I receive a lot of questions online about a variety of topics related to kayak fishing, but far and away the most common is, “How do I make my kayak fishing videos better?” While “better” is a relative term and pretty vague, there are some basic tips and techniques I’ve figured out along the way that I think can benefit any kayak fishing videographer, from the amateur to the more experienced.

From those, our staff of anglers from around the country narrowed them to the Top 10 lineup.
"When it comes to launching or recovering the kayak in the dark, it seems like I go through two or three headlamps a year. I’m not easy on gear, plus I’m always looking for newer/better/brighter.
