Welcome to the HardCore Kayak Anglers ForumYou are currently viewing our boards as a guest, which gives you limited access to view most discussions and access our other features. Ok, there's already been a review on this kayak, though I'm a big believer in the more opinions the better . If your yak doesn't have a rudder, you are workingtoo hard, enjoying yaking less, and catching fewer fish than you could be.
The only tricky part of the whole build is removing the stop in the coupling so that the steering handle and rudder shaft can pivot. When fly fishing, I set my rudder a little to one side then use my tiny paddle to scull me along with no noise and no flashing paddle blade.
When you have a big fish on, you can set the rudder to one side and put a lot more drag on the fish. One line on each arm of the rudder post and another through a Bimini top eye on top of the rudder post. I'll also cover a wee bit of my rigging with regards to how the yak has performed with these additional modifications.I spent months trawling forums in order to read numerous review before taking the plunge and buying myself a kayak. Top of the list, it had to be a comfortable platform to fish off, I wanted plenty of storage space plus it had to be stable. I made do without a rudder for over a year, though once I got around to fitting one there was no looking back.
Without a rudder paddling with a crosswind or cutting across a tide is a real pain in the azz.
