    Bought a Kayak and can confirm I've only used it maybe 5 times in the last 5 years

    •  

      I figured the same would happen to me, so I am trying to work out how much fish I would need to catch to offset the purchase price. Probably not a lot considering quality flathead fillets were >$50/kg last time I was at the fish monger, but probably need a better kayak than this for fishing.

        I catch about $300 worth of seafood per day on the weekends/public holidays. (Local rules for open season on certain species).

        I only catch what I'll eat over the next few days and I'm only actively looking for food for an hour. The rest of the time I'm looking for things to poke with the go pro.

          Nice. Is that from kayak or boat? Sounds like you're just about pro. Even when I went out every weekend I was lucky to catch $300 worth in a month, although I was land based.
          Edit- abs and cray, you a diver?

            @mapax: I dive and fish. Kayak. No boat.

            Rod and reel is for fun. If I want to guarantee my feed, I jump in.

            I'm no pro. I fish with pros and I'm no pro.

            I can only stay under ~5m of water for 45 seconds before I start resurfacing. My mates are well into the two minute mark.

              @tshow: Shark bait though. I'd rather stay in a boat … or kayak.

                @JediJan: Lol. I hear ya but the sharks are not the problem. It's the rays that tail you because of the smell of abalone. I always take one extra to throw behind me on the way back to yak or shore.

                Like a postie getting rid of that rabid Pomeranian.

                Bad catch today. All black lips and no cray. Big swells. Missed all the good fish. :( $150 bag.

    Thanks op, this is perfect for strapping to my roof racks permanently so I give the illusion that I occasionally venture outside.

    Have 3 of these and ask of them have failed back rest clips

    •  

      I remember this issue being posted last time. We're you able to repair it?

      Why did you keep buying them with the seat issue?

      I'm considering one if I can make it work.

    •  

      I'm 6foot and if I sit in mine I can have my legs straight just touching the end of the foot rest. I imagine you will sit with a slight bend in your knees.

    If I'm 6'5" tall, how big a Kayak do I need?

    •  

      Kayaks are like cars. Unless you are outside the specified dimensions, they're not sized.

      • +2 votes

        Not sure what that means, there are a LOT of cars I don't fit in all that comfortably. I've been in rental Kayaks where my feet dangle, and larger kayaks where they don't.

        •  

          Sorry, don't have anything to recommend that isn't in the realms of this price range.

          I have a few Stealth kayaks. I'm sure the Profisha 575 will fit you.

      I mostly use old windsurfer boards for paddlings out to islands etc.
      The main issues are can they handle my weight. And how heavy the board is, eg 25+ kg.
      Basically, you have to try them out first, or have a return policy if you're not happy. Or else buy second hand with the same options.
      I've had mostly flops and used the flops only a couple of times.

      Bit of a late reply, but my 6'5" son paddles one of these - http://in2kayaks.com/perception-tribe-11-5/ Even at that height he has one extra set of foot rests beyond where his feet naturally rest. They're definitely more expensive than the offer above, but the quality is far higher (decent thick plastic, not thin stuff that'll collapse or not stand up to years of being stored outside). Perception have been making quality kayaks for decades, I think they made one of the first plastic kayaks I used about 30 years ago. Anaconda's 'own brand' kayaks are made to be cheap and the quality really suffers.

    any feedback for this one

  •  

    Does it come with a paddle?

    •  

      When I was looking at buying a kayak last year, none of the anaconda kayaks came with a seat or paddle.

      We purchased at a slightly higher price. Did not come with paddle. Also needed to purchase life jacket. Have used the two we purchased once and for the casual use we expect to do was happy with purchase so far. Does come with a fold up/down back rest that which has adjustable angle via straps.

    Sit on top kayak…..pass

    •  

      Sit on top works for myself and daughter, our casual use and inexperience is perfectly suited to this. If we tip over (not sure how we would on the flat water we go into) I feel more confident knowing it's not going to filled with water to point of safety problem.

  •  

    thanks - bought 1 last night and a lifetime one. The seaflow isnt UV stabilised. Both are super light and were easy to load up on the car. I also have a super heavy tandem one - missus hates it with a passion as it needs both of us to lift it and a real hassle.

    It all rapidly adds up though, you'll need paddles and potentially life jackets. I've also got a kayak trolley - probably not needed on this one (the seaflow actually has a wheel at the end). Useless in the sand, but hey, its light enough to carry

    If this is how you justify buying a Kayak to use for recreational fishing you should rethink it….it's $150 for Chrissakes.

    The SIT Kayak is the safest and best for fishing.Easy access and unsinkable.

    I've got a similar one and it's great for calm river paddling, but not really suitable for ocean paddling (unless you like swimming!)

    You can build a trolley for it for almost no money, if you can scrounge an old pram or similar and have some PVC pipes around: https://www.instructables.com/id/Simple-foldable-kayak-troll...

    Got a couple of paddles from Kogan to go with my kayaks. Cheapest by far that I could find which can be offset and had the water guard

      The true Ozbargain way would be to make your own paddles: find some tennis-racquets from hard rubbish and cover them in some of the surplus grocery plastic bags you have hoarded under the laundry sink. Instant paddles!

      Come to think of it, you wouldn't buy a Kayak anyway, but simply tape together random bits of Styrofoam from all the packing you've kept (just in case you might use it ;)) until you have a suitable white vessel. Why pay for it?

      :)
