Kayak Fishing

The kayak world is exploding, by percentage kayaks are the fastest growing segment of boat registrations in Minnesota. I’m sure a lot of other states also. A lot of it’s due to fishing, many fisherman are finding out that kayaks are the cheapest and easiest way to fish out on the lake.

If I hadn’t got a good price on my small Pelican Bass Raider boat, I would of definitely bought a kayak that is for sure. The only thing I don’t like about kayaks are they aren’t stable enough for me and you can only fit one person on them, that’s not the case with my twin pontoon Pelican boat.


But, I’m not going to knock the kayak, it’s easy to transport, carry and setup. My Pelican boat can be kind of a pain to carry or move around.

Kayak’s newest niche is the kayak fishing boats. As you see in the pictures down below, these kayaks are rigged specifically for fishing. They come with live wells, rod holders, built in tackle boxes and built in pedal system to move you around the lake. The pedals move the two fins below, kind of like penguin flippers, they propel your forward.

I’m not sure how powerful the flippers are, but I’m sure they’ll get you from A to B in a decent amount of time. Myself, I bought a Minn Kota trolling motor that gets me around in my Pelican boat.

But the main thing is it’s affordable. Having a regular fishing boat is way too expensive for me and other anglers during this economic recession we are in. Think of all the stuff you have to buy to get you going on the lake. First the boat, second the motor, third the trailer, and fourth a ton of gas each year. That’s not to mention the price to register a boat and trailer in your state. Then there’s the cost of storing a big boat and trailer if you don’t have the room on your property. That’s why fishing with a kayak is so convenient. So take my word for it, go get yourself a kayak fishing boat.
