I have a little 8’ runs shallow and a 5hp tiller. Would there be anything wrong with this setup in Galveston East Bay? Kayakers run the flats and marshes that’s what I’m planning on doing. I’ve had it middle of lakes with less than favorable winds and felt safe.

Nothing wrong with it as long as you use common sense.

A good rule of angling philosophy is not to interfere with another fisherman's ways of being happy, unless you want to be hated.
