The Affordable Kayak Has Changed The Game For Fisherman
If you haven’t noticed the huge increase in the number of fisherman getting around in kayaks at your local spot then your either blind or one of them! It is seriously a fishing revolution that has predominately been driven by affordability. Once upon a time accessing on-water fishing of lakes, dams, rivers and inshore reefs were the domain of boats only but the rise and rise of easily manufactured and affordable poly kayaks has made all these locations fair game.
Kayak fishing is now a dedicate hardcore sport with no species sacred – guys landing massive Marlin and Tuna on a kayak that is towed around for hours are amazing stories of strength and resilience. For stealth fishing for bass and tarpon on the flats there is nothing more amazing than sitting just above water level and your lure explodes next to the kayak as a big fish smashes it.
Other benefits include launching wherever you can get down to the water edge compared to a boat , accessing skinny shallow water and minimal maintenance issues with no engines/trailers.The rigs can be pimped out with everything from trolling motors,live bait wells, sounders and just about every other fixing you can get on a standard boat.
