Milan and Lubin are out testing their new kayaks, and both kingfish and snapper come in for a play.

Milan and Lubin gear up for an early kayak fishing session off the Coromandel West coast. Milan’s kayak has been pimped up with a Bixpy electric motor, which enables him to keep the hands on the rod and not having to paddle to control the kayak movements -and a bit of assist speed once the arms are weary.

After hook ups and bust offs, Lubin gets a fish powered free ride by a big one.

Later, Lubin is off on his own adventure with the Bixpy, chasing snapper on the skutes.
