    Yeah, I'm totally fine with swapping out the trolley line ever so often. That's cheap! LOL.

    Good point. I understand. As I mentioned I rarely anchor. Also, I avoid kayak fishing in areas with strong currents or heavy seas. When I anchor I do so mainly to spot cast with the wind at my back. If it's too rough to do that safely, I'm certainly not attaching my kayak to the bottom from the stern or bow!

    So I went ahead and mounted the pulleys deck side and then ran my paracord down the gun wales. I've got an extra line guide in case that one gets broken and I'm fine with having to replace my paracord. But all in all, I think it looks pretty sharp.

    Hi Mytmouse,

    Do you intend on getting those kayaks slime this year? Where do you plan on fishing since you moved away from the Maryland area?

    What's up Moc? I'll be focusing on the ES of VA in the Spring and probably the regular haunts during the Summer (Lynnhaven, Rudee, or the CBBT). I'm sure at some point I'll be up in MD fishing, just don't know when!

    Thanks guys! I hope it works well too! I'll know soon enough! I still have to install a cam cleat, and I think I'm gonna throw a couple backing plates on my mounts then I'm done with rigging.

    I'm not that close to Rudee... It's still a 2 hour ride for me. But that is shorter than 4+! Funny thing is I have yet to hit Rudee. I always end up somewhere else! But it's on the list for sure.
