Fish Talk / Re: Difference between the Black and Blue rockfish....

Blacks have a more rounded anal fin. Blues have a more triangular anal fin though the edges are slightly rounded. The difference in the fins is very apparent however.

I bought a couple of these at Cabelas.
Rod Leashes

Basically they are the cheap velcro straps affixed to a 6ft or so bungee cord. It wouldn't be very hard to make em yourself.

Thanks folks. I plan to get rods that are at least 2 piece so that I can stow them away before launches or landings.
I've invested in leashes for my rods and paddles along with some other stuff. Hopefully I'll be picking up my yak at Sean's pretty soon.

General Fishing Tips / Rod leashes.

Just wondering how many of you guys out there use rod leashes.

Me, I'm just starting out kayak fishing and just bought my first yak.  I've been doing an inventory of all the stuff that I would need and I came across some rod leashes at Cabelas.
Have any of you guys lost any tackle while landing a fish? I would expect that when hoisting up a monster ling or halibut from the depths, you would have to reach for a net/gaff to land the fish on the yak. During this process do you tend to just 'let go' of your rod in order to bring the fish up? I would think that you could lose some of your nice equipment in a hurry for sure this way.

I've bought a bunch of stuff and plan to secure pretty much everything that I can being as clumsy as I am.

Hey Elric. Hope you're doing okay over in Vegas.
Thanks for the advice. I'm trying to figure out where to store everything conveniently on the kayak so that everything is reachable easily.

I'll look into getting some waterproof boxes for the tackle. My aim would be to bring only the stuff that I will need and leave the extra tackle stuff at home. I'm almost there though. The only thing thats left are some tackle boxes, thigh straps, cart and the wetsuit.

Just in case someone needed one.

I'm new to kayak fishing and have been gearing up for the couple of weeks in order to get ready. I bought the kayak (FnD) from GWKC and have bought a seat, paddle, rod leashes, paddle leash, fishfinder, folding knife, signal mirror, drybags, sponge, gaff, vhf radio, whistle, gps and a few other small things. I already have the baitbucket, rods etc.  I'm now looking for a tackle box that is water proof if there is such a thing.

What kind of tackle boxes do you use? Where do you usually keep them on the kayak? I'm moving into my new apartment and hopefully, I'll have the kayak ready shortly thereafter.


It was nice talking to you yesterday and welcome aboard. Hope to catch up to you on the water one of these days.


Thanks Freddie. Hopefully we'll meet up on the water in a few weeks. I just bought a FnD off Sean so its no longer going back for me.

Hi all. I'm new to the board here and I was at the kayak tryout event at Del Valle yesterday. Chuck did a great job setting up a demo kayak in front and he explained the basics very well. He explained many things to me that I wanted to know about kayak fishing in general, what kind of paddle, fishfinder etc to use. He certainly brought up some points that I never thought of and made me change my mind about what kind of equipment to get. The info was very valuable to me and I'm sure to a lot of people there as well.

I got to meet a lot of members from here at the event and they really made me feel like I was going to become part of something special. Thanks to all who answered all my questions that I had. I'm still in the process of purchasing my FishnDive so I have at least 3 weeks before I will be starting my first kayak fishing trip.
