Plano-Z-Series-Backpack Payne Outdoors Review

REVIEW: Plano Z Series Backpack

Plano made an interesting step into the kayak fishing world with the introduction of the soft side, V Series, and Z Series.

Yak Gear Fish Stik

REVIEW: Yak Gear Fish Stik Measuring Board

When the Yak Gear Fish Stik hit the scene at ICAST 2017 in Orlando, two camps immediately formed. Some folks loved the product. Some folks did not. Most of the dissension revolved around the “flex” in the board at the hinged points. Many theories bubbled up about being able to gain inches with the flex and being able to manipulate the board to cheat. I had never seen the board […]

Kayak Rigging and Accessories: Where Do I Start?

As I talk to folks both new and experienced in the kayak fishing world, gear and kayak rigging bubbles up as a subject constantly. Having been in the kayak for more than 10 years now, I have rigged quite a few boats.
