A timeless review of the Wavewalk 500

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.

Most Reliable Fishing Kayak

The W kayak worked great, again.

Mountain Fork River, Southeast Oklahoma – More fun than anything. Fished, chased snakes, beavers, gar, turtles, and more.
The W fishing kayak intrigues all sportsmen.

Two Sand Bass Fighting For Same Kayak Fisherman’s Lure, Texas

People always have to ask about the W fishing kayak… and I tell them to get one. I now have rigged a Minn Kota electric trolling motor that works great for positioning an runs to a spot or back to dock.
The picture is two sand bass that were fighting for the same bait. Not too big but fun! This was 4/27/12 in Lake Ray Hubbard a few miles from my house. With the W, I can through it on the back of the F150 and get a 2-3 hour fishing trip in before dark..

“This seat sits a little higher, and it’s much more comfortable than the rigid seat I had added before.”
