We decided do a bit of kayaking today because the weather was amazing here in Wisconsin. Today we kayaked along the Kettle Moraine Loew lake unit – Oconomowoc river.
We tried a little fishing and my brother caught his first fish in a Wavewalk.
He said that these kayaks make pretty good fishing vessels…
I said you don’t have to tell me that!
We also had to do the “limbo” today to get under a bridge. Don’t try this in a conventional kayak! It may be difficult to keep your balance laying down and getting up again.

Jeanne and I hauled our W Fishing Kayaks to one of our preferred spots in Wisconsin, Door County.
The weather was phenomenal, however the wind was a nuisance for the first couple days. Wavewalk kayaks make windy days manageable, where as before we may have had to stick to hiking.
We decided to explore inland the first two days, paddling to the Mud Lake Wildlife area. It was a great area to view many varieties of birds and we had the whole area to ourselves! ( Maybe because of the high winds ). In the afternoon I fished some protected bays around the Peninsula State Park.
Day two we ventured out to the Mink River Estuary. We enjoyed beautiful skies and comfortable temps while viewing birds that were hunting for fish in the shallows, they had better success then me. We monitored weather conditions and decided to watch the sunset at Ephraim. The wind diminished slightly but we still had swells to deal with. We donned our life vests and had a spectacular evening. We had no problems with the occasional swells, the Wavewalk kayaks seemed to be in their element staying on top of the waves comfortably. Remember kayakers, always respect Lake Michigan and the Great lakes…safety first.
The last morning the seas cooperated and turned to glass. We were able to paddle out to Cave Point and enjoy what seemed to be the best water visibility we have ever had in this area.
It was a great vacation and it was made even more enjoyable by the views from our Wavewalks.
Quality vs. Quantity…
Stretching and relaxing after long hours of paddling
