Fishing Kayak Review by Shaun – Kayak Angler From South Australia

I’m enjoying the W500.
I did get out in the surf the weekend before last, and managed a bit of stand-up action in some 1m swell – only fell out once!
I did manage to get out on Saturday morning – the weather was good for autumn – the sea was flat and comfortable! I also used the anchor for the first time and that worked great.
I was happy to get 3 nice calamari squid in a short time. The largest is 35 cm total mantle length.
I’m still not that game to go too far offshore – about 500m is my limit so far.
