KAYAK FISHING DIY IDEAS

Some cool ideas for things you can make yourself
Live well


It only costs a couple £'s to make and is ideal for keeping Mackerel or other live bait alive. All you need is some mesh, cable ties, rope, pipe insulation foam and a small caribena. As seen in the photos the first step is to  cut out your pieces of mesh to suit the shape and size you require. The second step is to cable tie the parts together. The third step is add the foam and cut a door you can open and close to put the fish in or take them out. Finally attach a rope with a caribena on the end to attach to your kayak.

Now you can keep your bait alive and not pay a fortune on live wells that require pumps and batteries which will weigh your kayak down.

Telescopic Go Pro Pole


I use this everytime I go out fishing and it can be placed in rod holders to give you all sorts of angles when filming your fishing trips. The best part though is it only costs a fiver to make. All you need is a cheap telescopic mop, I got mine from B&Q for £4. The next thing is put pipe insulation foam around the pole that doesn't move and wrap in electrical tape. This will not only allow the pole to float but it will give you a snug fit in your rod holders for a steady video.

DIY Rod Holders


These are ideal for the kayak fisherman with a low budget. All you need is some PVC piping, some string and a small caribena. Connect the PVC to the right angle and length, then drill a small hole at the end of the rod holder. Pass the string through the hole and and tie a knot in the line. On the other end attach the caribena or a clip which is attached to ring loop on the base of the built in rod holder to stop the rod holder from moving.

DIY Trident 13 Mod Pod Chopping Board


I made this bait chopping board to avoid destroying my Mod Pod and also I can remove it and clean it. It's really simple to make and all you'll need is some brass pipe clips, a couple screws and a piece of chopping board.

You can probably find most of these items around your house but if not they very cheap.

As you can see in the second picture its just a case of screwing the pipe clips to the board making sure they match up with the holes on the Mod Pod.

 

Tip: Make sure the screws you use aren't too long and stick out the other side of the board when you attaching the pipe clips.

TIP:


The Mod Pod for Ocean kayaks comes with a molded ruler on either side of the pod to measure your catch. The only problem is when you trying to read the size or take a photo of the length you can't really see the numbers.

 

What I've done is highlighted the ruler by using tip ex and now it's easier to read and can be seen better in photographs.

Telescopic Go Pro Pole upgrade!


I use this everytime I go out fishing and it can be placed in rod holders to give you all sorts of angles when filming your fishing trips. The best part though is it only costs around £15 to make. All you need is a cheap telescopic mop, I got mine from B&Q for £9. The next thing is put pipe insulation foam around the pole section that doesn't move and wrap it in electrical tape. This will not only allow the pole to float but it will give you a snug fit in your rod holders for a steady video.
