Rigging accessories and fishing tools will get an angler fired up just as much as that new yak they just bought. Getting the chance to rig up your new toy is enough to get any angler excited. Here’s some of the fishing tools and kayak accessories that we checked out at the ICAST show.
The eight-inch, Professional Pliers features Titanium Alloy jaws that are resistant to both rust and corrosion.
An integrated cutter easily slices through braid, mono, fluorocarbon and light wire. The multi-layer, two-tone, cold-molded Micarta® handles with full-tang construction ensure a firm grip, while a custom, hard-molded sheath with attached lanyard securely stores the tool when not in use. Both the Professional Snip and Professional Pliers are backed by the Cuda lifetime warranty.
The eight-inch, Professional Snip uses Titanium Non-stick, German 4116 stainless steel blades that are corrosion-resistant and include a micro-serrated edge to quickly cut strapping, netting and fins, in addition to wire, braid, mono and fluorocarbon. With blades that are five times harder than untreated stainless steel, it stays sharper, longer and provides a versatile, dependable tool while on the water.
The handles are multi-layer, two-tone, cold-molded Micarta® with full-tang construction and a lock for safety and storage. A custom, hard-molded sheath firmly holds the snip in place, with an attachable lanyard which adds safety and security for the tool while making cleanup a snap.
The Zooka II rod holder is an updated and improved Zooka Tube featuring the LockNLoad Mounting System. The enlarged design accommodates larger conventional fishing reels. The Zooka II will be available January 1st with an MSRP of $40.
The AR Tube is a tube style rod holder that can be open or closed on the bottom. The AR Tube will also feature YakAttack’s LockNLoad mounting system. The AR Tube will be available January 1st with an MSRP of $40.
Accommodating both RAM® fishing rod holders and the RAM® Tough-Pole™ action camera mount, this base is compatible with the RAM® Tough-Track™ and most third-party track mount systems. To install, simply slide the RAM® Track-Node™ base into a track mount system thanks to the connected T-Bolt and turn the circular knob to tighten in place. For 360 degree rotation, loosen the circular knob and easily swing your action camera or rod holder in and out of your vessel.
We are the only rod holder that grips the handle. This eliminates locking collars or straps, making it truly a quick release. The Stealth rod holder’s glass reinforced construction is stronger than other plastic rod holders on the market. The cam is made out of EPDM, the same material that engine gaskets are made of. Because the cam grips the rod, the angler can put reels in any position they like and the reel will stay in one place. The Stealth rod holder also has a lifetime guarantee.
The Tuff Krate from Flambeau Outdoors was purposefully engineered for the yakker. The Tuff Krate optimizes the customization possibilities for secure tackle organization and mounted accessory fixtures to enhance the freedom to fish. The Tuff Krate features rugged HDPE construction, 2 rod holders, and ample mounting surfaces for universal accessories. The Tuff Krate can store 8 Flambeau 4000 Series or 6 5000 Series Tuff Tainers.
