The Kayak Fishing Drift Chute will help you set up the proper drift in heavy wind or current. Having the right speed on a drift can mean the difference between catching fish or getting skunked. The Kayak Fishing Drift Chute is an easy and affordable way to control drift speed and fishing angle.

Don't fish a lake in the wind without one! The first time I deployed the chute I started catching fish. Just watch out you don't hook your drift chute line when reeling in your catch:-)
14 foot Hobie Pro Angler in 12mph winds. couldn't slow drift down much at all. Might try 2 together and see. Construction is great weight on bottom and buoyant up top makes it deploy instantly. REDO THE FACTORY KNOT! other posts have mentioned it, Mine came undone as well but I didn't lose the chute did lose the clip and line though
Line should have been secured better , but with a little effort I re-attached the line and it worked as advertised. I dont use my Kayak wher the winds are over 10mph, so the chuter worked perfectly for me. No regrets when you know a product's limitations.
better quality than others I've seen, float on top/ sand bag on bottom, stays open and slows the wind drift considerably. Does not help in a current, moves right along with the boat, but that's what an anchor is for. Money well spent.
