  1. Does anyone know a system that would work with a mirage outback and a Honda civics roof? Thanks
  2. Hi y’all I’m trying to get into some saltwater kayak fishing. I currently don't own a fishing kayak, so any tips on purchasing an ideal one would be a great help whether it should be used or new or paddle or peddle. I am mainly going to be fishing in the Narragansett bay, and in rivers and estuaries. I have mainly been fishing from boat and land and this would be the first time I start up the hobby of fishing from kayak. The fish that I’m gonna be targeting will be striped bass, bluefish, fluke(summer flounder), tataug(blackfish), black sea bass, and scup(porgy). The types of fishing methods that I plan on using will be casting plugs and lures, chunking, trolling tube and worm and umbrella rigs, and bottom fishing. I mainly already have all the rods reels and tackle equipment, but extra tips on certain setups that would be ideal for kayak would be great help. I have a 2012 Ford Fusion sedan so transporting it would definitely needs some planning. Do you guys have any tips of a beginner set up that would work good for me. Mainly looking to spend relatively cheap but not too expensive, anywhere between $500-$1500. Also, what extra equipment would you recommend such as a fish-finder/depth finder, anchor, transporting equipment, and any other extra helpful accessories. Thanks
  3. Hey Everyone, Just seeing if there was anyone in lower Rhode Island area that would maybe like connect. Just picked up my first Hobie kayak to get my feet off the shore. Looking to possibly locate others to get out there and fish with.

  7. In a bit of a pickle determining which boat to buy was hoping to get some help from the forum. The 08 in contention looks like its in really good condition for its age. I can get it for 1000 and I know that if nothing catastrophic happens ill easily be able to get my money out of it in a few years when I go to upgrade.... Thing is I know these boats are known for cracking at the drive and leaking. On top of that, the owner used a scupper cart which creates another weak point. I could instead get a leftover 2015 Revolution 11 for about $1900 after tax. At least I would have the peace of mind owning a new boat and having a warranty, but this would really be a stretch in my budget. Id love to get your opinions on what you think I should do. the length doesn't really make a difference to me as im 165. This will be my first Hobie

  9. 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.
  10. For sale is a brand new Yakima sweet roll. It is a great rooftop mounted boat loader and rack combined. Equips a set of rollers to assist you in easily loading and securing a kayak or canoe to the roof of your car. I bought it and opened it, but has never been used as I ended up buying a rack for my truck. Listed online for $239, willing to part with it for $150. Located in Philly, willing to travel to meet within reason.
  11. Just wondering if there are any other kayak fishing clubs on Long Island? I’d really like to join one. Always nice to have company and share information with others. I know about KFA. Are there any others?
  12. I just moved up to the RI area a few months ago from NYC, and was wondering what some of the late season / winter kayak saltwater fishing options are in this neck of the woods? Looking at some charts of the RI coastline, it looks like there are some rocks/ledges/structure within 2 miles of shore with depths getting to the 80 ft range and beyond. Of course I'll need ideal conditions to get out there, but wondering how late in the year I can catch tautog, possibly BSB, and cod in these areas. Also wondering about catching mackerel and herring off the yak in and around the bay. I'm sure I'll poke around some areas in the upper bay looking for some holdover stripers, but my question is geared more towards non-stripers.
  13. im just north of Boston and im trying to catch my first tog and hopefully some more keepers. i went fishing off the jetty yesterday past the lighthouse at Scituate to mess around and lost every jig i put out there on the rocks lol. i only had blue crabs at the time that i was cutting in half. * now im trying to head out with my hobie and maybe cover some structure and rocks north of the lighthouse. as long as the weather is nice i can fish anywhere from the plum islands to the cape if anyone wants to meet up and fish. im busy in the evenings so itll be first light to about noon. the crabs will last about 5 days he said so they'll be good until thur/fri.

Lists for about 3k delivered from overseas. One short season use. *
  15. To all the tog experts, when you have unlimited rocky structure (such as along the the northern coastlines of the LIS - Rye, Mamaroneck, Stamford, etc.), how do you narrow down good areas to target for quality tog? I mainly fish from a kayak so I have the option to search within a couple mile radius of where I launch from, but there's so much good structure everywhere along the LIS that it's sometimes difficult to find productive pieces. I understand that there is no substitute for just getting out there and trying all the fishy areas, but I want to get a bit smarter about my approach at narrowing down these areas. I'm not asking for specific spots, but do you look for areas with some current? Prefer to fish just submerged rocks or next to a rock outcropping that is breaking the surface? The end of rocky jetties? My question really pertains more to rocky structures rather than fishing along wooden pilings, bridges, etc.
  16. Been looking to start kayak fishing and read an article that the Hobie Mirage Pro wasn’t suitable for the rough seas. Anyone know why? What should I be looking for if I want the most stable kayak I can find? Does width of the kayak not play a major role in stability? Is it the high center of gravity that makes it less suitable for rough seas? I would have expected the Mirage Pro to be more stable than most alternatives. *

  19. 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.
  20. Can anyone tell me where the Mashnee flats are? They are not marked on any maps or charts I can find. North? South, East or West of Mashnee Island. Thanks
  21. I was wondering if you need to register a kayak, small boat or even an inflatable boat if you put on a trolling motor in NJ? I know you don't need a license, but do you need to register the boat? In VA it is required to register anything with a motor, even a trolling motor. I figure my Intex Seahawk 500 would do well trolling around the back bays.
  22. Feel Free Moken 12.5 fishing kayak with “wheel in the keel”. I’ve had this stored in a bag for the past year. It has a lot of accessories. Fish finder (Lowrance Hook 4)set up with side mounted transducer, paddle, anchor trolley system, rod holders, flag with light, seat. I’m moving and need to get rid of it ASAP. $500 in the Westchester NY area. Also including the Yakima car rack.

  24. 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
  25. 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.
