What is the very best fishing kayak? Well, it depends. Kayaks come in many varieties and can have a number of differences - the fact of the matter is, what is best depends on individual preference and needs. You need to ask yourself some questions: Where, and how frequently, will I be fishing? How much am I going to spend? After buying it, will I even wish to look at the important things again after sitting in it and paddling for several hours? Let's go over some aspects of a fishing kayak:

When determining what size kayak to get, there are tradeoffs. Fishing kayaks generally range from 10 to 16 feet long and 26 to 34 inches wide. A shorter (12 feet or less) and wider (30 inches or more) kayak will turn easily, but will be much more difficult to paddle and maintain speed. A longer (more than 13 feet) and narrower (less than 30 inches) kayak will glide through the water faster with less effort, but will be harder to turn. They also don't handle in the wind as well.

While fishing, you occasionally might wish to stay where you are, rather than go with the current or wind. To do that, you will need an anchor. It is important when anchoring a kayak to always secure the anchor to the kayak at the very front or very back - if you attach the anchor line to the side, the current may cause the kayak to flip over. Unfortunately, it is very difficult, if not outright hazardous, to reach the very front or very back of a kayak from the cockpit. To fix this, fishing kayaks have a pulley system on the sides, consisting of either one pulley across the entire length of the kayak, or two separate ones for the front and the back. This allows you to tie the anchor line at the side of the kayak, where you can reach, and after that move the secured point to either the front or back of the hull.

Now, fishing off the back of a jet ski is obviously not perfect. I will tell you it is probably one of my favorite memories of fishing. We recently acquired a pair of jet skis about 3 years ago and they are a blast! One was a two seater and the other was a one seater. My buddy and I took these things all over the lake in Canada one summer.

One fun thing to do with them is taking them out on the lake when it is really choppy and windy because then you can go flying off, or get splashed with rather a bit of water. Well, when my dad was out on the lake with the boat, my buddy and I were dying to get out and go fishing in our "honey hole" (spot where we knew we would catch fish) so we could have ourselves a fish fry. We decided the only way to do this was to jump on the two seater water craft with our poles in hand and catch ourselves some dinner.

We were delighted! I threw it in the front compartment of the jet ski and we took it home to fry it up. It was such a fun and funny experience, trying to cast and keep our balance while the two of us sat on a little water craft but it was definitely a memory I will never forget.
