In this month’s How-To Kayak Rigging segment, Wilderness Systems Pro Staff member Bobby Clark walks you through the basics of installing a fish finder in the Wilderness Systems “Ride 115x”. Unlike many of today’s fishing kayaks, the Ride 115x makes installation a snap with a few basic tools. 

Watch the video below for an overview of installing a fish finder on the Ride 115x removable console.

Here are some close up shots provided by Wilderness Systems Pro Staffer and guide Juan Veruete.

Every fish finder install should be this easy. I hope all the manufacturers follow Wilderness's lead on this.
