Welcome to the family and the addiction. This will be the 3rd season for my 2014 PA14. I can honestly say that it may be the best investment I've ever made. I know you are going to love it.

Josh,

Welcome to the Hobie PA family and the addiction. Fished 3 decades from a high end bass boat. I don't miss it at all. This is a more enjoyable and rewarding way to fish. You have Lake Norman right up I-77 from you. Fished there many times from a bass boat. You'll find plenty of answers here from a lot of folks. Feel free to hit me up if you have questions.

I like to bass fish as well. Here are a couple of bass from this past weekend.

Thank you sir! I've been on Lake Norman before but I'm actually the lake inspector and a water treatment plant operator for the City of Monroe. We have 3 lakes that the city own's, all are within 20 minutes of me. I also have access to them year around. I work on the biggest lake, Lake Twitty through out the week.

I enjoy my bass boat but I'm really looking forward to the PA

My office view most days.

My best fishing partner, my dad with his new personal best a couple weeks ago, a 7.63 pound bucket mouth. Pulled it out of one of the City owned lakes.

That sea dek looks killer by the way! I'm sure that will find its way on the PA before long.

Nice bass pictures! I have a private 225 acre lake in our subdivision, so I can be on the water in 5 minutes. I do saltwater fish in the Gulf (Big Bend area) and inshore in the Jacksonville/St. Augustine area. It's a great saltwater platform as well. Headed down to Pine Island Sound in June with friends to kayak fish for tarpon and snook. That should be an epic trip! :D
