  1. I would also suggest to go to a store and play with both devices. UI (user interface) is different from one device to another and you could find something you like better or dislike at all.
  2. Do you know how much your kayak weight? are you comfortable to put in on the roof? After I bought my kayak I realized I barely can put in on my vehicle's roof - I went with large and heavy yak and note, my car is not as tall as CRV. So, after one trip with a kayak on the roof, I realized I need a trailer, found one on CL, installed a tow bar on the car and off I go. It's not that portable solution comparing to rooftopping but I can live with it.
  3. Just last weekend I started rushing myself and forgot a wallet with leaders in the car. Realized that when got almost to the destination and had to pedal back. I'm not rushing next time.
  4. I transport my Predator on a trailer. If I do the distance, I rig at the launch site. If local (under 5 miles or so and no highway driving) - I do it home.
  5. I wear progressive and went with 7" touch screen unit and very happy with both size and performance in a wet environment. Haven't been fishing in the rain yet to see how it would work. For my phone, I use insulated pouch/bag/container made of clear flexible plastic tethered to the pfd vest. Picture quality is not affected in most of the cases and the touch screen is responsive too.
  6. Pardon my ignorance buy why it's important to mention that fish is "loaded with lice"? I've seen this more than a few times. Thank you
  7. I've got nothing to bring home past Sunday. Had one small bsb and couple "sea robin of shame" as someone called in kayak next to me. I was using bucktails with curly tails and glass minnow teaser with swimming mullet, then switched to vertical metal jigs. Guys not far from me were pulling fish constantly before I left and I think they were using some live bait, crabs or something. I tried to troll on my way to shore and got either schoolie or blues in 15' range but failed to bring it in.
  8. Not to derail the conversation but do you have any issues with seaweed clogging the jet? I looked into purchasing Yamaha jet CC boat and I lot of comments were negative, most saying, oh you gonna be cleaning clogged unit all day long, etc. But again, it was a boating forum, not fishing or jet owners dedicated forum. And another question, so you have CC and still fishing kayak too? I fish on a kayak and was thinking to buy a boat as a replacement, no like substitute... My thinking was I wold be fishing and could bring fam on water too..
  9. Does it come with a trailer? if yes please describe it. Is bottom painted? Is there trim tabs? Thx
  10. What are the boat/trailer total weight and tongue weight? I wonder if I could pull it with my station wagon. Thanks
  11. I don't want to throw another stone into this poor soul, but his PFD doesn's look like a proper (adult) size.
  12. Riddler beat me today Just watched as someone launched... Dang, I wanna boat...
  13. I have no personal experience with cutting yaks, but I'm not sure if using the epoxy would be a good idea. It's stiff and I'm sure yak flexes under load and temperature changes. Don't think epoxy would survive long
  14. Another successful " what can you do with a raspberry pi 3" project ...
  15. I wrote a phone number on my VHF.
