I have one that I'm not really using much since I got my wheel eze. It's in really good shape. I can check it out and let you know what kind it is if you like.

Atta boy! Welcome to the club!

I've got a Lifetime Tamarack Angler. It's a decent entry level yak for someone younger than me! I'm 5'7" and about 190#. I wouldn't recommend it for someone that's bigger/taller. I added stabilizers because it was so damn rolly/tippy. It's also slow and doesn't track straight for anything. That all being said, I've caught some really nice fish and take it out on the Monterey Bay. Might be okay for lake use though.

All you have to do is tie it off to your kayak. Don't tie it to your line. That's just going to scatter all of your scent and chum. If you tie it to your yak, the bait will come to you and stick around. I've done this several times will good success for the smelt!

HAHAHAHAHA.....oh you'll never be done buying stuff for the 'yak Jen!!! :smt005 :smt005

That's why I have the neon flag on my ride. As far as strobes go, one thing to keep in mind is that it's also a distress beacon. The greater the height of your light/flag, the better the visibility to other vessels.

Another way to tell is the scales. Yelloweye have smaller scales that are stacked really close together. Juveniles are usually a bright red with a bright white stripe down the side. Very "clean" looking fish. The scales look rough also.

I kinda went off the deep end myself a few years ago, picking up vintage reels. I'd love to display them, but I don't really have the space. I may just have to follow in your footsteps Allen!

« on: September 08, 2022, 04:34:08 PM »
Freeze it as soon as you can. Preferably vacuum sealed! Treat it like any other fish that you put in the fridge. If it starts to turn pink, I'll freeze it and put it in the trash. Once the color starts to turn, it gets REALLY gross quickly!

Perhaps soaking it in a Salt-away solution might help...

C'mon man...I built a boat from scratch, remember? I can fabricate a lot of stuff! The challenge will be to keep everything light and portable, yet sturdy enough to do the job...

we fish for salmon on kayaks -- ain't nothing too crazy for us ;)

Ain't that the truth!!! :smt044

I hadn't thought about the squeeze bottle before. That's a great idea! I know guys that used to use a small tapered pipette. Just slip it into the aforementioned artery that runs along the spine!
