    nice setup Paul :yes:

    south landing is a good free launch at all except a big low water, where its a bit of a hard drag :wounded:

    you might need a tiller extension with that setup mate :wink: you will be suprised how fast it is !!

    Yes I was just looking at yours. At the moment there will be two of us until I'm more confident. So it should help keeping the front down.
    I run the engine up today and can't believe how quiet it is. I need to get some sea time until the engine is fully run in.
    What size anchor do you think I would need. I thought something around 4kg or is that too light

    Paul after a bit of research I went for a bruce type anchor around 2 kg like below. Its held me in a decent sea and wind with 6mm warp out around twice the depth :yes: I used around 3 metres of chain though

    What tackle do you guys use when SIB or kayak fishing? I've fished from my sib a few times but never had much success. I use the same rods, reels and rigs/methods as I do when normal boat fishing but maybe I've got it all wrong? Any advice?

    I use the same stuff as on my Yak which is fairly light tackle.

    I have a pair of 6.5 ft solid carbon fladden spinning rods rated to 35g ( think they have stopped making them now )

    paired with shimano 8000gte baitrunners and 20lb braid :yes:

    They will comfortable Jig with 3oz leadheads and small pirks up to 4-5oz which are more than heavy enough coupled with the thin braid.

    I use the same rods for bottom bait fishing with 3/4 oz leads, also trolling for pollack and even plugging for bass !!

    I do prefer light tackle fishing though I have to say.

    Hmmmm, think I might invest in some lighter gear. Perhaps the 20lb class boat gear isn't the way to go!
