Hey fellas. Just bought my first yak, a new Mad River Synergy 14' hybrid. I purchased it from Eastern Mountain Sports for only $359 NEW which is a steal compared to $749 at other stores and online so I had to snatch it. I've ready NOTHING but positive reviews for this yak. I'm looking forward to launching from SPSP and other local areas. Hopefully I'll be able to get things situated so I can launch a few times before the end of this striper season. I'm COMPLETELY new to yak fishing, especially in cold waters I'm completely lost. Any pointers and recommendations are welcome.
