First Fishing trip out in the new ‘Stealth’ 13/10/2012

Managed a trip out today on the new Yak and gave it a thorough test launching and landing in some big powerful surf very pleased with how it performs also got to test the anchor trolley out and it sat quite well at anchor a bit noisy but expected with the shape of the stern slapping against the chop need to fit a cleat to lock it off as it did creep slowly which would have led to becoming side on to the tide but this can be easily rectified






Fish were plentiful but mainly small flatfish and whiting but I did hook and then loose a decent Thornback Ray gutted would have been nice to christen the yak with a good Thornie but never mind maybe next time









The kayak has grown on me a lot now I have managed to sort out the foot pedal position and paddles faster than I have given it credit for and up to now handles the rough stuff very well
