What are some good fishing kayaks?
If you want to combine you passion for fishing with your love of kayaking, check out the options for fishing kayaks. A kayak for fishing is a distinct subcategory of kayak. This kayak has several features specifically for fishing, including the following:
- Rod holders: Most fishing kayaks provide a place to put your fishing rod so it stays out of your way while you are paddling.
- Cooler holders: If you want to have a cooler to store your drinks (or your catch of the day), look for a kayak for fishing that has a place to hold a cooler.
- Tackle box: Need a place for your fishing gear? Some fishing kayaks feature built-in tackle boxes.
In addition, fishing kayaks are designed so you can stand on them while casting.
Sit On Top kayaks also can be used as kayaks for fishing. For example, the Perception Pescador 10.0 Sit On Top Kayak is an affordable, accessible kayak for beginners and advanced paddlers, which can serve as a comfortable fishing kayak, although it lacks the fishing-specific features mentioned above.
