Kayak Tracking and Safety

So you have your kayak all rigged and fishing gear packed for a big day out on the water. You’ve told your wife/husband/significant other your plans, where you are going and about what time you’ll be home. Your cell phone is all charged up. Sounds like you are all ready to head out! Well, maybe not. Depending on where you are going, you may want to consider some other gear…just in case the plans don’t work out the way you planned.

Anchoring A Precautionary Tale

Last Saturday was a balmy 44° and the rivers were running just below the 75th CFS percentile, so I decided that with the forecast full moon it would be a good day to head to a spot on the East Fork of the Stones I'd been meaning to explore.

YakAttack “VISICarbon Pro” update

No matter where you paddle, the “VISICarbon Pro” safety flag and light sets the standard for quality, construction, and overall utility in that product area. Recent changes have centered mainly around mounting systems and track compatibility, but a new improvement to the light diffuser cone makes the VISICarbon Pro even better at making you more visible in low light kayak fishing conditions.

It’s Lightline Time: Safety in the Night

There’s nothing like the feeling of creeping under the darkness of a bridge to see a group of stripers stacked like cordwood, picking your target, and hooking up. As temperatures drop around the Mid-Atlantic, stripers are gravitating to lighted structure, creating some of the best fishing of the year for kayak anglers.

Kids on the Water

If you were to ask most anglers what their favorite childhood memory was, I bet eight out of ten would tell you about fishing with a parent or grandparent. So how do you create these memories for your kids and give them a lifelong love of the sport? Here are a few tips to help make their time with you on the water experiences they will remember.

Getting Slammed

I found this report after what I am about to tell you. My Grand Slam day turned into an unnerving situation by getting slammed. That moment when I noticed the guys looking up at the sky, the wind jumped and hit us all in the face. And not a second later heavy rain started pelting everyone, except those of us under the bridge. About a dozen boats came rushing to get cover so I knew it caught them off guard too. There was also one other kayaker nearby who had been anchored up as well. About 5 minutes later, the rain died off and we both decided it was time to head back.

Conservation Can Be Hard

Ever since I was little I’ve always heard “It’s not always easy doing the right thing”, you probably did too. Standing up for what you believe is right can also be equally as hard. Debates can quickly turn heated and the true message you’re trying to get across gets lost. Talk about kayak fishing or fishing conservation on any angler forum and you’ll see what I mean. I recently had an encounter such as this on one of these forums.

Walking around ICAST a lot of products certainly caught my. As I walked past the VestPac booth I noticed a man wearing something interesting looking around his chest. I approached Paul, the guy wearing the device, and ask about the product. He walked me through his demonstration; and I had to admit that I could certainly see where this could come in handy.
