    Hey guys.

    You ever lose a $500 rod reel combo in the water? I’ve almost lost a couple of expensive setups the past two years.

    Just want to bring to your attention these Savur Outdoors Rod Retrieval Devices.

    I’ve installed them on all my good rods.
    Check out their website.

    https://www.savuroutdoors.com/

    I don’t get any kickback. Just thought I’d do this as a PSA.

    I dropped a Dobyns with a Curado DC two years ago. But I reached in with my entire arm, shoulder and the upper half of my body to grab it before it fell into the abyss. 45 degrees of water. Never doing that again.

    No. It’s usually glued in. you have to use a sharp utility knife to cut it off. There’s some good you tube videos that show installation

    here’s one after a quick search.

    My rods float. I guess my reels are too cheap and have too much plastic on them. As for the kayaks, too many gators around here. Twenty years ago Rayburn was 11 feet low. That pulled all of them out of the dried-up creeks and sloughs and into the lake itself. Man, there was a bunch of them. You don't know that many are back in there. I've stepped on three gators wading: two in the same day spring wade fishing beds behind the buck brush in Mud Creek on Rayburn, and a third retrieving a duck in the Fall. All cold, sluggish. Lucky me. I DO NOT wade fish anymore.

    My rods are uglystik gx2.... The rod with reel costs $40. When I get my new custom made kistler rod then I will be all over something like this.

    Picked up my first kayak today.

    Any tips for a one person loading? I'm using a Thule Dockgrip.

    bass plus kayak equals awesome.
    I see people coming at it from the side. they load the boat up on the SUV on the side and then pirouette it into the cradles. most of my buds put the boat up there, upside down.

    I actually ordered the thule mat yesterday. The rear has the felt material. Once it slides to the rear to those mounts, it actually slides a bit smoother.

    I may try the loading from the side method. I seen a few videos where the mounts are reversed for paddle boards which may work better if i actually load the kayak upside down.

    I appreciate the tips.

    I've got a 10' sit-in fishing kayak now, but it drains very poorly, I have to store it 30+ minutes from where I live, and I don't really want to run a roof rack when I get a shell (or leave the shell door open on the trail). As a result, I'm starting to look into selling it and swapping it out for an inflatable fishing kayak, since drainage wouldn't be an issue and I could store it at home and keep it in the bed of the truck. It also gives me a great excuse to get onboard air. Any opinions on inflatable fishing kayaks, in particular the Sea Eagle 385fta and 350fx?

    I've done river paddling with people who had Sea Eagles. They are stable, inflatable, and very portable. Be sure to use the skeg for better tracking. The downside is the wind blows them around, and it's tough paddling into a headwind.

    Any word on the durability and as to how comfortable they are to something with either the "normal" kayak seat or the stadium-style seat? I like the idea of the high, swiveling seat version in theory, but it seems like it wouldn't be very comfortable to paddle from that high above the water.

    They all had the inflatable seat, I've not seen the swivel stadium seat. Durability looks good, this one lady has had hers for years.
