Yak Bassin in Wisconsin (Movie) – John Fab. WI

It proves again that you don't necessarily need a 50 grand bass boat to catch big bass, and yet be comfortable and dry while you're doing it, which you can't be if you fish from kayaks other than the W. John caught this magnificent largemouth bass in very shallow water (see movie) - John says that his W kayak would take him to spots where no other boat can go, including other fishing kayaks. It has to do with the fact that you can launch the W practically anywhere, and go with it over obstacles in shallow water, as well as stand up in it anytime you want, and scout for passages in the thick vegetation, and sometime even push pole in very skinny water - One of the reasons why a long and sturdy W kayak paddle is more practical than other paddles.

John sent us this new movie:

    That’s a fine looking large mouth bass you got!
    Looks like the weather up there is getting a little better… 🙂
    Fishing from kayaks in cold regions is similar to mainstream kayak fishing, which is largely a southern phenomenon, but it’s also different in some aspects.
    This is a blog about kayak fishing in cold water and weather: http://northernkayakfishing.wordpress.com/

    Yeh, kayak fishing in the south is more wishful thinking than possible, and up north it’s altogether an impossibility (imho) unless of course you’re talking about fishing out of a w yak, which makes both southern and northern kayak fishing a pleasure

    Not too bad a copyright, eh? 😉

    It’s a catch, because anglers who reject the notion of fishing from a kayak to begin with, might think why would one yak be so different from other yaks, and how does that compare to my canoe, or Jonboat, or bassboat to begin with??
    And yak anglers who’ve grown used to the hardships and discomfort of kayak fishing can say “How can two pieces of plastic of similar size be so different?”

    Here’s what John says on his own kayak fishing blog in Wisconsin:
    “Big bass like this lurk in lakes that receive little fishing pressure. Boats and regular kayaks are not able to reach these types of water that the Wavewalk can access. I am able to manuever over objects such as bogs and logs and tight spots. Being able to stand also comes in handy while looking for fish and pockets in shallow water. I find these fish factories by checking satellite photos and maps. The Wavewalk kayak does the rest. It is not surprising that these lakes, ponds and streams hold quality fish. The amazing part is that they can be so close to urban areas.”
