Some kayak anglers have the gift of being able to express themselves very clearly and thoroughly, and some do it exceptionally well. Some kayak fishermen have a sense for observing things in detail, and for drawing meaningful conclusions. Others suffer from various physical disabilities and problems, including severe ones.
This big and tall, elderly and disabled kayak fisherman from Texas belongs to these three categories, and he wrote a review of the Wavewalk 500 that’s classic in the sense that it’s encompassing and interesting, as well as painfully personal.
On top of this, the author of this review shows his W500 that he rigged intelligently.
This review is a highly recommended reading for anyone who likes to fish and suffers from back pain.
Where to get the best fishing kayak in New Zealand?
New Zealand has a lot to offer as far as fishing is concerned. The country has many lakes and rivers that abound with fish. Kayak fishing has been gaining in popularity in New Zealand, although many local anglers are not particularly enthusiastic about fishing from such notoriously unstable and uncomfortable boats. But this situation is now changing, as W kayaks are available locally for testing and purchase.
If you want to learn more about kayak fishing in New Zealand, or if you’ve already decided that you want to get yourself a fishing kayak, you’d probably want to visit Dennis’ fishing kayak dealership. The store is located in Hamilton, in the Northern Island, within a short short driving distance from Auckland.
W fishing kayaks are available the southern island as well, at Murray’s dealership in Nelson.
Dennis and Murray are seasoned kayak fishermen with considerable experience both in freshwater and offshore fishing, and they outfit the kayaks locally, so you can purchase a customized kayak from them or take advantage of their expertise and outfit your own kayak by yourself.
The battery for the motor is located in the front, between the hull tips, in special wooden box Randy made.

I took the W fishing kayak out yesterday to test my new anchoring system. I made a few casts and thought I’d hooked the bottom until it took off. This guy was a load to bring in. Fortunately, I managed to avoid his stinger while retrieving my jig.
