I'm going on my first kayak fishing/camping trip. Does anybody have any kayak rigging or supplies tips?

put everything in dry bags even if you have a dry hatch, water still finds a way to get in there when you dont want it to. Nothing worse than having a wet sleeping bag or tent.

Food- try and get packaged meals and or do them yourself. If it is something you are really planning on doing multiple times invest in a dehydrator and the book "Lipsmackin' Backpackin". It has instructions to make dehydrated meals that pack up nicely and can be sealed in ziplock bags. carrying a bunch of canned food is HEAVY and it takes up a lot of room.

Dry bags- If you carry anything "Gypsy Waggon Rigged" AKA strapped on top of the kayak make sure you have dry bags. For items inside the hull of my kayak i use the military issue weat weather bag.

Sleep- I would reccomend getting a hammock with bug screen. YAKSUSHI Mark did a review on one here on the website. You only have to find two trees, and dont have to worry about level ground or dry ground. If you want a traditional tent get a backpascking tent.. Dont get one that is one of those "GLAMPING" monstrosities. I sleep in a backpacking tent with my wife.

Security- I always take a way to secure my kayak to a tree or something.

Where are you going? I'm in alabama and I have been thinking of doing a kayak camping trip. I dont know what the laws are though. Are you just going down a river and stopping to camp where you please? Is that legal?

I will be going down the Sipsey River through Bankhead National Forest, so it is public land.

How did your trip go? I am real close to the Sipsey river, and this would be a great trip for me and the kids.
