As is my normal Sunday evening, I’m sitting here in front of my computer surfing the web looking for stories relating to kayak fishing for YakAngler.  I stumbled across this video of Jim Sammons talking about the importance of communications while out on the water kayak fishing and it made me realize that we haven’t done many articles discussing this topic or even profiling any of these products.   As Jim mentions in the video below, a great option is the Standard Horizon HX851 VHF Radio.

    • Yes they are! However, I'm a bit squeemish on parasites, so I usually just toss them back since they seem to grub up all the time.
