Made a new kayak purchase it is   #nativewatercraftversaboard

Here is my take on this kayak paddle board.
it is 12.3 feet long 33 inches wide and weighs in at a whopping 55 pounds.
 very stable kayak with the elite seating by native with a swivel base that will lock in place where ever you put it or it can be flipped up and back folding out of the way enabling you to be able to stand and paddle with ease.
it is not a fast kayak in the least but it moves with ease,i can stand and fish with the help of a stand up strap i installed to help with the ease of standing ,i have pushed the seat back and i can tell you it makes it a lot more roomy if you will.
The deck is clean and open without any obstructions to get in your way,this deck would be ideal for fly fishing which i will test out soon as the weather permits .
 I can sit in this kayak for hours on end with the seating as it is the best part about this kayak is there is many different seating options,you can remove the swivel seat and mount a cooler for higher seating or put a normal kayak seat on it as well as a wedge seat by native.
 my over all opinion on this kayak is it is a great kayak and it performs better than i could have wanted,i look to add a second one to my fleet of kayaks along with 2 manta ray 14's ,neither of these kayaks will break the bank and are user friendly by all from beginner to professional 

 March is almost over and it has been a good month for sure,the red drum bite had been from cold to hot in a week or 2 and back to cool.
drum were hitting every thing we could throw at them from top waters to soft plastics and live baits,there were no shortage of fish up till now,the fish are there but with the water temps back down they are less willing to chew.
 Had the pleasure of getting a repeat customer out when things were on fire and he had the time of his life,6 drum on top waters up to 26.50 inches and he bested his personal best drum 3 times in one day with the largest being 30 inches.
 Had some friends out in the same area and in a few hours we put almost 100 drum between 3 kayaks on soft plastics JP Hammer Shads 3.6 in money and bubble gum worked very well the schools have thinned down some but they are still there and it takes time and patients now to get them to bite,but with next weeks warmer weather that will all change as they become more active with the warmer waters.
Here are some pics from the last few weeks of drum fishing and i have actually caught a flounder how ever it was short but they are showing back up as well ;)
