Turn your crate into a livewell or dry storage!

There are a ton of options out there for kayak tackle storage, sometimes it can get overwhelming. Most kayak anglers start out using a milk crate, and a lot of anglers prefer that crate to this day. YakGear has created a way to turn your crate into dry storage, or even a live well with the CrateWell. Check out the full press release below.

One of the most versatile tools in a fisherman’s possession becomes even more useful with the upcoming launch of YakGear’s newest product, the CrateWell. Available soon through and local YakGear dealers, the CrateWell upgrades kayak angler crates into livewells for bait, or dry storage to keep important items protected.

Constructed of durable PVC tarpaulin, the CrateWell fits standard 13-by-13-by-11 milk crates, as well as taller varieties. Its three-sided zipper and Velcro lid keep items inside dry, although added care should be implemented to protect belongings in instances of heavy water splashes, soaking or capsized watercraft.

The versatile product can also be modified for a bubbler system, not included with the purchase.

The CrateWell allows fishermen to upgrade and repurpose the milk crates many already have aboard their kayaks, boats and canoes, said YakGear President Bill Bragman. That proves invaluable when space is limited.

“Why clutter up your watercraft with extra equipment you don’t really need?” he asked. “You have to be smart with storage when you’re out on the water. Our guys created the CrateWell as a simple way to help people up their fishing game.”
