  • Bowfishing Part V -Why?

    This is likely to be the most controversial piece I have ever written. For whatever reason, proponents and opponents of bowfishing tend to be some of the most colorfully passionate people I run across. There are folks that want to completely shut down bowfishing, and I think that would be a major mistake. Read More
  • LED Light Installation

    Since there are many different brands of LED lights for kayaks, it’s nearly impossible to cover all the ins and outs of installing them all. Instead of trying to tackle that, I’ve opted to give you some “tricks of the trade” from a guy who has installed more than a dozen kits for different kayaks. At the end of this article, I’ll link to an installation video from one of the more popular LED companies, Super Nova Fishing Lights. Read More
  • Titusville IFA Kayak Fishing Tour

    Sixty-eight kayak anglers participated in the Titusville IFA Kayak Fishing Tour in search of a bull red and a gator trout to win this event. I decided to be one of those anglers and traveled to Titusville, FL to fish the legendary Mosquito Lagoon. I’m always hearing reports and seeing photos of bull redfish and trout caught in the Mosquito Lagoon that dwarf a South Carolina redfish. Read More
  • Bowfishing Part IV - Where?

    Just like game fish, “rough” fish have favorite haunts and locations where they hang out at certain times. Finding these places is the difference between shooting fish or not. Like we talked about in the “when” segment, these can change due to water temperature or spawning season. The beauty is, what you learn about bowfishing for rough fish also benefits you for catching game fish with traditional gear. Read More

Reactor "Titan" Performance Sport Watch
 
5.0
"My first wristwatch (I think I was six…) was a Mr. Peanut watch that would be a collectable today. Since then, I’ve never been a “big heavy watch” guy, per se. I don’t like changing batteries or winding, and I really do like being able to tell time in the dark. Over the years, finding a quality timepiece that met all my criteria has been a challenge, especially one equally at home when I’m in a jacket and tie, in..."

"It seems at least a couple times a month I find something else - or more - I want to carry with me to work. My tablet, a packable raincoat, charging cables, the occasional snack... I really needed a pack that would carry all my stuff AND protect the expensive electronics, too. Enter STM's "Drifter". My previous EDC pack was a small ruck I'd picked up from a recruiter friend several years ago. One big pocket, bunch of external..."
Stohlquist "Fisherman" PFD
 
5.0
"I’ve used the Stohlquist Fisherman PFD for over 2 years and have nothing but compliments about it. #1 it is comfortable, if a PFD is not comfortable you will not wear it. The Fisherman has a high back which allows me to sit comfortable in Jackson, Native, Hobie, and Wilderness framed seats. The sides and lower back are vented so you don’t feel like your roasting in an oven when wearing it on a hot summer day...."

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,
