Myself, Cudadude, and Lasthurrah decided to fish Bear Creek which feeds into Benbrook Lake. This was the maiden voyage for the new Cuda and it didnt disappoint. It performed flawlessly and the rudder is a must have for drift fishing. I was able to drift and fish while never touching the paddle using only the rudder to point my craft in whatever direction I wanted it. I didnt catch any fish but Lasthurrah caught one, no worries though, it was a great day of fellowship for 3 friends. Cudadude wanted to ride it back to the launch point and needless to say a week later he purchased one for himself!
