Nova Scotia is a province in Eastern Canada, on the North Atlantic coast. It’s located at an equal distance from the equator and the North Pole… Together with the province of New Brunswick, it forms the region known as Atlantic Canada.
Both freshwater and offshore fisheries in this wind swept region are famous worldwide, but it doesn’t exactly fit in the image of kayak fishing as a sport or outdoors activity, which evolved in warmer regions, and so far gained few followers in Northern regions characterized by a colder climate.
But the Wavewalk kayak changes this picture, since it offers far better protection to the angler on board, and it can be easily motorized, even with a gas outboard motor, which is more suitable for moving water and for ocean kayak fishing than electric trolling motors are.
Anglers living in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick have probably never imagined they’d be considering fishing out of a kayak, and those who wish to take a W500 for a test ride can do so at Wavewalk kayaks’ dealership in Atlantic Canada, located in Eastern Passage, a town near Halifax.
Visitors to the recent Halifax International Boat Show could see there a W500 kayak rigged for fishing and outfitted with a 2.6 HP outboard motor from APS. This dealership offers other small outboard motors for sale as well as inflatable boats.
