How to install your fishing accessories on your Hooké AIR 11’6 X TAIGA

Tip 1 

Attach your SUP anchor to the metal D-RING on the front of your inflatable paddle board. This will make it easy to access and drop in the water when you’re ready   to immobilize your paddle board. The SUP anchor is a simple solution for fishing in windy conditions and in waters with strong currents. 

Tip  2 

The Hooké AIR 11'6 x TAIGA is equipped with 4 (four) accessory mounts. Secure the Scotty mounting plate (or accessory mount) with the 4 screws using a Phillips- head screwdriver. An accessory mount is included in your kit.  

Tip 3 

For the static position, place the rod holder included in your kit, or the Scotty brand rod holder, in the mounting plate (accessory mount) and orient it towards the front of the board at a 45-degree angle. 

For troll fishing, placing the rod holder perpendicular to the board (at a 90-degree angle) and closer to the water’s surface is recommended. The rod holder included in your Hooké AIR 11'6 kit can be placed at different angles.
