    I'm 6'3" and 220 lbs... for now. :).

    I'm tempted to get higher in my seat to avoid getting wet butt. However, the trident ultra 4.3 already has you sitting a little higher due to the mold of...

    Kayak seat recommendations

    As you can see in my sig, I own an Ocean Kayak Trident Ultra 4.3.

    Can anyone recommend an amazing seat for me? My back and butt ache after 3-4 hours in the seat that came with it. Money isn't...

    Rust resistant knife?

    Tired of my good knives getting rusty. I usually wash them after fishing in the brackish water but occasionally I forget and they get rust on them. Can anyone recommend a knife that you've owned that...

    A nutsert? I'm curious but afraid if I asked it would put me at the wrong end of a joke. ;)

    Main thing I want to do is put gear tracks behind me. The two flush mount rod holders are too close to my elbows when I paddle. I would also like to eventually put a mount for a go pro cam to take...

    Pop rivets vs bolts and nuts

    Have any of you had experience using pop rivets when attaching gear like geartrac or other accessories that might have to take stress such as rod holders, safety flags, etc?

    I'm wondering if they...

    Just to be clear, you're talking about removing your seat and putting a small cooler in its place, right?

    If so, my main concerns would be stability, as you mentioned, and back support. If your...
  9. 7 miles of paddle trolling and one measly bite

    Can't complain. It was a nice day on the bay. But I've never put in that much work and gotten skunked. I was in Herrington Harbor.

    John,

    I have virtually the same kayak. If you paddle while the trolling motor is running how fast do you go? I have a few spots that I'd like to hit that simply take me too long to paddle to...

    Haha, I've lost a few like that! When it's a really nice fish, I keep the hook in the fishes mouth until I measure and/or put it on the stringer if I plan on keeping it. That way if the fish gets...

    Thanks for the info. I've done a fair amount of research now and it seems like the Torqueedo is the way to go. It defeats the purpose if your throwing a 40 lb battery into your kayak only to go the...
  14. How fast does your trolling motor get you going?

    I'm thinking about getting a trolling motor for my Trident Ultra 4.3. It's a fairly large yak (14'). I love to paddle, but the reality is that it really limits the territory that I can fish. If I...

    I will say that this is the hardest strike I've ever had with the pole in my hand. Not the hardest I've ever had while fishing. That prize goes to a fish this March. I was trolling an X-RAP 8 in...

    "Football stripers" is an apt term for the fish I caught. Short but powerful. Like a fullback. Probably weighed more than a lot of keepers.

    Yes, that speed is a standard for stripers. People bump it up to 4 mph for Spanish and Blues. I do okay with around 2.5 mph on some days. I think Alan references it in his book that you don't have...
  18. 19" Striper scores hardest strike I've ever had

    I was retrieving a Rapala XR10 near some sunken structure and BAM! My first thought was a really big bluefish. Shortly after the strike I felt the telltale quick head pops of a smaller striper and...

    Any bluefish in mid-bay yet?

    I'm a big fan of these fish. My wife makes a mean blue cake which is essentially a crab cake with bluefish meat in them. My buddy also has a cold smoker and has really been itching to smoke some...

    iPhone 7 mount for kayak

    I know. It sounds terrible. Why would you want to bring your phone with you on your peaceful fishing trip? Well, the truth is, I don't! I'd much rather leave it in the car or better yet at home....

    Hawg vs CNR - Round 2

    Trolling a paddle tail and a 4" diving plug (Windcheater Bomber). CNR hits diver and pulls me around for a half mile or so. Went to pull in the paddle tail and it was snagged on the ray as well.
