What JD said. I honestly could not imagine bottom fishing in a paddle yak. Always drifting around and have to put your rod down then paddle back. But really the biggest thing is paddling 4-7 miles out. I'm in the greatest shape of my life with a super strong back an there is no way in hell I could do that and back. Even going out there with the peddle yak my legs burn a little.If you dont mind me asking, what would be the main issues for a paddler? Unfortunately I cant afford peddles at the moment so Id like to know my limitations before I jump into any future trips.
BTW The fact that you would invite a stranger to join you, peddles or not, is very nice of you :notworthy:
