  • A Guide to Filming Kayak Fishing - Part I

    I receive a lot of questions online about a variety of topics related to kayak fishing, but far and away the most common is, “How do I make my kayak fishing videos better?” While “better” is a relative term and pretty vague, there are some basic tips and techniques I’ve figured out along the way that I think can benefit any kayak fishing videographer, from the amateur to the more experienced.

Fenix "HL55" high-intensity waterproof headlamp
"When it comes to launching or recovering the kayak in the dark, it seems like I go through two or three headlamps a year. I’m not easy on gear, plus I’m always looking for newer/better/brighter. I’ll squash one and break it, or waterproof isn’t REALLY waterproof and the salt water takes its toll. I think I have found a lifetime headlamp in the Fenix HL55. As LED technology has continued to improve and drop in price, the brighter Cree-based..."
McAlpine Dam Harrison Ave Ramp
"You have to watch the water levels at this launch. They close the ramp if the water is too high for boats to launch, but even if the ramp is open the water can be pretty tough for kayakers. When the water is down we have caught a TON of fish from this launch. Fish the hydros across from the ramp for sauger, hybrids, and even smallmouth. You can drift back from the hydros and drop a dead..."
Hobie "Pro Angler 12"
"At the Hobie Bass Open on Kentucky Lake earlier this month I was able to finally fish out of the Hobie Pro Angler (PA) 12. I’ve pedaled and paddled it twice at Outdoor Retailer but never got a chance to fish out of it for a full review. There wasn’t much I didn’t like about the larger Pro Angler 14 and there wasn’t much I didn’t like about the PA 12. There were only a few dislikes about 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,
