New ride for 2021

Postby JasonN » Mar Sun 28, 2021 5:11 pm

Pulled the trigger on a new kayak... a FeelFree Lure 11.5V2. For the past 5 years i've had the Lure 10V1. It was time to retire that one and i'm SO glad to see it in good hands with Busse Jim.

The new Lure allows me to add a rudder, as well as mount electronics directly into the center console. Picked a Humminbird Helix 5 SI and will be getting that installed this week. The kayak is only a week old but already has 4 outings to 4 different waters under its belt. Several Bass and northern pike too. :)

To fish or not to fish......that's a stupid question.

Pretty darn cool that you are finding all sorts of little underpressured gems to take the old and now new yak on. I'm sure it will be an epic Spring.
