2) Stability: “A stable kayak for catfishing is important and maybe more so than for a lot of other types of fishing. With catfish, we’re often tangling with fish over 30 pounds.

These fish are wary to begin with. And in these confined settings you can kiss them goodbye if you run a jetboat over them or drag an aluminum jonboat across rocks.

Simply put, anything that doesn’t have a leash attached is susceptible to being knocked overboard and lost if your kayak flips.
