Kayak Fishing Discussion / Re: All good things must come to an end....
« Last post by Steelhead Chaser on March 01, 2019, 04:16:33 AM »
Along the years, I told to many people (yakers) about this forum and some join it.
If this forum dies, there are lots of good fishing forum were we can find refuge.
One of them is: http://www.lakesimcoeoutdoors.com/forums/
We can ask the admin there to create a dedicate section just for us the yakers.

Soft water season is around the corner, will be good to decide what we are doing by then.

Lake simcoe message board has a kayak section

Signed up for this over 2 weeks ago and still no admin has logged on to approve it. Not a good start nor am I impressed.... Honestly debating creating a Southern Ontario Kayak Anglers page on FB. Just not sure how much traffic it will bring.

There's always canadiankayakanglers.com, Mike, but the problem lies with the users not the forums. It seems pretty much everyone wants to use facebook groups rather than the forums, which is a mystery to me because the forums are so narrowly focused on our kayak fishing addiction which is why I have always liked yakfisher.

Thanks for posting the link-its a hit hard to find without the link.

Nice that there is something but not sure it can replace the existing wealth of knowledge stored here and the organization of all the different sub sections.

I suppose it can grow into it.  I still dont have fb so i need some form of social media to have any clue what’s happening event-wise!

Me neither and mine's a 2009 or 10. All I've ever done is straighten the front mast a couple of times and tighten the drive cables a bit when they start to squeak. I'd be careful about lubricating it cause the oil or grease would capture any sand or dirt it came in contact with and possibly get in the drive mechanism. Check with Fogh first, I'd say.

I've never taken mine apart. 2015. Maybe I should.

Hobie Kayaks / Mirage Drive Maintenance
« Last post by Adam on February 18, 2019, 01:42:03 PM »
I recently picked up a 180 drive conversion kit for my 2016 Mirage drive as I had some leftover credits with Fogh Marine. The parts required were:

81527002 – MD180 Spine Assembly
81501112 – MD180 Turbo Fin Mast/Boom Kit

The swap was quite easy, assuming you’ve fiddled with your Mirage drive in the past. Overall, it took me about an hour and a half to swap over. The most time consuming part was the cleaning and reassembly of all the drum and idler pulley roller bearings.

I was quite surprised as to how little lubrication remained in the drum bearings. I could see some excess grease on the outside, but when you remove the drums off the shaft, there was hardly anything inside.  So a tip to everyone who may have the “Glide” bearing Mirage drive, if you haven’t pulled them apart to perform regular maintenance, you may want to undertake that as a winter project to minimize future wear.

Kayak Fishing Tournaments / Re: Kayakwars 2019

Looks like website updated and allowing 2019 registration. Anyone still gonna play? Prizes have been lacking the last few seasons and updates on what's going on non existent. These last owners really did the bare minimum. Has it been sold? Or are the same guys running it. I'm still going to play regardless. It's cheap fun. I do wish that someone could take it over and make it great.
I used it for part of last year.   I didn't log everything though.  Was a good way to keep track of catches without having to dig through my phone or reorganize photos etc.
