First run of the new kayak was a complete success. I was able to mount and dismount without incident. The pedals took some fiddling to find the right distance for my legs but once they were locked in, I was flying. The speed really is incredible with the fin drive. Fishing was a breeze. It’s a stable platform for casting, plenty of room for storing the rod when landing a fish or changing lures out. I installed a rod holder to the side board and that was very handy. Did some trolling but apparently I need to try a different lake for lake trout. The one complaint I have is that the rudder is very touchy. When peddling hard, you constantly adjust the rudder to keep on track. I think there’s a way to adjust the sensitivity, so I’ll be looking into that. Need to finish installing the rest of the gear too. Have a gps holder and fish finder yet to be installed. Good times.
Oh, and the fish tally for tonight’s adventure: 1 Bass! Boojah!
