I was out checking out the Charleston Maritime Center for Charleston Watersports Week. I'm there working Time Out Sports representing Jackson Kayaks. While there today Marian pointed out a new concept for kayak fishing or just kayaking in general. This concept is a kayak pod that is towed behind your SUP or Kayak. This pod is called a Kayak Kaddy.

Here is a photo of Nick Biron - VP of Marketing displaying the Kayak Kaddy.

Here is a video of the Kayak Paddy in action bass fishing.



Check out their web site: kayakkaddy.com/

I'm trying to convince them to participate in the Boondoggle for the vendor's village. They are making every effort to keep this an American made product down to the accessories.

Wonder what it's like towing that, do you feel drag while towing?

Those are interesting, but I bring too much crap as it is. I'm trying really hard to bring less so I won't need a trailer. :lol:

Would those be called a 5th Paddle? (as opposed to 5th wheel) or Bow-neck Trailer maybe? :lmao:

Good idea if you need additional room on the water but I would rather not add any drag behind me.
Save the earth. It's the only planet with kayaks, fish & chocolate!!!

I think this thing would be great for someone in a sit-inside, who needs extra space...I saw one in person today. Nice folks - I wish them success...

Looks cool I'm not certain how I would like it being pulled behind my yak. In the video it looks like it erks and twerks and twitches! Maybe if they a solid arm off the front that would keep it straight behind you! I give it 3.5 stars

Nick from Kayak Kaddy will be building me a fishing version of the Kayak Kaddy for me to demo down at the Boondoggle. I will be doing a report/review for YakAngler on this new product.

If any Boondoggler would like to try it contact me at the Boondoggle and I will lend it out. Also if you see me towing the kaddy stop by and see if the beer is still cold. :lmao:
