Motorboat, microskiff and kayak / canoe

This new type of dual use kayak and motorboat can be outfitted with a 5 HP at the rear outboard and a lightweight electric trolling motor in the front – A perfect solution for launching and beaching anywhere, and fishing in all types of water, including shallows, flats and offshore, and for going on long fishing and camping trips.

You can also paddle it effectively (it’s just 31″ wide) in a kayak style (dual blade paddles) or canoeing style (single blade paddles), seated and standing, and it’s ideal for poling in shallow waters.

The 580 lbs recommended load capacity and spacious 7’8″ long cockpit assure that you’d be able to take on board any gear you want, and a fishing buddy.

And there’s much more useful innovation coming with the new Wavewalk 700 series –

Kayak fishing and the Texas drought

We all know how the Texas drought is drying up our lakes and closing boat ramps but you can keep fishing with a kayak. Here is a photo of our boat dock. The water is usually right under the walkway but it is now sitting on the ground and there may be ankle deep water at the end of the dock.
I took our boat off the lift months ago and started fishing from a kayak. I was having a blast but my back could only take about 30 minutes sitting in the traditional kayak position.
I kept thinking that I would get used to it and get more comfortable but after a few weeks, I gave up on that and bought a Wavewalk kayak.
These kayaks solved my back issues. They are easy to stand up in but there is a small learning curve… The first time I tried standing I felt as nervous as a long tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs. I sat back down in a more stable position and paddled for a few minutes and then decided to give it another go. This second try was much better… I still had fawn legs but stood right up and paddled from the standing position for 15-20 minutes. I was feeling a lot more confident and the shaky fawn legs had gone away so I reached behind me and grabbed the cast net and threw it a few times… No problem… This is all in the first 30 minutes of getting in a Wavewalk.
The thing I really like about these kayaks is the speed. They are much faster than the big wide kayak I was using before. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
