My DIY OS Hawaiian Spear Gaff

I wanted a gaff for my kayak when going offshore but did not want to go the traditional gaff route so I decided to make my own version of a hawaiian / kage spear gaff. This video shows how I made it using a 5/16″ rod and how easily it all went together. The best part for me is that it floats and I can easily remove / replace the spear portion when and if necessary.

The file for the 3dprinted insert can be downloaded using the link below and is available for 5/16″, 3/8″, 7/16″ or 1/2″ diameter rods.

All Day Bassin

It turned out to be an absolutely gorgeous day to be outdoors to do some fishing. Spent the whole day with my buddy Ron hitting different spots on a few of the lakes in Maitland, Florida. Although I chose to try an assortment of different lures and plastics, the fishes only desire that day was the watermelon red super fluke which is why it is still my number one favorite plastic bait in my tackle box for large mouth bass to date.

My Kayak Trailer Transformations

As my kayak evolves so does its trailer. This video is comprised of a compilation of past to present photos on how my kayak trailer, which initially started out life as a typical single jet ski trailer, and continues to get modified as my transportation needs changes to accommodate my kayak. Hopefully these changes that I have made and continue to make to my trailer may help or inspire others in some way with ideas for their trailer build.

DIY Suzuki 2.5 Outboard Flush Stand

Just wanted to share a simple diy outboard flush stand specifically sized for my Suzuki DF2.5 outboard. I needed something compact that did not take up a lot of space and could be quickly assembled / disassembled and put away and this build has met all of my requirements. Hopefully this diy may aid others as it has for me whom are in search of the same requirements for their little Suzuki outboard.

No Trailer Required! 🤪👍

For me dealing with a trailer gets to be a hassle sometimes so I’m pretty excited about this new project in which I will be able to haul up to two slayer propel kayaks on the back of my mini pickup truck with plenty of space left over for equipment in the truck bed! Loving the crossbar hull cradles on the wooden yak rack. Easy loading even by myself! I’ve already sealed the wood so all that is left to do now is remove the saddles and paint the wooden frame. Can’t wait to get it finished!
