My dad and I decided to take our W fishing kayaks out on Tims Ford Lake.
I never imagined it could be so much fun! We were able to get the Wavewalks in places we can’t take our other boat.
We fished with small yellow and white jigs using the trolling method. We threw our lines out and paddled the Wavewalks so the line would trail behind the kayaks. We caught over a dozen fish in a very short amount of time!
We decided to race back to the dock on our way in. I took the lead but eventually looked up to see Dad passing me up. He had the long W paddle with him which allows you to stand up while paddling the W fishing kayak. I couldn’t believe he won! Of course, I had to take my kayak back out for a second just to see what an advantage paddling while standing up would give a person.
The Wavewalk kayaks are very easy to load/unload, and maneuver in the water.
I was very comfortable while fishing, and I loved the fact I could stand up if I needed to.
I can’t wait for some more adventures…
Dennis Hodgetts, is a kayak angler who has been searching for the right fishing kayak for a long time. After having discovered the W500, Dennis decided he’d import these kayaks to New Zealand, and distribute them locally, for the benefit of his fellow kayak anglers.
Dennis’ website offers local trip reports and pictures.
Dennis’ kayak business is called Wavewalk New Zealand.
Jo Mares builds specialty motor boats, such as yachts and speed boats.
But that’s not Jo’s only trade, as he is also very fond of kayak fishing, and has been doing it in the ocean and mangroves around southern Florida and its island chains.
Jo got his first W Kayak back in 2006. It was an early version of the now discontinued W300 series, and fishing from it made me realize this new type of small watercraft is revolutionary. In other words, you can’t do any better, as far as kayak fishing goes. Then came the W500 series, and proved it was possible after all, but that’s another story… Simply, it’s the world’s finest fishing kayak by far, and the only one worth fishing from, if you ask Jo; Which is why he became Wavewalk fishing Kayaks’ local dealer here, in Key West.
At Key West Fishing Kayaks they keep W500 fishing kayaks in stock, and clients are welcome to schedule an appointment to come over and see the kayaks, and take one for a test ride.
Jo would be happy to help with advice on rigging your W kayak and fishing from it.
