I keep forgetting to paste the above. This is a California company. looks like they may have another option for Airstreamers....QUOTE]

Anyone put down a deposit? This looks super if you don't want to load up the roof racks. Or if you want to take your own boat to drift down the Mekong. The airlines frown on taking the 18-footers. Z

Thought I'd share my new Native Ultimate 14.5 rigged up this past weekend catching trout, redfish and sheepshead while camping at a nearby county park.

I was just giving it a bump now that they are getting close. The video they have on how the thing goes together and then folds up is pretty neat.

I been close to the Mekong before, not what I'ld want for sampan dodging, lol

Taylormade; sweet looking Native you have there,You have it tricked out nicely.What kind of video cam do you have mounted on the extension?Pretty bad when one must record their catches, no more "you should have seen the one that got away".Also noticed you're using a long paddle, one of the strong suits of your boat is the stability, it allows you to paddle standing up. nice. so where's the pics of the fish?

Lust may be a bit strong to say ...but envy - yes, that is it.
We really like the EB and are working to acquire one ...
thanks to posts like yours.

Paddle? Looks like an oar to me. Z

Zep;
you're starting to embarrass me!
Oars do not have "T" handles.
Taylormade has one of the best equipped fishing yaks I've seen.Anchor trolly,scotty mounts, maybe some yak-attack stuff,ram mount.
I'm really liking the oversize milk crate! that's the bomb!
cooler- hey where's the cooler?
some of the waterfowl guys out here are using the NU 14.5 as floating blinds.
My friend Dan @ Headwaters Kayak in Lodi is a dealer for Native and he sells a fair amount of fishing yaks.

Thanks! It's an old Kodak play sport waterproof HD recorder I had from my days of surfing and diving. It works great and when I get something worth recording, I'll turn it on and start reelin'. Plus, it makes it a lot easier to take a screen capture of the catch as evidence of the victory. I use the stand up paddle for most of my navigation because I'm standing up "scouting" for fishing spots (holes, cliffs, fish, etc). If I've got a long traverse, the kayak paddle is stored on the opposite side... kind of hard to see in that pic I suppose. The kayak is, indeed, very stable and very comfortable as well.

I didn't take any pics of my catches this trip, save for the "dinner" pic (notice the beer coozie)



The big fella was 25", while his friend was just under 20". Their tales froze upwards due to the soft cooler they were in.

Ha, an oar for an ark perhaps.

Thanks for the compliments, I've certainly enjoyed rigging it. Turns out that, in that pic, there's still another rod and the cooler to go in. I just use a soft cooler with a few 2L bottles of frozen water inside along with a handful of smaller water bottles that are frozen. Next time I go out, I'll take pics of it fully set up and share them with you.
