When accessorizing your kayak, consider the kind of fishing you do, where you’ll be fishing, and how you’ll transport your kayak.
Space is at a premium in fishing kayaks, so storage and organizational aids can make your angling efforts more efficient. But with so little room, you need to decide if the benefits of a particular accessory are worth the space it takes up.
With so much variety among kayak makes and models, there are few one-size-fits-all accessories. So, before permanently installing anything, make sure it fits properly and won’t interfere with propelling or transporting the kayak, or your fishing. The old saying “measure twice, cut once” definitely applies.
