Yak Attack Park-N-Pole

Video Review- NATIVE VERSA BOARD

I’ve been looking a long time for a kayak that will be super sight cast friendly.  I do alot of sight casting on the central Texas coast for red fish, sheep head and drum.  Until this point i have had to try to stand in a tippy kayak, and make the best of it or get out and wade.  The problem with trying to stand in a regular sit-on-top yak […]

PRODUCT REVIEW: Yak Attack's VISICarbon Pro

When I go fishing my focus is on catching big bass. I don’t want to be worrying about my equipment or safety. I am also a true do-it yourself type person.  If I can build it cheaper and maintain quality I’m all for it. That was my mind set when I decided I needed a light for my Kayak. After several failed attempts (and a few wasted dollars) of making […]
