WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN A FISHING KAYAK by Andrew Austin
A FEW TIPS FOR FISHING SMALL, INLAND WATERS
Did you know that the oldest known fishing hook dates back to 40,000 BC? We’ve come a long way since then and today, fishing is more than a tool for survival – especially in Northeastern Ontario. If you’re planning a fishing trip, I’d like to tell you why you should give kayak fishing a try at least once.
It’s a hobby, a relaxing pastime, and can be a great adventure sport. Kayak fishing encourages a healthy lifestyle! It’s a chance to get close to Mother Nature and experience the great outdoors. Fishing is fun regardless of your gender and culture.
WHY KAYAK FISHING?
More and more people are tending towards traditional kayak fishing. If you’re a fisherman by profession, motorboats can save you time; but if you do it for fun and are going to fish in small inland waters like lakes, rivers, watercourses, inlets, and bays, you should really give kayak fishing a chance.
- Kayaks move quicker: With no sound of motor or paddles slicing through the water, you’ll easily find fish before they scare from noise
- Allow better access: Kayaks can take you anywhere you want to go for fishing. They allow easy access, whether it’s a narrow bay or a stream loaded with fish that boaters can’t reach
- Kayaks are economical: No gas! Almost no upkeep! No repair! No oil! No storage overhead! No boat registration! No insurance! It’s a one-time fee and maintenance fees are low. Another popular option is renting a kayak and practicing with it before committing to purchasing your own (scroll down for a list of operators).
- Convenient: If you own a hard shell kayak, hang it on your garage’s wall. If you have an inflatable kayak, just release the air and fold it into your trunk or vehicle to transport it anywhere.
- Calorie Burner: Kayak fishing is great exercise. Fishing = Fun + Fitness! What’s better than that?
