Scotty Rod Mounts

Kayak rod mounting systems on the market today are excellent and there are a wide variety to choose from due the increasing popularity of kayak fishing. A few things to look for are rigidity, adjustability, and accessibility when it comes to a holder for fishing rods. Scotty mounts consistently deliver on all three of these, and they have excellent bases that keep the rod holders very secure.

Assault Hand Paddle Review

Assualt Hand Kayak Paddle

It’s always fun working with smaller companies who have come up with a great fishing tool, and Backwater Paddles has done exactly that. The Assault Hand Paddle concept is simple – a paddle you can use with one hand that’s sturdy as a rock. The team at Backwater Paddle Company kept kayak anglers in mind when designing this hand paddle.

Rapala Scatter Rap Deep Husky Jerk Lure

Rapala Scatter Rap Deep Husky Jerk

Rapala has added a scatter rap lip to the Husky Jerk lure which now gives it more erratic action. It is supposed to have a built-in triggering mechanism that adds a revolutionary evasive action perfect for casting or trolling. The lip should make this lure unpredictable in it’s swim pattern and let it change direction quickly and randomly on either a fast or slow retrieve.

KastKing Kodiak Spinning Reel

KastKing Kodiak 3000

If you’re thinking “I’ve never seen KastKing in Bass Pro before”, you’d be exactly right. KastKing exclusively sells their products on their own website or other online channels. KastKing creates reliable and strong fishing gear and is able to keep their prices below competitors because they don’t pay shelving costs, not because they’re any less quality.

Deeper Smart Sonar PRO+ Fish Finder

I have been interested in portable fish finders ever since I first started kayak fishing. Deep lakes with no visible cover can be very hard to fish without electronics, such as Lake Norman in North Carolina. One of the biggest attractants to this unit in particular is the ease of use and portability that allows you to transfer this between fishing from shore, to a pier, to a kayak.

GoPro HERO Session Review

GoPro has already made the point that their cameras are almost essential for any fisherman’s day on the water. The fact that they’re waterproof and durable, while still capturing quality video makes it an easy choice. However, there was a little hesitation in the GoPro community when the Hero Session was released. Could this little camera really live up to the hype of its predecessors?

Yeti Tundra 45 Cooler

The first thing that comes to mind when you see a Yeti is just how thick and solid it looks. It seems overkill for a cooler, and it is, but then again most coolers only keep ice for about a day. I’ve had the opportunity over the last several weeks to review Yeti’s most popular cooler, the Tundra 45. It is the perfect size for storage and portability and it really just is an awesome all around cooler.

Southern Bred Outfitters Performance Fishing Shirt

As an avid fisherman I have had the opportunity, or rather the need, to purchase a variety of high quality fishing shirts not only to look awesome while fishing but also because the material and UV protection really make a difference while out on the water. By that I mean faster drying, non-chaffing, and just overall just a more comfortable shirt.
