Fishing Reel Maintenance for Dummies

Written by

Not that we are all not dummies when it comes to reel maintenance - but for some this is an overwhelming task, especially for kayak anglers fishing in saltwater. After all, we are fishing at nearly the same level as the fish, which provides a greater risk that our reels will be more in contact with the water then if we were fishing from a boat, dock/pier, or from the shoreline.

UV? Or Knot UV?

Written by

In the sport of kayak fishing, it’s often the small things that make a difference: the proper size weight, the right launch time to hit the river as it drops, the knot that won’t let you down on the fish of a lifetime, the right color bait, etc. These little difference makers often also come in the form of inexpensive products that sit right under our noses. For me, ultraviolet (UV) knot glue is one of these products. I use Loon “UV Knot Sense” and Rio “UV Knot Sealer”, depending on what’s in stock at my favorite shops.

Basic Reel Care

Written by

Winter time usually seems to divide us kayak anglers into two categories; those of us who brave the freezing temperatures and water to seek that winter bite and those who pack up their equipment for the winter and bide their time with football, basketball, and Sunday morning fishing programs.   

If you’re a YakAngler that falls into the later category, we have already talked about some things that you could be doing during the winter months in End of the Fishing Season Task.  I wanted dive a bit deeper and discuss Proper Reel Care.   Really this article is great for the winter season anglers as well, as you should be performing these general care procedures at least once a year.

    • The towers that clamped to the roof tore off. I'd been using that rack for years. Never had an issue. Until the day I did have an issue.
