1) Hobie H-Crate Jr $132.00 

Hobie’s H-Crate Jr took the same features and design of the wildly popular H-Crate and shrunk its footprint. At 14-inches squared, the H-Crate Jr will fit in almost any kayak for your storage needs. The optional lid zips up easily and keeps your gear from falling out. The Hobie H-Rails that surround the top of the crate are perfect for mounting a flag or any other accessory that you want.

5) Backwater Assassin Paddle $159.99

After years of paddlers begging for it, Backwater Paddles took the popular Assault hand paddle and created a full kayak paddle around the design. The Assassin paddle has the patented hook and teeth blade design gives anglers an extra set of tools. The carbon fiber shaft adjusts up to 260cm and the best part about the paddle is that it floats.

6) Wilderness Systems Catch Cooler $169.99 

This catch cooler is a perfect fit for most Wilderness Systems sit-on-top kayaks, but works for all other brands. The isolated pockets allow you to keep your catch cold and your drinks colder without having to mix the two. The larger area features a tough material that will hold up to sharp fins without puncturing. The Catch Cooler also includes ice pack pockets so you don’t have to fill the cooler with ice that will inevitably melt and weigh your kayak down.

7) Railblaza C-Tug Cart $149.99 

Kayak carts can be one of the most frustrating parts of kayak fishing. Every kayak angler knows the feeling of dumping a fully loaded kayak on the way to launch because of a subpar cart. The Railblaza C-Tug cart fixes those woes. The C-Tug cart adjusts so every kayak will perfectly fit. The high grip, rubber tread puncture-free wheels will roll on any surface but sand (the sand version is $40 more). The C-Tug cart also dismantles in seconds so you can keep it in your kayak while you fish.
