For many people, there may not be many experiences in life that create as many memories with family as going out kayaking and kayak fishing on the water. Michael Bailey and his family certainly agree. Last week, they journeyed out for a bay adventure in Bon Secour, Alabama in their Eddy-Gear kayaks.
Mitchell Fishing Products Brands Manager Matt Kitchen writes on http://www.mitchellfishing.com/Mitchell-education-kayak-fishing-tips.html, "A kayak gives you a lot more access to water that you traditionally don't have with a power boat," Kitchen said. "You really only need an open piece of land with access to the water to be able to get in." Mitchell goes on to outline benefits for fishing kayak style.
"Stealth is another strength. Paddling is quiet and being low to the water helps sneak-up on fish. A kayak draws very little water, too. These traits make a kayak perfect for stalking skittish fish, especially in shallow water." Kitchen prefers a sit-on-top (SOT) kayak for fishing in temperate climates. SOTs are more fishing friendly. Many are stable enough to stand on, which is better than being seated for sight-fishing and underhand casting tactics. SOTs are also easier to rig with fishing accessories compared to most sit-in kayaks."
