ask Leejo he is the expert in anchor ropes and or fishing lines around his rudder - and how do you free it hav a mate with very wet sleeves a lot of the time



:lol: I admit its happened a couple of times, however, I can summarise it as follows.
1) keep an eye out for the water flow when you decide to stop for a chat while you are trolling a couple of lures
2) dont go crazy with rods as cheater does (I have now stopped doing it). A little bit of Insider news, he carries more stuff in his kayak than my wife carries in her bag. Both end up not finding what they want :lol:
If you dont believe me try lifting his kayak, its heavier than a PA.
3) there is not much you can do when you have 3 rods and end up hooking up gummies and stingrays at the same time. :?

The issue above being discussed is one of the reasons I like the old rudder on my stealth peace of mind when dragging loading etc. Although it would not perform as well due to drag.

I think cheater was hinting to Frank that there is a mod for his style rudder (superlite), which would also infer that its possible to get a line caught from the front
Tuna 20.5kg ---Snapper 84cm --- Gummy 83cm (55cm legal) ---- Whiting 40cm --- Silver Trevelly 41cm --- Flathead 52cm --- Aussie Salmon 38cm --- Squid 34cm hood

Been watching some youtube vids of late and one from Rokkit Kit, from February mods to his new carbon fiber stealth, which made me think of this post in regards to the discussion on mounting the transducer, Ron (i think thats his name) has done a very nice job mounting his under the yak and running the wires through the yak, not quite what i had in mind but definitely looks good :up:

Rod! (Rocket Rod - Rokkit Kit) Really nice guy. Yours truly makes a brief appearance in the "Bad Weather Bonito" video before deciding not to go out due to the weather (I was in a Stealth Supalite)
Love his channel!
Yak bests ~ 108cm Gummy ~ 64cm Pinky ~ 60cm Flathead ~ 49cm Whiting ~ 31cm squid. No pelagics, yet.

I'm not sure I'd be as game as Rod to put a hole in the bottom of a ski worth almost $5,000, it puts a lot of faith in the abilities of sikaflex. Very tidy end result, but it would make me super paranoid in surf launches or any time the boat was getting hammered.
