I received an email from David Walls, a Quality Control Manager from another General Contractor working on Base and just around the corner from the Project I was working on. David is up working from Georgia, and wanted a new avenue to get back into fishing, specifically; he wanted to get into kayak fishing. He wanted to spend a good amount of time in a kayak testing them out to see which one he might prefer when the time was right to pull the trigger on one for him.
After being advised of his height, I decided it would be best to bring the Native Ultimate 14.5 Solo and the Native Magic 14.5 Tandem (in the Solo position) for David to demo on the water. We packed up and set out for a day of kayak fishing with hopes of fulfilling a real kayak fishing demo, with fish in the kayak. We started out the day with me in the Ultimate 14.5 and David in the Magic 14.5.
We fished long and hard without as much as a single bite. I ended up catching a small redfish while we mutually beat the water jigging jerk shad and various swim baits from DOA Cals to Berkley Gulp Pogys and Jerk Shad.
About halfway through the trip, we swapped kayaks and David paddled the Ultimate 14.5. We decided to work opposing banks of the river with David on one side and me on the other. I heard David call me and turned around to seeing his rod tip bent in the fight. He reeled in this nice flounder, his first kayak caught fish!
As the trip neared its end, David continued to put on the show, mimicking his prior retrieve method and pulling in several more flounder.
About two weeks after the trip, David emailed me to inform me his was the new owner of his own Native Ultimate 14.5! To me, there is nothing like spending quality time on the water and sharing my pure enjoyment for kayak fishing with others. It gets even better when the successful trip propels the Customer into purchasing a kayak and then them sharing with me later their own adventures.
I hope you enjoy the above fishing post and pictures and thank you for visiting AnglersNook.net! Allow me an opportunity to share my passion for kayak fishing with you in my next trip here on the Crystal Coast!
