  1. I have a lightly used 2019 topwater PDL,helix 5 and c-tug cart for sale. The kayak was purchased from The Kayak center of RI a few months back. Only used in freshwater. I am looking to get $2000 for the package deal. Located in RI but willing to meet half way for a serious buyer.
  2. Folks, I am a newbie and this is my first post, so if it is in the wrong place please bear with me. I haven't fished for years, but caught the fishing bug again. I used to drag a lure behind a trailer-sized sailboat in Southern California, and whatever caught itself I was happy with. That is the extent of my expertise. I am 12 years new to MA but don't have the luxury of a sailboat, but do have a sit-in kayak equipped with two rod holders and a medium duty spinning rod. Would you kindly recommend places where I can take my kayak and do my beginner-like saltwater fishing here in MA, preferably where I don't have to pay $$$$$ for parking. I am in Canton, so Boston Harbor and places south are generally within range. My intent is to park the truck, dump out the kayak and just go. Can you help? Thank you all, Herman
  3. Used pair of older model Hullavators with mounting clamps for square bars only. Works fine- I just don’t need 3 pairs of them. Please visit Thule’s website to check vehicle compatibility. Personally, I would not use them on vehicles with naked roofs that you can add aftermarket rack mounts to, but only those that come with roof rails or fixed screw-in mounting positions since these are heavy and put a lot of stress on the racks during operation. $350 firm; meet in the Bronx, Westchester, Rockland and Putnam.
  4. Hi all, It looks like there are many people new to kayak fishing on this forum (myself included.). So I'd like to start an ongoing post for new or experienced people who'd like to partner up before heading on the water. Post your planned outing general area, dates, preferred group size and experience, and any other details you'd want to add. Please move to private messages to discuss specifics with your buddies. Ads for last minute outings are welcome too. Please edit your post if you've already buddied up.
  5. Looking to do some kayak back bay flounder fishing this year. I see quite a few hobie peddle kayaks doing it but not as many paddle. Is it a pain to bucktail out of a SOT paddle kayak? A lot of times the channels are narrow and feel that the paddle might be in my hands more than the rod
  6. For sale one unused unopened YakGear Ambush Camo Kayak Cover & Hunting Blind in RealTree Max5 camo pattern. Was going to do the kayak thing with my 12 foot Pungo this season, but ended up buying a BBSB and said screw it, why paddle when the BBSB can get to almost the same spots. It's not too late! Long Island Early Goose is open East until 9/30 and West opens on 10/13. Why not cash in on the mild weather and uneducated (somewhat) birds before they wise up. Duck are not far behind on 11/22. Its a universal fit with drawstrings at either end make for 12′ to 14′ kayaks, canoes and jon boats up to 38" wide. There are two flaps in the middle, connected by buckles, to conceal the hunter until you are ready to fire. Lay down and wait for your shot, then sit up and you’re ready to fire. Made of rip-stop material, tears should not be a problem if you run into any thick brush. Also has an oversized velcro flap in the back of the blind for access to the rear storage area. Boat handles are accessible at the front and back through slits that are pre-cut into the cover. You can also add your own brush on the cover using the pre-sewn vegetation webbing straps. Yak Gear is out of them and will not ship until late October 2018 if they come in. You can pick this one up on Long Island today. $175.00 FTF on Long Island including Queens. Other locations can be discussed. If shipping is required all costs are on the buyer. There are no bad days waterfowl hunting.

  10. What do you all recommend for big/tall guy for a stand up capable kayak that’s ocean worthy?
  11. Good Morning, I recently discovered this site and have been enjoying all the info as I get my new Ascend 10T set up. In addition to fishing I also have 5 recreational lobster traps and normally work them from a boat, but I'm wondering if anyone tends a few traps from a kayak? I'm thinking it cant be to hard to do where as one's center of gravity is low in a kayak but if it is I can always use the boat, just think it would be nice to check them while out there in the yak. Does anyone do this or am I being foolish.
  12. I gotta get rid of boats! This was my 1st whitewater kayak, I rigged it with a rodholder for fishing, and a skeg, a fin at the stern, for helping go straight when my kid was paddling it. It's 12' long and really light, like 30#. On the front deck I put an aluminum stud for mounting a fishfinder.
  13. Apologies first because I'm sure this exact same thread has been started a zillion times on this forum, but nevertheless I feel like this is the only place to ask the couple of dumb questions I'm sure everyone has about buying a kayak. 1. At north of $3k all in (looking hard at the Hobie Outback), for the boat, propulsion, rigging, fish finder, roof rack, and probably a couple of new rods - is it worth it? Do you connect with more fish than you did from shore? Do you only fish from the kayak now? 2. Night fishing, seems pretty scary to me to go out after dark, but I see dudes doing it. I'm sure just like anything else with the right safety precautions it's manageable, but from the sidelines it looks terrifying. I'd like to hear your thoughts, do you fish at night? how do you rig the boat? and what kind of weather criteria do you look for? 3. If I want to target stripers offshore in the fall, I absolutely need a dry suit, right? Thanks.
  14. Two very nice kayaks. Minimal use. Always garaged. Includes paddle and life jacket. Can be seen in North Wildwood NJ. Asking $750 for the Tarpon and $850 for the Prowler.

  16. Hey guys. Getting out in the kayak for the first time in the ocean. Want to take it mostly inshore, harbors or around different rock piles close by (think Salem, Marblehea, Beverly area. I have a 13’ SOT). I am planning on fishing for stripers: 1. lures 1-4oz probably (thought I might be higher om that . Could always gi lighter if that’s what’s suggested). 2.Spinning gear 3. Plugs, plastics, swimmers, jigs, ect... 4. Occasional bait if I can manage it on the same rod. I have a few surf rods I can use for that if desperate. 5. Looking for rod/reel combo <$250 I’m open to any an all suggestions. I was thinking 7’ with maybe a 4000-5000 reel size, but I really have no clue what’s necessary, what’s small, and what’s overkill. Have kayak fished for LMB’s for years. Looking for a set up that can be reliable, handle the cows, won’t kill my arm from casting all day, and won’t break the bank.....aka needle in a haystack! Thanks for any and all help. Looking to up my sleigh ride game!
  17. For sale are two used surf kayaks and one paddle. The kayaks are in storage so the images are stock photos. The colors are correct. Will pull out of storage for serious buyers. Located in Queens, NY. Both are in very good shape with no cracks or dents. Always took care on the sand launch and landings so the bottoms have minimal scratching. The first is a classic hard to find Competition Kayak ck 4.4 (14’ – 6”) with surf-to-summit seat with cup holders and paddle leash. Single removable skeg, surfs like a long board. $400.00 The second is a Danny Broadhurst designed Cobra Strike (9’ – 7”) with Cobra Backband Seat and Leg Straps. Fast enough to catch most waves, sticks like glue to wave faces. Braces rock solid. Very maneuverable. $425.00 Also, a feathered DB Designs surf paddle. I will pull it out tonight to check the size and hand and will update the post. $125.00 Complete Big and Small Wave Surf Kayak Package $900.00 Cash only.
  18. So long story short I’m in a bind between the two solo skift and pedal driven Hobie kayak with all the bells and whistles after all said and done price will be around the same give and take couple hundreds of question is does anybody have any recommendations or have experience using the solo skift etc....any input would be greatly appreciated it
  19. I'm 15, should i get a 12" tracker jon boat and a 6-7 hp outboard or a kayak for long island sound fishing? I like the idea of bringing others out on the boat and have fun/playing music etc. kayak is half the price, yet slower with only room for one, and even fishing kayaks seem awkward to fish from too me. No budget for a Hobie.
  20. Bought this 2016 new last season as a left over instead of the 2017 model, due to concerns over 180 drive on the 17's. Purchased from Sturgis Boat Works. This does not have the 180 drive. Boat is great shape and has lots of extras. It does have some drag marks on the bottom at the nose, all superficial. Stored lofted in garage on PVC rack as Hobie recommends. $2,500.00 OBO. Would be open to trade for a newer outboard 50-90hp. Please note GPS/Fishfinder is not going with the kayak. The only reason I’m selling is because I bought a boat. boat is located in centerville on cape cod. 2016 Hobie Pro Angler 14 Mirage drive with turbo fins BerleyPro Lowrance total imaging scan transducer mount/ Gavmin side view scan mount for under hull Boonedox Landing Gear Nocqua 10ah pro power kit 3 gang switch panel with 2 USB ports & volt meter Lighted extendable Stern Light Cockpit LED lighting white and red Pvc rocket launchers- removeable Hobie paddle Hobie paddle holder 2nd Rear Seat, no hole Pics are horrible, I will try to get better pics up soon.

  23. Got out for a couple hours between working. Had a couple nice fish on a Yo-Zuri Hydoo Minnow then they just wound’t feed after the sky cleared and moon popped out. Water was 62 degrees on ththe incoming too. Won’t be able to get back on the water till Sun, and looks like bad weather. Snagged some big bunker by accident also.

  25. This year I switched over from my 2013 Pro Angler 14 to a Wilderness Systems Radar 135. I was looking for a kayak that would be easier to handle and transport on roof racks. I was also looking for something that could better handle surf launches. First trip will be Wed night for some Striped Bass, looking forward to a good 2018 season.
