Hi all,

Well i'm looking for my first yak and really don't know where to start.

I'll be mainly using it for estuary lure fishing and venturing out to port phillip bay trolling, drifting and flicking plastics at anything that swims past. Also will use bait from time to time.

Depending on the species will determine if i'll keep them or C&R. After all a feed of flatties and whiting i can't turn down.

If it helps i'm 186cm and 83kg.

Iceman, a good function to try and attend is the Melbourne Mangoes Christmas BBQ this weekend - keep an eye in the Trip Reports section for the location. There will be probably be 6 or more different models of kitted out fishing yaks you could have a paddle/pedal of.
