Bought Kayak

Post by whizzwales »

Just starting a thread after receiving my Zander One man Kayak today from Cambridge Kayaks.

Looking forward to getting out on the water so I can cast the muiras mouse and suicide duck down the river than just across.

Will keep everyone posted!

Thanks Bill, I'm pretty sure that's my first 3 pounder and took me best part of 6 or 7 years to catch. I've caught dozens and dozens of 2's from my Yak but the 3's, everyone else "seemed" to catch, always eluded me by an ounce or 4? The river I've bought my cabin on is about as good as it gets for them over here?

(But the BIG ones are slowly disappearing here too now face)

They're a stunning fish when they get bigger Dave. Over the years, I've caught hundreds of 2's and a dozen 3's to 3-07 from assorted lakes within a few miles of home here. They were nearly always a by product of tench fishing. Unfortunately, the steady spread of roach across Ireland saw the disappearance of most of the big rudd.
I miss them... :cry:

It's hard to determine which coarse species are 'native' to Ireland Alan, but Rudd are probably about as native as it gets. Roach are a relatively recent arrival in most areas in environmental terms. I can remember fishing the Shannon when I was much younger and they were practically unheard of, being confined to just a couple of smaller Irish rivers. The creation of the Shannon- Erne canal seems to have been instrumental in their spread and there has been a steady pattern of Rudd disappearing as roach reached new waters.

We had some fantastic rudd fishing on a little lake in Ireland near Derg. I remember it well but not for the great rudd fishing but because as I had a swig of beer from a can I tilted me head back a got a massive shock from the electric fence behind us!

I picked up a Cambridge Zander Fishing Kayak. £440 delivered. Its big and its solid. I have already built the rod holders, one for big lures, one for light lures and one for bait catching (mini rod) - last slot for net.

If you can, pick a kayak with a raised seat as opposed to a cushion type,To me it's a game changer for casting and comfort and my back doest hurt like it used to on my old kayak.

I've been thinking for years I should raise my seat, as I'm sure I aggravate my already painful back when in my Yak with it's cushion type seat.

I've never noticed the roach making any difference to the tench Dave, other then maybe being a nuisance sometimes when actually fishing, but this does'nt happen everywhere. The biggest change is of course the astronomical numbers of roach/bream hybrids, which makes fishing for and catching bream a more specific exercise.

If you can, pick a kayak with a raised seat as opposed to a cushion type,To me it's a game changer for casting and comfort and my back doest hurt like it used to on my old kayak.
I've been thinking for years I should raise my seat, as I'm sure I aggravate my already painful back when in my Yak with it's cushion type seat.

(Perhaps I'll bodge summit at see how it goes face)
Anthony on here bought a raised kayak seat from ebay that he was using on a kayak similar to a galaxy Cruz. Keep meaning to get one for my Cruz but haven’t got round to it yet,will be good for avoiding a wet a**e when I’m sea fishing in it!

It was similar to this one, but you could probably adapt an old fishing chair to make something like it.

Anyone wanting a raised kayak seat take a look at Cambridge Kayaks in Diss, Norfolk. Same as pic above but got mine for £10 when they had a stall at the Norfolk showground boat jumble. Take a look at the Gravity seat by Feelfree. What a seat.
