Kayak Fishing Articles

Here are some kayak fishing articles, written by Pack & Paddle staff, that have great tips to help you catch more fish!

Why Kayak Fishing Beats Boat Fishing

Kayaks are stealthy – No matter how you slice it, a kayak is quieter and less noticeable to fish than any boat – even poling skiffs!

Strategic Kayak Positioning

Yes – a fish can be almost anywhere, but your odds increase drastically if you focus on 3 key areas: Points, Pockets and Trenasses.

Gettin’ Stealthy

One of the great strengths of fishing from a kayak is that you can be astronomically more stealthy than you can be from a powerboat.

Skinny-water Stealth Fishing

Like some other species of fish, redfish are known for being easy to spook. The task of catching one becomes more difficult the shallower the water is.

Keep Your Tackle Basic For Kayaking

Because kayaks have the advantage of stealth, multiple trunks of tackle are simply not necessary to bring along on your kayak fishing adventures. For spring and summer saltwater fishing, I recommend bringing 3 rods.

Staying Warm Kayak Fishing

Early winter represents some of the best times to be out in your kayak fishing. Cooler water temperatures bring the speckled trout into range for our kayaks. The redfish are grouping up and patrolling the shores of the larger inshore lakes in large packs.

There’s a revolution going on in fishing kayaks and it’s all about standing up in the boat. This article will cover everything you need to know about the art of standing in a kayak.
