  • Flamingo Boondoggle – Snake Bight

    At the Boondoggle in Merritt Island in October, 2014 it was announced that the President’s Day Boondoggle would be in the Everglades National Park at Flamingo, FL. This Boondoggle was some fishing, maybe some catching, adult beverage drinking, socializing from campsite to campsite, and a potluck on Sunday evening. I started making plans to fish the Everglades.

  • Soft Stick Baits for Big Bass

    Soft stick baits - the original was the Yamamoto “Senko” - catch lots of bass. I will give some common rigging techniques, and discuss catching big bass with a stick bait. Using a stick bait during pre-spawn, spawn, and post-spawn has helped catch some monster bass the past several seasons. Read More

  • Lost Your Mojo?

    Chances are that if you've been fishing for any amount of time, or perhaps even if you're a new angler, you've hit some dry spells when it comes to catching fish. After all, we do call it "fishing". If we were always successful we would surely call it "catching"! Read More

  • Bowfishing, Part I - How?

    Bowfishing is an incredibly addictive sport, and just like everything else in kayak fishing you can spend as little or as much as you like. I started out with an old recurve bow, a tape on reel, and one arrow for the grand total of forty bucks. Once I was hooked, the prices of gear kept increasing until I recognized I had a sickness.

  • Not Everyone Gets a Trophy

    Life teaches some hard lessons. The sooner we can learn and apply these lessons, the better our lives will be. At least that is what I am teaching my kids. This weekend my son learned a very hard lesson. Not everyone gets a trophy. Read More

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...."

"I was lucky enough to borrow a Malibu Mini X for over a year from the owner of Kayak Fishing Radio Chip Gibson. Used in specific situations the Mini X excels, but I wouldn't recommend it if you fish large bodies of water frequently. The Malibu Mini X has many great features but is by no means a good “all around kayak”. Let’s start with what I like about the Malibu Mini X Light weight – The Malibu..."

"Finding our selves without kayaks at 7 pm Friday night, we were in a scramble. Adam and I needed to get our hands on some form of roto-molded flotation device to use on our last fishing day in Florida. We stopped by a small kayak shop in Largo but they didn't have any rentals left. Three calls to other shops “without naming names” ended in “Sorry but we can’t help you”. Our final stop was a..."

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,
