WHAT TYPE OF KAYAK IS BEST FOR FISHING?
The first thing is to make sure you look for a fishing specific kayak. What is the difference between a normal kayak and a fishing kayak? The main difference is they are usually a little wider to allow the angler to stand up when casting or reeling in a fish, and also the amount of mounts and fixtures they have to accommodate fishing gear, such as rod holders or anchor points.
Hardshell or inflatable?
The hardshell kayak can take a few big knocks such as hitting rocks on the bottom of the lake in shallow waters, but the inflatable kayak opens up a world of exploration as you don’t need to strap it to the roof of your vehicle! You can pack it down to fit in the boot of your car, you can store it in a cupboard if you live in an apartment in a city, you can take it on a plane and check it as luggage, you can take it with you on road trips for those just-in-case fishing moments.
