With kayak fishing growing in popularity by the minute we thought it would be a great idea to ask our seasoned kayak anglers to provide some advice and tricks for the newbies. By far the most popular piece of advice was to wear Buy the best PFD you can afford and ALWAYS wear it Always check the weather forecast Keep everything tied down Learn how to self rescue Buy a sit-on-top kayak for easiest kayak fishing Test a bunch of kayaks before you buy one Tie down what you cant afford to lose Dont use your anchor in fast flowing rivers Look both ways before crossing an intracoastal Be anchored or tied off- big fish will pull you around!
Now that you've landed the fish you've been stalking all day long what are you going to do with 'em so they stay fresh until you can get home?
