The duffek or the cross Duffek stroke, is a way to turn your boat when you have speed already or when you’re turning into a current that has speed. In the duffek and in the cross duffek, the paddle doesn’t really move.Continue reading
Hey, guys. Travis here again with Lucky Tackle Box. When I am picking apart some water, I like to divide the water column into three different depths. The top, mid, and bottom. What this does is consciously make me pick lures that are going to fish these separate areas until I figure out where these fish are going to be most active in. So today we are going to be talking about the top and mid with two different Gary Yamamoto products.Continue reading

I’m Steve Phillips with CLC Wild River, and I wanted to show a couple of our new bags today that we’re unveiling at the Bassmaster Classic. CLC is a company that’s been around for 30 years. Been in the construction and industrial business, so we know what we’re doing in the bags and we’re passionate about fishing, so we thought we’d bring some of our unique ideas to the fishing world. And here’s just a couple I wanted to show you. This is the Road Bag. It’s a very versatile bag. It’s got a lot of interior storage with the 3700-series trays, outside pockets. You can put additional 3600 or 3700 trays on all of our bags. We use the high dis orange so it makes it easier to find your lures or find your accessories.Continue reading
We’ve had so many questions recently about how to properly rig your fishing kayak. I found a great video on how to do this. Even though these blokes are in England, they’re using a Hobie Mirage as their example and there really is a load of great advice. Hopefully this’ll answer all your questions. If you have more, just leave a comment below and we’ll do our best to answer them for you.
We also took the time to transcribe (to the best of our ability!) the YouTube video for those of you who prefer reading or are deaf. You don’t need to be able to hear to get out there on the water! No excuses! Get your kayak rigged up and get out there! Hope you enjoy this video presentation…
Kayaking has become quite affordable these days. You’ve got these new kayaks coming from China that’s extremely cheap, although they’re virtually disposable since the quality is quite cheap as well. But least you can enjoy them for a few months, until it breaks down on you and you have a nightmare situation in the water. But for some people, quality in kayaking is everything. And for these people, often that means getting a kayak from Seaward Kayaks.
Eskimos started using kayaks about 5,000 years ago, and its basic design is still the same. Of course, technology has developed quite a bit since those early days. Still, tradition plays an important role in kayak design, and Ocean Kayak certainly ascribes to that “stick to what works best” philosophy. Their first Scrambler kayaks were made more than 20 years ago, and yet their efficient and stable Tri-Form Hull remains basically the same even in this recent version. It’s a great kayak for beginners, but experienced paddlers love it too.
A kayak isn’t just a vehicle that transports you over the water from point A to point B. It’s also a great way to enjoy Mother Nature and all her glory. The blue skies and the fluffy clouds above you, the waters that reach up to the waters, and the mountains and beaches in the background all offer visual delights that will remain with you forever in your memory.
