Hi from clifton springs

Hi everyone,
Bought a dragon pro fisher, the other day to see if yak fishing was for me, well after reading the posts on safety, diy and a few others started a list of things to make and buy. After waiting for a calmer day, yesterday I launched for the first time at swan bay just a trial run to get a feel for the yak, l thought i would just paddle up to the end of the pier and hang around there, l was enjoying myself so much l decided to go back to the car and get my rods, l stayed about 40-50 mtrs out from the pier and enjoyed a great afternoon catching lots of king george whiting although most were just under size it was about the fishing and yaking not the fish.
After reading about all the things you can do with a yak, now my thoughts are on upgrading to one more suited to diving as well, after I've become accustomed to kayaking an sure l have covered everything for safe operation of my kayak.
Thank for all the diy projects and leads for equipment.
