I bought a 12' Heritage Angler and have taken it out twice and have a few questions.
I can't reach my tackle box when it is strapped down behind me, do y'all carry a few lures in a vest pocket or some small box in the seating area or am I the only one who can't get to my stuff when I want to swap lures?
I also cannot easily reach behind me so I have tried different approaches for my tackle. If I am not sure what I will be using I carry a large watertight dry box
and keep it between my legs. If I am using specific tackle I normally carry a smaller watertight box
. I use leashes on them to help in case the kayak tips but also to help pull them to me if they get kicked out arm's reach.
As others have mentioned you can use extenders on your Scotty mount to bring it within arm's reach but you may end up with it interfering with your getting in/out of the kayak.
