As the winter months draw near and the cold weather is the unfortunate result, many YAK Angler attempt to find things to do to keep us busy. For the rest of us that can't wait for the warmth of spring to get back out on the water I thought that I would share some cold water fishing tips with you.  Below is a video by Jim Sammons (who is quickly becoming the unofficial spokesperson for our sport), to explain a little more about cold water fishing.

 

 

 

Things to remember when going out in the cold water:

  • Carry all standard safety and first aid items
  • Always wear you PFD
  • Stick to water conditions that you know and feel comfortable with
    • Never go alone in cold conditions
    • Never paddle our further than you are used to going
  • Know how to get back into your kayak (see video below)
  • Wear layered clothing
    • never wear cotton
  • Wear a wading belt if you choose to wear breathable wadders
  • Wear a warm hat and gloves
  • Wear Neoprene booties
Most importantly just use your head and make smart decisions.
