Wavewalk 700 review by Canadian fishing & hunting guide

By Russ Popp

 

Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada

I am very pleased about the Wavewalk 700 .
It is a very easy craft to get in and out of.
It is a very stable craft for older people to feel safe in.
Easy to transport.
As an retired Canadian Outfitter and Guide for fishing and hunting, there is definite use and purpose for the Wavewalk in my outdoor activities, leaving the other four canoes, three kayaks and one twelve foot aluminum boat at home that I already had.

Last fall I used it for fishing and goose hunting with my gun dog.

I got my wife out, in the Wavewalk, this last fall –

 

 

We have some great videos with a go-pro but can’t seem to post them on you tube for some reason?

The ice believe it or not is still on the lakes this spring.
I was ice fishing for Lake Trout three weeks ago.

Lots of work to do this spring.
Tear down the old cabin (Had it from 1966, until now), and build a four seasons home in the bush, one hundred miles from where we are now living.
Will have to sneak in some kind of time, somewhere for the Wavewalk, but don’t know where this spring?

The only thing I am having trouble with the Wavewalk is, that here in Canada, the plumbing pipe sizes don’t match the American plumbing pipe size holes, in the seat to make accessories for the craft at this time.
I am sure at some point in time, after building our home in the bush, I will find away to get the right size plastic pipe, and stand attachments for bolting onto the plywood to make all my ideas I have in mind.
Too bad I am retired now from Outfitting American clients, because they could have brought some pipe and attachments up with them, when they came up hunting and fishing with me.

First Fishing Trip of 2017: Kokanee were a no show but the trout wanted to play

By Chris Henderson

Fishing Kayaks of Gig Harbor

 

Remodel season (the season in between ducks and fishing) is officially over! The honeydos are certainly not all accomplished but I have enough off of the list that I was able to get out and go fishing. American Lake is open year around so there is not big fishing season opening day on this lake but it was my opening day.

It was windy and gusty which made it a challenge to keep a real constant speed (something the kokanee like) but I was able to make it work.
The kokanee were a no show (it is early in the year to catch them consistantly) but fortunately the trout wanted to play!

Great day on the water in a W700.

Enjoy

A nice day in Ozella, fishing with Bob

By Gary Rankel

Nature Coast Kayak Fishers

Bob Smaldone and I headed out in our W 500’s today. Bob cheated a bit with his trolling motor, but I managed to keep up with him most of the time. He was almost run over by a group of yakers out for a day of fun. We got some nice trout but nothing worth bringing the camera out for.
