About to be a yak owner

Hi forum - picking up a hobie outback 2020 next weekend! Finally got tired of rubbing shoulders on crowded piers.

Very excited! Also thinking of using the yak as a platform for snorkeling for scallops/spearfishing. Would love to get some hot tips on good areas for beginners.

Welcome to VYak! I'm a newbie kayak owner myself. I found plenty of useful info and advise here from fellow experience yakers.
I hope you know that you'll probably spend another grand or two pimping your new yak. ;)
Hope you catch plenty of fish.
Remember, safety first.

Thanks! I'm in Wantirna (eastern suburbs), so generally fishing around Mornington Peninsula.

Oof it's way too late... hahaha alright spent a bunch. It's surprisingly how quickly little things add up - drift chut, flag, fish finder, rod holders :lol:
