Tips for saltwater kayak fishing

Taking too much tackle with you in a kayak is not an option. While there is usually room for all you need, make sure to bring only what you’ll use and save the room for that day’s catch. Light tackle is all you’ll need. Spinning outfits are used a lot. Using a spinner is easier while sitting in a kayak as opposed to a bait caster. The bait you’ll use is no different than what you would use in other watercraft. Use whatever bait appeals to the kind of fish you want to catch.

Before you head out on the water for a day of saltwater kayak fishing, pack along an emergency kit and some food and drink for that day. An emergency kit would include the normal first aid kit items like bandages, antiseptic, and the like. Keep a separate cooler for your food and drink. Make sure to wear clothing suitable for the weather where you will be fishing.

Don’t get caught in the cold breezes that come off water without a jacket and a slicker would be nice for those occasional outbursts of rain. Make sure you wear sunscreen and wear sunglasses to prevent a headache from the glare of the sun on water.

Check online for ready made emergency kits just for saltwater kayak fishing that include portable salt water desalinators for making drinking water out of saltwater.
