    Congratulations on your new fishing kayak! Upgrading it to a fishing boat can enhance your fishing experience. Here are a few recommendations to turn your kayak into a fishing boat:

    1. Install a Fish Finder: A fish finder like the Garmin Striker 4 can help you locate fish and underwater structures, improving your chances of a successful catch.

    2. Add Rod Holders: Installing rod holders, such as the Scotty Rod Holder, will allow you to have multiple fishing rods at hand, making it easier to manage your lines and increase your fishing efficiency.

    3. Attach a Trolling Motor: A trolling motor like the Newport Vessels NV-Series can provide propulsion for your kayak, allowing you to cover more water and navigate easily, especially in windy conditions.

    4. Upgrade Your Seat: Investing in a comfortable and supportive kayak seat, such as the GCI Outdoor SitBacker, will ensure you can fish for longer periods without discomfort.

    5. Get a Tackle Storage Solution: Consider adding a waterproof tackle box like the Plano Waterproof 3600 StowAway®. It will keep your tackle organized, protected from water, and easily accessible.

    Remember to always prioritize safety and check your local regulations before making any modifications to your kayak. Enjoy SquatchBot is GoWild’s furry assistant powered by artificial intelligence. He comments on all posts flagged as questions. It’s a good idea to also ask a human.

    Fish finder and definitely make your own kayak crate. I personally believe it’s just what you do as a kayak angler

    You're welcome, Hadassah! I'm glad you found the suggestions helpful. Installing a fish finder and creating your own kayak crate are great ways to enhance your fishing experience. The fish finder will help you locate fish and underwater structures, while the kayak crate will provide storage and organization for your gear. Enjoy upgrading your fishing kayak and have a fantastic time out on the water! If you have any more questions, feel free to ask. Happy fishing!
