The Wavewalk® 700 SeriesThe Wavewalk® 700 is a trailer-free, two person fishing boat that a single user can easily car-top, paddle, and motorize on their own. Two full size anglers can fish out of it in tandem, as well as paddle it with either dual-blade (kayak) paddles or single-blade (canoe) paddle. This boat's unrivaled stability allow for both fishermen using it to stand up, and it can be outfitted with a powerful outboard motor of up to 5 hp. No more driving to boat ramps, or waiting in line for either launching or beaching. No more maneuvering either - You can launch this small and lightweight craft form a dock or from any beach, including beaches where the water is too shallow for ordinary motorboats, since this boat is so easy to paddle and push-pole. Similarly, the Wavewalk® 700 lets you fish in fisheries where vegetation abounds, whether you're fishing by yourself of with a fishing buddy. This is made possible by simply pulling the outboard's propeller out of the water, and continuing to use the craft as a tandem kayak, or a canoe. And last but not least, unlike kayaks, this boat is a totally back pain free paddle craft, thanks to its saddle, which allows for its passengers to ride comfortably, as they would with a jet-ski (personal watercraft) or an all-terrain vehicle (ATV).

Featured Article: The Realization of the Stand-Up Kayak Fishing Dream
Fishing standing in a kayak used to be dismissed as an impossibility, and didn't receive much serious attention in the fishing kayak community. Fishing kayak manufacturers, knowing they couldn't effectively offer this as an option, tried to play down the idea as ‘unnecessary’ and claimed it conflicted with the idea of ‘classic kayak fishing’. However, in view of an expanding demand for stable fishing kayaks, fishing kayak manufacturers realized that they somehow needed to think up some kind of response. They began selling increasingly wide sit-on-top (SOT) fishing kayaks that became increasingly cumbersome and difficult to paddle, a very impractical approach. Nevertheless, these ludicrous designs were promoted as being stable enough to allow stand up kayak fishing. Some anglers fall for this hype, but sooner or later they come to the realization that although the new, ridiculously wide fishing kayaks were indeed more stable than the narrower models, to an extent, they still weren't nearly stable enough to allow for fishing while standing up. This had to do with the dual lack of initial stability and secondary stability, as well as the deficiency of such kayaks in offering a ‘Plan B' solution for dealing with situations in which the angler has already been destabilized, as often occurs, and they are facing the undesirable and potentially dangerous possibility of falling overboard with their fishing gear and tackle in tow. To try and remedy the problem, some manufacturers began offering solutions that involved the utilization of kayak outriggers. Those may have moderately improved initial stability, but they still failed to solve the problem of "what if?" – that is what should the angler do if they suddenly lose balance in their kayak, and are forced to fall overboard – an event sarcastically referred to as ‘going swimming’. Insofar, Wavewalk Fishing Kayaks are the only fishing kayaks that provide satisfactory initial and secondary stability, as well as a solution in case the standing kayak angler loses their stability. This effective stand-up stability is achieved through a combination of optimal ergonomic design that maximizes kayak stability as well as the incorporation of a saddle that the angler can fall on if necessary, and regain balance instantly. With the advent of this solution, anglers finally have a fishing kayak from which they can fish standing up comfortably, easily, and with the peace of mind that they are safe in case anything goes wrong. The Wavewalk Kayak has made stand-up fishing not only much more practically and easy to do, but also an enjoyable activity that can be done by even an amateur angler.

John Fabina, from Brew City Kayaks, Wisconsin, found the formula for getting the big ones without traveling long distance for it. Says John:
-“Big bass like this lurk in lakes that receive little fishing pressure. Boats and regular kayaks are not able to reach these types of water that the Wavewalk can access. I am able to maneuver over objects such as bogs and logs and tight spots. Being able to stand also comes in handy while looking for fish and pockets in shallow water. I find these fish factories by checking satellite photos and maps. The Wavewalk kayak does the rest. It is not surprising that these lakes, ponds and streams hold quality fish. The amazing part is that they can be so close to urban areas.”
As simple as that!
First step: Intelligence and Reconnaissance,
Second step: Just owning the right fishing kayak, and knowing how to use it.
And if you think it’s just an urban myth, go to John’s blog, and watch the video of the big largemouth bass he caught this way! Continue reading
