fish in?

I know it seems like everyone is fishing from a kayak now, and that must mean they are the "best" thing to fish from, but that depends on your waters. For instance, when I fish out in the Gulf, for sharks, mackerel, redfish, etc, I do fish from a kayak, an Ocean Kayak Frenzy. It's not exactly a fishing kayak per se, but it does far better coming in and out of the surf than many other kayaks that are dedicated fishing yaks.

However, when I fish the bay, I almost always fish from my canoe. Depending on my whim, I still often use a kayak paddle, but in the canoe. Fishing from a canoe gives you more room for gear, more room to fight fish, and more comfort than a kayak. If you are fishing ponds, lakes, and rivers, or protected inlets and coves of a bay, I would suggest canoe over kayak. Fishing in a bigger, rougher body of water, to out in the ocean, go kayak.
