Choosing a Fishing Kayak
The best fishing kayak is the one you make yourself and custom build it to fit your own needs and things you want. Be sure to be honest about what goals you want. Where will you be doing your fishing, on big lakes, fresh waters, slow moving rivers, or maybe from a dock? Maybe it is a combination of all these things. Will you be doing your fishing alone or taking the whole family with you?
All these things need to be taken into consideration before you choose a fishing kayak. As a basic rule longer and wider kayaks are faster and much more stable than short or narrow kayaks. A cockpit kayak is a normal kayak that you sit inside of with a larger cockpit opening. Since you are actually sitting down inside the kayak you are often more stable, but is also much more difficult to get out of.
There is also the sit on top kayak which allows for more accessories to be brought along and allows you to get in and out of the boat much easier if you want to wade. Some kayaker’s prefer the cockpit boats so they do not get wet. Color does not matter much in the choice of a Fishing Kayak’s as fish do not see many colors. Some people choose colors like bright yellow or orange for safety reasons while others buy colors like blue to match the waters. The main thing to consider when choosing your fishing kayak is that you like it and are comfortable in it.
