  1. If your a striped bass fisherman a Hobie is the way to go. If you get anything else you most likely be selling it and trying to get a Hobie. But get something cheaper and try it out. Anything that gets you on the water will work. Just make sure that wherever you buy that Slayer from will give you a good deal when you trade it in for a Hobie.

  2. When I started as a beginner my first yak was a PA so don't be scared to get the yak you want right out the gate. IMO if you like fishing and it seems like you do then your going to love kayak fishing. You get the best of both worlds. It allows you to fish all the spots your currently surf fishing and it allows you to get out where the boats go. The reason I got into yak fishing was because I was sick of being on the surf and the fish busting right out of my casting range. One day I saw a dude paddle into the middle of the fish and hammer them for hours and I was sold on the idea of a kayak.

     If you want to get a outback I suggest that you do it because if you don't your gonna regret it! There's no reason getting something that your really not going to want in a few months. I'm sure you will love the Outback but if for some reason you don't I'm sure you wont have any problems selling it.

    Good luck with your buy and if you have any questions or concerns don't hesitate to send me a PM!

  3. @TJC My setup in this video is a 7ft med hvy TFO with a Revo sx reel. Its a very light setup for tog fishing but I was just having some fun and even though I was around some heavy structure I knew I would be able to land most fish unless I hooked into a pig. The jig I was using was a tog tamer. The weight of it is 1 1/2 oz. This setup is spooled with 20lb test power pro slick. It's the setup I would use for porgy fishing from the kayak.

  4. You don't want nothing too bright. You'll scare the fish away like that and you also mess up your vision. I'm new to night fishing from the yak but I learned a few things fast and one is to keep you light as dem as possible because if you don't it messes with your night vision. The light is for other boats to see you not to improve your vision of things at night. Your best tool for night fishing is gonna be your GPS. All you gotta do is follow your lines. If you have GPS on your FF then your golden. You'll even notice that you will need to turn your light on your FF down while night fishing.

  5. Fishing for Tog in the yak is the thing to do. I do real well fishing for them. You able to get right up into  the rocks and get them. Its real good when the fall season first opens because the fish like to be in shallow water and you can really get some monsters. Here's one of my videos from last fall. I have a few on my youtube channel that you can check out.
