A kayak is the perfect mode of transportation for when you want to go fishing on a lake, pond, river, or even ocean. They’re more stable than canoes, often times faster, and you have plenty of room for any attachments you may want to add. While theoretically you could hop in any recreational kayak and go fishing, you probably wouldn’t have the most enjoyable experience. That’s where specially designed fishing kayaks come in.
