Newbie from Patto

Postby swoffingdan » 04 Feb 2018, 11:15

G'day peeps. Just bought a Hobie Quest 13 after wanting to get into kayak fishing for a looong time! Live very close to the Patterson River so I'm thinking that will be my local spot. Pretty interested to head out off the beach at Chelsea, Bonbeach and Seaford to see if I can score a few flatties and the occasional pinkie too. Have taken the Quest onto Devilbend twice and that was great fun, although not too much fishing fun to be had in the middle of the day. I'm also keen to see how I go flyfishing off the Quest in PPB...anybody else into that sort of caper?
Looking forward to learning from all your experiences.

Welcome Dan, a good start is to look into the safety section and keep your eyes on upcoming trips and trip reports, the DYI section is also useful, join in and have fun ;)

Welcome to Vyak,
Enjoy the Quest & enjoy patto chasing the bream.
You won't find many of us in to fly fishing off the yak in PPB but quite a few yaks fish patto casting lures under the jetties & moorings.
Post a trip when you are going under fishing trips
You will probably several Vyakers join you at the ramp.
