QUICK LESSONS FOR NEWBIE KAYAK ANGLERS
Anyone who has tried something new and built up some experience always wishes there were some things they knew first. Here are some lessons from those more experienced in kayak fishing you can benefit from if you are just getting started in kayak fishing.
THE RIGHT KAYAK
You don’t need a top of the line fishing kayak to get started. You also shouldn’t think that a cheap secondhand kayak is right either. You need to talk to people who are experienced with fishing kayaks to get advice.
LEAVE YOUR BEST FISHING GEAR AT HOME
It pays to leave your best fishing gear at home until you get more comfortable with kayak fishing. It is better to lose or break a cheaper fishing rod than losing your pride and joy.
KAYAK FISHING IS VERY DIFFERENT
Fishing from a kayak is very different to fishing from a boat. You need to be more reliable than ever. You will need more of your own essentials.
FISHING SPOT SECRECY
No one wants to give up their favourite hidden fishing spot. Hassling them for fishing spot information will not get your anywhere. The best thing is to go along kayak fishing with them.
A kayak mounted camera is the only way to get one of those prize photos. It is really hard to take a selfie on your own holding a fish and a camera at the same time. All those great shots you see are with a bow-mounted camera.
Invest in some fishing clothing and fishing apparel that will protect you against the harsh rays of the sun. Such fishing clothing is very effective and much easier than constantly applying sunscreen when you are out on a full day’s kayak fishing trip.
