Fishing from Kayaks and Canoes New Topic Printer Friendly Version

I fish from this boat all the time. I got a yakclip to hold either my paddle to the cockpit when fishing or the pole when paddling.
I go light on tackle and carry everything in a back pack and small plastic tackle boxes. Less is more. Figure out what you actually need to enjoy your fishing.
I find having a rudder is very useful. It allows you to set up and drift fish using the wind and current to move you. I fish a lake that is about 3/4 of a mile long. I can work my way along a shore and quite often drift much of the the length without ever picking up my paddle to reposition.

I would never go out on my kayak without my pole. I also have a little Heritage Featherlite. The pole fits behind the seat without a pole holder needed. Good boat to take to the swamp be me.
I also use a Cobra Navigator sot. It is my warm weather boat. It is also the boat that requires the most user rigging to fish from seriously.
