    I have that same 'yak & that's a STEAL... If you're considering it you better hurry, b/c if he puts it on C.L. it won't last a week (replacement cost for that set-up is ~$2500)
    There should be NO Commercial Fishing for any fish species considered 'Over-fished' , 'Undergoing Overfishing' or Subject to Recreational Seasons, Limits, or Closures... Game Fish Status IS the Answer !!!

    Thanks Reel. Hobie makes a fine kayak for sure. I'm not a big fan of c list but may have to move the ad over there eventually. I figured since most everyone uses their Outback for fishing this forum might be good start.

    The newer gen. Hobie Mirage 'yaks seem to hold their value well. I think Hobie made a design change ~07' ? I wouldn't want the earlier design as the locking mechanism wears out, but as 'yaks go I wouldn't have anything but a Mirage (& the Outback is my favorite 'all-around' model)
