My 1st kayak a Mission Xstream 420

Postby bonetti30 » Wed Aug 15, 2012 6:39 pm

I picked up the kayak just over a week ago second hand and have added railblaza rod holder, scotty anchor lock and new seat since picked up.
I have gone ou once with the kayak since bought and love how it handles the wind and how easly it glides through the water.

Wow. That really looks the goods. I've never seen an anchor lock before. Is there an advantage over an anchor trolley (you seem to have one of those too)? As it's Scotty, I presume it's removable so doesn't get in your way as a lure catcher when you don't need it.

Nice setup, I really enjoy the 420, they're a nice kayak. Did you use the transducer hole for the fish finder or did you mount the transducer inside the hull?

the transducer was mounted inside the hall of the kayak. im pretty sure its called a wet mount that was done.(when you put a bit of water under it before use)

Its a Nice Kayak Jack. You should get plenty of fun out of her. Take your time getting used to her before you make too many mods. You'll soon learn what works for you.
