A motorized kayak is a kayak outfitted with a motor. Typically, motorized kayaks are used for fishing, as a motor offers the angler a longer range of travel for their fishing trips. The most common type of motor used in fishing kayaks is an electric trolling motor powered by a battery that’s carried on board. W kayaks are stable enough to be outfitted with electric motors as well as powerful outboard gas engines. The latter are often more dependable and useful than electric motors, especially for longer trips and for traveling in moving water, e.g. offshore and in adverse weather conditions.

I Hit the river at 9:00am. First drift, at 9:39am, the first Schoolie was in the boat.
The Bite wasn’t as good as my first trip, but with 2 stripers a 32″ and one at 32 1/2″ I’m one Happy Friggen Yaker 😀
The best part of my day was having a striper hit the top water lure, sending in the air, then coming back and hitting it again with a tail slap, when I realized, it was 3 Stripers fighting over it. When Finally it Happened, I Had a Double on, and it was 2 Good size Keepers, they were rolling and fighting when one popped off. But the one I got in the boat was the 32 1/2″ fatty.
I ended up with 10 Stripers, ranging from 24″ to the 32 1/2″.
I headed for the ramp at 12:30, I was pooped out, didn’t think I could reel in another fish 🙂 Plus, I was soooooooooo tired from standing and fishing all morning.
That W500 is a work out machine, just as much as she is a FISHING MACHINE!!!!!!!
Notice, my GoPro Hero2 mounted and ready to record – Enjoy the porn 😉 (Best viewed in full screen mode)
