How To Install A SeaDek Kayak Kit

After installing our custom SeaDek Kayak Kit on my Native Watercraft "Slayer Propel 13", I was asked several times about how hard the install process was and if we could create a video about it. I was a little gung-ho about installing the kit on mykayak, but luckily Jason from SeaDek took the time to film a full install.

Bowfishing, Part I - How?

Bowfishing is an incredibly addictive sport, and just like everything else in kayak fishing you can spend as little or as much as you like. I started out with an old recurve bow, a tape on reel, and one arrow for the grand total of forty bucks. Once I was hooked, the prices of gear kept increasing until I recognized I had a sickness.

When fishing from a kayak, space is always a concern. When fly fishing in windy conditions, line management is a big issue. You can always up your fly rod size and cast a lower cast, but when you’re stripping the line to the deck it can get out of control.

The Swing Arm Solution

Early on in my kayak career I decided to add a fish finder. I did a little research, found one I could afford, and took it home. That’s where the problems started.

For owners of the Native Watercraft's “Propel” pedal drive propulsion system, routine maintenance is an important part of keeping the unit in top working condition. Fortunately, both the system and its upkeep are very straightforward.

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.

Gear Organization Saves Money

How many times have you wandered into a tackle store (or place that has a selection) and thought you were getting something you needed for an upcoming trip only to get home and find out you didn’t. Now you have duplicates. And sometimes duplicates of duplicates. I am on a fishing budget and need to quit spending my precious spending money on unneeded items.

Best Fishing Knots For Kayak Anglers

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen anglers lose a trophy fish because of a bad knot. The tell-tale sign of the line ending in a pigtail will always wrench at your gut, knowing it was your fishing knot that failed. I’ve assembled a list of the top 5 fishing knots all kayak anglers should learn to tie. There is no one perfect knot- each of these five fishing knots serves a purpose and in my opinion the 5 best fishing knots.

Part Two of this four-part series, directed at tournament anglers or those who would benefit from taking a professional approach to their weekend angling, focuses further on prefishing and equipment preparation.

Springtime Hybrids

Here in Texas, the winter has had its time and spring is showing up throughout the weekly forecasts. A week ago we were dealing with water temps around 40°F and the fish, not used to chilly water, seemed uncooperative. This week sees a large warming trend, and signals the beginning of hybrid striped bass season.
