It’s been awhile but we are still enjoying the Wavewalk!
Been a slow fishing summer due to the fact that Nioca is having twin boys any day now! Looking forward to getting them on the Wavewalk asap 😀
These pics are from July bassin at Saratoga lake.

July 3rd paddling and fishing adventures

By John Fabina

Jeanne and I headed out to a stretch of the Oconomowoc River that we have never paddled before. It’s always exciting to explore new areas with our Wavewalks.
It was more of a exploration trip then a fishing trip but I took a rod along anyways.
The water sure looked good as we went downstream. I was able to tie into some Smallmouth Bass. These small guys fight like big ones in the river current and this time of the year they get some air. One practically jumped into my Wavewalk.
I always check satellite photos for waters we haven’t explored that are nearby. Amazingly these streams can make you feel like you are out in the boonies. Always take a rod…..you will be surprised what you can catch near urban areas.
We watched a deer walking along with turkeys…

141 outings in 3 years. Best purchase of my life (almost)

Robbie Cairl

W. Massachusetts

I’m sorry I have not made any videos with my awesome Wavewalk 500. My buddy did take this snapshot of me yesterday. I’m about to land (and release) a nice 2 1/2 lb. smallmouth bass on the Connecticut River in Sunderland MA.
I love my W and keep track of my outings. Yesterday was my 141st adventure in 3 years. My back and all round fishing and kayaking experiences have been heavenly since I made the best purchase of my life. Well, second best, after my wedding license.

Me: Wavewalk 500 owner since spring 2013. I’m 60-ish soon to retire and use my W even more. I love to explore new bodies of water and fish (catch and release except for the rare stocked trout I may have to share with camping buddies). The Connecticut and Deerfield Rivers are my favorite haunts, I can put in the Conn just about a mile from home. My usual trip is a 3 mile paddle up stream for cardio and core workout, then crack a beer and float home while fishing, photographing, bird watching and observing whatever nature has to offer. The upright paddling position has allowed me to kayak more often for longer periods of time. The ample room, ability to stand, ease of handling while transporting were all added benefits I continue to enjoy.

Trifecta – Smallmouth Bass, Largemouth Bass, and Northern Pike, while exploring new water

By John Fabina

I decided to explore new water on the Fox River today.
It was possible to launch the Wavewalk at a bridge where only a kayak could be launched. I wouldn’t attempt to launch here with a conventional kayak……..it would be easy to flip. It was a relaxing and fun day. I caught the trifecta , Smallmouth Bass, Largemouth Bass, and Northern Pike.
The bass were caught on a jointed Rapala and the pike on a Wacky worm.
As always hit the bridges for the current breaks and fish any inlets that dig out holes.
