If you are new to kayaking and think that using kayaks for fishing might be something you could get interested in you should check out this video and then go and read some of our fishing kayak reviews.
If you’ve fished before probably haven’t used kayaks for fishing, it is a very different sport and you have to be a lot more safety conscious.
The video is about kayak fishing in Florida but the information about choosing the right fishing kayak could apply to pretty much anywhere in the USA. Obviously you will have to take into account climate, weather conditions and other factors when setting out. We’d advice taking some sort of kayaking class to be on the safe side.
Some of the things discussed are;
- How it’s an environmentally friendly hobby
- why a sit on top kayak is best for fishing
- Why the width of the Kayak is important
- Paddling techniques
- What to take with you on a fishing trip
- The costs of all the equipment you need for a fishing kayak set up.
The guy in the video is pretty experienced at his craft (spoiler alert) they don’t actually catch any decent sized fish!
But in all seriousness we here at kayak reviews thought the video was a good introduction to using kayaks for fishing and excuse the pun might wet your appetite to learn more! If you havent bought a fishing kayak yet be sure to check out our review of the best kayaks for fishing here.
