Hi all , I thought id say hi and introduce myself, Im Ade , 49 years young, and live in the UK and just ordered a MR 11 in camo for use in the harbor and inshore fishing I thought I would give this kayak fishing thing another go, I tried last year but didnt like the unstable feeling I got. Hopefully this will be remedied by the MR 11, Just cant wait to get my hands on it, Its due to me on 7-9 jan:) Ade

Welcome to the forum and as a soon to be Native owner. Hope to hear that your Manta Ray was just the thing to remedy your enjoyment of paddle fishing. -Philip

Welcome! It would be interesting to know what kayak you had your first go 'round, the reason it turned you off kayak fishing. I have a Manta Ray 14 and I love this boat. Paddles well, fast, and has a very comfy seat.

The first boat was a perception freedom .I found it quite unstable in a choppy sea and the kayak spat me out on the beach when landing which hurt my pride aswell as my elbow and then having to phone the wife up to come and give me hand getting it all up the shingle beach.:oops: At that time I decided to get rid of the yak and get a small 17 ft boat, I enjoyed it at first but kept thinking about what I liked and disliked about kayak fishing. I liked the freedom to go where and when I liked, Load and unload the car on my own, get to places I couldnt in a boat, and just to be at one with my thoughts and nature. I didnt like the stability issues,the yak had already spat me out once Some sailing dinghy capsised his boat onto mine whilst it was on a mooring doing a fair bit of damage and didnt leave details so I decided to sell the boat and give Kayaking another try However this time I will be fishing most of my time in a harbour with very flat water, My main launch site is very sheltered and as such has no breaking waves to throw me out and I intend on using outrigger stabilisers aswell as a small electric trolling motor If I cant get on with the MR11 then I will give up completely and just shore fish Ade
