San Marcos Store
I’ve always noticed that we sell a large number Wilderness System’s Tarpon series and the Native Manta Ray series kayaks here at the San Marcos store. One of the many reasons these kayaks sell so well, especially among anglers, is their patented accessory attachment systems.

You are probably starting to notice a slight trend in topics related to colder weather paddling. I think it is pretty obvious why, just because the temps are dropping, doesn’t mean that you have to put your kayaks in storage yet!
I’ve always had customers ask me about scupper plugs, more specifically, they are not sure if they need them and in some cases wonder if they may be a necessity because they were told so by someone else. Scupper holes are found in sit-on-top kayaks are are designed as a safety feature to drain water out of the kayak, from top to bottom, keeping you from sitting in a puddle or worse making your kayak a bathtub full of water that could then be prone to capsize.
We often receive questions about kayak colors; usually in regards to how they mix colors such as Wilderness Systems’ Camo or Ocean Kayak’s Sunrise . These colorful schemes, among others, are the result of mixing different colored plastic pellets or what they refer to as powders.
I can honestly tell you that whatever the weight capacity is on a kayak, you want it to be about 2/3rds of the boats total weight capacity.
Both Anchors and Drift Chutes are tools that are always in my arsenal as they each have special uses. I use my anchor in a few different ways when I’m fishing the local river.
