap, which includes a trolling motor plug, a quick release for the trolling motor, and a cleat.  A grab bar and anchor pin have also been added to it.

I'm waiting for the ram mount to mount the fish finder to the grab bar, that should be here tomorrow, to clean and tidy everything up.  Once it all get cleaned and put away, I'll post pics of the finished project.
