  1. Get yourself a Greenland paddle and take kayaking slowly if you have injury.
  2. Took me 10 minutes to land. I tried to stop with my thumb, bad idea, almost burn my thumb with mono line. Took a quick picture and release without measuring I'm guessing up to 40". The drum action early spring is the best I got both my kids pumped up reeling 25" to 28" black drum.
  3. If Fishingman rescind his offer again, I'll take that other one! Excellent reel, got mine tested over the week end out of the box and wanted another one. Thanks Mapluggin!
  4. Perhaps I'm one of those person. Thank you if that was you! I got offered bait by couple gentlemen one with a pickup truck and his wife the other with his Dad on a jeep wrangler. You guys are so generous! I'm not used to seeing folks with large cooler half filled with bait :). The first thing that came to my mind was to use it as a fertilizer. I'm so happy with the fish bites strips, a pack of frozen bunker, fleas and work my way up to the food chain :). Caught a bunch of blow fish, the nasty looking ones, a dogfish and a good size kingfish then left before low tide. There too much grass in the couple of holes I picked at short cast. I was in obx auto parts store parking lot trying to reload my car with Freon gas, the was car running when the wind blew my door shut leaving my cellphone inside. Since then a key in lanyard, and that habit of unlocking all doors and opening windows enough to reach the door locks works well for me.
  5. I am sorry to hear your experience. Is your order a specialized one that is build with carbon fiber materials? I do admire your patience though and waited that long. Like you I was eyeing that new scupper pro14 but saw kaskazi kayak online, gave my offer and got it. There are better boats out there so keep your eyes on other options. Thank you for sharing your experience/warning.
  6. I’ll take it $225 shipped to 20878.
  7. That'll slow down the bite down south a bit.
  8. If you are comfortable with overhead cast, try making that straight arm to be your pull arm and drop the push arm to your shoulder. That way you get that push and pull technique that Tommy was talking about. If that doesn’t help, add your knees and bend them both during power stroke. The idea is to use your body weight much like the fulcrum catapult.
  9. Happy belated birthday Tim!
  10. Im sorry but that is wrong. Here’s how to apply dielectric grease correctly.
  11. Matt, Im not the person on that video. That video was from utube to serve as a warning to the OP. That person is a hardcore kayak fisherman & he has my respect. Watching his previous uploads will give one prospecting kayakers not to do out in the open waters and even cold environment. Happy holidays to all!
  12. Ahh..I must be reading too fast. My apology.
  13. It’s not Riot, I have Riot Mako pedal kayak I bought from Amazon when it first came out, what you got from alibaba is called U-boat Kayak from China. Riot kayaks is from Canada.
  14. Indiegogo or kick start er are like the new marketing flatform. It provides more information for market viability of a new product. If more folks supported there’ll be more demand. Their sale analyst can then make a better informed decision as to how much they can go big. You don’t just mass produce and hoping all will sell. I would be more doubtful if the asking fund is around 100k or over. As far as Tim Niemier’s contribution to the project, looking at the foot brace may have come from his original sot kayak design. The retractable rudder has similarities to his concept scupper #2 where the rudder when retracted is buried on the hull. You can also design your own dream kayak and Tim will assist you.
