Re: Kayak Box

Lots of people like the YakAttack Black box. Comes with three rods pre-installed.

The Hobie H-Crate is also an option. A bit more expensive, but it looks like a bit quality product.

Re: Looking for a fish finder for my new 2019 Hobie PA14

Was at Westmarine today again and played with all their Fish Finder for about 1h. Here my latest take: * Hummingbird: + Slightly better side imaging than Lowrance - Completely confusing User Interface - Unit (Helix series) just felt and looked cheap * Raymarine Element + Great build quality + 3d sca...

Re: Looking for a fish finder for my new 2019 Hobie PA14

Option 1: Buy 2 10Ah Nocquas and their Y connector to power you for a full day of fishing Option 2: Buy an 18Ah Amped Outdoors LiFePO4 battery that can be drained almost completely and will definitely give you a full day of fishing, maybe 2 (need to make a waterproof enclosure) Option 3: Buy a 30Ah...

Re: Looking for a fish finder for my new 2019 Hobie PA14

Thanks for the great reply! Yeah, I think I probably try to get the transducer of the '93sv plus' (if I choose it, still havent completely decided) and try to get it into the transducer area of the PA 14 (somehow installed). There are some vids out there on how to DIY that (lets see if I am savy en...

Re: Looking for a fish finder for my new 2019 Hobie PA14

You can find an Garmin echoMAP Plus 93sv (9", side imaging, touchscreen) for around $600 right now. They were $600 everywhere around Black Friday, some people are still offering the deal. Stupid good deal for what you get! Was today at the Westmarin in Marin City (their flagship store) and talked w...

Re: Looking for a fish finder for my new 2019 Hobie PA14

I ran a Humminbird 899 on my PA12. 8in wasnt too bad on the Hobie. If yours cane with the flat platform that goes on the H-Bar, you can use a C-Clamp or other means to attach it. Really secure. I do that on my PA17. I did some easy modifications to make it work as cheap as possible. I used PVC to a...

Re: Simms Transom vs Simms Challenger

I have the challenger and it’s great for warmth but true it’s not super water resistant. It will be good for the 2 heavy downpours over a few days and after that it’s not the same. I would invest in the pro series or 100mph THanks! Decided to go with the Transom! Better water protection. I can use ...

Simms Transom vs Simms Challenger

Hi guys, I am in the market for a rain suit that I will be wearing most of the time in Californian winters (rainy and relatively cold) for bankfishing but also for kayak fishing. Looking at the Simms Transom and Simms Challenger suits. I am wondering which one is the better deal (they are almost the...

Re: 2019 Daiwa Morethan PE 1000 TW

Loved mine so much, that I bought a second. One is on my punching 7'9'' Steez AGS rod (steez A spool in it) and the other is on a St Croix Legend Elite 7'4 heavy and also has a Steez A spool in it. I would be interested in how people view the Steez A spool vs the Morethan spool in the reel. Again, s...

Re: High end frog rod: heavy-ish surface veg

I have the St Croix 7'4 Heavy. It is not a brromstick and has a fairly fast tip that should def allow you to walk a frog. I personally would not use it for that technique since the reel seat is not comfortable to me for that kind of downwards motion. I use a Steez XBD frog rod for that technique. I...
