I think every fisherman will agree: our worst enemy in winter is cold, wet feet. Whether you’re casting from a bank or paddling across your favorite lake, the dreaded soggy socks can lead to a very uncomfortable day on the water.
With ICAST 2012 in the books, it’s time to look forward to the upcoming release of the vast array of new products! While waiting for ICAST to roll around, I made a list of booths I wanted to check out. One of those was the Okuma booth. That’s right - I said Okuma.
Okuma Fishing is releasing a new spinning reel this spring. The "Raw-II" utilizes their newest aluminum alloy - T480. High corrosion resistance, extreme strength, and light weight make this new alloy a dream. Okuma’s first Carbonite-greased dual drag system on a spinning reel and their already proven effective elliptical oscillation technology make this a reel a must-have for those that want to go kayak fishing after big fish without busting the bank or their gear.
There's no doubt that the Kayak Fishing scene is growing. Now Lowrance is engraining deeper into the sport with their newest offerings - the Elite-4 series of fish finders. Lowrance is marketting these new sonar and chartplotter units as "Perfect for Kayaks." Its time to take a closer look at these new units.
I you haven’t already, make sure you add a Kayak Fishing the Chesapeake Bay 2 to you kayak anglers Christmas list! Kayak Kevin’s newest DVD hit the stores this week and by the looks of the trailer, has all the tips and techniques to help you land your next citation fish. This DVD focuses on the warm water species in the lower Chesapeake Bay but is still full of a ton of hard core kayak fishing action.
Cruising through the forum last night on YakAngler.com I read through a topic titled “What length stake out pole”. There are some great post in there and some great products mentioned, a few that we have done articles on in the past.
