Bloody Impressive Photo ....

But we 'dry land' fly guys still think you nuts to go out on those things. Term life policies must be a darn sight less expensive on the east coast.

Joev -

Looks like that yak purchase is really paying off for ya! You're getting your Nantucket Sleigh Rides alright

Have you tried the flyrod from it? Do you use it for transportation to shoals, islands, etc - or fish from the unit?

Juro I fish from it.Also use it to get to some spots and wade.Real easy to get on/off.Been on a tight budget so have not bought a flyrod yet.Soon I hope.A friend of mine that has the same yak sits sideways and throws a fly from it.Its a great yak.Fast and stable.

Thanks for the reply, I'd imagine it would be much easier to use the spin gear from inside the yak come to think of it.

Anyway, we might have a striper flyrod to pass on to you as a "learning loaner". All you have to do is promise you will learn to use it and pass it on to the next guy (or gal) when the time comes.

Interested?

Juro I would be intrested.
I am going to the Cape sometime July 22-26 Dont know exactly what days yet.I will be bringing the Yaks.Hopefully I will have another Tarpon by then.I will definatly have a Pungo for you to use if you want to try it out.You can also try out my Tarpon.I will be able to get out one morning for a few hours if you would like to hookup.Whats your schedule like?Anyday better for you?Also plan on hitting the beaches at night a couple of times.

Also would like to schedule a demo day for your guys on the board.I am helping out the guys on WWW.kayakfishingstuff.com.We could bring up a bunch of WS and Cobra yaks and the guys could try them out.We sell yaks naked or totally loaded for fishing.What do you think of that?

I saw an "In-Fisherman" TV episode once where a guy was catching a 200 lb sturgeon on the Colorado river out of a float tube. It was truly "bobber fishing". Except the fisherman was the bobber. I can only imagine what a 150 lb Tarpon out of a kayak would be like. You guys have some shiny brass ones thats for sure. Good on ya!!

They are much safer than you think.If you use your head and avoid situations you will be ok.

John I am hoping to get down to Florida and get some Tarpon soon.One guy I know got towed about 2 miles by one.Dont know if I would target a fish that big in a yak though.I think if ya did tire him out to that point it would not survive a release.

Joev:

2 miles on a Tarpon would be expected. The longest battle I've had to date started 6 miles back country side, went 3 miles ocean side, and then came back. We finished about 200 yards short of the channel bridge that we had crossed under about 45 minutes before. That would be roughly 12 miles. A 125+ pound Tarpon out of a kayak would be a hell ride. If you had a 40lb+ leader I'm not sure you could even apply enough pressure to break one off even if you wanted to. Take that kayak with you to the Keys Joe...........I'll alert the Cuban authorities that you'll be passing their shores being towed by a Tarpon.
