The More You Know

THE SEARCH FOR KNOWLEDGE In the popular Austin Powers series, Dr. Evil stated that his key to maintaining dominion over his evil empire by saying…..”I gotta have the innnnfoooo!” We have all heard the phrase that 90% of the fish are caught by 10% of the fishermen. I think knowledge and preparedness are the keys that separate successful anglers from those left frustrated and discouraged.  Consider that you are a hunter who stalks big fish. Taking on a hunting mentality will help you in your pursuit of bass, especially the big ones. I am an avid bow hunter and I have found that the same principles that make me...

VIDEO: Detachable Anchor Trolley How-To

“The Detachable Anchor Trolley” On this episode of Yakntexas we get into home made anchor trolley.  The detachable anchor trolley allows you to clip the ropes to the available yak handles at the front and rear of the boat.  There is no need to drill holes, if it’s in the way you can simply un-clip the whole anchor trolley and store it!   Having the anchor trolley running from the tip of the kayak nose to the very back tip allows for the largest possible range of motion when spinning the yak while on anchor.  It’s a cheap, easy and effective way to stay on anchor and position your kayak.
