Installing a fish finder with exterior transducer mount

When I first began fishing from a kayak in 2008, things were pretty simple. You paddled out, caught bait and trolled. There were plenty of fish in LJ back then so most fishing trips were usually...

Great video

Now I know why you have all those cameras on your yak. Even though I was only a few feet from you when you fought and landed that nice YT, I think that the video was more fun than the live action. I...

That is a nice implementation of the "wet mount". Several other versions have appeared in this thread over the years. A variant which I have used for the past 5 plus years is the "grease mount"....

LJ 8-13

Mark, (Fish11), and I met at the launch way too early for my preference. We were greeted by almost surreal conditions. First light and a minus tide exposed over 100 yards of normally hidden sand that...

Maybe this thread will coax a few more of the senior crowd back to posting on BWE. I hope so.

As Trolldirty says, you should keep the mirage drive available but use the bungy to make them retracted to the hull. In my experience, paddles work best when going in backwards. It is usually wet but...

One of the reasons that I stayed in the kelp on this trip is that I have developed a bit of a fear of fishing miles offshore by myself as was my common practice back in the day. I have never flipped...

La Jolla 8-2

Great video. Even better editing. Very entertaining.

With the BSB population on the rebound, I wonder if they will ever become legal again.

Fish Finder Recommendation

I bought a used Lowrance FF last year. I used it twice and it has now crapped out. Now I need something new. I usually settle for one of the lower cost units because I know that fish finders on...

I went out today as well. It was my first time on the water in a couple of years as I recovered from replacing a couple worn out knees. I also had a new fish finder that I had never used before. I...

That is a very elegant solution for a water mount. In my experience, the seal to the hull eventually fails and the water leaks out. Your design may not have that problem because you have attached the...

Still waiting for a reverse gear for my Revo. Learned the hard way that this would be a very useful feature.
