Nothing against your Canoe because I use to own one and lost it years ago.. long story... but there is no comparison to fishing out of a Yak and a canoe... in a canoe you are constantly bothered by the wind far more than in a yak, your balance and maneavuerability isn't as good and a 50lb thrust trolling motor might as well be an anchor because it wouldn't help you keep up with someone paddling a yak and the battery would die out before you get so tired from paddling in a yak that you couldn't continue. I don't know about the other guys on here but I know I can out paddle a 12 foot alluminum with a 4hp motor and not tire out.

If you are thinking of a yak.. you should go with your gut and get it. You won't be disappointed I can tell you that.

I'm just worried that when they (PETA) are done with the baby seal clubbers, we sport fishermen will move up their list of priorities.

Remember Senators, Judges, President and PM also fish but don't think anyone of them hunt baby seals..  It is like green peace going after the golfers, more and more courses are open each year because the ones with power to change/make the law golf or fish.

 I moved over from a 12ft sportspal, recently gave it to my daughter and her fiance, the thing paddled like a brick compared to the kayak, I'm not going back.

hi

i do still own 2 canoes.

a old scott and an old wooden canoe that i love them both still.

a canoe as some advantage over a kayak..is some situation..if you go camping..tons off room.

tons off room to moves your legs and bring stuff.

in big open water it might not be as good as a kayak but for smaller lakes and river canoe is plenty good and a few off them you can stand up easyly in them for sight fishing.

canoe as it place and it always gone to be.

actualy here in canada there way more canoe out there then kayaks way more.

go in the parcs..verendry..any parks..canoe rules.

you can rig a canoe same as those kayaks no prob.

just that the indutry is pushing the kayaks now.

Here is a link I found quite a while ago that has some nice ideas for making the canoe more fishable and stable..

Well I read this post, and i need to come Clean
Hello,
My name is John, and im a converter.
i have been sitting in a Canoe for 20+years, and after 1 year of being in a Kayak, i doubt ill ever go back
Canoe, you were a great companion, but there comes a time in ones life that you have to say enough is enough.  I want to thank you for your help.
Id like to say it was me, and not you, but.... yes, it was you.  Kayak just does more for me than you could.  Please dont take it as an insult, but youre too fat and heavy for just one person (which is how i prefer to be on the water). 
Its been approximately 250days since ive been in a Canoe, and counting.
Thank you for listening

Canoes rock....and so do kayaks. A matter of preference. I prefer my kayak as I'm usually a solo angler and I find it to be a much more intimate method of fishing.....not to mention faster. My canoe will always have it's place though and it is much better suited for freshwater tripping. All things said and done, every fisherman should have both!!! Grin.

I've got a 16' kevlar that I use with a 2hp yamaha up north on back lakes in the Port Loring area.  It's a lot easier hauling that canoe on my shoulders for a 30min portage than my kayak.  Although my yak is much more stable than the canoe.

Just finishing off the mounting of my new colour fishfinder on my yak.
