It would probably be very difficult. You would need to stand up in order to see the fish as you go along. I do not know of anyone that founders out of a kyak.

Tell me about those rod holders up front. It looks like they swivel. Where can I get some like that?

Thanks OB

Morning OB
They are scotty swivel rod holders and they hold a piece of 1and1/4 pvc perfect. They do ajust up and down. Ajust up fpr paddling and down for gigging. Don't want to paddle long distance with the drag. I used 2 aquastar 100 watt lights and they worked great. Aquastar now has led lights that I think will work better. My yak is very wide and stable,which allows me to stand and pole. Nice thing is that I'm able to just sit and pull myself under most docks, instead of having to paddle around them. I can get as skinny as I need to. even at low tide. I put my battery in the crate box behind the seat and this balanced things up pretty well. You can get the rod holder just about anywhere, I bought mine off ebay and the pair were only 20 bucks.

Hi Bama thanks for the info. I have some underwater dive lights for shooting videos. They are 100 watt halogens with reflectors. I plan on mounting them similar to the way you have yours mounted. I'm going to mount them on a Gheenoe I just bought. Wish me luck.

Can you give me a part number on those. Ebay has a zillion of different ones. So far none look like yours. Know of any around here locally? I'm going to Mobile shortly and can stop @ Bass pro or that Kayak Co. in Fairhope. Maybe they might have some. Thanks again

Bamafan611, gotta love your handle, Roll Tide................
I see your gig in one of the pictures and it looks kinda like the new one I bought over the winter from Skinny Water Products.
What kind is yours ?

Nice rig, it must be easier than I first thought to flounder out of a kayak.
Is there anything you can't do in a kayak..........................?
