Hi Josh...congrats. What boat did you buy? Have you started ‘accessorizing’ yet? How have you set your rig up so far?
I paddled for pleasure and exercise for over 20 years before I even thought about fishing from a yak. Was a Carolina Skiff man until about 3 years ago, and then decided to sell it and fish exclusively from yaks. That was a wake-up call about how much I did not know! My sit-in yaks just did not allow me the space I thought I needed, and that’s when I bought my first sit-on boat, and since then I have bought 2 more. Now I am peddling and think I finally have rigged up in a way that works for me and my style of fishing.
As many people on this forum say, you are likely to go through several boats til you figure out what works for you. Hopefully, if that happens, you can move your accessories from one boat to the next. Or maybe you have hit a home run with your first pick?!
