You may never see this lol but just an idea I thought of never seen it. What if you put like slide rails on the side and put rod holders on it and modify it to where when you slide it where you want it you can lock it in place. Then you can have it rodholders up beside you if you want or slide them back when paddling

Can you provide more detail on how you have your yak attack net attached to your tackle box. I like the sounds of that setup and have both.

Smedly Dumpsterjuice - 2 years ago
Hi Gene, I added even more to my kayak. I added a pvc piping (painted it black) for a roof, that provides some shade, added solar panels, extra rod holders, and added a misting for those hot days using a small pump. The solar keeps my batteries charged.

I think kayaking will become more popular as boat prices hit the stratosphere.

Nice video - However, I would say that the only thing that gets in the way on my Hobie Outback is the paddle! ; ) Love the Mirage 180 drive - No Paddle fishing all day - keeps my hands free to continuously fish. Of course, I have a lot to learn still, I have only owned mine for 3 months. Great tips though! Love seeing what others do to their yaks!

Hey Gene, another great video, short and sweet. I bought a used Big Rig as my first yak because I wanted to be able to stand. I remember your videos in the BR. How would you say they compare to your current yak? (Speed, stability and standability). Thanks in advance and keep up the great work!
Jake Boss

I love my Hobie Pro Angler 17T Tandem Kayak, (I only use it by myself and i love having lot of extra space for my gear) My most favorite thing about it is that i have a trolling motor that goes in place of the flipper pedals and then i have a paddle to get to shore, haha I did kinda cheap out on the paddle as well, I will definitely look into a much better paddle

I really love your kayak and setup

Great video, I was a kayak guide for a few years and working towards ACA instructor till an injury stopped me. I would also add some more safety gear than just a PFD. Spare paddle or paddle leash, flares and a signaling device. Also I've noticed that no you tuber has ever addressed kayak safety. How to get back into the kayak after a capsize. It is not easy. Sea kayaker Magazine published a book "Deep Trouble" showing kayaker fatal mistakes and how they could have been avoided. Local kayak shops provide basic rescue techniques which any kayaker should take. Thanks Gene

nicksteroni
nicksteroni - 3 years ago
For me...the purpose of kayak fishing is to be be light and quick for essentially inaccessible waters. The advanced kayak is a nice setup for sure, but I'd be exhausted loading it up, trailering, launching, parking a trailer and the same in reverse at the end of the day. With my Hobie at 74 lbs, it's easily loaded on and off the top of my Jeep. I can get anywhere and be loaded and launched in 15 minutes..., tourney or not, with everything that is essential, no more, no less. By the time you have your rig ready to go as seen, I've cleaned out the lake ! LOL Nice vid.
Darwin Greene
Darwin Greene - 2 years ago
nicksteroni I agree. I use the bare essentials. Fish really don’t care how big or small. Expensive or cheap your system is.
Proteus Xavier
Proteus Xavier - 3 years ago
Absolutely essential advice on that PFD Gene. Great stuff. Careful with those backwards facing rod holders if you're fishing in tight creeks with overhanging brush. With cheaper holders, even a small line snag can pull those babies up and outta there if they're not secure. Happened to me on my old rig, and one of the only days I went swimmin'. lol Lesson learned.

Great video Gene! I love these videos on kayak fishing and gear setups. I just had one suggestion to help make these videos better... the camera was on your face pretty much the whole time and when you talk about some of the gear, you can't really see what you are pointing at or where it's located on your yak. I would rather see the gear on camera and listen to what you are talking about. Hope this helps.

Looks badass, and I might try one someday, but I am still a canoe guy. I have a SportsPal 14' set up nearly identical to KeepinItReelFishing, and, IMO, it is infinitely more versatile. It's lighter, can carry more stuff, all of that stuff is in FRONT of me so I don't have to teeter around behind me to get what I need (6' / 250#), can carry extra (and larger) batteries for the motor, still has a very shallow draft for getting into the skinny stuff, and the biggest one... if the son, wife, or friend wants to come along, not a problem. Not criticizing, just another man's opinions & what works for me. Keep up the great work... love the channel & info!!

I want to say thank you, after about 15 years i started fishing again. I use to only use live bait. Didn't catch anything. I picked up a rod and tackle from your beginner videos and set up a split shot rig from the "how to catch your first bass" video. Went out this morning and caught 2 :) my first bass on artificial lures. Thank you so much, med heavy 7' rod, 12lb clear line, zoom black trick worm with 1/0 hook, spinner reel (old like 20 years but still works) and a split shot weight. Thank you again for what you do

Greg Jackson
Greg Jackson - 3 years ago
Ditto on comfort of the Lure seats. The lower seat back design sits well below the back of my pfd, and the seat back also provides nice lumbar support for my 6'1" height.
FerruleWax
FerruleWax - 3 years ago
Sam H Yeah man, I would definitely check one out. The seat on the big fish isn't quite as nice as the one on the feelfree, but it's a really neat setup if you like to stand and fish. I prefer the lure overall.
Sam H
Sam H - 3 years ago
Thanks FerruleWax I’m looking for my fist one and those are the ones I’m leaning towards!
FerruleWax
FerruleWax - 3 years ago
Sam H I really like the feelfree boats, the seat is second to none. I haven't messed with a 13.5 but the 10 and 11.5 are both really nice boats and are super stable. They also paddle well for their size. The big fish is also super cool, my only complaint was how heavy they are. If you are going to trailer your kayak (totally defeats the purpose IMO) then the big fish is fine, but if you are like me and carry your boat the big fish is heavy.
