If you prefer an exercise-free experience or need to extend your range beyond your paddling or pedaling capability, several electric motor options are available. The first is the Hobie eVolve, a removable compact electric motor that slips into any Hobie Mirage kayak and is powered by a lightweight lithium-manganese battery with running time of more than 8 hours. Other options include Ocean Kayak’s Torque, which has an integrated motor, wiring, and battery compartment built into the kayak; and Old Town’s Predator XL, which includes a 45-pound-thrust saltwater-grade Minn Kota motor and foot operated rudder system. No rigging or special customization is required with either of these systems.
Typically, a medium-length pole will be appropriate for most beginners. Pick a rod that’s roughly as long as you are tall and that’s a comfortable weight for your casting arm. In terms of flexibility, you’ll probably want a fairly “loose” (that is, not rigid) rod to get started with. These rods are less likely to break line and–while not strong enough to fish for big game fish–are plenty strong for the average fish a beginner catches.
Thanks to Wali for his excerpt from the Idiot’s Guide. How? Poke large hole(s) in your perfectly good Kayak and set it in place with some stick-um and screws. Seriously though, it really is about that simple. A 2 1/4″ hole saw works real well to poke the hole and I like 3m 4200 as a sealant. Don’t drill the screw holes until you put the holder in place and rotate it to the position you want your rod to point in and it fits inside your hull (I shortened mine some). Be careful and don’t over tighten the screws […]
If you go fishing frequently, my advice is to get one pair which can withstand pressure. Otherwise, you may end up with buying another one. If you are an occasional fisherman who is going for a single trip, then you can choose a cheap fishing glove with acceptable durability.
The oldest known hooks were recently unearthed by archeologists in a Jerimalai cave in East Timor, Australia. Through radiocarbon dating of the surrounding soil, scientists have estimated that these relics are between 16,000 to 23,000 years old.
Crew Captains have access to educational materials (Go FishIN Crew Captain Manual, fish ID books, coloring books, posters, etc.) and fishing equipment (Shakespeare spincast rods/reels and tackle boxes containing bobbers, sinkers, hooks, and pliers).
Saturday’s forecast called for some light rain and scattered showers until around 8am. The scattered showers ended as forecasted but not before they kept some of the HOW attendees at home so we were left an over-abundance of HOW guides. This allowed me to get on the water and fish in the month long Mid-Atlantic Kayak Bass Fishing’s July online tournament. During last week’s scouting trip I was able to get a pair of small fish to submit to the online tracking system. The plan was to again use the floating Rapala to get some fish and then throw a spinner bait or a jig for some bigger fish. Mother nature had other ideas.

The grip is another important matter. The gloves should contain proper grip in the important areas like the tip of fingers, palm, and wrist. A good pair of gloves with gripping ability gives you the chance to deal with fishes even in underwater. Also, it will be easy to control your hook, bait, and rod.
If there are three or four players then it can happen that one of them finishes their cards and there are no cards left in the pile for him to draw. In that case he is out of the game and will simply have to wait while the remaining players finish the game.
Native Watercraft kayaks offer another option, a bicycle pedal drive system that turns a propeller. Pedaling with your legs from a reclining position, the mechanism resembles a recumbent bike and is designed to use powerful leg muscles. Steering with both systems is done with a hand-control lever that directs a rudder at the stern.
Learn to walk the dog. One of the most useful and effective lure techniques is called “walking the dog,” because it resembles the type of wrist motion you might have while taking Rover for a stroll. For this technique, you’ll use a surface lure with a weighted rear end.

You don’t need to spend extra money if you’re not going to using heavy-duty gloves for particular types of fishing. Consider what you’re willing to pay and find the best gloves in that range before you start looking. You’ll be surprised what you’ll find.
Andrew has resided in northern New Jersey most of his life and began fishing many of the freshwater lakes, ponds, and rivers in his mid-teens. Entering his 4th kayak angling season, Andrew has already logged more days on the water than most will in a decade. Primarily a freshwater kayak angler, Andrew targets Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass, Landlocked Salmon, and Pan Fish, although Northern Pike, Walleye and are his favorite catches.
