This blog is mainly about kayak fishing in the Northern, colder regions of North America, and by extension kayak fishing in any region where the climate is cold.
Fishing from a kayak in cold water and weather is completely different from kayak fishing in warm water and weather. This is why kayak anglers are a rarity in the cold regions, which are Canada, Alaska, and the Northeastern, Midwestern and Northwestern regions of the United States.
Although fishing is very popular in the cold regions, kayak fishing isn’t at all, and for a good reason – No angler is their right mind would risk capsizing their boat, or even getting wet in cold water and weather, and that’s basically what common sit-in and SOT fishing kayaks have to offer. This is because northern anglers are aware of the risks involved in exposure to cold.
W fishing kayaks are different from other fishing kayaks in both aspects, as they provide anglers with good stability and adequate protection from the elements, but these new kayaks are still unknown by most anglers, and not widely distributed.
