Welcome to kayak fishing! If you fish from a kayak, you can access more places on the lake, creek, or river. You will also need some gear for kayak fishing, like a lifejacket, a waterproof flashlight, a first aid kit, rope, a dry bag, and a float plan. A float plan is when you tell someone where you are going to be fishing and what time you should be back.
Here are the differences between a recreational kayak and a fishing kayak. Fishing kayaks have spots for fishing poles to attach, but recreational kayaks do not. Fishing kayaks are more stable than recreational kayaks. Fishing kayaks have a lot more room for fishing gear, whereas recreational kayaks have little room. Fishing kayaks are also heavier than recreational kayaks.
Here are some good places to fish from a kayak in Kentucky: Elkhorn Creek in Frankfort, Lake Jericho in Henry County, General Butler State Park and Camp Kysoc in Carroll County. Here are some fish you can catch while fishing in a kayak: Bluegill, Crappie, Large Mouth Bass, Smallmouth Bass, Channel Catfish, Longear Sunfish, Rock Bass, and many more species! You can read more about kayak fishing on the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife website.
Thank you for reading my post, and I hope you find a good day to go fishing!
