Hi Joco,
After having unloaded all my gear its an excellent fishing machine.  I have my GPS/Fishfinder mounted on my left side and my rodholder on my right side.  One fish line with snaps on each side of my kayak to keep my catch alive.  The rodder is controlled with footpedals so I can do a controlled drift down along the shore line of a lake and keep my hands free for fishing.  If it rains or the water gets rough I just use my spray skirt and stay nice and dry and can make it through any weather.  I have a small pulley mounted on the stern for an anchor rope.

Thanks for all the replies guys and gals, I've got a pretty good idea what I'm gonna do for storage this year.  Gonna try to mount a milk crate behind the cockpit on my sik... but elevated on an aluminum frame (depends if the welder dude at work feels like doing me a favour)... I'll post when I get it done.

Hi Don,

I don't actually have a large collection of tackle, so I bring it all   ;) :
 
  • 1 rod
  • 2 plano boxes of spoons/crankbaits/jerkbaits/spinners
  • 1 bag that holds various plastics
  • 1 net (if i'm going for toothy critters)
  • 1 mini plano-type box that holds my bass fishing stuf (hooks, bullet sinkers, etc)
  • sonar
  • pliers
  • scale
  • camera
I usually troll (for pike) while I'm getting to my 'real' destination, where I usually fish for bass.

Don, my gear weighs about 60 kg and my kayak handles just fine.  I have covered up to 14 km at an average speed of 5 km/hr and 3 portages in one day with it.  I just pack all the heavy gear on the bottom and light stuff on top and my kayak is stable and fairly high in the water.

Wow Ove, how much ya think that gear weighs?  I've yet to take any paddling trips and load up on gear, how much of a difference in the handling of your 'yak?

I'm really loaded down as you can see from the picture of my kayak packed for a one week trip.  I bring 3 rods and 3 small to medium size tackle boxes, GPS/sonar fish finder.  The tackle boxes fits on and in an "under the deck bag" in front of me.

Like Zog, I bring 2 rods and one small tackle box. The rest is food and drinks and the camera.

yeah Gord, I forgot about the damn camera... gonna have to get a new point and shoot like yours... bringing my DSLR in it's big ol Pelican case isn't gonna be the most convenient.  I've seen Tim do it but I think I have much fatter legs, LOL!

That's the beauty of that tandem Marco...

I can't put anything in the hatch in the back of my Pam 'cause it's too far back... and no easy way of securing a milkcrate... I do have one idea but it's gonna take alot of glass fiber and polyester resin  ::)  Might just have to get on this little project before the ice melts...  :D :D :D

Would be interested in finding out how much tackle you guys bring out with you on an outing.  I typically go out with only one species in mind (largies) and usually only bring a small selection of toads, frogs, spinnerbaits and some plastics.  I use a SIK of course, and the only real accessible areas for tackle are in hull by my feet and to the rear of the seat.  Small plano box or two.  How does tackle management work out on your boats?
