Went out today with my brother to try some Crappie and Bluegill fishing, and to check on the ducks. So darn cold here in Wisconsin, yet, and everything is late again. But it was great to get out anyway 🙂
We decided to explore a part of the Oconomowoc River we have never been on before. Right from the start we had to cross over some logs. This was good…. I knew we would have this part of the river to ourselves.
Throughout this stretch traditional canoes and kayaks would not be able to navigate obstacles. With a Wavewalk kayak simply slide yourself to the rear of the kayak, paddle up on the partially submerged log, shimmy or paddle a bit until you feel you have centered the kayak, slide yourself to the front of the kayak and paddle or shimmy to the other side. WARNING: do not attempt this with a traditional kayak with a rounded hull… you will flip over.
It was a fun day and made possible by Wavewalk kayaks. We saw three deer, all sorts of big birds, and had the entire stretch of the river to ourselves – on a Saturday!
This weekend, we headed up to a fishing tourney on the Michigamme River, in Michigan Upper Peninsula.
As always, Wavewalk kayaks attracted a lot of attention. I love talking to people about these super kayaks.
We didn’t catch any whoppers but we had fun with the “Yoopers”, and we got some Northern Pike action. Eagles in the sky added to the beauty of the day.
