Fishing Kayaks

Throughout Canada anglers are seeing the light by embracing kayak fishing in vastly increasing numbers. With the advent of pedal drives and electric motor consoles, fishing kayaks are becoming popular with paddlers and power-boaters alike. For some, the argument can be made that success with fishing is often best accomplished without the noise, pollution, and additional expense of a power boat. Not-to-mention, fishing kayaks also allow you access to places that restrict gas-powered boats (i.e. Provincial Parks & Conservation Areas).

In terms of design, fishing kayaks tend to be wide and stable with flat platforms that are perfect for fishing, hunting, bird watching or just recreational paddling. Their outfitting allows unlimited customization with innovative kayak fishing accessories available to provide anglers with their preferred rigging.

Fishing kayaks are normally made in rugged polyethylene and range in length from 12′ – 15′. Prices vary from manufacturer to manufacturer depending on model, length, outfitting, and whether it can accommodate a motor/pedal drive system. Economical fishing kayaks sell between $800 – $1200, while premium fishing kayaks retail between $1800 – $2300.
