  1. Hello, One thing I failed to take into consideration when I purchased my PA is winter usage (not a problem this year) my fear is the cables or chain icing over and rendering drive unusable. If anybody has been out in freezing weather with a Hobie with Mirage drive have you encountered any problems and if so how did correct this issue. Any discussion on this matter would help. Please help. I didn't find the right solution from the internet. References: http://www.kayakfishthegreatlakes.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=482 Creative Adverts Thank you.
  2. Hello, First day with our '17 PA 12's. I purchased one of the XL Livewells for my wife's PA 12. First day on the water with it and it will not prime by itself. Tried going fast but no prime. Intake seems to be positioned correctly. If I put the livewell in the water it will pump water but not when installed in the boat. I even filled the tank half way with water and it still will not pump. I thought maybe an air leak somewhere in the intake, everything looks secure and tight. No air bubbles discharged into the tank. Zero water flow. Battery was charged for 24 hours before first use. This is a first use issue with this livewell. Suggestions? Please help. I didn't find the right solution from the internet.

  3. Hello, I went fishing one time in my life and that was on National Fishing Day a couple of years ago at Vasona Lake in Los Gatos, CA. Me and a friend had no clue what we were doing, we just bought some rods and some random ass fake bait and headed out there. With the fake bait and our noob casting skills, we managed to catch nothing. Eventually we just bummed some anchovies of some of the people already there and with their help managed to cast lines and catch a few catfish. All in all, it was pretty fun. This week I feel compelled to try again with my little brother since we have some time off. A few questions. - Is it even fishing season? -Where and how does one obtain a fishing license? Please help. I didn't find the right solution from the internet. References: https://arstechnica.com/civis/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=143209 Explainer video examples Thank you.
  4. Hello, I have been chatting with a few mates who fish lakes right throughout the year. And after three or so years of fishing regularly they have come to the conclusion that fishing lakes for trout in this part of the world just doesn’t seem as productive in winter. Lakes I am talking about are mainly in the west from Lake Fyans, Toolondo, Moorabool, Newlyn, Hepburn and Tullaroop. They have noticed considerably reduced catches compared to the warmer months, perhaps excluding heat waves in January/February. Now this doesn’t make sense to me. Trout are a cold-water fish, they should enjoy these temperatures. Also, lakes somewhere like the South Island of New Zealand probably have our winter temperatures in summer, so it shouldn’t be below trouts normal feeding limits. Maybe it's the case that even if temperatures aren’t that low, they are at their lowest point throughout the year and trout metabolism naturally shuts down at a low point. What are others thoughts on this issue? Is trout fishing lakes for trout worse in winter? Please help. I didn't find the right solution from the internet.

  5. Hello, I have a nice Mont bell Ellesmere kayak that I outfitted with a rod holder. I can hold two rods on my deck with them crossing and angled about 45 degrees forward, 45 degrees up; enough to clear the paddle and still be accessible. I'm facing one small problem; I have no clue how to fish on the ocean . Is there an ocean Kayak fishing 101 article out there somebody could recommend? I'm not completely hopeless; I do pond bass fishing (Texas rig, spinners, and jigs) and ocean mackerel is easy enough but they are too small on my neck of the woods. Speaking of my neck of the woods I'm in northern Japan; I paddle on theAomori bay and the Pacific ocean. Please help. I didn't find the right solution from the internet.

  6. Hello, I have a new 2009 Revo, and went to plug in my fishfinder (Eagle 250) and it would not turn on. My 2ND TIME USING IT!! I checked the obvious stuff, battery power and correct connections. However, there were 2 things i noticed that might be a problem. #1) The dealer install cut a little opening for wires to go out from the battery inside the watertight container, and it looks like it was too tight, and a tiny bit of the red wire is exposed.#2) One of the metal plug-in needles in the fish-finder was bent. I didn't notice this the 1st time, but it worked. I bent it back and plugged/unplugged the wires a few times. It does not appear to be weakened or on the verge of breaking off. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Obviously something like this I"m on my own with since it would be silly to send a kayak back to a dealer to redo wiring, etc. Please help.

  7. Hello, After reading lots of your discussions, here I am asking my first question. We (4 French guys, 30-ish years old) are planning a 6 days hiking and wild camping in the highlands between Ullapool and Kinlochewe im late may and we are wondering about the possibility for us to fish and eventually catch one or two trouts to accomodate our dinner. I am the only one with a (very little) experience in fishing and we would only bring one rod and some spinnerbaits / swimbaits. We don't have fly fishing equipment and don't plan on investing for the moment. Do you know if we can catch something in the Highlands with spinnerbaits and basic swimbaits? Please help.

  8. Hello, I want to buy a Spyderco knife for a good friend who's an avid fisherman. He mostly floats rivers in Montana and Wyoming--not so much saltwater deep-sea activity. Anyway, I was going to try to find a Catcherman for him, but then I thought about H-1 probably being a better bet. So here's my question: if you were going to have one knife for fishing, would it be plain or SE, and would you prefer the Salt 1 or Pacific Salt? I'm kind of partial to the yellow handles because they're easy to see when you need them. Or should I go back to plan A and get him a Catcherman? Please help. I didn't find the right solution from the internet. References: https://www.spyderco.com/forumII/viewtopic.php?t=25697 Real Estate Video marketing Thank you
  9. Hi, I like fish. In particular, I like salmon and tuna a lot. However, living in upstate New York means that fresh salmon and tuna is very expensive. The most economical option I have is farm-raised, prepackaged, frozen, individually wrapped fillets. For instance, I can get a package of salmon which contains a dozen or so individually wrapped frozen fillets. Now, along with my affinity for salmon and tuna, I also believe that best way to cook them is seared. Nice and (almost) blackened on the outside, but still raw on the inside. However, I'm worried that such frozen prepackaged fish is not safe to consume raw or seared. It just seems like all the extra processing that goes into getting to the supermarket in that form means it must be cooked all the way through. Can anybody tell me if my fears are unfounded? Please help. I didn't find the right solution from the Internet. References:- https://arstechnica.com/civis/viewtopic.php?t=208289 Company Profile video animation Thanks!
  10. Hi, Kayak fishing is fishing from a kayak. The kayak has long been a means of transportation and a stealth means of approaching easily spooked fish, such as cobia and flounder. Kayak fishing has gained popularity in recent times due to its broad appeal as an environmentally friendly and healthy method of transportation, as well as its relatively low cost of entry compared to motorized boats. Many of the techniques used in kayak fishing are essentially the same as those used on other fishing boats. The difference is in the set-up, how each piece of equipment is fitted to the kayak, and how each activity is carried out on such a small craft. Modern fishing kayak - high transverse stability of the hull allows for safe fishing without the risk of overturning Contemporary kayaks can be equipped with after-market fishing accessories such as anchor trolleys, rod holders, electronic fish-finders and live-bait containers. Kayak anglers target highly prized gamefish like snook, red drum, seatrout, tarpon, halibut and cod and also pelagics like amberjacks, tuna, sailfish, wahoo, king mackerel, and even marlin.

  11. Hi, Fly fishing is an angling method in which an artificial "fly" is used to catch fish. The fly is cast using a fly rod, reel, and specialized weighted line. Casting a nearly weightless fly or "lure" requires casting techniques significantly different from other forms of casting. Fly fishermen use hand tied flies that resemble natural invertebrates, baitfish, other food organisms, or "lures" to provoke the fish to strike (bite at the fly). Fly fishing can be done in fresh or salt water. North Americans usually distinguish freshwater fishing between cold-water species (trout, salmon, steelhead) and warm-water species, notably bass. In Britain, where natural water temperatures vary less, the distinction is between game fishing for trout and salmon versus coarse fishing for other species. Techniques for fly fishing differ with habitat (lakes and ponds, small streams, large rivers, bays and estuaries, and open ocean.) For More Details:- Market Intelligence Video Thanks!
