We used to fish a lot of holidays at St Lucia lake. We would hand-line for live bait. The trick was not to let the bait get to the bottom otherwise you would just catch Nondies. The live bait we where after was was glass nose. I am not sure what the real name is. But it was deadly. You could sometimes catch them at night during full moon. The trick was to catch them and put a hook through the anal fin area and then cast them a bit away from the boat and wait. You could feel when a fish had picked up the live bait. Salmon and springer was what we would catch with them.
The rig I would use was a fly rod with a small scarborough reel. It was such fun with that light tackle and you could fight the fish almost with your bare hands. You are the one in control of all the push and pull on the line.
The Kraken kayak can be used with simple fittings for a quick recreational paddle, or it can be custom fitted for any touring or kayak fishing application. Don’t forget about the family so just take them with you on the Kraken kayak. A flat deck allows for infinite seating positions, storage options and makes a great surface for standing on.
This is an ideal kayak for the person that wants to do all your own DIY. I think I would fit into this group. If you need some ideas check out this facebook group kayakdiy
The other route is to explore the options with Brian from Legend Kayaks and create a water craft that is going to do everything and anything for you. Brian is very creative and fishing is his passion. So he is the right man to speak to.
