  • 5 Easy DIY Kayak Storage Ideas

    Owning a kayak is great for the freedom it gives you to go out on the water whenever time and weather permits you.

Jackson Kayak "Cuda HD"
" Enough time probably has not passed yet to call the original Cuda design a classic, but who cares? To me it is. Jackson has taken this classic Cuda design and given it a facelift. As the kayak fishing industry grows, there's become a greater demand for kayaks designed with stability being a priority. While the original Cuda was a very efficient paddling kayak, only a few anglers felt stable enough to stand in it. Along with other new design elements..."
Bending Branches Angler Pro - Never Look Back
" As a competitive kayak fishing tournament angler I am a big believer in the importance of having a quality paddle while fishing. Other than your kayak and your PFD, it is the next most important piece of equipment you can have on the water.

"I personally will not use another paddle (unless Bending Branches finds a way to outdo themselves). Worth every penny. Built to perform and last. Check out the video of climbing rapids with the Angler Pro here: https://youtu.be/oaWgxFs9do4"
Jackson Kayak "Mayfly"
"I just spent 4 days in the new Jackson Kayak “Mayfly.” The first thing I noticed about the Mayfly is the extremely low side profile. This really helped in the wind and keeps the kayak from getting blown about. It will make for extremely easy deep water reentry as well (I will test that on purpose when the water warms up). The very next thing I noticed is the open deck. I mean this is a beautiful, flat, wide open..."
