A Guide to Kayak Fishing

Published January 10th, 2018 by Bernardo

The perfect technique for how to fish from a kayak comes through in-depth education and years of practice. The good news is that it's much easier to learn about the ideal kayak fishing gear you need to get started. This kayak fishing guide has all the information you need to make an informed purchase.

Transporting Your Kayak

Unless you can keep your kayak right next to the water at all times, you'll have to buy a kayak you can get to and from your spot. Luckily, kayaks don't require a trailer. You can transport your kayak on top of your car, truck, or SUV. If you want to get somewhere farther away from a good docking point, you can even bring the kayak there in a larger boat.

Where to Fish

An important starting point for how to kayak fish is knowing where to go. It can be a lot of work to fish and operate your kayak at the same time, so it's best to find fishing spots near the shore. The current and wind are less severe there, and this will give you a more manageable workload when it comes to maneuvering the vessel. Anchoring your kayak can help a lot too. Just don't anchor if the current is too strong, or it could start to pull you under the water.

Purchasing the Right Kayak

The type of kayak you need depends on where you want to do the most of your fishing. Some kayaks are better suited for fresh water, while others are designed to work in salt water. If you're fly fishing or going after bigger fish, you'll need a more stable kayak. Bigger kayaks have more room for storage, but can be harder to transport. Comfortable seating is important for a long day of fishing.

Some kayaks come fully equipped for fishing ventures. Others will need to be customized. A comfortable backrest, rod holders, and features like coolers and storage go a long way towards turning a standard kayak into a great fishing machine.
