Now where do I go for my yak fix?? Don't tell me I have to go back to facebook.  Anyone know of any other yak fishing sites for southern Ontario?  I've always enjoyed the stuff I read here and meeting a few of you as well.  Bon voyage Adam, thankyou for looking after this site.

Its been a fun ride. I haven't been here from the beginning but have enjoyed my time on this site.

I've met a ton of people and have become a better Yak angler because of this place.

Enjoy your "retirement" :-)

Well folks, it has been a good run for Yakfisher...just over a decade online. Unfortunately though, Iíve decided that six months from now, on July 1st, 2019, Iíll be shutting the site down. This date coincides with the renewal of the hosting services with our provider.

Itís been a wonderful experience running the site and meeting a lot of great anglers, so thank you everyone for that.

Iíll provide updates if anything changes leading up to July.

It is on our bucket list as well!  I've watched every video I can find on Kayak fishing Panama.  Congrats on a great trip Scotty!

That is definitely on my bucket list.  I have fished Panama before, but would love to do the kayak adventure. Congrats on a trip of a lifetime.  If they book in the summer, I would love to go, otherwise I have to wait til I retire.  Hey Rich, Doug, you up for a trip like this?  What about Dave and Karen, Jeff, Tim, and the rest of the group, man we could go and fill up the lodge. Thats where we need to do a tourny. LOL
Kayak Fishing Discussion / Panama kayak adventure

As a few of you know, I recently got back from a kayak fishing trip to Panama's wild Pacific Coast. I stayed at the Tembladera Fishing Lodge, which is waaaay off the beaten path -- an hour by panga (open boat) from the nearest road. Panama, BTW, is safe and stable, and welcoming of gringos. I've travelled a fair bit in Central America, and it was as pleasant as anywhere I've been.

And the overall experience was simply amazing--large, powerful and interesting fish, against an ocean-jungle backdrop. We caught roosterfish, yellowfin tuna, dorado (aka mahi, aka dolphinfish), pompano, jack crevalles, cubera and other snappers, trevally and other wackier stuff, too.

But it was also incredibly hard work. Pedalling those Outbacks in current, swell and wind, and chucking giant lures in the heat (not to mention trolling 5 lb live baits) really takes it out of you. All four of us in my group were just broken after the first day; but we were hard men by day 4. (Unbelievably, I came home 10 pounds lighter!)

Here's a photo report by the lodge on our week: https://panamakayakadventure.com/catch-reports/opening-week-of-the-201819-season.

The learning curve was also pretty steep, which is why I'm 100% going back again next year. I learned SO much, that if I don't go, all this knowledge will go to waste  :).

And an early heads-up, if anyone else is potentially interested in joining this trip, let me know. Now that I've done it (and made my mistakes with gear, techniques, etc.) I've got the REAL dope on what it's all about. Or even if you just have Qs, don't hesitate.

I've got more photos to post, too, once I figure out how...

Thanks Don and Tim!

Tim, I think a while back you posted about a lithium battery manufacturer that you like.  Could you repost the link here for any you recommend?


I use Bioenno Power and FVP-Power batteries, both are serving me well. The FVP-Power batteries are newer to me, the good thing with them is; you can wire them in parallel. They make a 7Ah and a 17.5Ah battery. I saw a resent re-life test with the FVP-Power 17.5Ah battery on a Lowrance Elite7 Ti, I believe he averaged around 17 hours.

Right now the only supplier of the FVP-Power batteries in North America is Mariner Sails in Texas. FVP-Power is an Australian company.

I haven't noticed the drag from my ram mount although there has to be at least some, but it does pick up weeds. Of course you can't escape collecting weeds with an external arm mount.
