Click here to get the YakAttack Stake Out Pole

The Yak Attack ParkNPole Floating Stake Out Pole might be the most well designed stake-out stick you will ever use. Is it the high quality foam grip or the strong fiberglass construction? Or is it the highly-designed handle which features ergonomic notches for a firm grip, a hole for a tether or hanging storage or the side notches designed for grabbing lanyards or anything else you need to reach? Did we say handle? Turn the stick over and that handle now becomes a wide foot, great when you need a push off. The Stake-Out Stick measures .75 in. x 8 ft. and is loaded with features, for a stick.



• Can be attached to anchor trolley or cleats
• Floats
• Strong fiberglass construction

Hot Weather Kayak Fishing Gear

It’s important to stay covered and protect yourself out there fishing and exposed to the elements.  It might seem counterintuitive to be wearing long clothing in hot temps.  I’ve had the beginning stages of heat sickness a couple of times and it’s not fun.  Sometimes, your first symptom is instant puking.  And, what’s worse, is that for some people, once you cross that line, it’s hard to cool off again.  Columbia makes some of the lightest, most comfortable, and cooling materials I’ve seen.  Additionally, convertible pants makes it easy to switch to shorts if you feel the need.  These are easily an essential piece of kayak fishing gear.

The convertible version of the technical Backcast Pant featuring zip-off legs that convert to shorts, the men’s Backcast Convertible Pant is as versatile as it gets—delivering all the quick-drying performance and lightweight comfort you need for splashing through rivers, fishing off docks, and rambling down beaches. UPF 50 sun protection shields you from the sun’s damaging rays, while a partial elastic waistband and interior mesh brief provide comfort and fit.


  • Omni-Shade™ UPF 50 sun protection
  • Quick dry
  • Partial elastic at waist
  • Interior mesh brief
  • Zip-off legs convert pant to 825″ inseam short
  • Relaxed Fit


  • 100% textured nylon poplin

Sun Protection
If you don’t have some fishing pants like this already, I’d recommend picking some up especially if you plan to be out braving the Summer sun and hot temperatures.  You can order Columbia Omni-Shade and Omni-Freeze hot weather gear here.  
And the PFG Tamiami II short sleeve.
Also check out the Solar Camo long sleeve shirt.

Awesome Kayak Fishing Milk Crate System with Slide Trax Rails

The Ackessories Milk Crate with SlideTrax Crate Rails Kit provides you everything you need to construct the ultimate milk crate that provides tons of features for the kayak fisherman. The kit includes a 19″ x 13″ milk crate as well as a set of SlideTrax Crate Rails. These rails mount easily to the top rim of milk crate with the included hardware. These Crate Rails feature slots cut out for knives, pliers or even lures. They even provide pre-drilled holes that allow for the attachment of aftermarket gear tracks that allow the attachment of various accessories. In the corners are pre-cut holes that allow PVC pipe to be inserted to act as rod holders and the rails have even been adapted to securely hold a 5 gallon bucket.

• Industrial grade milk crate that measures 19″ x 13″
• Lightweight, durable, self-draining storage solution
• Comes with SlideTrax crate rails and installation hardware
• Rails allow for attachment of aftermarket Gear Tracks as well as various other pieces of tackle such as pliers and knives
• Fits most tankwells on the market
Below you can see the one I purchased with extra track and a Yak Attack Screwball added.  There is ample room for all kinds of rigging options.  This longer crate particularly fits the Wilderness Systems Commander tankwell very well.  Additionally, with the rails as a platform, there is more opportunity to run your rigging off of the crate rather than extra unnecessary drilling into your kayak hull.  Things like your safety flag/light, rod holders, and other gear pouches are good that purpose.  This is one of the better rigging purchases I’ve made and will last a long time.
