Hello to the forum!
Long term lurker here. Been paddling close to 10 years up here in NQ. I paddle a Mirage 580 which probably destroys a bit of credibility straight up but hey, they are an easy, comfortable and sea worthy boat. Not too far from being upgraded to a 582 with a bunch of bells and whistles and some indefensible unnecessary bling as well
Paddling territory is Whitsundays to Port Douglas, with a focus on the Palm Islands, and I have made plenty of camping trips by kayak out into the islands along this coastline. I am unusual on this forum I suspect in that my sea kayaking skills are average but I combine them with very average fishing skills to be a moderate fishing kayaker . I have had a profile in the KFDU forum for some time and have learnt a fair bit about fishing setups on small boats through there (though I don't think anyone on that forum fishes from a true sea kayak as I do).
Hope to contribute over time here and keep learning from the posts as have picked up a bit looking through these threads over the years already.
As an introduction, below is a video focused on the fishing side of what I get up to in the kayak - I think this will be quite different to what most of you have seen from a sea kayak before.
