Hobie Accessories Prove a Solid Complement to Any Kayak Fishing Rig

OCEANSIDE, Calif. – Whether you like to keep your kayak fishing simple or prefer to outfit with all the bells and whistles, there’s no doubt that some level of accessorizing can make for better days on the water. From live bait and tackle management solutions to products improving onboard ergonomics and boat transport, Hobie offers a complete range of highly practical accessories for today’s kayak angler.

Livewell V2

Looking for a better way to keep live bait frisky? Look no further than Hobie’s eight-gallon Livewell V2. The Livewell V2 is built from heavy-duty molded plastic, making it lightweight and strong. It features a sturdy, eight-inch Twist and Seal hatch lid for quick access and secure bait containment. A high-quality sealed marine switch controls a high-output pump that circulates oxygenated water in the tank, keeping fish alive and healthy. An adjustable drain tube allows for easy water-level management, and removable tank partitions keep bait accessible in a rounded environment. A pump cap is included for filling the tank with non-circulating water, while a threaded drain plug allows the tank to be completely emptied after each use. Hobie’s Livewell V2 comes factory-equipped with three rod holders, and up to eight rod holders can be added, depending on the kayak model.


For anglers seeking additional onboard security, stability and ergonomic freedom, Hobie’s adjustable H-Bar provides extra confidence when entering or exiting your kayak, or while standing and fishing. Hobie’s H-Bar standing support lets you take your focus off balance and put it on fishing. It’s lightweight, strong and folds down flat when not in use. It also integrates with all Hobie H-Rail accessories and is compatible with a wide variety of kayaks. Pair H-bar standing support with Hobie’s Sidekick Ama Kit for the ultimate stand-up fishing package.


Kayak anglers absolutely love the Hobie H-Crate, which provides tackle storage and gear management in one easy-to-reach space. H-Crate features four vertical rod holders with built-in rod retainers. Unique and versatile grid walls feature a molded hole pattern for attaching additional rod holders. Two sizes are available, both featuring H-Rail carry handles that accept any of Hobie’s H-Rail accessories with no drilling required. Add Hobie’s H-Crate Soft Cover to keep your gear safely secured and out of the elements.

Trax 2-30 Plug-In Cart

Hobie Plug-In Carts facilitate easier handling and transport of your fishing kayak, providing enhanced access to a host of fishing spots that would otherwise prove challenging. Four Plug-In Cart models are available, plus the versatile Hobie Dolly. Hobie’s highest capacity plug-in cart – the Trax 2-30 – is the top choice for serious anglers, affording transport over a variety of terrain via a rugged frame and specially designed pneumatic tires. The Trax 2-30 plugs into the existing scuppers of any rigid-hull Hobie kayak and features a strong, welded, stainless steel frame. The durable 30cm pneumatic tires can tackle any surface, from concrete to the extremely soft stuff. Wheels are easily removed for compact storage.
