Hi everyone i have never kayaked before and would like to learn. I think I should learn how to use a kayak before I fish with one. So any help would be great. I am a good swimmer but thats not the idea of a kayak.

Thank You
Stephen

Get out soon before the water cools down and you have to dress up. That way you can practice and it will be a little easier in wadders and a dry top. Start in a bay or lake tackle the open ocean/ beach later. Good luck.

Hi Steve,
Lakes at golf courses are loaded with fertilizer and pesticides I would try another spot. Good luck and hope to hear more.

Golf lakes have good fishing though.

I've got hundreds of days in a kayak but I don't consider myself a kayaker. I'm a kayak fisherman and if it weren't for the fishing I wouldn't own a kayak. Now I have lots of them. There really isn't much to it especially in still waters. Get a kayak that has a fishing pedigree and you really can't go wrong. There are a lot of great choices and more new ones each season. If in doubt get a used fishing kayak and figure out through use what's best for you. This isn't a complicated sport with a high skill level for most environments.
