Paddle in Texas

Post by Snook » Sun Feb 27, 2011 8:17 pm

Hello every one out there.

I just bought my AE a week ago, and it is awesome. I never expect such an experience. And also I found this incredible forum. I never figured out that this activity was so popular. I had read a lot of post in this forum and I am impressed.

Let me share with you a short video of my first try.

That's a great video - and a nice catfish to go with it! Looks similar to some of the ones we get over here!

Welcome to the forum - there's a load of useful information here, shared by a great community. Looking forward to more of your adventures!

Nice video. One point though, you seem to have your paddle upside-down. I went to a local kayak club, and asked about the asymmetric blades, and apparently the pointier-end points up. Any logos/writing would be the right way up that way too.

Good point JimD ... LOL ... you are a very good observer ... I noticed that when I was editing the video and after seeing some videos in this forum.

I promise not to do it again. LOL

I am so sorry Pearly. Here, in the US, there is no problem with the sound. I will try to chose other music in the future :(

Excellent! Another fine - and amusing - production!

I was wondering if you remembered to take your rods on the water! It's always the one that got away that keeps you wanting more!!

Thanks Pearly,

The worse part of the story is that I saw the fish jumping out of the water, while I was picking up the camera, it spat the lure :(

They must be the same as the Barramundi we get here - keep the tension on or lose the fish! I had a huge Barra jump out to one side of me, but the line went slack as it swam back toward the yak. As it jumped the other side of me, on slack line, there was my lure, no fish attached!

:evil:
