Wavewalk 500 kayaks, a.k.a. W500

4 lbs large mouth bass with lots of salad

By Robbie Cairl

Here is an interesting photo from this summer. My friend was panicking because I said I am releasing the fish if he takes a picture or not. He somehow had it in panoramic mode which caused the odd double exposure. A nice 4 lb large mouth with a huge side of salad as you can see!

I got a small, 30 lb thrust electric trolling motor and crudely attached it to my W500. I only used it twice and now wish I had gotten a slightly more powerful motor. It really didn’t do the job against a steady Connecticut River current, I will guess 2 knots. However it handles great and pushes me about twice as fast as my friends paddling their yaks.

Now the new S4 video is amazing! Some day I will bite the bullet and get a gas powered motor. My friend has a 2 horse on his jon boat, and not only does it fly it is so quiet you needn’t raise your voice to converse while running full speed. I still want the exercise I get from paddling though so the motor is just for getting me longer distances.

My oldest granddaughter will be 3 this summer and I am dying to get her on the water!

End of the fall season in Idaho, fishing in my electric Wavewalk 500 kayak

By Sid Perry

 

Here are some photos from this fall.

I added a motor mount and used a 30 hp trolling motor. At lowest speed it’s a very nice trolling speed. Caught some awfully nice fish this fall.

I continue to enjoy how the Wavewalk gets me to places I normally couldn’t reach.
I get lots of looks and questions!

Motorized Wavewalk 500 bass fishing trip

By Rox Davis

 

Took the W500 out yesterday for the first time since I’ve gotten the W700.
I Didn’t have the truck, so the Kia was it.

It was a windy day, water temps still at 67 degrees.
Lots of small fish, then a couple of good Large Mouths to save the day.

I made a video, and you will laugh when you hear what happens.

Tight Lines and MoPaddle Safe all.
