Kayak Box

Post by GaterB » Mon Dec 23, 2019 7:27 pm

What, in y’all’s opinion, is the best “box” for kayak fishing? I want one that offers ample storage in combination with the ability to hold up to 5 combos. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Lots of people like the YakAttack Black box. Comes with three rods pre-installed.

The Hobie H-Crate is also an option. A bit more expensive, but it looks like a bit quality product.

What's your budget? If you're trying to spend the least amount of money, you can't go wrong with a milk crate. I'm still using one right now and I attached 6 rod holders to it. It can hold plenty of tackle and other accessories that I might need out on the water.

I’ve used a few things over the years. The YakAttack Blackpak is the best out there. It holds six rod comfortably.

I personally really like the blackpack. I have been kayak fishing for about 5 years now and have used all of the homemade crates and they just don't work as well. I would recommend getting the nucanoe one as it comes with hinges or just order the hinges afterward. The hinges go a long way and are a big quality of life improvement. I have some 3D printed brackets on mine that hold an extra rod holder on each side and they are slightly angled in. That in combination with a bit of padding here and there to dampen the noise has created a great crate for me.

This is what I use as well. Fits perfectly behind my cooler in the rear tank tankwell of my Outback and has plenty of storage space.

Milk crate. Hard to beat for the price. PVC pipes for rod holders.
Cheap effective and never felt like I needed an upgrade.
Also, holes in the crate allow me to put a steak out pole through it.
