Pulled the trigger on new Yak

20 some years ago I went up to the only Midwest store where I could find a Kayak, Rutabagas up in Madison and bought a 'Rebel' for $500.

It served it's purpose, fished the 4Lakes Ponds in Lisle day and night, lot's of fun..

 

Well after this summers attempt to fish the fox fish with the ISA I realized it was time for an upgrade.... something not too heavy, built for the rivers, able to track so I can fight back upstream and make do in still water and I needed it by early spring so I can tag along on the Sylvania trip....

 

The 2016 Cuda 12 on $200 off end of year closeout from our friends at RockTown Kayak.

Had to get the wife to sew some 2" Nylon straps to upgrade the ceiling mount.

Congrats! I see the 2016 model comes equipped with a wading boot to slowly work your way down stream. Neat!

 

OMG..took me a bit to catch that, but once gotten, I laughed for some time :-)
