I have a pelican 100 (10') sit in kayak and a dagger 15-6. I use a 2x4 that I attach to my fore-deck X bungies with a wire-tie. I use two coated wall hooks (shape of a square ? where the dot is the screw-like a bicycle hanger). The hooks are set in such a way as to keep the whole works on top and centered (T shape). I am thinking about adding a second set of wall hooks closer to the cockpit, but worry that they may impede my paddle stroke in the short yak. On my short yak, I put the 2x4 through the bow rope handle as well and it extends off the bow. You can drop a pole, and use a fore-deck bungie to hold the handle down to the deck, or avoid the bungies by putting 4 hooks in an H shape. I have often drifted left with a pole out the bow, one in a holder tied to the milk crate behind me, and casting from right to left (in the direction I am drifting). Works particularly well when fishing for pan fish. Enjoy!
