5) Try not to hassle people for fishing spot info. Have a sense of adventure. Read fishing reports, look at Google Earth, scour old forum posts and investigate. You can learn a lot about patterns, good fishing holes, etc from just a wee bit of effort. As I stated before, kayak anglers are pretty self-reliant folks, and most of the good ones put in a lot of hours honing skill and finding good spots. Don’t expect them to just turn around and hand that info over to you if you’re not going to show any initiative. But do your homework and get after it and you’ll quickly be welcomed into a great community of giving people.
You might think current is a nightmare to fish in a kayak, but that’s actually far from the truth – provided you know how to use it to your advantage. Most kayaks are short and light enough to actually sit entirely in an eddy, preventing the boat from moving downstream, and giving you plenty of time to thoroughly fish the corresponding current seam. To maximize this, go past the spot you want to fish, then tuck into the eddy behind it, and fish until your heart’s content – without even having to paddle.
The Australian Military MKII and MKIII folding kayaks were extensively used during the 1941-1945 Pacific War for some 33 raids and missions on and around the South-East Asian islands. Documentation for this will be found in the National Archives of Australia official records, reference No. NAA K1214-123/1/06. They were deployed from disguised watercraft, submarines, Catalina aircraft, P.T. boats, motor launches and by parachute.
Just like the one handed cast, efficient kayak angling requires skill in handling a paddle with one hand. Paddling a kayak is simple with two hands, as the rhythm comes easily to even the least experienced of anglers. But what do you do when you’re fighting a fish with one hand, and you’ve got to steer your boat back upstream to get on the other side of a laydown or avoid an overhanging branch? Practice locking the shaft of your paddle along a forearm, which anchors it along your arm, and allows you to use it more like a canoe paddle.
While you should always exercise caution when engaging in any watersport or physical activity, kayaking can be a safe and fun experience as long as you practice it safely. Always pack your essential gear, understand the conditions of the weather and water and make every attempt to act as responsibly as possible. Remember — the safe kayaking is smart kayaking.
One of the great things about whitewater kayaking is making friends who share your passion. Running the rapids with a friend or a crew of adventure buddies is not only more fun; it’s safer. Whitewater kayaking is essentially risky, so you want to go in groups in case anyone is injured. However, the logistics of shuttling multiple boats to and from the put-in and the take-out point can be quite challenging and time consuming.
We purchased a Paddlesport Trailer from the Dock Doctors, and we're very happy. Not only is the trailer light, maneuverable, and versatile, the Dock Doctors' customer service is great! We had some trouble getting the trailer lights to work with our vehicle. We returned to the shop, and one of their staff stayed with us--after hours--until he resolved the problem. They are friendly, helpful and dedicated!
Transport your kayaks, canoes and other boats from point A to point B with help from the kayak trailers for sale at Academy.com. First, select a kayak trailer that offers ample space and a considerable weight capacity in order to accommodate several watercraft at once. Make sure your kayak trailer of choice is made from rugged materials, such as marine-grade galvanized steel, to ensure long-term strength, even when it's exposed to the elements. Need kayak trailers that can be adjusted to meet your unique needs? Look for a kayak trailer with versatile load bars that accommodate various accessories. For storage convenience, consider a kayak trailer that can be stored vertically, so it stays out of the way until kayaking season is back in full swing.
Dear Armand, thank you for your comments... we truly appreciate your feedback! These are all great comments to help us improve our product. We are sorry to hear your hitch pin was stolen off your trailer, please contact us and we can provide a replacement.

Enjoy your trailer and please contact us if there is anything you need.
"Ordered several items including a Feelfree Lure 11.5 with Overdrive Pedal Drive. After waiting over one month the order finally arrived but the Pedal Drive was missing. NO SMALL ISSUE SINCE THIS IS NEARLY HALF OF THE KAYAK COST. ( My 13.5 Feelfree Lure was $1000.00 less) . After holding with customer service for 6 minutes "Zack" cam on the line. I explained the my entire order arrived in excellent condition but the Pedal Drive was missing. After some discussion..."
While native people of the Arctic regions did not rely on kayaks for fishing, in recent years sport fishing from kayaks has become popular in both fresh and salt water, especially in warmer regions due to the ease of entry. Kayaks can be purchased inexpensively and have little maintenance cost. Kayaks can be stored in small spaces and launched quickly. Kayak wheels and trailers can be purchased to assist in the transportation of kayaks. Many kayak anglers have started customizing their kayaks for fishing.
When it’s windy, or when paddling up-current, it takes a lot of effort to make any headway, much less fish. In these situations, use the minimal draft of your kayak to your advantage. Instead of paddling right down the middle of the river or lake, get as shallow as you can. The current is much less in super skinny water, and wind and waves are also mitigated by shoreline vegetation and structures, you’ll paddle more efficiently, and you’re going to have much more energy once you get to your honey hole.

If you tip in calm waters, flip the kayak over by grabbing both sides of the cockpit and climb back in if you are able. If you are unable to do this, grab the kayak and swim back to shore or shallow water. If your kayak tips while you’re in a current, hold the kayak with just one arm. Continue to face upward to ensure you can breathe. Keep your body horizontal to the surface of the water and backstroke to the shore or shallower water.
Kayak trailers can be more money than a roof rack but can offer you more room storage space on top of your car. This is especially ideal for those looking to carry more kayaks or who don’t want to drill holes into the roof of their car. As with every purchase you make, it is important to consider cost. You do not want to step outside of your price limits as this change in budget can make you unhappy with this purchase.
Kayak trailers need to made of a lightweight yet durable material. This job usually goes to a specialized type of steel. Galvanized steel is not only light and strong but also rust resistant. This allows you to pull right up to the water, and even into it, to launch your kayak. Knowing that you can use your trailer the way you want will increase the amount of time you’ll use it.
You can strap virtually anything to a car given the right gear and thorough enough straps. The most efficient way would be to buy specialized kayak racks intended for strapping your kayak to your car. But you can strap your kayak (or two, but probably not more than two safely) with just the roof rack and cross bars. Without the cross bars, you’ll certainly lose security and driving at normal speeds with kayak(s) aboard will become a safety concern.

*Note that whitewater boats can only be used by people with prior whitewater kayaking lessons or experience. Generally we have you demo the boat in mellow water. If you are demoing in whitewater you must have a partner with you on the river and know how to roll. Usually you will need to have your own gear. If you don’t, let us know, and we’ll see what is available.
Paddling puts substantial force through the legs, alternately with each stroke. The knees should therefore not be hyperextended. Separately, if the kneecap is in contact with the boat, this will cause pain and may injure the knee. Insufficient foot space will cause painful cramping and inefficient paddling. The paddler should generally be in a comfortable position.
Breaking this down into the two most important sections it’s important to first question whether your mechanical skills are up to putting this together. After you make your purchase you will have a ton of large steel filled heavy boxes delivered to your door. You must really ask yourself: do you have space, time and understanding to put this together on your own? If not installed correctly this can end up costing you a lot of money and be incredibly dangerous for you when on the road.
The appeal of inflatable kayaks is their portability, their durability (they don't dent), ruggedness in white water (they bounce off rocks rather than break) and their easy storage. In addition, inflatable kayaks generally are stable, have a small turning radius and are easy to master, although some models take more effort to paddle and are slower than traditional kayaks.
Kayaks can also be classified by their design and the materials from which they are made. Each design has its specific advantage, including performance, manoeuvrability, stability and paddling style. Kayaks can be made of metal, fibreglass, wood, plastic, fabrics, and inflatable fabrics such as PVC or rubber, and more recently expensive but feather light carbon fiber. Each material also has its specific advantage, including strength, durability, portability, flexibility, resistance to ultraviolet and storage requirements. For example, wooden kayaks can be created from kits or built by hand. Stitch and glue, plywood kayaks can be lighter than any other material except skin-on frame. Inflatable kayaks, made from lightweight fabric, can be deflated and easily transported and stored, and are considered to be remarkably tough and durable compared to some hard-sided boats.
