TAC what kayak are you using? I used to use a Hobie Quest, and really enjoyed it, but at that time I was fishing fresh water also and had a huge gator that got a little to close ( I think he was after my stringer ) so I sold the kayak and got a Gheenoe. Now that I am exclusively fishing salt I was thinking about another kayak.

It is very nice, I need to find more time to get out on the water. I'll see if I can dig up some pictures.

Native Watercraft Ultimate 14.5 solo, VERY comfy, and stable.

I also have a Wilderness Tarpon 120, and my son has a Tarpon 160i.

We both bought Tarpon 120's 2 years ago, I bought the Ultimate last summer, and my son traded his 120 for the 160i.

I haven't been back in my Tarpon 120 since I got the Ultimate, I like it that much.

2. first day in kayak, took me a while to get the hang of it.
3. my mother and one of her bigger reds that day.

What is a Gheenoe?

Hobie's are very nice yaks, was yours peddle drive?

I hear ya on the gators, I haven't ever had one come after my stringer, but it does cross my mind.

Last summer we launched one Sat. at 5am, the guy that was in front had a large gator splash water on him. That's to close, it was still dark so he didn't see the gator until he was right up on it.

A Gheenoe is like a canoe on steroids. They are made in Titusville Fl Depending on the model you can run 25hp outboards on them. They are impossible to tip, and you can stand up and walk around in them. I'll have to find some photos.

I've got an older model 13' and love it. I use a 40 lb thrust trolling motor with dual battery set-up, GPS/Depth Finder, baitwell, and 8 rod holders.
I am wanting to add a small outboard, nothing to heavy as I sometimes load where there aren't any boat ramps.

No I didn't have the pedal drive on the Hobie, although I wanted it.

Looks like a good boat.

I know a guy that has a 12' Ultimate like mine, he put a trolling motor on it. He said next time we go to the flats together he will tow me out and back.

I have thought about putting a trolling motor on mine, I may on day. If I do then I will need to register it.

I enjoy paddling, and I SURE need the exercise.

They are nice I really enjoy mine.

That was the one thing I didn't like about the kayak, a lot of times where I wanted to fish was a long way out and back. I have been towed a few times in the kayak.
