The fall feed is on in PA, and it creates great fishing opportunities.
Here is one of the Smallmouth bass I hooked while on a 10 mile float down the West Branch of the Susquehanna river, in my Wavewalk kayak.
I’m not much of a story teller but I stood up most of the time which allowed me to wing a crank bait out and run it through the deep water haunts where the breeders lay.
I had no need to stop, cause I could stand to fish and sit down to relax every so often. This is extremely important to me cause I have gone through three back surgeries and I need to be able to stretch out once in a while so I don’t get stiff.
There was a stiff cross wind blowing up river which would be a problem with any other kayak, but my Wavewalk tracked straight and true even in the cross wind.

My fishing buddy & I left on an early morning trip to fish some marshes along the ICW in Beaufort. The fishing was slow until the dropping tide. We then moved to a creek mouth and met success catching 6 flounder & 7 slot size red drum. My friend who was fishing from a sit on top style kayak periodically had to beach his kayak to stretch his legs. Not necessary for me in my Wavewalk Kayak! Great morning in a beautiful place!

My name is Linwood Crosby. I’m a little fella at 6 feet and 265 lbs, and I had my left knee replaced.
I venture to northern Maine, where I lived for 40 years, and do a lot of fly fishing in both remote ponds and large lakes, so this kayak is a lot more convenient than towing my 14 foot Jon boat.
Thank you for a kayak I feel I can safely fish out of.
I hadn’t been in a canoe or kayak for 5 years, so it took a little getting use to, but nothing major.
Easy in and easy out, and my feet stayed dry. Pretty cool, and it sure paddles well.
At first I found the seating a little slippery, due primarily to my left knee replacement and not being able to squeeze the seat enough, but I remedied,
that after I got my sea legs back and sitting higher -
After being out two more times I found that my replaced knee cap causes my left foot not stay in the proper position very long, under me, without discomfort, when paddling. I’m predominately a lefty. Sitting 1 inch higher on the saddle with the added pads [see picture] has helped. With the pads, I can put both feet directly under me, for a longer duration.
The stream near me, that I tried the Wavewalk on, is overflowing its banks from all the rain. I plan on going fishing in a pond near here, in a couple of days.
I got a real good running 1.2 hp GameFisher to try on it, as soon as I get more used to it.
The kayak is already outfitted with a transom mount.
