Has anyone built a layout style blind for a kayak? I'm stationed in the Florida pan handle and don't feel like messing with a boat in all the marshy areas I can get to. But I have a 14' fishing kayak and looking for ideas about how to build a blind. I would mainly be anchoring in shallow water or setting it up along a shore line like a layout blind. Any ideas would be appreciated.

My NuCanoe with home made Ghillie blind.  The big bump is a small bean bag chair I covered with ghillie material so that I can lay down yet still have my head up a little...easier to see duck coming in.

I had to drain about 1/2 the beads out to get the right size, still dry vac'ing beads out of the garage.

Hey everyone. I just started working on a kayak blind myself. I am using rust-oleum camo paint. I used a primer that they make also. Has anyone had any experience with this paint? If so how does it work? Any advice would be appreciated.

I did not use primer, figured the paint would chip/flake off anyway and I'd reapply each fall.  Sorry, cannot help there.

I've had good luck with the Krylon fusion paint. It is made to adhere to plastic and once it is on the plastic you can rough it up and other paint will stick to it. So use the fusion as a base layer, then add your other camo colors over it. It is not prefect and will scratch off sometimes, but it adheres to plastic better than any other paint I have ever used.
