I've been slacking on the chrome crushing vids. Takes so dam long to edit. Trying to sync the two vids together using the PIP is a pain in the butt. Part time fisherman, full time cameraman out there and still need a good drone pilot to tag along.

 

Thanks for the inspirational speech TI lol. Needed that motivation to get my lazy ass up and make a vid. :mrgreen:

If you ever decide to get into it let me know. I'll take you out and familiarize yourself with the area and let ya build some confidence. I'm usually out there every weekend come the end of spring /beginning of summer. If you get even just 1 fish out there from a small craft..... Guaranteed you will be hooked for life.

140lb is with nothing on it. Unfortunately I have made many more things permanent on it since purchasing. Base weight on mine now is close to 180lbs. But yes I am loading and unloading like that. From start to finish of my fishing day it is definitely a workout.

We do set out at the first shimmer of light on the big pond. It is usually flat in the morning. Sometimes light rollers. I pack it in once wind hits about 25kmh. That's usually about when the waves start to really brake and the white caps begin to show their ugly face.

 

There are 6 major scupper holes through the hull of the Hobie Pro Angler series yaks. As long as you take the wave from the front or the back, any and all water rushes in and out just as fast. I'm not going to say they are unsinkable, but they are meant for big water. I took wake from an ocean liner one day. I thought for sure that I was about to go under when I seen it coming. I pointed the bow into it, and was completely engulfed. However, just as fast the water was gone.... I was wet but floating with zero water in the hull.

 

You cannot put a price on safety. I have invested a lot not only to ensure I catch fish, but also to ensure I make it home safe to see my little girls for another day.

Lift up the bow and set it on the back of the SUV. Go around to the other end of the yak. Pick it up and slide it down the roof rack to the front of the car.... its heavy but it works.
