Packed up for the season

Well this year was pretty slow due to lack of a vehicle & kids graduating high school. Ive got my gear stores for the winter since I don't have cold weather gear. Next year should be better. I'm going to try my best to go camping from my yak next year. Probably start slow with a weekend trip to Lake Drummond. I'll keep everyone posted with any builds I do during the off months.

Been a slow year

It's been a slow start of the year. Basically life is getting in the way of fishing. Between work for myself, my wife and 1 of my daughters then both of my daughters getting ready to graduate highschool and only 2 vehicles. Well you see the problem. Hopefully I will be getting on the water soon and can generate some new posts.

The weather was beautiful this weekend. I had originally thought of getting on the water but my back had other plans. So I milled around in the garage finishing a few things. Here what I got done:

New crate/rod holders made & installed 
New seat cushions made & installed 
New rod leashes made & installed
New Yak Attack Zooka tube installed

Here are a few pics from everything.

New Video - How to make the Anchor Wrapper

This weekend I made something similar to Yak Attack's Sidewinder for anchor line management.  I made a video of the process which is now in the Videos section.

New Video - How to install a fish finder

This past summer I got a fish finder and installed it in my yak. With all the craziness in my life I finally finished producing the video of the installation. It is uploading to my YouTube channel right now. In a few minutes I will have a link my my videos section.

2015 A new year & New (older) gear

Well everyone it's been a while since I posted last. Family life & a busted reel got in the way of fall fishing. I do have a video I need to get edited for my YouTube channel where I installed a fish finder last year. Hopefully I will have it up soon.

As for prepping for the new fishing year, I've come to the conclusion that none of the moderately priced low profile are worth a crap. My $150 Diawa Coastal Inshore lasted only 1 season. This this pitiful since I only get to fish maybe twice a month & take care of me equipment. So I've decided to go old school. I've picked up a Penn Peerless No. 9 conventional reel. I know it will take some learning but these older reels are American made & bulletproof. If I have good luck I may buy a few extras and refurbish them.
