Kaku Kayak Wahoo 12.5
"This is my second kayak purchase, after starting to kayak fish about 3 years ago. After getting my feet wet with my previous kayak (as well as the rest of me, after tipping over!), I was ready for an upgrade. The Kaku Wahoo proved to be worth every cent. I knew what I wanted in a kayak when I started to shop for a new ride. Originally, the field consisted of about 12 kayaks. Gradually, each one..."
Wild River State Park
"We rented a paddle in campsite through the State Park. The launch works well and is in good shape for canoe/kayak landings. The water was very high and fast during our trip so I wasn't able to get a good gauge on the fishing in that stretch of the river. Shuttle and Rental services are offered and available through the State Park. "
Interstate State Park
"This is an awesome and scenic stretch of the St. Croix River. Those wanting to rent a kayak or canoe and/or arrange shuttle service to pick you up and return you to your vehicle can work through Wild Mountain who operate out of the park. I will post a link to their website for those looking for more information: https://www.wildmountain.com/taylors-falls-canoe-kayak-rental."

Once it drained I was able to turn it over an see that the seams in 4 of the scupper hole had completely separated. I get it can be faulty product,however I cant get over the lack of resolve from..."
Dragonfly "Techie 12'"
Brian Hungerford
"I bought my Techie right after they came out. For those that like to stand and fish it provides a lot of "walk around" space. Pretty fast to paddle, probably due to the light wait. It can be tough on windy days though. Pros include the ample deck space, nice hatch, light carry weight and ability to sit or stand with an engle cooler added on. A few con's - one is it can be..."
Jackson Kayak "Kilroy"
"This is an awesome fishing kayak! I am not going to rehash all the accolades and praises others have heaped onto the Jackson Kilroy. If you own one, have ever owned one, or have fished one, you know what I am talking about. Is it a good off shore or whitewater boat? NO!!! Is it the best all around fishing kayak that I have ever used for inshore, large lakes, flowing rivers. Absolutely. This boat has room for..."
