Now that you have picked out your kayak it’s time to make it a fishing kayak. Kayak shops can install two flush rod holders behind the seat and a detachable Scotty rod holder in the front between your legs. These are popular places to locate rod holders in a fishing kayak. A cleat should be installed behind your seat on the right side; in addition to a sea claw anchor with plenty of strong rope for wading or when you hook up with a fish. It is required by law to have a Coast Guard approved type 3 flotation life jacket (PFD) and a whistle aboard. A rudder is another important option that will help you control your kayak with a just slight movement of your legs against the foot pegs. Lastly, you should spend a little extra and purchase a lightweight graphite paddle. You will appreciate it in the long run.

Let the good times row; let them take you downstream. Let the good times row; let them give you a ride. Let the good times row in a kayak. It only makes sense with the price of gas, maintenance required on an outboard engine, storage concerns with a 20-foot long boat, and other cost related issues that more and more people are buying kayaks. Nevertheless, kayaks are not just for going out and paddling around. Anglers are finding kayaks as a great means of transportation and fishing machines on lakes, rivers, streams, and ponds.

Have you priced bass boats lately? It’s outrageous! No wonder bass anglers are turning to other activities to fill their weekends. They cannot afford the boat payments and gas that those big, shiny fiberglass bass boats guzzle. What’s the answer to getting an affordable boat that gets great gas mileage? A kayak! Okay, I know what you are thinking. Kayaks are those narrow, tippy canoe looking boats without a rudder or trolling motor. In the past, you would have been right, but not today. Today’s kayaks have become state-of-art, stable crafts that glide through the water powered by electric trolling motors and high-end electronics. In fact, anything you can find on that overpriced bass boat can be found on a kayak made today.
