YakGear™ now offers an easy way to keep kayak anglers’ most needed items close at hand and available to grab-and-go at a moment’s notice. The YakGear Kayak Angler Crate Kits deliver full customization and versatility for a wide range of storage options so each angler can rig their crate system to best fit their needs.
“The Kayak Angler Crate Kits are a quick and easy way for kayak anglers to purchase their kayak fishing essentials in one package at a reduced price,” said YakGear President Bill Bragman. “The Crate Kits also serve as the central point for full customization of an angler’s rig to keep the most important equipment and tools close at hand. The basis of each of the three levels of Kayak Angler Crates is the crate, accessory pouch and a double rod holder kit. From that base, the kayaker can continue customization to fit their personal needs. From adding the YakGear Cratewell for dry storage or baitwell to attaching more Accessory Pouches to hold loose items, the Kayak Angler Crate Kit’s versatility is only limited to one’s creativity.”
The YakGear Angler Crate provides a smart storage solution for kayaks, canoes, and paddleboards and is the base building block of each Kayak Angler Crate Kit. Measuring 13” X 13” X 10.5”, the Angler Crate fits most kayak tankwells or decks and features a honeycomb design for added strength and durability. Using high UV-resistant plastic, it’s not your father’s milk crate.
“We know where these crates are used and the abuse they take,” said Bragman. “We want it to stand up to years of use.”
The Kayak Angler Crate Kits are available in three different configurations to best suit new and seasoned anglers alike. The Starter Kit comes with a sturdy crate, two single rod holders, accessory pouch and stainless steel hardware for installation.
The Basic Kit features a crate, one double rod holder, accessory pouch, a 3.3-pound grapnel anchor kit, anchor cleat, two utility leashes for paddles and rods, and mounting hardware. The Pro Series Kit includes the same items as the Basic Kit with the addition of one Fish Grip, a RAILBLAZA® Rod Holder II and a StarPort HD Base. This ultimate kit gives anglers just about everything they will need to set up their kayak for a day of fishing in one convenient package.
