Re: Are reef kayaks any good?

Answer to your question, yep they are good..for the money.
Next step, try a few different paddles if you can. An upgrade will improve your enjoyment hugely. And you can keep your new paddle if you ever see the need to change your kayak in the future.

Re: Deep diving lures

I have tried small inline singles , the trebles give much better results though. Double hooks seem to maintain the correct action that the snapper seem to like. Don’t go too small in Hook size, the maniacal undersized snapper that hit these things will surprise you! I flatten the barbs for my own pe...

Re: Deep diving lures

Awesome. They work good 8)
Squashing the barbs down is safer too. Looks like you swapped to double hooks from the trebles?
You would have to be brave to run diving lures without a depth reading fish finder ay .

Re: BerleyPro Visor Review....

I have a Berley Pro on the Lowrance I’m selling. Does all that Hainsey says it does. The Rob Fort cover I had on a previously owned Garmin unit protected the cables and plugs from most of the water water splashes and dunking. Trade off was a slightly more difficult to read display due to the plastic...

Re: 20lb Snapper?

Could be nudging 20. My big ones have had the tail wrist too big to close my fingers around. Good indicator. Sometimes long but slender doesn't weigh as much as you'd expect
All depends on the condition. Bloody good fish

Check out Reef Kayaks, supposedly designed with the larger paddler in mind.
