5 Tips For The New Kayak Fisherman

We all have done it: started a project or hobby, only to realize that we forgot to look into or learn about one or more aspects about it. This still applies for our wonderful addiction of kayak fishing. When I first got the idea of fishing from a kayak, I immediately started to look at boats and read online reviews . I learned about the differences between kayaks, and what those differences mean to efficiency and comfort.

For 2013 Jackson Kayaks is introducing a new recreational / touring sit-on-top (SOT) kayak that they are calling the “Cruise”. At first glance, you might mistake the Cruise for the Jackson “Cuda 12”. While the overall hull design is very similar, there are several differences.

Sea Island Sport - Chesapeake Light Craft

My stepfather recently returned home from a trip to Baltimore bringing the Chesapeake Light Craft catalog home for me.  Now I have to admit that when I first saw this catalog I thought that the concept of building my own boat was very cool but that it probably wouldn’t work out for me since most of these kayaks are Sit-in-Kayaks (SinKS) made more for touring than for fishing.  That was before I turned the page and came across the Sea Island Sport!   This is a do-it-yourself Sit-on-Top kayak that we YakAnglers can utilize while kayak fishing.
