First Bass on the Blue Sky Angler 360

First look at the 360 Angler from Blue Sky. More photos from our fishing trip can be seen at @headwaterskayak IG Page.

Met up with William Pfingst from the Jackson Fishing Team, and he was the first one to take the new Blue Sky Angler 360 out for a demo. Although he was familiar with the drive system he was brand new to the boat. He and I both were skeptical of the functionality of the craft, but after a day of fishing its easy to see why they created this new platform. It’s insanely stable, easy to fish from, and very easy to control from the seated or standing position. This boat with a motor will open up a whole new style of solo fishing craft. Very impressed!

5 Essential Upgrades For Native Watercraft Titan

After a year of selling the Native Watercraft Titan, and putting hundreds of guys on the water with them, these are the top 5 things we found make for a better experience on the water.

1. Upgrade the Pedals! The ones that come stock are cheap, and start to squeak early on. I recommend these pedals. I took the pegs out of one side so I could use it bare foot and with a bootie.

https://www.amazon.com/FOOKER-Composite-Mountain-High-Strength-Bikesflat/dp/B07JFDFM4Y?ref_=Oct_BSellerC_3404891_1&pf_rd_p=fd5e0a0c-cbbe-5818-9325-ae502a23c5a7&pf_rd_s=merchandised-search-6&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_i=3404891&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=YQPG9543WPDC7EW8YMFB&pf_rd_r=YQPG9543WPDC7EW8YMFB&pf_rd_p=fd5e0a0c-cbbe-5818-9325-ae502a23c5a7

2. The second must do upgrade is the Stop Gap Weed Guard. This week guard presses onto the drive itself and is made out of a heavy duty polymer so it wont fail, like so many of the 3D printed ones we’ve seen out there. We have them for sale in the shop and we would be happy to ship one out.

3. Boonedox Landing Gear: The #1 upgrade we suggest. Makes loading uploading, and transport to the water a breeze. They mount in minutes to the track without drilling any holes. Please note you need the Wide bar and track mount hardware in order to mount it to your yak. Hit us up if you have specific questions.

Landing Gear for Over sized kayaks

4. Boonedox Rudder upgrade: Adds stiffness, tracking, and durability. $75 and insanely easy to install. One screw, and your on your way.

Kayak Rudder

5. Burley Pro Titan steering upgrade kit: The single most important things you can do to enhance your steering, and beef up your system. The Boonedox rudder adds strain to the system, and this upgrades adds a ton of strength and security.

Feelfree Dorado On Water Review + Capsize & Reentry

Thank for for joining us today. After literally Years of waiting we finally hit the water in the new Feelfree Kayaks Dorado!!! All and all I think its an awesome boat that stands apart from its competition in many ways. The deck layout, lighting, ability to motorize the drive, are all things that put it into a class of its own. However the overall handing of the boat is not up to par with some of the other boats I’ve demoed such as a PA, Native Titan, or a Jackson Coosa. It would really depend on the persons priorities, when deciding which would be a better fit. I plan on posting a review of the Dorado motorized next week, so hopefully that will help paint a fuller picture of the boats capabilities.

For now don’t hesitate to reach out. If you want to take a road trip to Lodi CA we would be more than happy get on the water with you. Please call in advance so we know your coming!
