Are you thinking about starting kayak fishing? Trust me, you will be hooked immediately! Kayaks are so much fun to fish from and open doors to new adventures. There’s no getting out! It’s spring, start now with a new hobby and enjoy some time in the great outdoors.

Starting Kayak Fishing

To convince you, I will give you 5 reasons why you should start kayaking fishing now:
– The easy portability and launchability of a kayak is a huge advantage over a motorboat. You don’t need a boat ramp.
– A kayak is easy to transport to and from the water.
– A kayak is perfect if you have limited storage space.
– Being low to the water puts you closer to the action.
– Kayaking is a great fitness exercise.

A kayak is a fishing platform with many advantages. If you don’t have the money, start with the cheap but high quality Bite Angler or check out my blog with 10 Tips for Starting Kayak Fishing on a Budget. (https://www.jacksonadventures.com/2020/02/10-tips-for-starting-kayak-fishing-on-a-budget/).

If you have no friends who start kayak fishing with you at the same time, you will quickly get to know like-minded people. Just visit your first kayak fishing tournament or event. The community of kayak anglers is large and supports every beginner who starts kayak fishing. You will get the best tips at an event if you drink a cold beer with kayak fishing junkies at the barbecue. And throughout the year there are really a lot of events all over the world!

But beware: once a kayak angler, always a kayak angler! Kayak Fishing is a lifelong hobby. You can easily start when you’re young and can continue doing so into old age. My daughter started at 8 years old and my dad doesn’t think of quitting at 77.
