Finding a Good Kayak
Finding a good kayak is a very important part of the kayak buying experience. You might wonder to yourself exactly what is a good fishing kayak while you are searching far and wide for the kayak that will make you happy while you are out on the ocean, pond, or river seeking out the next big fish you can reel in and take a selfie with before releasing back into the water. We’re not monsters here, we don’t need to eat these fish there is a supermarket right down the street that has plenty of food for sale so be a bro to the fish and just borrow them for a moment to take your photo and send them on their way. Fishing shouldn’t be a fight to the death it should be a struggle between two worthy adversaries and on this day you prevailed but maybe tomorrow the fish will. Batman doesn’t kill his enemies and neither should you.
Now once you’ve decided you need a fishing kayak you’ll have to figure out exactly what a good fishing kayak means to you. Is it a smaller, more easy to handle kayak or is it a kayak that can handle you thrashing around as you battle a rather aggressive and powerful fish? What is the issue we’re working with here in regards to you and the water, what’s your big sticking point?
Do you tip your kayak over a lot? If so you’ll want one that you can escape easy or maybe one that is more stable so you’re not constantly pitching yourself into the water. That gets kind of embarrassing after the fourth or fifth time you do it, so seriously maybe upgrade the kayak and stop getting yourself drenched.
You could find a way to build your own kayak. There are plenty of videos on-line that will show you exactly how you to that, from the selection of the wood you’ll use to the how to make the cuts needed and then how to get the whole thing to fit together nicely and then stick a varnish on it that’ll make it water proof and seaworthy. If a total do it yourself project is a bit too ambitious for you maybe you should go to a kayak making class where they’ll have a kit for you to assemble and the instructor for the class will go through the building process step by step to help you figure out exactly how you should put each piece of the kayak together until you finally have the project finished. Failing all that you can just go out and buy a fully made kayak for yourself. All sorts of sporting good chains and stores set up in water based tourist areas will be more than happy to sell you something to get you on your way to doing battle with the denizens of the deep, be they trout, bass, or various and sundry other sorts of fishes who need to be captured and photographed by you.
