I just recently got the Ascend FS10 Angler Kayak and was hoping to upgrade it a little bit

I was wondering if anyone could help me out with suggestions on products and ways to do so


I am hoping to add - 1. Another rod holder behind the seat
2. Lighting for night fishing
- not sure what i need to meet safety regultions
3. and any live-well options?

Thank you

divingbeaver, I have a FS10 and have added a Scotty Rod holder in place of the one supplied up front. I have also added a fish finder mount, cup holder(only used when fish finder not in mount), and anchor system, all Scotty products. I do not have a livewell but I put a softside large cooler in the back well (strapped in) and fill it with ice. As I catch the keeper fish I put them on ice in the cooler. You could add scotty rod holder on the back if you wish (they have several different mounts) but I would think it would be hard to reach?

I like the scotty products because they have several different mount types. Also all the products (anchor, cup holder, fish finder mount etc) are interchangable. I can move the anchor from side to side or put the rod holder in the center or on the right or left. Hope this helps
