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. The bad part of this is that you will spook every critter in it if float through the hole. One of the best solutions when conditions allow is to get out of the boat. 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

What are the essentials of using your kayak for waterfowling you might ask? Well, here it goes.

The 10 Commandments of Kayak Fishing

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...

Have You Read Everything About the Wilderness Commander 140?

Contributed by JR Pate If you’re reading this you could Google Wilderness Commander 140 and get far more intelligent  information than what you are about to read. I can only share with you my experience. I’m kinda short and stumpy. I’m not talking movie extra as a Hobbit but I have short legs and it always seems a long reach to the pedals. I had neck surgery almost 2 years ago and a herniated disc surgery before that. I found whether it was a kayak or a car; sitting with my legs bent is the most comfortable. My wife swears she married someone who is falling apart. With all...
