Just like a car or a motorcycle, making customizations to your fishing craft pretty much comes natural.
Feeling unsure about drilling holes in my kayak at random, I called the folks over at Canoe KY. Located on Elkhorn Creek outside of Frankfort Kentucky, Canoe KY has been a premier resource for paddling sports in our state since 1981. The business owners, Nathan and Allison are always so friendly when I have questions or need help with something, but on top of that comes hands-on experience and a thorough knowledge of paddle sports and their product lines.
So, I made the call. The call asking Nathan if he would mind helping me “trick” my yak. He quickly responded for me to bring my kayak and “c’mon over” so away to Canoe KY I went.
Once I arrived, I showed Nathan where I wanted my Scotty rod holders located. He made some recommendations of how to do the job and even had all the necessary hardware in stock to start rigging.
After Nathan, Brett, and area kayak fisherman Tommy Puckett finished the work I had originally asked for, Nathan went a step further and mounted the transducer for my fish finder! I had planned on trying it myself, but leave it to him to have a better plan!
I just returned from a 5-day yak fishing trip to Little Talbot Island where we fished for redfish and sea-trout (I’ve been told to call ’em specks). The rod holders worked out exactly as I hoped they would and the trip was a blast!!
I can’t say enough about how great Canoe KY has been to work with! Whether you’re looking for your own watercraft, wanting to rent for a day trip, or want to make some changes to something you already have, be sure to give them a call at 888-CANOEKY.
