I’m moving from a condo to a villa with a double car garage.Yeah! I’m a FBC member and fish a lot in their boats. But I always liked the quietness and simplicity of a canoe. I have two canoes, an aluminum canoe and a Kevlar up north in Ohio. I have always wondered how come I never see anyone with a canoe, or fishing out of a canoe on the ICW and tributaries? I’m trying to decide which one I should bring down. In canoes you have plenty of room for your gear. Can stand up and it paddles easy. The aluminum is a 17ft Grumman that might be to big. And has lap noise. The Kevlar is 14 ft. Opinions and comments welcome.

A shame about the weight. I’ve pretty much given up kayak fishing since I have a real struggle lifting it onto the J hooks atop my Jeep after four hours of paddling. I can’t get a modern truck in my garage, so that’s not an option. The back fin design on this thing looks great. Please let us know if you run across something similar, but lighter and perhaps shorter. I looked on the Kaku website and this seems to be their only model.

Thanks for doing a review on this one! Do you ever have any issues putting an anchor pin in or taking it out on a paddle board? Similar to a kayak with a rope or whatever, is it hard to lean out to the very edge and pull it up?

I use an anchor pin with my paddle board (I use the Vibe maverick 120 which is very similar). You definitely want to be careful pulling up the anchor pin, especially if its in the bottom pretty good. I always try to pull it up with one hand and lean the opposite direction. If it is stuck, just try spinning it and pushing it back and forth until it comes free. I don’t recommend trying to grab it with both hands and yank it up. You’ll end up pulling yourself overboard which I have come close to doing myself.

I demoed the wahoo and Voodoo last weekend and was impressed. I’m 350 pounds and the wahoo held me fine although I don’t think I’d stand in it. The Voodoo on the other hand was amazing, I liked everything about it.
