I had been thinking about purchasing a kayak for a long time. I was sitting on the couch one day looking at them on Facebook Market Place and was going to buy a used one. Christina surprised me with a new Lifetime Yukon Angler 116. I can say I have the best wife ever!
Surprisingly, it came in at $498.00. Suddenly, I was in the kayak bass fishing. Christina purchased the kayak from WAL-MART Stores. The Lifetime Yukon Angler 116 came with a comfortable backed chair and paddle. I was ready to hit the water for my first bass fishing trip from the kayak. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K_IOUdpwj34&t=29s
Rather than buying a crate, I went into my shed and found an old milk crate. I plundered throughout the shed a found one on a shelf and just like that I was surprisingly in business.https://amzn.to/3cARQZI
After letting the crate dry in the South Georgia heat, in case you did not know it is HOT, I strapped it in the back of the kayak and it fit perfectly. Without delay, I threw my Plano boxes in the crate and instantly a success. Immediately, a one-man fishing machine was ready to hit the pond and catch some fish.
First Trip Out
On my first trip out the kayak was an overall experience. Obviously, hoping not to flip and lose all my tackle, rods and reels and my cellphone was the challenge. I had never been in a kayak, especially trying to catch fish out of one. To clarify, the good ole’ wind is not a friend in a kayak.
To summarize, catching only one 14-inch bass on the first outing in my Lifetime Yukon Angler 116 was quite a challenge and definitely fun. Subscribe to my Youtube Channel for all kayak bass fishing excursions.
