Been a while since any my kayak is best threads LOL We had some doozies a few years back. So I can only guess everyone is happy paddling in what they got then?

Any rumors about anyone bringing out new models? Viking? Keep thinking on "upgrading" the 400 and all I find myself doing is head scratching on a different livebait system.

Yeah looked at them eh. If you knew how many times I have had Kingies circle around under the kayak and bump it on the way up you would see how pedals would get in the way. Plus you have to steer with your hand and hanging onto a King and trying to steer with your hands has no appeal to me.

Plus the fact is a kayak is arm powered. 

But they would be handy staying over a school of snapper.

Trolling, vertical jigging, wash fishing. Would be awesome!

True, that is the downside, plus another couple of thousand for a trailer. Wouldn’t want to car top one of those beasts. If I got back in to kayak fishing, I’d want one though 😀

Saw the Hobie's today quite interesting crafts.

They catch my eye more than the Stealth.

And saw the pedal Old Town two days ago, a bloody big kayak.
