Those are sweet. I think most people on here have nice rods and reels and hoof it around the lake. \:D/ :lol:

I currently have my bass boat up for sale :crying: Used to tx fish a lot, but just dont have the time for it anymore. Figured this would give me a good opportunity to fish places I could not access with a normal boat.

You'll have a lot of fun in that kayak. Nice and light for dragging to difficult to access spots, and should handle any type of fishing you want to do. I also rarely use my boat anymore, unless I'm fishing a tourney. Fun fishing is a blast out of the kayak, and soooo much cheaper! Adding a rudder is a really nice addition to the shorter kayaks, they don't always track straight. I'd also recommend adding a rod holder near the seat to put the rod in while unhooking fish.

I have a Tarpon 100 that I got back in the spring for under $400 shipped! Brand new, discontinued previous season color. It's a great little kayak and compliments the Old Town Predator MX that I have as well.

Congrats! Been fishing out of a Wildy ride135 for the last 3 years. Love it, and not sure I can go back to shore fishing. Just fish it as is before doing any permanent mods. Lots of stuff out there and on a kayak, less is more. Let me know if you got any questions.
