In our range of kayaks for fishing you will find everything from paddle powered through to pedal kayaks and those with electric motors.
Which kayak style is right for you?
Paddle kayaks: these are the traditional form of kayaks that have been around for thousands of years. Our paddle powered fishing kayaks come designed with fishing in mind and include accessories like rod holders and transducer mounts to adapt to today's modern fisherman. You will find types of sit on top kayaks in our range: from longer to shorter, wide and thin, we aim to provide the best kayaks for you.
Pedal kayaks: these kayaks have been made popular more recently and allow the user to power the kayak through the use of their leg muscles. Various varieties of pedal kayaks exist from propellor based through to flipper style kayaks. Pedal kayaks are particularly popular for fishermen as it allows them to navigate whilst hands free.
Motor kayaks: these kayaks have become popular in the last few years in part due to the advancement of electric motors. Electric motor kayaks are particularly popular with people who want to travel greater distances and those who have certain physical restraints.
Kayak specifications - choosing a kayak for your needs
Long kayaks: longer kayaks track better on the water and glide farther with each stroke compared to shorter boats
Short kayaks: are easier to store (think about storage space at home), are lighter and much easier to handle out of the water
Wide kayaks: the wider your kayak the more stable it will be. Stability is a key aspect for fishing kayaks, especially if you plan on anchoring down and fishing specific spots.
Narrow kayaks: handle much better than wider kayaks and are faster. Narrow kayaks tend to be more efficient because they bring the paddler closer to the centre-line of your kayak.
Max carry capacity: depending on the build of the kayak it will be able to handle different maximum weights. Longer and wider kayaks tend to carry the most amount of weight and this is important for those that want to bring lots of fishing gear.
The right accessories for your needs
Choosing the right kayak for your needs is the crucial first step to spending days on the water. But every kayak angler also knows having the right tools for the job makes life a little bit easier.
Some key accessories to consider for your fishing kayak:
Seating system: whether it’s a high seat or low seat, having the right seat for your kayak will make the experience that much better. No matter what, having a padded seat is essential to avoid the much dreaded ‘kayak butt’.
Rod holders: do exactly what they say. It’s an essential piece of kit for kayak anglers and there’s a large range of different styles available. All our fishing kayaks come with rod holders as standard. We also design our kayaks to be able to attach a large range of Railblaza products, including their range of rod holders.
Rudder and pedal system: on long kayaks a rudder is an incredibly important piece of kit. It helps maneuver your kayak and when paddling in windy conditions it helps keep your kayak straight. The rudder is controlled by the foot pedals in your cockpit.
Fish Finder: using a fish finder will help you have an edge when kayak fishing. It essentially allows you to see underwater and is helpful in finding great fishing spots. Many anglers use it to find structure which helps them target specific species - for example when bass fishing or target groupers. There’s a large range of fish finders available and to suit any fisherman's needs.
Lifeline: having a lifeline on your kayak is useful for some added safety. It allows you to hold onto the kayak in case you fall out and is useful for other things such as anchor positioning. All our new kayaks come with HV series lifelines that are designed in various colours to add brightness and visibility when needed.
Storage: having storage on your kayak is essential to kayak fishing because of the amount of gear you will be going out with. Storage compartments with tackle boxes are found in lots of our kayaks and having a large rear storage area with our HV bungees helps secure any gear down to your boat.
Life Jacket PFD: a life jacket is an essential piece of equipment that everyone should use each time they head out kayaking.
