Fishing from Kayaks and Canoes New Topic Printer Friendly Version

  the right kayak
  Posted by: old_user on Mar-19-13 9:58 AM (EST)
 

I am from the states, and if i called a kayak, a canoe, then I apoligize. From Pennsylvania to be exact. I have always enjoyed fishing, but I have so mant hobbies in the summer that I cant do them all. I tell my wife i really need to retire. But last year in New York on vacation, I took my little otter into a channel, and hit red eyes like you wouldnt believe.(rock bass, if your not from the states). I had a blast, and even caught a smalleye to go along with it. Now that otter was not even rigged to be a fishing kayak. I had no place to put my pole, and gear. I have many small streams around me that people do not fish because of the difficulty getting into them to fish. Some with some very large northerns.
Anyway, after spending this whole last weekend looking at videos on fishing kayaks, I believe i am going to go with the little 10 foot coosa. It was basically between that and the native watercraft slayer, and the Nucanoe Frontier. There are many, many good boats. Hard to really make a choice, but I believe this is what I am going to go with at this time. Any other imput will be greatly appreciated by all. Thanks to all who have helped me.
