Kayak Fishing, The most fun you will have catching fish!

Kayak Fishing really is so much fun!
I have heard some really great stories of Kayak fishing in Alaska, being pulled down the river in the Alaskan forest by massive Salmon... but that is a different story for a different day.
Since salt water fishing is what I know, salt water Kayak fishing is what I will speak of.
First you need to decide what kind of fishing you would like to do.
Will you be throwing artificial lures, live bait or the becoming ever more popular fly fishing?
Depending on the kind of fishing you choose, Kayak choice is very important. For instance, with fly fishing you will want a kayak stable enough to stand up on. If you will be traveling long distance to catch your fish of choice, you will want to choose a faster kayak.
If you will be carrying a lot of gear, you will want to choose a kayak that can carry a lot of weight.
You could even consider a kayak from factory that is set up for fishing like an “angler package” but if you are interested in going that route, it is much cheaper to rig your own kayak, you'll need to spend sometime doing research and make sure you shop around to get the best deals.
No matter what you fancy, be prepared.
Never, ever ever apply sunscreen in your kayak, the fish will smell it and will steer clear.
Safety is of the utmost importance since it is so easy to get distracted with fishing and forget you are in a kayak.
Once you are heading to your spot, remember to creep in slowly to sneak up on the fish, you don't want to spook them before even having a chance.
Kayak fishing is one of the most enjoyable means of fishing, so no matter what kind of fishing you choose or what kind of kayak you choose, make sure you always have fun!
