Kayak Fishing Posted by: countykayaker on Jun-22-11 9:51 AM (EST)
One of the first things I would do is look over the Kayak Fishing section on this site there are a lot of good articles there to help you get started. An anchor is almost a must when you are trying to keep your yak positioned over an area where you are getting bites especially if the wind is blowing. I also would suggest you look into getting a clamp on fishing rod holder. If you are trolling with a sit in kayak and the pole is wedged behind you you will miss a lot of fish while you are trying to reach your pole. If you have a SOT that will not be as big of an issue for you. They also have insulated fish bags available to store your catch. The other question to consider is are you saltwater fishing or fresh water fishing that will make a difference in how you equip your vessel. Good luck out there!
