Kayak Ice Fishing (In a Way), And Last Tiger Muskie For The Season – By Gary Thorberg

The Wavewalk kayak can do many things, but breaking thick ice is not one of them. It is too light, and simply rides up on top of the ice. I stopped after a couple of feet, as this could put you in a dangerous position (not recommended).
I think that my lake kayaking is about over this year.
One final Tiger Muskie is a good way to close out the season!

  1. Thanks Gary. Cool story 😀 and a good looking fish!
    Indeed, ice and kayaks don’t mix very well, and kayaking in icy water is not a good idea, even with a W kayak. It’s just too unsafe, unless the water is knee deep or shallower, because Stuff Happens

  2. Nice job on the Tiger Muskie. 🙂

    And great pictures, a true trophy fish here in CT, only two lakes in the state have a tiger muskie population.

    Yep breaking through ice once was enough for me.

    Not only unsafe, I was exhausted.

    I’m hoping for another trip or two before the ice comes.

    Tight lines and MoPaddle safe all.
