This kit comes with everything you need to turn a 19″ x 13″ milk crate into a multi-functional kayak fishing accessory. With tapped holes to allow for the attachment of after market gear tracks, slots cut out to house pliers or fish grips, and even a slot that allows for a 5 gallon bucket to fit snug in the center of the crate that can be used as a live bait container. For the fisherman who enjoys having his PVC rod holders in his crate, there are four holes cut out in the corners to slide some PCV in to cure that itch.
The more hooks you have in the water, the better your chances for catching fish. To keep more hooks in the water, you need fishing rod holders. You can purchase dedicated rod holders from a store, or you can save money by constructing them out of PVC pipe. Properly designed PVC rod holders are easy to assemble and just as easy to bring home with your catch.

Drill two holes straight through each PVC rod holder 1 inch and 3 inches from the bottom. Enlarge the outer holes with a drill bit large enough to accommodate the shaft of a screwdriver. Attach the individual rod holders to the rod holder frame at 6-inch intervals on either side of the frame with wood screws.
Take the number of rod holders you have cut and divide by two, then multiply that number by six. This determines the length of the completed rod holder assembly. For example, if you have 10 fishing rods, you would divide that by 2 and get 5. You then multiply that by 6 inches to determine that your PVC rod holder must be at least 30 inches long, because you want your individual holders spaced about 6 inches from each other. The total number of holders is divided by two because the holders will be attached to both sides of a 2x4.
