I wouldn't rule out a kayak because you mostly wade the river. At summer levels I use mine mostly as a means of transport from wading spot to wading spot. You can cover alot of water and just paddle the stretches you don't want to fish or know don't hold many fish. Sit on top kayaks are easy to get in and out of too.TaterToT said:Hmmm. Ken G got some good points. If I am in the river I most likely will wade. This is prolly mostly for outings and lakes and things. Still can't decide 100%
Good points, I have found sitting side saddle and casting a good way to mix it up and fish water slower or peg it in with the sand spike and wade.Ken G said:There's a good chance that no matter how good of a kayak/canoe fisherman you are, you're drifting past 90 percent of the fish you could be catching. A boat of any kind will be a nice way to go from one spot to another, but you still have to get out to fish a river effectively. In the mean time, you passed up a lot of good water.
