Hey back on the site after being off for a bit...but this is the first year for me with my cuda....still trying to learn on this thing....when I first joined yrs ago there were a few guys on here that would host a kayak rigging day...sounds like that is what we need now more than ever.

Congrats on the cuda. It is a stable fishing machine. You can turn sideways in your seat to reach behind you. The dogleash can be attached to a milk crate and you can clip a large caribiner to the front handle of the yak. You leave the leash open or free to fall and use a cleat to tie off the anchor when you pull it up.
Drill a hole in the center of the handle on a cast iron or rubber coated cast iron dumbell and pull enough line through the hole to allow 5 or 6 wraps around the dumbell handle. Then tie it off, snug the knot down tight and but the end of the line. Voila! There are fancier solutions too, but that's the quickest and easiest. If I can get my dropbox account to play nice with our forum, I'll post up some pics next week. Check back thru the previous posts here, there are probably pics already.
