ULTIMATE Kayak Crate: The YakAttack BlackPak Pro

The Ole Milk Crate

The milk crate… used for years as a carrier of milk, garage organizer, and a step stool when the ladder was nowhere to be found. This fairly simple item was also occasionally used by fishermen to hold anchor line, tackle boxes, and any other loose gear in their boats. You could find them just about anywhere from behind the gas station and on the side of the road, to your favorite donut shop.

I used the word “could” because they were seen just about anywhere until kayak fishing became popular…

After a few kayak anglers realized this simple item could be transformed into the ULTIMATE tackle and rod storage system, milk crates seemed to almost go extinct…Unless you made a trip down to your local lake where you would likely find every milk crate in the area slap-full of tackle and strapped to the back of a kayak.

This trend lasted for many years and is still prevalent in many kayak anglers setups, but there is a new sheriff in town… One that might just kick the ole trusty milk crate to the curb once and for all. 

Enter: The YakAttack BlackPak

The BlackPak gave our trusty milk crates a run for their money. It created a fully enclosed solution for protecting your gear and gave kayak anglers more than enough real estate to bring more rods than they would ever need. This original model found its way into the rear tank wells of kayaks for years, but as the sport evolved, so did the need for a more advanced crate.

A few companies produced their “attempt” at the ultimate kayak crate, but the majority of them fell short in one way or another. Lack of storage, unstable rod holders, unreliable latches, and the list goes on… 

The OG designer of the “milk crate reimagined” was quiet for a few years allowing each designer to pitch their product to the market.

As time passed, whispers of a BlackPak 2.0, or BlackPak PRO as it was later called became louder.

In the summer of 2022, YakAttack dropped a bombshell on the kayak fishing industry with the release of its newest feature product: The BlackPak Pro

Available in 3 different sizes and multiple different color ways, this product revolutionized everything we knew about storage on a fishing kayak. From a 25% weight reduction compared to its predecessor, to a hinged lid, adjustable rod holders, and a whole host of accessories that allow you to truly customize it, this product simply blew its competition out of the water.

The key feature that allows users to fully customize the BlackPak Pro is the revolutionary GridLoc 2D mounting system. The entire outside and inside of the crate features a multitude of mounting locations that allow you to add rod holders, camera poles, battery mounts, tackle storage, and just about anything else you could ever imagine. 

To top it off, this product is MADE IN THE USA by a team of kayak anglers dedicated to providing the highest quality products possible.
