Landbased until I get into a boat, cheers davo
It's an exhilarating feeling catching a fish
But it's an even better feeling releasing them

Land, but I hardly ever let the boat opportunity pass by :-)

If you fish closed waters that aren’t too far to travel over water there is seriously no better fishing craft imo. I own one and absolutely love it. But has some limitations regarding where it can be used
Hi mate. What brand do you have? I don't know anyone who has one so am not sure which is a good one or not. Could you get an OK one for a few hundred bucks or do you need to spend a bit more? Hate to buy a rubbish one and waste my money for the sake of waiting and saving a bit more.
Would appreciate any info at all on them.

This is mine and it’s absolutely awesome.

I use a pair of smaller swim style fins. A mate uses snorkelling style fins. He is faster but my fins don’t smash your ankles up.

They are the best snag fishing vessel you can buy imo. Including slayers/other yaks with reverse. As soon as you hook up you can really put the hurt on the fish by kicking back at the same time as pumping and winding.

Here’s one of the fish I pulled out of a very snaggy waterway. We bought the tubes specifically to fish this location. Was one of the best investments I made at around $265 delivered.
Great, thanks for that info, really appreciate it mate. Like the photo too :-D
:a_goodjob: Definitely getting one.

I have a boat but love finding a good bank to fish off. :thumbsup:
Water is the most essential element of life, because without water you can’t go fishing. :water:

Exclusively land-based fishing for me, almost exclusively freshwater too.
