I know I must need to have my head checked...I went out without a fishing pole yesterday...

The wife and I needed some R&R time so we put the new Tandem Island in the water for her first sail. WOW...what fun and so much room on that beautiful boat...

Image

The wind was a little weak in the morning so we did some pedaling with the new 180 Mirage Drives...with two people peddling that yak really gets up and moves...I lost my hat in the wind later and we had to use the reverse drive to retrieve it...that new 180 reverse is pretty cool.

Image

It's a big kayak at 18' so it takes some effort and two people to move it around and set her up...but once she's on the water...it's nothing but FUN...!
I can't wait to get offshore and do some trolling this summer.

Forgetting the rods seems to be a common problem. I used to go fishing almost every time I went out in my Revo, but since switching to the TI I'm having so much fun sailing, I don't get any fishing in unless I'm trolling. I used to get so much pleasure just kicked back with a rod over the side, but it just isn't happening with my TI. I'm going to make more of an effort to stop, anchor up and chill a bit with the rods instead of just sailing and trolling.

Cheers
John

Exactly! I end up having to make a conscious effort to stop and fish. It ends up being "filler" for when the wind dies :)
