Picking A First Kayak? Personalize Your Kayak To Your Needs!

If your new to kayaking and want to know some various types of kayaks or particular function of certain assets to various kayaks, than look no further. First timers always ask themselves first, “what type of kayak would be comfortable and fit both individual needs and affordable budgets?” There are many different types of kayaks, there are sit on top kayaks, as well as inflatable kayaks. If your looking for a great brand of inflatable sport kayak, then we recommend one great starter inflatable kayak the Sea Eagle SE-370. The Sea Eagle is a basic kayak with all the essentials and not so much of the modern pizazz of kayaks. Now if you are a more advanced, or even intermediate kayak-er, you may want to look further.

The Sea Eagle is very large and it is a kayak which includes 2 seats, 2 paddles and a  handy storage bag and a foot pump, in case of overflow. Now not all kayaks offer storage space, so you must ask yourself, will you be fishing? Camping or bringing gear? If so you need a storage place, now as far as the storage, “dry storage” is also a necessity to store “non wet” goods. Beginner kayaks often come with a repair kit just in case of the worst as well.

A lot of starter kayaks also include an I-beam construction and 2 skews on the bottom of the kayak, which gives way to better river and open water speed! Now if your a more experienced Kayaker, then we would possibly recommend a sit on top kayak, which is also loads of fun!

Recently a friend recommended the “Point 65N Modular Sit-on-Top Kayak” for a buddy of mine who was getting his second kayak and had just fallen in love with the pastime. The sit on top kayak, is beautiful if i do say so myself and is good for quality fishing. It has a very unique design which lets you convert the kayak into a solo boat within seconds, giving more support for fishing trips and other fishing or sport, related activities! It breaks down for easy storage and transport and even includes two seat backs of course! This kayak is nice too, because it also works great in both fresh water and salt water, as well as open water! So it’s great for basically everywhere, camping trips, fishing trips, maybe not white water rapids, but surely streams and rivers! I enjoy it myself and it’s a great, simple and fun kayak to take on the water. Whatever kayak you choose, check the specs. Is the kayak stand up or sit in? Is there storage? Dry storage? Can I go into dangerous rivers? Rapids? Can the kayak be used for fishing? Is the kayak good in open water? Once you find your fit and once you find the perfect kayak for your style enjoy the start of amazing adventures with your kayak side by side!

Good inflatable kayak for ocean and fresh water fishing?

I’m looking for a good inflatable kayak that I can use in both the ocean and lakes/rivers in semi-harsh conditions when needed. I’m 6’4 220 so it needs to be big and have storage for fishing and camping gear. Looking to spend around $500, but don’t hesitate to recommend something more expensive, I want to look at all my options. So far this is what I’ve found that looks pretty good to me and is probably what I will get unless someone can recommend something better, http://www.amazon.com/Advanced-Elements-Frame-Expedition-Inflatable/dp/B000O3AVNY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=sporting-goods&qid=1290104730&sr=1-1

Kayak bass fishing. What boat do I need?

I,m thinking about buying a used kayak for bass fishing on the river.I,ve recently started doing this and I have to say ,it,s addicting.I have a 16′ canoe that I,m using now and I will paddle it about 2 to 3 miles upstream and fish my way back.My success has been terrific catching a minimum of twenty bass both spotted and largemouth.I don,t mind the paddling because it is great exercise but it really cuts into my fishing time and I can only go so far to make it back in time.Is a kayak going to be much faster?I,m looking a a 15′ ocean kayak but I,m not sure if this is what I really need.I,m concerned with the size.Is it to big or should I look into something smaller.I need enough room to keep some fish alive in a cooler and have storage for tackle and extra clothes drink cooler etc.I would like to throw it in the back of my truck and carry it that way without buying a trailer.Any advice would be appreciated.
