Figured I would share some success on my new PA. About to deploy for the 2nd time and I have been attempting to get the need to fish handled but I realize its impossible. So here are some pictures. I have videos of me fishing with my buddy on the back of the PA at the same time. I find with a nice kayak seat and some balance it is easy to accommodate a friend on the back. Otherwise the PA is fantastic. After this deployment I will be moving down to Ft. Rucker AL and plan on doing some serious fishing down there including launching off Panama City beaches.

Caught this fish today. One of the biggest I have ever caught. Used a black senko with blue flake weightless texas rigged. 14lb Flouro leader on 40lb braid.

Hey Helo man!
What's your function within the Helo?
Driver or gunner?
That Apache is one bad machine!
I fell out of many perfectly good aircraft in the middle of the night as a 'trooper with the 82nd.
Always felt good having that big gun nearby.
Nice pics!

Best of luck with your deployment.
Watch your "six".
Many thanks!!!

Hey Helo Man... You may have already taken the strap off, but in the picture with the extended arm there are two loops. A strap across the PA is a good idea to keep the yak center on the arm... Make sure not to tighten the strap down to tight...

Good luck in AL...

Good stuff with the strap on the nose. I usually do not put that strap on and make sure not to tighten it too much. Right now my poor yak is in the car of my father until I return from Afghanistan.

I am good for both pilot and shooting. Things are going well over here. Cant wait to get home and get to fishing though.....
