Matt Watsons review of the Bixpy as below was taken from his full video called Kayak Fishing Review - we will leave a link to that full video at the end of this review. 

Motors on kayaks aren’t anything new but what’s been holding people back is short battery life and that they can be difficult to mount, well no longer thanks to this clever system that is revolutionizing the concept of kayak fishing.

Bixpy solves that problem by bolting directly to your rudder blade, the small football size and… more

Getting out on the water feels primal. I’m only a year into kayak fishing and with every journey out into the ocean I grow a deeper understanding and a connection to its powerful life force. Just like me, the inhabitants of the ocean are all looking for their next meal. Using the food chain to target the Mighty King has seen some good mid-morning catches this March.
Up until recently I hadn’t exclusively fished my local spots for Kingfish using live bait. Over the summer I pulled one into the yak from the… more

Nothing beats that feeling of heading on the road for a few days away fishing and camping, Viking paddlers Jamie & Liam live for adventure on the weekends after a busy work week.

The simplicity of live baits
This kayak fishing report from Stephen Tapp and Milan from Big Angry Fish, covers the simple and effective technique of live bait fishing for kingfish from the Kayaks and how the Viking Profish tackle pod system can help you land the fish your targeting.  
As with all great fishing stories it all begins with a short notice phone call from a mate…

Trip report from sales manager Jason - First Longtail Tuna from the kayak – After many hours on the water last season trying to land a Northern Bluefin (Longtail Tuna) with no success I finally landed one this season. Thanks to a culmination of those hours on the water and advice from other Sunshine Coast anglers my first attempt this season ended up with a 9kg Longtail on the line.

Here’s the report, full video below also.

Maroochydore was boiling with Tuna so even though it was blowing 15knots… more

In this guest blog post from Paddle Guy we take a look at a different perspective on mothership kayak fishing.
Exploring the concept of kayak fishing using a trailer boat as a mothership
Here’s a different take on kayak fishing mother ship trips, yesterday fishing with my boys for Father’s Day in the 6m Fyran, I loaded the 2.7m Viking Kayaks Ozzie into the boat with the intention of using it to paddle into the shallows and gather a feed of Green Lipped Mussels.

This was a test run to… more

When ask for a trip report from Cove to Cape Stephens reply was breif --"The only story I have is a fisherman's one..."
The wind on day one (30knots gusting 40) kept us from executing "Plan-A" so we headed off to our reserve location. Here the wind can make for hard work but there are more safety options if something unexpected happens. Fishing was initially slow but not without opportunities, and unfortunately I can claim the classic "one that got away" wooden spoon award...
On the sounder I saw a beautiful arch… more

"Haku gets a new owner"
I sold my Profish 440 named “Haku” to my mate John from Hamilton. It took a long 6 months before we got the chance to get out and for him to catch his first fish off the kayak. So we headed to the Coromandel Peninsula and by mid-morning he had 2 pannies in the back and he was having a ball in the near glass like conditions.

We were having some technical difficulties with his fishfinder so decided to turn it off and use my Lowrance on my kayak to put him onto fish. And fish there… more
