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. I have done the “all in, all at once rigging” and then the “little bit at a time because it’s all I can afford” kayak rigging. I don’t […]

Wilderness FlexPod Fish Finder Install

Michael Guyer is back to give us another walk through of how to install electronics into the Wilderness Systems FlexPod. I began by installing the transducer mount that was supplied with my Fishfinder/GPS Combo unit on the bottom of the FlexPod.

The Hobie Sail Kit is a fairly basic affair and consists of a two […]

PanFish & DogBone Mounts from YakAttack

I’ve spent the last three days re-rigging my kayak, incorporating some GearTrac along the way. The positioning on the GearTrac was dependent on several factors. One of those was where to position my PanFish camera/video mounts. The PanFish comes in two models, the standard PanFish and the PanFish Portrait. The biggest difference between the two mounts is the height, the PanFish coming in at 28” whilst the Portrait is considerably smaller at 6”. The […]

Wilderness Systems Commander Seat Bar Reinforcement Kit

I wanted to document a step by step installation of the Seat Bar Reinforcement Kit for my Commander 140 so that others would have a guide. If you have any issues with your Commander or are a little bit bigger angler, you may want to install the kit for added reinforcement. This kit will also work with the Commander 120. For the installation you will need a Philips head screw driver, 7/16 wrench, 1/8 hex key and some marine grade anti seize. A Hook1 sticker would […]
