Default Thank You Stripers247 for this new forum!

We appreciate 247 for creating this forum. My name is Jeff Lopez and have been chasing Stripers in and around Boston Harbor for many years. I found the kayak two years ago while on a trip to Cancun Mexico. I saw a couple of locals who fished out of the kayak every morning from my window in the hotel. Being a curious person that I am I went down to the launching point when they landed, although my spanish is bad for being half mexican and half irish, the red snapper and wahoo that were in their yaks was enough to communicate. I knew when I got back to the states that this was it. I did some research and on the net when I got back and found a few websites and forums to attain information and aks questions. I noticed a large base in New Jersey, New York, Florida and California. I got suggestions on what to buy and I went to a local store to buy my first. I have been hooked ever since. I have fished all over New England all the way down to trips to Florida. I have found a freedom in the kayak.


The kayak gives us the ability of stealth. You get to places that others cannot. Nothing is more fun then having a large bass give you a tow! I hope that this forum can help others with education and safety in this sport.

Thank you

Thanks JB for setting this up. We hope to get you all here converted to a kayak or to the "dark side" if you will. We must say that the dark side is strong! :twisted:

If we kept all the fish we would have a wharehouse full of keeper size bass. I have kept three fish all year to feed neighbors and make new friends. I have kept a 31lber, 35lber, 41lber. I am all set for the rest of the year unless I can top the 41lber. Not bragging just enjoying fishing off the kayak.

I caught a 6 lb largie from a kayak at my lakehouse, on 12 lb test, so I had no drag set, that fish pulled me around all day. That was fun!

The reason why I have 12 pound test is in case I hook into one of the 2 foot pickerals.

A 6lb larry is a nice bass. Even better on the kayak.

Jeff is always looking for another place to post his pixs, the only problem the rest of us have, is coming to work and seeing Jeff's mug holding another cow every other day. Rid, I am glad to see that aviator pix, as I still laugh thinking about taking that shot and seeing the wave coming through the view finder.

Default Kayakers

You guys got me really intriqued by these kayaks, Seems like I'd be nuts not to add it too my arsenal. :twisted: A question but first background.
I have a canoe with battery and trolling motor but its a b__ ch to transport.

I have an off road extend cab short bed frontier. Currently shopping around for a small versatile boat like an 18 foot pontoon.
Now I'd like to add a kayak. (I know I have a lot to learn about them) I know nada.

A light decently made kayak that I can transport easily with the pickup.
Budget lets say 500 to 1000.

Possible?
