just make sure you have life insurance to support your family. which might not cover being stupid/life threatening action.

not sure what you mean stupid/life threatening action?


Kayaks are not designed for Port Phillip Bay.


Agreed, that's why I only fish PPB as a last resort when the conditions are no good 13km offshore at Port Mac or Portland

OK body recovery is planned for but at what cost to your family.
Most people fishing on PPB have a 2.4 beam 5metre boat that can cop a wave,
Not sink on the first I metre wave.
Just think a wave 500 mm over the top that flattens you all extra's within the kayak sink.
And the water gets very cold very quick and you think, somebodies coming for you for being a nut.
8 mins at best your dead.
Why do you rely on other people for your crazy actions.



COOL ya jets and have a beer ffs. I just read it somewhere, that this is a forum about fishing, not personal preference. Maybe you should think a little more about that.

Kayaks are not designed for Port Phillip Bay.
But for still water lakes rivers estuary.
What a salesman says and what it can do are worlds apart.
You get caught in one wind change your gone or somebody has to save your arse for a STUPID action.
just make sure you have a personnel erpib for body recovery.


Who mentioned the bay?

Baitworms in respect to your comments and voluntary career PPB on it's day is safe for a kayak same as western port or even offshore.
It comes down to understanding the area, weather conditions and limits of the craft. If I owned a kayak I would happily paddle out for a fish on PPB conditions permitting.

If a 5m boat had a 2.4m beam I'd be getting the highest possible extras cover on the private health insurance because by god you'd need every last cent spent on your back in such a boat!
