    J rack or slide/saddle

    Bare roof 2013 Prius. Which of these designs would be better for one person loading? I will probably get Rhino Square Bar rack. Rhino has a center saddle type that pivots to the side that looks as though it would be suitable for a number of hull shapes.

    looking to get back in the water

    After a very long hiatus, I am thinking about once again to get a kayak. A couple I have in mind are: Field and Stream Talon, Field and Stream Shadow Caster, Wilderness Tarpon 12 ft ,BKC-UH-TK181. I previously owned a Cobra Navigator. Of the above, the Shadow Caster would be the most stable, but...

    LJ Saturday need company

    I am planning on launching at La Jolla Saturday and since this will be my first time I do not wish to go alone. I would probably arrive at the La Playa Launch site around 6 a.m. unless somebody has a better suggestion. I have noticed lately that some have caught some 34 inch Halibut and some...

    home made game clip

    Not the prettiest thing in the world, but it seems sturdy enough. Took a sturdy wire coat hangar, bent it into loop, fastens together with hooks on either side, top loop wrapped with electrical tape (did not have any foam handy). When weight is applied, it hold fast yet can be unsnapped very...

    Kayak cart rigging

    ever had a cart strap slip off the back end while pulling to the launch? After numerous re-ties e.t.c. I simply took two lengths of straps with S-hook on one end, secured the hooks to each end of the cart axel, ran the straps up to the bow carry handle and grasped all three with one hand...

    No glue-no drill bait tube

    Voila! it even works...... Not exactly an original idea, but I went to Lowes and picked up 2 ft section of 3 inch ABS, 2 plastic snap fit flush strainers for end caps, hooked a mini bungie on an outside edge hole of each from the inside. Simply pull either cap (rests nicely on the side of the...

    stinger rig

    just getting back into the game after a loooong hiatus (pre-swim bait era). I wanted to rig a quickie stinger for a 5 inch Hammer. I simply took a fairly heavy barrel swivel and snap to connect a 2/0 circle to the hook of a 1/2 oz lead head and hooking near the tail. I have not tried it yet, but...

    Kayak Crate

    I ran across this the other day. Don't know if anybody here has seen it, but in any event, take a look: It also gave me the idea to make my own slide trax system from track lighting hardware, or I will try anyway.

    Oceanside Fishing buddies

    new to sport

    I know I need to do a lot of research regarding which Kayak to buy and that I will need to try out as many as I can via demos, but I have a very basic question. I have never fished from a Kayak before and only recently tried one out. I am quite comfortable in one however and that will not pose a...

    I don't suppose anybody has plans/drawing for making solid decking for INTEX Excursion 5 ?

I ordered the boat and...

    Not sure where to post this, but am interested in getting an inflatable and have my eyes on a 6 person by INTEX. Probably try the Tamarack Lagoon(s) for starters. It is my understanding that the only place "passive" vessels are permitted is in the East Side of the inner lagoon. Launch permitted...
