Robbie, I do think a small yak would be awesome for running baits on a lake. And very efficient to save fuel running another boat. Be nice to keep the small boat on hand though for nights the wind may an issue. Hate to see Chad go into cardio distress trying to get back to the bank!! LOL ;D rollo

I plan on mounting my hummingbird 346c di, which is a down imaging unit on my kayak. Hopefully we'll find some rather large log jams and i get to use the down imaging to drop baits at their doorstep. Although it would be fun to fight a flattie from a kayak, i hope most of our battles are from a nice isolated sandbars where our kayaks have setting on the bank. I dont think i'd be able to pull a flattie out of the wood in a yak, unless anchored....even then i'd be nervous. Dont need to be headlining the local newspaper either....."local kayaker pulled into logjam by giant flathead, witnesses say he wouldnt let go of the rod."

We have fished from kayaks and canoes at a canoeing place on the Scioto river just south of columbus. My buddy who was with me caught a 16lber out of a log jam mid-day on a saturday when the place was packed. He was able to keep it from getting hung-up but even the 16lber pulled him around quite a bit. We had a crowd of ppl watching and rooting him on. I'de imagine a nice one would just about have their way with you on a kayak. Would sure be fun on a lake though!
Took the kayaks out today to do some crappie fishing. Ended up going about 3 miles total...and man i'm sore. It sounds wierd but my thighs and abs hurt. You would think you'd paddle with your shoulders and arms, but thats just not the case. A couple trips a week and i'll be back in shape in no time. Lol
