Kayak Tracking and Safety

Written by

So you have your kayak all rigged and fishing gear packed for a big day out on the water. You’ve told your wife/husband/significant other your plans, where you are going and about what time you’ll be home. Your cell phone is all charged up. Sounds like you are all ready to head out! Well, maybe not. Depending on where you are going, you may want to consider some other gear…just in case the plans don’t work out the way you planned.

Slayer Propel VS. Outback

Written by

Like the age-old “Chevy vs. Ford” debate, many people have asked us to compare the new Native Watercraft “Slayer Propel 13” with the Hobie “Outback”. Rather than give you my personal opinion on what kayak is better, I decided to give you a breakdown of each kayak’s features and options. This side-by-side comparison will give you some information to consider when thinking about which kayak might be better for you.

Patching up those leaky waders

Written by

If you wear anything to keep waterproof, be it waders or a dry suit, and you spend any time kayak fishing, chances are at some point there will be a hole that will make for a miserable discovery. Breathable dry gear is expensive--a couple hundred bucks each for waders and dry tops, and much more for dry suits. Fortunately holes and small tears are easily repaired, and can bring new life to something you might otherwise shove aside and replace.

Hypothermia: My “Do or Die” Story

Written by

Throughout my life, I’ve enjoyed a week each year to disappear into the wilderness. When I was young, it was a week or more of Boy Scout camp. Places like the Allagash Waterway System in Maine let me forget that I was an awkwardly tall seventh grader dealing with acne and a violently changing social hierarchy. I continued my regular pilgrimage to wilderness into my college years and beyond. One early October trip in my early 20s was almost my last.

River Fishing Kayak Basics

Written by

For most of the general population, talk of a river boat conjures up images of a coal-fired paddle wheeler lumbering along the Mississippi River. For the anglers who chase fish in the swirling water of their local flow, a river boat is a totally different critter.

Kayaks and Weight Limits

Written by

My first experience with a sit-on-top kayak was a terrifying one. With no help or information, I bought one on sale at a big box store and headed to the water. It was a 12’model with four scuppers near the bow and two beneath the seat. I was excited as I drove to a neighborhood lake for the maiden voyage.

Fast vs. Stable – Finding the Balance

Written by

I was poring over some old photos of my “Paddle Around the Bay” trip back in 2008, and it seemed everyone had a fast kayak back then. Where did they all go?
