I just bought a Field and stream eagle run and its a decent sit in side kayak. I came from have an Old town pack canoe and I miss it dearly. There wasn't a place I couldn't go in that canoe. Dick's sells them as the 119 discovery and the new model is the Old Town Next. Never been in the next but I'm sure its worth the 1k price.

for $500 though the eagle run is okay, only had it out a few times but I don't think ill ever be able to stand in it like i could in the old town pack.

So I caved to the peer pressure (primarily from Mase2020) and bought myself a SOT. I opted for the new Perception Pescador Pro 100 because it's 56 lbs and 10' 6", manageable for the backwoods Bass adventures I enjoy. I picked up a fiberglass 250cm Carlisle Predator Paddle to propel the new rig.

Now that I have a bit more storage room, my minimalist mentality will change slightly. "Rigged" for me will be a Cabela's tackle backpack, a modified Flambeau Dry Box with 2 added rod holders, a small landing net, 2 casting set-ups and 1 spinning set-up. I definitely need to take advantage of the YakAttack track system and get a rod and paddle holder. Despite the built in fish finder console and transducer specific scupper, I'm die hard anti-electronics in my fishing. No fish finder on this rig!

Been sick as a dog the last 2 weeks, can't wait to get this thing on the water!

You let Alan talk you into a SOT, Anthony? 🤔

Nice yak, anyway. . . . 😆

You need to hit the water, soon. The fish are waking up. Of course, the weather is going all to hell. If you'd like to catch some white perch, the anadromous ones are up in the rivers and coves, now. They spawn when the water gets to around 52 degrees. Hamburg Cove is a good place to go. You could launch next to the Hamburg Cove Yacht Club at 13 Cove Road in Lyme.

I can't put it 100% on Alan, but he definitely chimed in plenty. My second choice was the Jackson Kilroy (sit-in), but I didn't want to spend over a grand. In the $700 range, the Perception had the length and width I was after, a comfy seat and I love the color scheme. I'm going to give it a go and if I don't like the SOT I'll flip it on here and begin the search again.

Thanks for the fishing info. I've yet to hit Hamburg in a yak, but have heard good things. I'm eager to get up in the Nuke channel soon. I need a "test voyage" in the new boat first before I adventure out in the open river.
