  1. Gents, i am looking for some help here. I have been researching for a new pedal drive and have finally narrowed things down to the Hobie revolution. I am eyeing up the 11' and 13', partly for ease of fitting it into the back of a pickup. A friend of mine has the 13 and had stated that I should stay with the 13, because it is more stable in the water than the 11. He claims it will also perform better in the wind and current. I tried his 13 and was very impressed with it. I have yet to try the 11. There is only a slight difference in width and of course the 2 feet in length. At this time, his claims just don't register with me very well. FWIW, I have one of the propel drives and after trying the hobie, I like it much better. Anyone here have any experience with both?
  2. Hello all, Im new to the forum, and kayak fishing the salt and i am considering purchasing the Caribbean 14 Angler. If you will, I am seeking some opinions about BTB with the Caribbean 14 Angler. According to the write up, it is designed for the the surf and open water. Just wondering if anyone here has used it for that purpose. I have demoed the Caribbean and like the 50 pound weight and the way it tracks and glides. My son and I even broke the surf with it. It was a blast doing so. Any replies are well appreciated.
  3. Was wondering what size bass everyone prefers to keep. I am trying to look into the science behind it and personal preference. I will also say I am an avid conversationalist but every few seasons I will keep a fish or two to enjoy the great meat. I know people say the bigger the fish is the quality lacks. But I personally aim to keep 30''-36''. Most of the fish I keep are gut hooked or when I cannot revive them. The science side of it is for the breeding. I know the big ones can reproduce a significant amount more than smaller fish. Interested in everyone's thoughts. If you keep your catch what is the target size to not hinder the species growth.
  4. whats going on fishing folks! wanted to get the opinion of the experienced here and ask about the boxcars. I don't mind the style of them and the low cut design seems to give a bit more freedom of movement. I haven't bought them yet because I'm concerned about the possibility of sand gettting in the boot a lot easier than a high top. Im sure sand creeps in regardless of what shoe you wear if your pounding the surf hard but because of the low cut design I would imagine the gravel guards won't be as effective with these shoes. also, in the colder months your ankle would be slightly exposed resulting in freezing cold ankles... just random thoughts i have had regarding these, let me know what you folks think, or if you have them yourselves did you like them? pros/cons....thanks!
  5. As modern fishermen, there is a plethora of gear available for us to purchase. However, most of us have limited funds which makes us cautious about the things we buy. We often scour through forums to find evidence justifying our purchases and to acquire information about products that interest us. Although there is certainly great advice to be found, I see many responses that lack any real evidence or logic behind them. People often respond "I heard that that rod is terrible", or that it "doesn't hold up", but they fail to offer any real evidence. Many of them might have experience with these products, but just don't mention the specifics, they just give their opinion. Other times, I feel the reviews of a few people propagate, spreading to become a collective opinion that's not evidenced by reality. Almost like a Pyramid scheme, where a leader recruits a bunch of followers based on empty promises. The point of all this is that while have a great resource available to us, the quality of the information that we give determines the quality that we get. This is of course a community where people have fun and converse casually, but it is also a reference where a lot people look for advice. In conclusion, I urge you to think about your responses, try to provide as much sound information as possible and think about the context in which they will be read. Make evidenced and clear remarks about products or don't put them up at all. It will make this site a better place for all of us to learn and reference when we need to and it will cut out all the bull s*** people looking for answers have to read through. This site rules! I am not trying to rain on anyone's parade. I just think some posts could be a little more refined. Opinions anyone? Anyone buy something that people said would suck and love it? The opposite?
