Paddling is such a diverse sport in that there are so many different ways to enjoy your time spent out on the water. Whether it’s coasting along a peaceful lake snapping photos, ploughing out from under a Class V rapid, or waiting for a bite on your fishing line - there’s no shortage of things to love about paddling. Fishing is actually one of the more popular uses that we find our customers using our K-Paks for! So that got us thinking - if you’re a frequent paddler, and maybe the occasional fisher, how do you get started in kayak fishing/angling?
One of the coolest things about fishing is there are many different types of fish to catch, and most all require their own individual tackle and technique if you are going to be successful at catching them. This is why I love my K-Pak folding Kayak. I can pull my boat out of the trunk of my car and be fishing a local farm pond in just a few minutes. If I have travel plans, I’ll just check the K-Pak (with a four piece paddle, my PFD, and tackle inside the backpack) on most any airplane trip. I’ve used my boat to fish in remote places from all over Alaska to Norway and many places in between.
Winter can be a grueling season. From power outages to road closures, the season can seem endless. For the beloved kayaker, frozen lakes usually mean packing up and heading south or searching for another way to spend your time. For the kayak fishermen though – it’s a whole different story! Welcome to the season of ice fishing.
