Kayak fishing is growing in popularity, although it is still just a small niche in the overall sport of fishing. Fishing from a kayak is a lot of fun for anglers that enjoy getting away from the crowds. Most kayak fishermen use their kayak to fish saltwater marshes, shallow bays and inlets. They are great navigating through shallow water areas that you wouldn’t be able to with a bigger boat.
Some of the popular fish that kayak saltwater anglers target are redfish, flounder, sea trout, black drum, striped bass and snook. There are plenty of kayak fishermen that use their kayaks for bass, northern pike, panfish and other freshwater fish.
