Secure Your Investment

Written by

All too often, we hear of kayak anglers losing their rod and reels. Most loathe the thought of having lost “X brand” reel on “Z brand” rod, and reiterate the loss by giving the cost of the setup. To remedy this, many anglers use rod leashes.

The Swing Arm Solution

Written by

Rigging a Jackson "Cuda 14" for fishing

Written by

Between hockey practices and games, a Boondoggle, and building a new bed for my son I am finally (five months later) getting around to rigging for the coming fishing season. In 2012 I set my last Cuda up with a YakDaddy “Slider” that worked very well for me and made it a very versatile kayak. This year I decided to see if I could rig the new kayak by drilling or cutting as few holes as possible.

GoPro Photography Rigging For Kayak Fishing
