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!

  1. Thank you Sid,

    Looks like motorizing your W500 yielded impressive fish.
    The photos indicate that this trip wasn’t just about trout fishing, but also about sight seeing and photography. This place looks out of this world! 🙂


  2. Amazing pictures. 🙂

    Beautiful fish, and great video.

    Thanks so much for sharing your day.

    My goodness that is a remarkably beautiful place. Great job on the long pole with those colorful trout. I also like the way you have the trolling motor mounted.

  4. Great shots, Sid. I attended the Univ. of Idaho in Moscow and did my Master’s on cutthroat trout in the St. Joe River. That truly is God’s country. I need to get back there one of these days. For now, I’ll paddle my W500 around Florida’s inshore areas.

    Packer, the Palouse area around Moscow is unique, one of my favorites. I’m a wheat breeder, and have research plots near Genesee.

  6. Hey Sid…..I’m sure Moscow and the University have changed a lot since I left in 1971. I hope I can get out there and drive up the St. Joe one more time. I’ve lived in several areas, but northern Idaho and the California redwoods are my 2 favorites. Somehow I managed to retire down here in Florida, mostly because I have a wife who gets cold when the temp. drops below 80.

    I haven’t motorized my Wavewalk yet, but will think more about that when my aging body can no longer manage 5+ mile paddles to my favorite fishing areas.

  7. Gary,

    Your wife was right. For half of the year 😀
