As kayak anglers, we are constantly thinking of things to rig out our kayaks at just about any store we go to. While at Walmart browsing through the kitchen aisle, I stumbled across a polymer cheese cutting board priced at $3.00. If you cannot find the small cheese cutting board then you can also buy a larger board and simply cut it to the size of your liking and drill a hole where you would like to anchor it!
At first, I kept the board in my milk crate, but once it was full of cut bait I wanted a place that would could keep the bait on the board and covered with a rag. Then YakAttack started offering ”T-Bolt” kits, consisting of loose “Mightybolts” and nylon knobs. Like many modern fishing kayaks, the Jackson Kayak “Big Rig” has factory installed ”Geartracs” on both sides - great places to mount the board. Cutting bunker chunks, or cleaning and stripping out squid on this board is perfect. It’s out of the way from my paddle stroke and my steering.
Even if your kayak does not have factory-installed Geartracs they are easy to install aftermarket. The tracks don’t only have to hold the bait board - you can also mount any T-bolt accessory to the same track!
