5 Things Every Kayak Fisherman Needs

By Kassii Watta

1) H-Crates!

Hobie H-Crates have room for plenty of fishing gear keeping it organized in one easy-to-reach space. They are easily removable for transporting your tackle and gear and the H-Rail carrying handles are great mounting platforms for Hobie H-Rail accessories. You can even purchase a soft cover to keep your gear contained and protected from the elements. They come in two different sizes and only weigh a little over 5 lbs.

2) Plano Tackle Boxes!

Hobie tackle boxes come in three sizes. The small (yellow) has 10 adjustable dividers to create 5-15 compartments. The medium (blue) has 15 adjustable dividers to create 5-20 compartments. The large (red) has 25 dividers to create 3-28 compartments. These will fit perfectly in your H-Crate as well!

3) First Aid Kit!
