Does anyone use their lanyards while trolling, as I have fitted some for the trip out and in in case of accidents (which can happen while trolling I know) but what are the chance of a fish pulling a rod out of flush mount holder.
Dallas i thank you for giving me this oportunity to use this stupid picture.I have posted this story before, but why not again Razz
That sinking feeling! AGGGHHHHHH. I have never watched gear sinking down out of sight, but I have watched plenty of good fish that get away at the side of the yak and they just sink down and away. I never want to see a rod going down like that.PhilipL said:The adventure paddle keeper is not very good. Occasionally, the front of the paddle dips into the water; when this happens while peddling, the paddle really digs in. Anyway, this happened on my second trip out - with the front digging in, the back end of the paddle lifts up violently - flip goes the rod out of the rod holder....I had only just removed the lanyard for rigging and had peddled off forgetting to reattach. Hence the new rod n reel purchase recently. Never again. Its an odd feeling watching your gear go down and not being able to do anything about it.
Lanyard on, its not worth the grief.
