  • Kayak anchoring options

    There is one piece of equipment all kayak anglers will need at one time or another to make their day less stressful on the water - an anchor. Let’s face it - wind and current are never going to go away, and there are not enough days where the winds are less than 5 mph. The choice is simple: stay home and do housework, or go fishing and use an anchor system to your advantage to combat the conditions and catch fish. Read More

Canoe Kentucky
"We have been going to Canoe Kentucky from day one. They were our first stop after having an interest in kayak fishing. Back then the shop was 90% white water 10% kayak fishing. Boy how things have changed. While Canoe KY still has whitewater it’s now more evenly split in the store. Their shop is right on the Elkhorn Creek which is prime smallmouth waters and they offer shuttles up and down the creek and multiple take..."
ACK (Austin Kayak)
"It’s easy to have great customer service when everything is running smoothly and you don’t have any hiccups. I received a bow skirt for my Native Watercraft Ultimate 14.5. The seam on the skirt was defective and I thought ACK was going to direct me to Native for a warranty return as it clearly wasn’t their fault the skirt was damaged. NOPE I called and talked to the customer service rep and they ask that I email..."
YakAttack "CellBlok"
"The Good - The YakAttack CellBlok does a great job a managing your fishfinder, battery, transducer, and cables into a portable system that can be easily transported between multiple kayaks. I needed a solution for using a single fishfinder on multiple kayaks and he CellBlok solved this issue. It is easy to attach to any to any kayak that has tracks with a turn of two thumb screws. The battery is stored securely with enough wiggle room to hide the..."

Slip Discs Make It Better!

The Scotty No. 415 Slip Discs will tune as finely as you can dial it in.

A typical Scotty gear has teeth on both sides. The Slip Discs have teeth only on one side. What this allows you to do is make micrometer like adjustments up and down to find the perfect angle on that rod holder. These can be used with all the other Scotty mounts that have gears in them as well. The only thing you are really giving up is that iron clad security of teeth on both sides. With enough force the Slip Discs will do exactly that, slip. That's what they are made for. With a hand tightened nut on a rod holder or extension, in almost all applications, the 415 will be good to go.

I started kayak fishing with Scotty rod holders almost a decade ago. I fished them more because of the price point difference than because of functionality. There were other rod holders that had better adjustability but they were twice the cost. I knew the Scotty rod holders and extenders were clunky. The angles never seemed what I really wanted and so I eventually stopped using them. With the release of the Offset Gears and the Slip Discs, Scotty is going to get another shot on my kayak. The price point on Scotty products is already hard to beat and with these newest additions, affordability and functionality are both part of the new equation. If you are looking for a way to fine tune your Scotty products and your fishing, this is it,
