Kayak Fishing

ince started back in 1998 a lot of progress has been made in the designs, equipment and accessories available for kayak fishermen. These improvements have prompted many surfcasters to make the "leap" close off shore in kayaks specifically designed for fishing.

The photo above is a good representation of the opportunity that, in most circumstances, only a kayak fisherman can enjoy. One of those 21 foot center console fishing boats with a 150hp engine would put the fish down almost immediately. A kayak fisherman can stay close and fish the blitz within yards of the action.

We offer here five articles that will help anyone comtemplating this unique part of recreational fishing to make the right decision. Please read them carefully before spending your dollars and oh yes, don't forget that a personal Flotation Device (PFD) is your most important piece of equipment!
