I have a Pro Angler on order - hoping to be fishing in it by June.

Thinking about the rigging - maybe going with the YakAttack Gear Tracs for the accessory panels, for the fish finder and a couple rod holders - maybe Ram tubes or Scottys. Any thoughts on this setup?

It's a sound plan. I went with the full length versions for future expandability. I currently only carry two rods but I may expand that to three soon.

Bought the 8 inch gear tracks to hold my fish finder and ram rod holders. Great set-up. Try it, you'll like it. :D

Excellent...I ended up picking the 16" ones from my local shop. I really like the idea of the side panels on the PA - and not having to drill a bunch of holes in the rest of the boat. I will end up putting a mighty mount in the rear for my Visipole though...

I installed a Scotty Flush Mount in the rear next to the rudder control box to mount the Hobie branded VisiCarbon II

It's all subjective, so do what makes sense to you. I change my setup around depending on what I want with me.

2 - 16" trax up front for FF, GoPro, 2-Ram rod holders, and maybe a GPS mount. All accessories fit in the trax with a twist.

On my back deck is a 4" trax for my VisiCarbon Pro. Also Hobie side rocket launchers for rod storage. More rocket launchers on my crate. I'll keep a stake-out pole, or break down my paddle and store it vertically to get it out of the way.

One comment about my Ram rod holders: the butt of the tube is solid and a couple of my rods do not drop in far enough, so I'm probably going to cut the bottom out of at least one of them and see how that goes. If I had paid attention when I was buying them, I'd likely done something different.
