Hawg Trough Improvement

After using the Hawg Trough for a couple of years now, I looked back through my Kayak Wars stats and realized that it’s helped me measure and photograph well over 4 hundred fish (including the ones that were too small).  It makes documenting the catch quick and easy.  It’s accurate and the numbers show up well in the photos.  It Continue Reading

Mad Frog Liberator Mini

Manufacturer: Mad Frog Gear Manufacturer Part No: MiniL MSRP: $34.99 I use the Mad Frog Liberator Mini on several kayaks to deploy my transducer.

Offshore kayak fishing presents challenges that some kayak anglers may not be prepared for. One example is the integrity of a flush mounted rod holder when fishing for large pelagic fish. In some cases a typical install using rivets may not be sufficient enough. When a large fish strikes it can put great stress on the rod holder and the Continue Reading

I cannot extoll its virtues enough – It has made my kayak very quiet, as I’ve put it everywhere stuff tends to drop or bang. It has also made it even easier to stand in my kayak, as it really lives up to its Continue Reading

I’ve been asked how the Mighty Mount with the stainless machine screws is holding up, since there are no washers/nuts on the back side. I chose to use that mount for the PAN-Fish Continue Reading

WS Ride 135 Rudder Install

Last install for a while (maybe) – I’m a big fan of a rudder, especially dealing with current and tide. So, HOOK1 provided one from Harmony. The Ride 135 is “Rudder Ready”, which means that it already has tubes run inside the hull for the rudder cables, and inserts are put in the hull where the rudder block and lifting Continue Reading
