To add a bit of fun, interest, and to see what others do, i thought I'd throw up a Poll of the Week in the general section, just a short poll to see what other kayak fishers out there have/use/do with their kayaks.

I've got a few ideas:

Kayak Colour
Bait or Softbait
How far do you paddle

Yep not many Ideas, so feel free you throw some in here and I'll add them to the list!

Cheers, Mental

Give a man a fish and feed him for a day. Teach a man to Yak fish and you won't hear from him most weekends :-P

Ummm...

How many yaks do you own...

How many yaks have you owned

Not sure about this one, but how much $$$ have you spent on kayak fishing over the years ? ( There must be a way of hiding this from the misses )
Might need a large range for this one !!

Not this one, can you imagine trying to work that one out.....
Far to hard, unless we just round it to the nearest 10k ;)

Awesome guys, these questions are great and quite easy set options and way less chance of opening the can of worms that is "What colour is your kayak?" :roll:

Thanks heaps!

Just a thought, are you better off starting a Polls section, rather than just in the general?
Is sounds like we are going to end up with a few of them, and it may help re searching at a later date....

We could ask which place is the best place to live in - 0h but that's already been done and New Plymouth was voted best by the rest of the world 8-) - Glad we didn't come fourth :lol:
