John’s New ‘Tiger’ Camo W500 Fishing Kayak

Fishing kayak painted in autumn camo colors - Wisconsin

-“Jeanne and I had a chance to take a trip down a stretch of the Wisconsin river. Fishing was slow but the scenery was beautiful. The weather was perfect and we had a great time with the W kayaks.
The day after we arrived home my new W500 arrived. I sent some pictures from our trip to the river and my new paint scheme for the 500. I figured the tiger scheme will look good if we take it to Africa…

My plan is to use the 300 for streams, rivers, and ponds. I will use the new 500 for larger bodies of water and lake Michigan and be a little more visible.

I hope to test it out soon after I add a few fishing accessories.

  1. Whoa, that is one wild color setup. In my neck of the woods however it might make you a giant topwater for a hungry shark. Off shore boats here will frequently paint their bottoms with schools of bait fish to attract bigger fish to their hooks. There is at least one company in Florida that sells a bottom wrap with lifelike pictures of squid and bait fish. It must work they catch fish. Aside from the potential of being eaten it does look pretty cool. Nice job on the paint work.

  2. John,
    This is certainly one of the most remarkable fishing kayaks I’ve ever seen 😀
    It’s bold, artistic, and the camo pattern makes sense considering both the approaching foliage season and the need for visibility over large bodies of water such as the great lakes.
    Please send us more pictures 🙂

  3. Awesome design! It’s the fishing tiger / cat / yak 😀 😀

  4. John, If I did not mention it before. Get some Redfish Magics to fish with in your neck of the woods. Check out the article I have on Yoav’s site. In northern waters like yours they are killer.

  5. Outstanding! I really like the paint colors.
    Congrats on the New W500. 🙂

    Tight lines and Happy Paddling!
