Sam and his two sons, age eight and ten years old, have had many great times going out and bonding on kayak fishing trips. They’ve spent a couple weekends camping and fishing in the months of September and October. In Sept, they went to Lake Del Valle, just south of Livermore, CA. In Oct, they took the kayak to Lake San Antonio, located northwest of Paso Robles. These two pics show Sam’s two sons taking the kayak out fishing at sunrise into one of the coves at Lake San Antonio:
Sam says ”the boat is just roomy enough for me to fit myself and the two kids in the boat so we can all go fishing at once,” a great way for both this satisfied dad and his enthusiastic kids to fish at the same time.
Sam and his sons also went to Manresa State Beach just outside Watsonville, CA to go fishing, but the surf was quite large that day and Sam was worried I’d lose my tackle. So instead of fishing, they switched gears and decided to go for a joyride- not something you can do in an ordinary kayak! Sam and his 8 year old donned their life jackets and paddled out to sea, tackling waves up to four feet in height with no problem! Says Sam, “the waves were going over the top of our heads, but keeping the W500 pointed straight into them, I was able to safely paddle out through the waves.”
