Choosing the Right Kayak 

When it comes to kayak fishing, the right kayak can make all the difference. At Western Canoe Kayak, we have a variety of fishing kayaks to choose from, so you’re sure to find one that meets your needs. Consider factors like size, stability, and speed when selecting your kayak. If you’re fishing in open water, a longer, narrower kayak is best for increased speed and maneuverability. A shorter, wider kayak for fishing in tight spaces will provide more stability and maneuverability. 

Packing the Right Tackle 

Having the right tackle is key for a successful kayak fishing trip. At Western Canoe Kayak, we carry a wide selection of fishing tackle, including rods, reels, lures, and more. Pack a variety of lures and bait options to give yourself the best chance of catching a variety of fish. If you’re fishing from a kayak, you also want to ensure you have the right tackle boxes and storage solutions to keep everything organized and accessible. 

Safety Gear 

Safety should always be your top priority when kayak fishing. At Western Canoe Kayak, we carry a plethora of life jackets, throw bags, and other essential safety gear. Make sure you have the right gear for your fishing conditions and always wear a life jacket when you’re out on the water.
