Stealth / Re: In Hatch Tackle Bucket For Stealth Kayaks
« on: September 26, 2021, 04:50:28 PM »
How am I going to get blood and fish slime all over everything?

I love the fish hatch on the Stealth but mine turns into a total mess by the end of a successful day on the water. Iíve been able to organize most of my tackle in the pockets of my PFD, but water, snacks, hat sunglasses, and other odds and ends end up at the bottom of the hatch.

Looks like a great time. Nice squid and fish combo, Loebs.

Nice work. Did it fall for your homemade flasher?

imagine hooking 12 feisty macks on a sanddab rig....that sounds like a complete pain in the ass  :smt005
Yeah, what could go wrong trying to deal with that on a kayak? I have found that a large enough weight will keep everything vertical and avoid tangles. Hopefully Iíll get to test this theory on the mackerel someday.

After seeing three of my friends catching a total of 500 mackerel last weekend from a boat, I had to try it for myself. My good friend Thuy took me and my cousin out on his 15 foot aluminum boat out of SC. The bite was pretty consistent from 630-1000 am from right outside of the harbor to the pier. Per Thuy, mackerel were not stacked like last weekend and they were scattered. We were constantly on the move and got most of the fish by trolling. In total, three of us caught 268 jack mackerel and 6 pacific mackerel.

Nice haul. What is the preferred method of trolling? I have thought about attaching a 1 pound weight and a flasher to a sand dab rig (12 hooks!), but kind of a moot point since I havenít gotten to fish areas with them this year.

Safety First / Re: Rescued a flipped kayak at HMB today 9/18

It felt good. The hull of the 475 slaps more than Iíd like when paddling into chop, and the seat depression stays full of water from the waves, but it never felt unstable.

Thanks for running rescue duty. I was out on my paddle kayak near 1S and conditions got a little sloppy but not worse than expected.

I guess a big advantage of a PWC is that if you get rolled by a breaker you can just get back on. All the closures make it a nonstarter for me though. If you had $10k - $20k to spend on a vessel that has to be launched from a ramp, it seems like a no-frills center console with positive buoyancy and big scuppers would be a better fishing platform.

Thanks for the report, Eric. Awesome as always.

Stealth / Re: New Stealth Fusion

Thanks for the review. Trolling from a paddle kayak is definitely more challenging. As you observed you canít eat or drink while doing it, and more care is required to avoid tangles while lowering your gear. I also miss being able to hold the rod in my hands and keep the bait just off the bottom while trolling for halibut.

One thing Iíve noticed on the stealth is that my back handles things fine if I am paddling, but when mooching it is hard to avoid hunching or slumping and my back does not like that.

That looks good. The rocket launcher rod holders are a nice touch.

In addition to what others have said, when I was using a pedal kayak I realized that even when I was pushing with my right leg my left foot was still gently pressing against the pedal, so my feet never got a break from the pressure. Try consciously un-weighting the inactive foot on each pedal stroke, at least once in a while.
