The reality is that a standard PFD can feel bulky when you’re juggling a lot of fishing gear or trying to paddle to a honey spot, ultimately getting in the way of your comfort. Fortunately, there’s a lot of PFDs that address these issues by catering specifically to paddlers and kayak anglers.
There’s a lot of accessories available for kayaking and kayak fishing, but you’ve got two essentials to get out on the water: A PFD and a paddle. Knowing this, we want to draw attention to a very handy section of our site: The Kayak Packages Page!
The number one cause of drowning is medical emergencies, and a proper fitting PFD could be the difference in making it home alive or not making it home at all. For that reason, I decided to write a blog about how much I enjoy my PFD of choice, the NRS Chinook.
Interested in trying your hand at kayak fishing? Awesome!
Awwwww yeah! You got your kayak all rigged up for a great day of fishing, have all your rods and lures packed and ready to go, but wait – what about your PFD?
I chatted with Barrett Fine, ACK’s Regional Operations Manager about ways anglers can improve their kayak fishing experience. Always a wealth of information, Barrett had the wise comment that increasing comfort while on the water is the best bet for improving your next kayak fishing trip.
Keep these Life Jacket Facts in Mind Whatever kind of paddling you like to do, it’s important to always wear your life jacket (or PFD) while you’re out on the water. Think of it like wearing a seat belt in your car – you probably won’t find yourself in a situation where you need it, but it’s a precaution that can be live saving should the worst happen.
Paddling in Cold Weather It may not feel like it everywhere now, but September marks the end of summer and, eventually, the coming of cooler fall weather. This time last year, our team was talking about kayak storage options to help people get ready for the cold winter months.
Several people have asked me about my gear and why I chose what I did. Being a convert from whitewater boating, I started completely new with kayak fishing, so pretty much all of my gear other than my rods and tackle are brand new (I have fished in a bass boat for many years).
