What I love about this picture...

2 paddle kayaks and one Mirage. This pretty much sums it up. Only one of the guys is fishing. I know they are just heading in... but still. :)

thats how it always is, they paddle I fish. I tend to get most of my bits while trolling, if i was having to paddle i would pass over the fish 90% of the time!
