Hi fellow AMFisHers! This weeks AMFisH(LEARN more here: www.amfish.ca) fishing vlog is about the benefits of fishing in a kayak.
I have mainly fished from shore and in boats my entire life and a few years ago I decided to purchase a fishing kayak to tackle fishing in a completely different way than I had ever done before.
What I can tell you in my eyes opened up to the surplus of water I could get into and fish that I could never do before from shore or in a boat. In this video you will see I have paddled into a small cover that is about 8 to 10 inches deep, with a lot of great spots to find a bass sunning itself. When you see me paddle back out into the deeper water, you will understand that trying to get in this area from shore or in a boat is next to impossible. Does it make fishing this area from a boat totally impossible, no it does not BUT it makes it much more complicated as I can sit out in the deeper water and cast into the cove, but not being able to see clearly as to what I am casting to will only result in spooking any fish in the cove.
The advantages of fishing from a kayak are quite high to any angler, I mean look at things like being able to drop in almost anywhere on a lake, zero gas expense to operate the kayak, accessing water on the lakes you fish, where fish may not have even seen a bait before, these things alone are enough to have me signing up for kayak fishing!
I have accessed some very remote areas on lakes I fish that I could never find a way to access before, this is where my eyes opened up to an entirely new world of fishing. Being able to paddle into a spot that is merely inches deep is quite amazing if you ask me and catching fish you have never caught in those remote areas is even more amazing! Fishing from a kayak has allowed me to add several new spots to my fishing spot list on the waters I fish that I had always struggled to find a way to fish in the past.
I would recommend doing your homework on what kayak will suit your needs best, as there are a lot to choose from with various pros and cons to each. There will be a link in the video screen that will take you to a previous kayak video I shot, that goes over key items you should consider while looking at fishing kayaks and I suggest you give that a watch to help you along.
Kayak fishing is quite an inexpensive way to keep yourself on the water, which explains why it has been picking up a lot more popularity over the last couple of years! If you are looking for a challenging new way to fish or are just looking for a better option to shore fishing, consider getting yourself into a fishing kayak that will allow you to fish more efficiently and be more affective on your outings.
Hope you found this video helpful and feel free to contact me should you have any questions about kayak fishing or to review your kayak fishing needs further.
