Since others are posting articles... here is one I found interesting, since I have a pal who has outfitted his kayak with electronics and stuff just for fishing...

That is pretty interesting stuff. Good find Dude.

I have never used kayaks before. I use a canoe, and sometimes a scanoe, to get into seldom fished areas...but the kayak is not one I have tried.

What is the difference in using a kayak in terms of fishability? I mean, in the canoe I can paddle, or use an electric motor. In the scanoe I can even use a small (say up to 5 horse) motor.

Webdude, how does your friend have his kayak outfitted? What kind of gear does he use to make it more of a fishing vessel? Could you possibly have him send a picture of it equipped for fishing for the forum users to see?

I think there might even be an article there..

"EQUIPPING A KAYAK FOR FISHING UNFISHED WATERS"... or something to that effect. I for one would really enjoy reading something along those lines. The kayak and canoe obviously give you the portability to fish most anywhere out of the back of your pickup... or to go on to places that few other fisherfolks, or boats, go. That is a very important thing sometimes... the lack of fishing pressure!

The guy is my brother in law. He lives in Florida... I'll see if I can get a picture from him.

I've never even paddled a kayak, but it sounds like a good way to fish.

Fisher, some of the the kayaks down here are designed just for fishing. They have built-in rod holders, some limited storage, etc. (Never seen one w/a motor though, its all paddle power.) It looks pretty neat. I've never fished from one, but have read about guys going shark fishing and just letting the shark tow them around to tire it out. There are also some places along the coast, much like some lakes in MN, that are no-motor zones, and there are places in the Keys where it is way too shallow to take anything w/a motor, so kayak is the way to go.

If you want something a little more daring, though, a couple years ago one of the fishing shows came up with the idea to fish an offshore sailfish tournament from inner tubes. The point was to show that you don't need multi-million dollar war wagons and six figures in electronic equiment to catch fish. Thus was born the Miami Raft Invitational Tournament, which will go on for the 4th time in March. The captains design their tubes with PVC rod holders, they tie bait cages to the sides, they set up chairs in the middle of the tube, and they have at it. A support boat follows each tube in case there are problems, but all the fishing is done from the tubes. Check out this link (mods please hotlink) and specifically the picture of the guy fighting a sailfish from his tube. Pretty crazy. (By the way there is no limit to the number of rods/reels, etc. you can use in salt water in Fla.)
