Waterproofing Connectors

Water, salt, dirt, and corrosion are the worst components for damaging your cable connectors. Unlike a motor boat where the cable connectors are typically protected from most of the harsh weather conditions, kayaks are completely exposed. Taking salty waves over our bows landing on sandy beaches and constantly getting rained on are routine. For a minimal cost you can protect your cable connectors to obtain the maximum lifespan out of these expensive cables.

Rigging My New Ride 115

I picked up a new “Ride 115” from Appomattox River Company the other day, and headed over to YakAttack's shop to do a little rigging. I was really looking forward to tossing ideas back and forth with Luther; when you get two gear heads together, you never know what you will come up with. Since I mostly fish rivers, I didn't want to do a bunch of rigging just for the sake of rigging. The last thing I need is a bunch of unnecessary stuff on my kayak.

Ep 02: Flush Mount Rod Holders

Most “angler” edition kayaks come from the factory with flush-mount rod holders already installed. What do you do if you have a standard kayak without them, or you decided to purchase the “standard” model so you could save some coin and install them yourself? Luckily, flush mounts are easily installed in just a few minutes with some basic tools.

My Rigged Malibu X-Factor Fishing Kayak

I use my Malibu X-Factor fishing kayak on many different bodies of water and to chase many species of fish. I paddle the cold water lakes of the Northeast looking for Smallmouth Bass and fish the salt water flats of South Florida targeting Redfish and Sea trout. I have tried to keep the rigging on my kayak very flexible so I can adapt it to the current conditions and fish I am chasing.

How To Stick Decals To Your Kayak

One thing many kayak fishermen have in common is the desire to customize their fishing kayaks. An easy way to add your own personal flair is by adding stickers or decals to your kayak. Many of today’s Roto-Molded kayaks have a textured surface making it hard to get the decals to stick for more than a few trips. Bill Howard shows us how to get stickers to stick to his Malibu kayak’s textured surface.

Kayak Anchor Setups

The kind of bottom surface you're kayak fishing over will determine what kind of anchor you want to use. The depth of the water will also play a role in your decision as well. The following are some personal preferences that I have acquired for the different places I fish.
