I fish PPB and Estuaries around VIC. I think the Tarpon 120 is great.

I am sure all Yaks are great, it is just a matter of finding the one that best suits our individual applications.

Feel free to ask any question regarding the fitout

Hi Greg,

Looks like that you are well setup there. The rear adjustable holders are interesting. I also like your anchor setup using the sliding float. I do the same thing, it's useful if you want to detach deliberately (or accidentally) from your anchor you don't lose it.

Have you had much success in PPB on the snapper and whiting? I mostly fish the eastern side.

The Tarpons sure are a nice looking yak. Nice set up Greg.

Thanks guys. It works well for me and the sounder is interchangeable to my double.

Kevin

I have only fished around the Black Rock area with mates and a couple of times with Rod L from the forum.

I used to live in Clayton / Dingley.

Rod gave me a couple of lessons on using SP's

Preferred fishing methods are SP and Fly but will drown a baiit or troll a HB.

Off to Kilcunda for 3 days with a group of Beach Fisherman but will take the Yak and get at least on session in the Powlett River chasing Bream on SPs and Fly.

Greg,

Thats a magic looking yak you have there :wink: Now your living in Altona have you tried any local spots if so how have you done. There's a slight possiblity we will end up settleing at Point cook in the next few years and being so close to the water "well I'm excited about it all" :D :D :D

Must catch up for a fish one day, regards Milt

I love the ingenuity (sp?) - check out the bait holders on the seat straps - first time I've seen that. What a great idea.

Thanks guys

I am not much for bait fishing but when I had my Synchro most of the paddling friends were novices to paddling and fishing.

I could ensure the bait was easily accesible to them by using the surf / beach fishermans bait buckets. The lids act as a small cutting area if need be.

These bait buckets have different size belt loops so either measure the width of your seat straps first or buy the buckets with the bigest belt loops.

I took to my belt loops with a hacksaw and cut a section of the loop out so the Sevylor seat straps would also fit. I can still use them when fishing the beach land based. Another option is to secure them with small plastic cable ties and cut the cable ties off after each trip. That way you cut the bait bucket loops.

I continue to use them on either single yak when the need arises.
