Offshore kayak fishing set up

I had a lot people ask about how I set up my kayak for offshore. So I made a video. It is a little long but I hope that I cover everything.

    I live on the West Coast and am really impressed with your knowledge and set up. Could you suggest a two man for all around inshore and eventually off shore. I have tried the madriver 15'8 and like everything but the seats. I have seen the native two seater and love the seats but am not sure of the rest. Can you stand up in these? I was thinking of a small trolling motor as well. Any thoughts and suggestions are greatly appreciated. Your deep jigging videos are bringing out the true adventurer in me. I have a 24 ft boat and go out 50 miles but this looks to be the real thing. Thanks for any info.

    Wow. What a detailed report. Thank you so much for your time and efforts. Very much appreciated. I hope the mods can make this a sticky or at least a report easily found in the future. Thanks!

    Wow, great video Pete. I don't think the length is too long as you were covering great material throughout the whole video. I definitely found a lot of useful information as I am new to kayak fishing and am currently saving up to buy my first kayak, hoping to have one before the end of the year. I guess if I have any kayak questions I now know who to ask, you seem extremely knowledgeable. Do you do any inshore kayak fishing as well? I'm a little leery about being offshore in a kayak but it looks like a lot of fun. Keep the great material coming and I'm sure I will have some more questions for you soon enough.

    That is an amazing setup! I got some work to do on my kayak to make it set up for ocean.
    It works 60% of the time all the time......
