QUICK GUIDE TO PADDLES FOR KAYAK FISHING

There are two main considerations when choosing a kayak fishing paddle. You always want a durable kayak paddle that is lightweight. Choosing a kayak paddle isn’t rocket science but you don’t want to get it wrong. You want to get value for your money in a kayak paddle that will last and reduce your fatigue. Here are some other points you will want to consider when you are looking at kayak paddles for kayak fishing.

KAYAK PADDLE BREAKDOWN

Most kayak paddles come in 1 or 2 pieces. The two piece model allow the paddle to be broken down for better storage. The ultimate in storage is the extendable kayak paddle.

KAYAK PADDLE BLADE DEGREE

The degree of the kayak paddle allows for both left and right-handed users to make the most of their preferred arm. Adjustable paddles give anglers more flexibility and control.

KAYAK PADDLE NOISE

It is hard to sneak up on fish if you are making loads of noise with your paddle. Splash guards are excellent for reducing the amount of noise you make while paddling.

KAYAK MATERIALS

Carbon fibre paddles are obviously the best but are also the most expensive. Aluminium paddles are a great middle ground offering strength and value for money.

The right paddle can make all the difference to having a great day and going home with a load of fresh fish or being tired from a long day of catching nothing. Always take a spare option and if you want some extra stealthy power, consider the revolutionary Watersnake electric trolling motor bracket for your kayak.
