BREAKING NEWS!
Hi folks. I wanted to update you on our maps development. We've programmed the maps now so that you can do everything through your Settings Page. Add your address info and map visibility=yes in the Edit your Details section, then join the Kayak Angler group in Permission Groups (under My Account section in the left hand Settings page list), and you'll automatically show up on our Kayak and Canoeist Member Map and get the Kayak Angler designation under your name in all of your posts. :D Enter your home waters and boat info and that will show up as well. Enjoy!
From now on, please use the Permission Groups section on your Settings page to join the map as described above - Thanks, jeffonc.

Feel free to post your info on the end of this thread as a way of introducing yourself.

I believe the kayak anglers out here have reached a point of critical mass, and I give yellowsub the credit for pushing us over the brink. We've got a couple of nice, if lightly used, kayak forums here on NCangler, but I'd like to see us take things to another level by putting ourselves on the map. In fact, I'd like to create a map for NCangler.com kayak fishermen. I think canoists should be welcome too - they're just like us, only topless!:eek:

[-] If you will post a reply to this thread with the following information, I will add you to the map:[/-]
  • [-]Zip Code[/-]
  • [-]Model, size & color of Kayak/Canoe[/-]
  • [-]"home" waters (just a couple, don't go crazy for now)[/-]
This should give us an idea of who's who, who's where, and what they're paddling (or pedaling, for hobie-ists). I think it could be a good resource for folks looking to buy a particular brand of kayak/canoe, looking for folks to fish with in particular areas, or just interesting to see how many other paddling nuts are around their neck of the woods.

Here's a link to the map - NC Angler Fishing - Maps - NC Kayak Anglers and Canoeist Members

Hello Jeffonc,

Comforting to know I am in the company of other fishyakers. My wife said I've gone over the edge and there's no hauling me back. I say, Lo, I was lost and now I am found!!
I live in Fuquay, as we have established. Zip code 27526. I'm paddling a 12' LL manta-ray affectionately referred to as "the yellow submarine" hence my user name. Since acquiring the sub, I have limited myself to lakes and ponds. I hope to broaden my horizon by slipping quietly into the briney world. I have this recurring fantasy of putting in at Oregon inlet and finding myself in the gulf stream hooked up to a 300 pound big eye tuna! Oh the possibilities.
My home waters, well anywhere I don't have the likelihood of being arrested or shot. :D

Ah, the Mantas have quite a following!

If your calendar is open on June 23, there's a meet'n'greet event scheduled at Fort Fisher -- south of Wilmington. It's also a great place to introduce the boat to salty water -- protected from the Cape Fear River by jetties and protected from the ocean by barrier islands. Keep in touch if you wanna discuss ride-sharing somehow..... With the boats, it's kinda awkward, but I'm sure open for discussion.

If you're really addicted, you could stay over until the 24th and participate in Cape Fear Kayaks' tournament. That's also a great place for a rookie tourney-fisher.

Well shoot, I'm on call during the date you specified. Hauling the fishing vehicle of choice is no problem. I set up the F-250 with the Thule Xsporter 422.
Any pictures of your fishing platform? I have the basics but haven't rigged an anchor system. I've checked out a few web sites detailing various trolley setups. I figure the basic logic applies, make it sturdy and keep it simple.
Regards, gene

ding! got another via PM.. Up to 12 now. Its starting to look like a map:
NC Angler - Fishing North Carolina from the mountains to the coast - Kayakers Map

Still looking for these folks who have been suspected of fishing out of a yak/canoe (or have been spending a lot of time drooling over them at their local shop - that's you RobinH!)
  • Hogg Tied
  • mutualchris
  • ptorresb
  • reelnemin
  • RobinH
  • rockfish45
Must be others I'm forgetting and some I didn't even know about. Please [-]reply or PM with your zip code, size model & color of kayak/canoe, and home waters that you fish.[/-] go to your User CP (on the menu bar), fill out the profile information on your boat, select the option to be displayed on maps, then join the NC Kayak Anglers group in the Group Memberships area. Vioila, you'll be mapped - Thanks!

I hope everybody saw the news that NCangler.com has opened a maps section and is now hosting our Kayak Armada map. (You can find the maps in the "Quick Links" pull down menu - Captain's Club, Blog Captains and NCangler Kayakers)

I think the NCangler version may be an update or two older than the one on my personal site. I'll figure out how to push updates tonight and will migrate all the links to the "official page".

gotta give yellowsub the credit for pushing me over the edge on creating another map, which pushed NCangler over the edge on hosting the maps here on the NCangler.com site. Thanks again yellowsub!

And thanks to NCangler for giving us a place to play out here!!
