What’s in the crate?

Crate ready for the water

One of the most important components for kayak fishing is organizing your gear.  Fortunately, most sit-on-top kayaks used for fishing have a well area in the back of the kayak designed to hold a milk crate.  This crate assists in organizing your gear both on and off the water.  Here’s what is in mine:

Off the water

  • PFD
  • Scupper Plugs
  • Lowrance X-4 headunit
  • Anchor and line
  • Stakeout pole tether
  • First Aid Kit
  • Accessory tube (for GoPro pole or light pole)
  • Rod Holders
  • Toolkit (Pliers and scissors)

On the water

  • Tackle box (minimize!)
  • Soft plastics bag (KVD model from Bass Pro Shops)
  • First Aid Kit
  • Accessory tube with GoPro pole
  • Rod Holders
  • Toolkit (Pliers and scissors)
