This weeks AMFisH fishing vlog – Items to consider when buying a fishing kayak – fishing.

Hi AMFisHers! This AMFisH(LEARN more: www.amfish.ca) fishing vlog is about key items to consider when getting a kayak for fishing:

The #1 thing to consider should actually be where you live, WHY well I will use myself as an example, I have a sit in kayak because I live in a climate that does get much cooler in the fall and in order for me to fish as long as I want during the season I need to be up out of the water to stay dry.

A sit on top kayak would only work for me a few months out of our fishing season, as you are sitting on top with water access all around you, so staying dry and warmer would definitely be impacted in this style kayak.

This is definitely the key decision maker for getting into kayak fishing, as it can make or break the amount of time you spend on the water. Other key items are storage as it is a much smaller area to fish in outside of a boat. Versatility meaning how does the kayak perform while fishing, is it easy to access all the compartments for your needs, storage, transporting it to the lake, accessories for fishing, all key items to consider when looking at kayaks for fishing.

In the end make sure the kayak you purchase is the right kayak for your fishing needs, that way you will be happy for a long time!

Hope you found the vlog helpful!

This weeks AMFisH fishing vlog, spring & early season fishing tips – fishing

Hi AMFisHers!   This weeks AMFisH fishing vlog is about spring & early season fishing tips:

Are you not catching enough fish in the early months?   Well there are a few things to keep in mind in the earlier fishing season and bait size is at the top of the list!   Once we come out of the winter months and cooler temps we get excited about fishing, which is great BUT we also need to focus and analyze the baitfish, specifically their size.

Spring is all about rejuvenation and growth, so the key is to realize that baitfish are their smallest in the early months.  From here what you need to do to produce more fish is make sure to match your bait size to the bait in the water.  This means observing the baitfish at the start of the season, looking at how they move, estimating their size this means length and width and from here you can look at the baits you have and match accordingly.

By doing this you can drastically increase your fish catch ratio by as much as 50% or more!  Fish have feeding habits that are driven by various tools they use, smell, touch with their mouths, linear line senses and their eyes, so we need to trick them into having a reason to go after our bait.   If they are used to gorging on a specific food source, lets say minnows of a 2 1/2 inch size in the early months, then we as AMFisHers need to throw a similar size bait at the fish.

If our bait is close in size, moves like the bait in the water and the overall bait profile is pretty close, our bait then automatically blends in with the real bait making it a good choice for the fish.   As the season progresses you will continue to do the same thing by matching bait size to what you see in the water, BUT this also applies to bait you see outside the water.  Do this same examination of frogs, small birds, rats, mice, snakes, turtles, any food source we know fish go after and match those sizes to what you see.

If you are mainly seeing smaller brown frogs, then you pull out your smaller 2 inch version of a brown frog and use that.  I can’t tell you how well doing this works, as it is the best way for us to confuse our bait in with what the fish are seeing all the time, no greater way to catch more fish!
