Bought this bad boy for some bass and pollock fishing round our local coasts, can't wait to get the thing out for a day at bass with fly rod. Will be next year now though (if we are not still in lockdown that is!!)

Thats a bad boy :)
A hole for a rod one side and another hole the other side obviously for a beer :LOL:
Just make sure you know what you are doing with tides wind etc. The sea can be an unforgiving place
Will be extremely careful for sure, no heroics from me(y) no beer at sea either, not in a one piece dry suit anyway?

I like the idea of a kayak but rekon i would be a big sacredy cat when it came time to take it out in the sea
They look like awesome bits of kit and i wonder if any of the larger trout fisheries like blagdon, keilder etc allow them on ?

What model is it tadpole, mine is a 2019 model, also have an electric motor with mine as well as the mirage drive, so 3 forms of propulsion if you include the paddles(y)

That’s a nice yak, I’ve just been looking in the garage at mine, I’ve got to get one of them back on the water next year
Yak fishing is all new to me Karl, so next year is my first. I take it you have more than one then?

Mine is an Outback 2019 model, bought it with the trailer and electric drive unit, it turns on a sixpence using the electric motor positioned where the mirage drive sits. What are you doing for the electric drive?

Thought it was a pro angler the trailer threw me can see now its the new outback looks great lot more toys, You should get a good runtime with them two batteries also very handy that you have reverse with the flick of a button some great reviews on youtube about the outback.

Yes, the batteries will do a whole long day no problem seemingly, it really is a great set up with the motor and having reverse at flick of buton is brilliant for sure, let me know how you get on with your motor(y)
