New Improvements in Mike’s Fishing Kayak Rigging, New York

I improved my removable deck by using some noodle material to shim up the coaming/deck joint and adding a rule to the deck to measure fish and to facilitate mounting my fish finder. Also note the two cut off detergent containers that straddle the saddle. Very easy, temporary, and “green” use of recyclables for handy storage of tackle, water, lunch etc. The noodle material is very handy for quick, temporary storage of hooks/lures keeping them from getting in trouble. The whole contraption easily lifts out and it just fits in place without any drilling or fastening to the hull.

  1. Interesting to see what people do with foam – a place to hold hooks, a paddle holder, a rod holder, a cushion. I would have never imagined it could be such a useful and versatile material for rigging kayaks.

  2. Pool noodles are a mainstay in the fishing world. Good for all kinds of things. This time of year they can be had a fire sale prices since most stores are changing over to winter items. This is also the time of year you can find out where stores have their main offices. Wal-Mart for example here in Palatka, Florida is pulling out most of the suntan products for the winter now. I guess those folks up there in Arkansas don’t understand is kind sorta stays sunny and warm here most of the year ( last winter not included). By the way Mike, nice job on the rigging, good clean lines and very professional looking.
