APR Extra Lite Series 6’10 Medium Heavy Casting Rod

Review Submitted by Cord Dyer Over the last year I’ve been going through rods, searching for the perfect one for multiple techniques. The rod needs good backbone for getting a good hook set, but has to have a fast enough tip to sling the lighter stuff. I deicded to try an All Pro Rod paired with the new Shimano Curado. My first test of the set-up was the Texas rig. I wanted to test the sensitivity of the rod.  It actually took a little getting used to feeling all the stuff you normally don’t feel. It’s a good thing hooksets are free! I usually fish a 3/16 ounce weight...

Make a Hawg Trough Float

Contributed by Aaron Stiger     In this video, CREW member Aaron Stiger demonstrates how to take your HOOK1 Hawg Trough and make it float.  Going into the winter months, you simply cannot afford to reach your arm down into the water after a sinking bump board.  This video shows a quick, affordable, and effective way to add buoyancy to your Hawg Trough. If you haven’t bought one yet, you can now buy them with flotation already added. Check that out here: http://www.kayakfishinggear.com/products/hook-1-hawg-trough-measuring-board    

Wade a Minute

Contributed by Chris Funk   When you are riding current in a river there are times the movement is too fast to fish a hole effectively.

This will let you slow down and thoroughly fish the area at your pace, not what was set by the river. It will also allow you to systematically blanket the high percentage areas in a given spot without spooking other fish when you hook one. Working from the outer...

Kayak Hunting for Waterfowl

Contributed by Cameron Simot We’ve all heard of kayak fishing by now, right? But, have you ever heard of kayak hunting? Using a kayak to hunt waterfowl is just as beneficial as using the same kayak to fish from. Many of the benefits you see using your kayak for fishing, double as benefits for hunting with your kayak; ease of transportation, accessing those spots that are otherwise impossible to reach, price, and most of all, stealth. What are the essentials of using your kayak for waterfowling you might ask? Well, here it goes.

The 10 Commandments of Kayak Fishing

My thoughts on 10 Rules that would help make kayak fishing better. This isn’t an end all be all list but some things that if we kept in mind, could help grow our sport. 1. Learn to Paddle a Kayak- Sometimes staying on a spot is very important and nature will try to push you off of it. Whether it be current, wind or passersby, learning to maneuver your kayak well will add time fishing and reduce frustration. 2. Wave at Other Kayak Fishermen- Some of us are social; some are not. A nod and a wave will usually suffice. If someone has time and/or wants to chat, they’ll...
