what type of kayaks do you use? I'm new to this idea but it sound fun, since I like fishing and the outdoors.

this is probably a dumb question but what types of water do you use it? Im in southern missouri and I don't know if this a real popular thing here. So I don't know where I would go.

I got the kayak that I was looking at for freshwater lakes:
http://www.emotionkayaks.com/HTML/Kayaks/Mojo_ang.htm

Tried it out today for about 30 minutes on a small pond and landed a 3+lb bass trolling with a 6' deep Rapala Fat Rap lure. Now I am excited to get out on some bigger lakes, but I think I will stick with the small ones a couple of more times to work out any "kinks" I have with my set up.

Congrats on the new purchase. Make sure that you're always wearing a PFD and practice getting back on your yak when you turtle...and you will.

Good advice. The lake temps are in the mid to upper 40's now. So I guess I will wait until the lakes warm up so I can practice getting back on before I start going on the larger lakes. Trying to find decent Fish finder, what are you guys using? I wore my PFD today so I could get used to it and I was really surprised that the only thing that bothered me while wearing it was where it was hitting the backrest on my seat. Other then that I didn't even notice it.

Today I used a 10' 3/4" pvc stick to shore up in shallow areas, inserted through the scupper. That worked great, I am going to get a anchor here shortly as well. I think I have a place for everything that is easy to get to. I am installing a Humminbird 565 later this week. So when you install the transducer you ARE? able to mount it inside the Yak and glue it to the bottom? Or is it better to mount in the scupper?

Look at hooking up the anchor via a trolley.

Yes, the transducer is installed on the bottom-inside of the yak. Also, be sure to look at the Lowrange X50 fish finder. It has a kit for installation on yaks, plus, it gives a wider range in shallow water.
