A Successful Last Minute Decision - by Anthony Reid

Anthony Reid - Nanaimo, BC Canada

This past weekend was a short, successful kayak fishing trip. I had decided late Friday evening after my previous plans had fallen through, that I was going to try my luck at fishing the mouth of the Little Qualicum river. I’ve heard nothing but great news over the past few weeks of how great the coho and spring fishing was going around that area so I thought I’d better give it a shot and am I ever glad I did!

My friend Matt had decided to join me (again, last minute) and we made plans to be on the water for 9:00am as slack tide was 10:00am. We didn’t even know where we were going but found a beautiful launch site half a kilometer from the mouth. When we got there, the tide was out so we had to drag our yaks over what seemed to be 18 city blocks of beach. We had finally reached the water and it was now 10:15am and the end of slack tide. There were a ton of boats, float tubes and fly fishermen peppered everywhere. We hadn’t even been there an hour and I could her a couple boaters talking about another spot (not kayak do-able in a days paddling) where double headers were abundant. It wasn’t long after, nearly every power boat had reeled in and left this ‘so called’ hot spot we were currently paddling in. I had started asking the handful of remaining diehards how their luck was and not one person had a good thing to say. I put a 4oz. banana weight, no flasher and a 5 inch green, white and black Coyote spoon on. Matt and I then decided that we would troll north past the mouth then back too our launch site. Lets just say, what happened next was NOT what I was expecting.

Literally after about 100 paddle strokes of our decision, my rod went nuts. I thought it was another rock fish but when my line started to travel horizontally, I knew I had something worth getting excited about. I yelled back to Matt that I had something on, he reeled up and paddled close to see the commotion. It was about a 10 min. fight until i saw silver shine coming from the end of my line. I grabbed my net that I thought was large enough to bring a fish this size but i was wrong, man, was I wrong. 

I took about 5 attempts trying to manipulate him into the net but it just wasn’t working. Meanwhile, I’m yelling and using words for adult ears only thinking he was going to spit the hook at any moment. Angrily I took one more shot and then the worst happened. He dove underneath my kayak opposite to the side I was playing him and well, dragged me in with him. (No lies). The combination of my weight being on the one side, the fish going to the other and the fact that I simply got caught in the moment lead to this. My kayak stayed expensive side up but I was now in the water, holding onto the side of the boat with one hand the rod with the other. Matt paddled over to me and took the rod so I could climb back in. I’m now in my kayak but my paddle is about 30 ft away (I'll be sure to use my Scotty Paddle Leash next time) and my friend is playing my fish so I’m not asking him to help. I used my net to propel myself over to my paddle and start over again. Once I reached Matt, he handed me the rod back and grabbed his net to seal the deal. If he didn’t smell so bad I could have kissed him (you too Matt.) The fish ended up being a 15lb. chinook salmon. I was soaked through to my birthday suit, angry, happy and ecstatic all at the same time. It’s now 12:30 pm and it’s time to go home…
The best last minute decision I’ve ever made.

Since moving to Vancouver Island at the of age 5, I picked up my first fishing rod and the sport quickly became my favorite hobby, my passion and one might even go as far as calling it a priority. At the age of 10, my family was fortunate enough to move to, and care-take, a remote lodge in the Broughton Island group where I bought my first boat with the money I had earned from cleaning the visitors’ catches. This is where I really became familiar with fishing techniques for a wide variety of salt water species.
Upon moving back to ‘reality’ a few years later I took to fresh water fishing as I no longer had unlimited access to the ocean. Since then, I have fished every corner of the island for a wide variety of species whether it be salt or fresh, boat or on foot. I first tried kayak fishing a few years back in a SOT [sit on top] kayak I borrowed from a friend and it’s safe to say I was completely sold on the concept.
It was shortly after that I had bought my own kayak, I sold my aluminum boat and have never looked back. I love the fact that I can launch my kayak literally anywhere, either fresh or salt with little to no effort. Deep pockets are not required and it’s great exercise. The saying “the fish was so big it pulled my boat around” is no longer a tall tale.

The Draw of Kayak Fishing - by Mike Zilkowsky

In the past few years, chances are that you have seen more than a few anglers fishing out of kayaks. With a closer view, you will see that these anglers are rigged up and ready to give any fish a run for its money.

Over the past few years, kayak fishing has become the fastest growing area of the fishing industry. More manufacturers are jumping on board and we are starting to see kayaks that are built as pure fishing machines. Let me explain why this has become such a popular way to fish:

An angler can get a fishing kayak, paddle and PFD for around $500 on the bottom end. Average prices for a fishing kayak, good paddle and good PFD will be closer to $1500 with the top end being closer to $3000. While the high end kayaks are out of reach for a lot of anglers; an investment of $1500 will get you into a great fishing kayak, a lightweight paddle and a PFD designed for kayak fishing.

Fishing kayaks come in two flavors, the traditional sit-in kayak and the sit-on-top kayak. Both have advantages and disadvantages. More and more though, anglers are favoring the sit-on-
top kayak for the limitless possibilities of rigging options and stability. They say “necessity is the mother of invention” and let me tell you, invention has favored the fishing kayak! Newer hull designs provide more stability than ever before and continuing advancements in seat designs allow anglers to comfortably be on the water for 10-12+ hours. Fishing kayaks are making waves in mainstream fishing scenes and streams.

No longer do anglers have to drive around looking for a boat launch. They simply unload their kayak from their vehicle, throw their gear in and head out fishing. With the new plastics being used for the hulls and integrated skid plates on the stern, these kayaks can be dragged through the bush or across the ground to the launch. Add on a kayak cart and you have an easy method to transport your kayak across that crowded, paved, parking lot and avoid the wait at the launch. For me, the cost was a huge incentive. For less than $2000; I had a fishing machine that required no trailer, no insurance and no costly fuel to power it. I could fish any body of water that I could walk to and I wasn’t wishing that those remote lakes had a boat launch. One of the biggest advantages of kayak fishing is the ability to load your kayak onto any vehicle and head out. Whether you are loading up kayaks on your truck, a minivan or small car; you can fish from a kayak without having to upgrade your current vehicle.

Innovations in kayak paddles have pushed the boundaries and allowed for the creation of super lightweight paddles made from incredibly durable materials. No longer are anglers paddling around with an aluminum paddle. Today’s paddles are made from carbon fiber and fiberglass. With options like ergonomic bent shafts, lure retrieval hooks and integrated measuring devices; kayak paddles have advanced beyond expectations. No longer are the days of just grabbing a paddle and heading out. Now you can have your paddle matched for the type of paddler you are and what you want to use it for. These paddles now weigh 25-32 oz and range in size from 185 cm to 250 cm. Trust me when I say that the change has been great. My first paddle was a basic aluminum paddle with plastic blades. I’m now on the kayak with an adjustable length carbon fiber paddle that has an ergo shaft and foam core. I can barely tell that I have anything in my hands while I am out on the water fishing.

Gratefully gone are the days of a life jacket that is one size fits all. With numerous personal flotation device manufacturers out there, the PFD is now selected based on comfort, size, gender and intended use. Companies are now constantly listening to their pro-staff and consumers for creative input. PFDs of today are designed to replace the old bulky, bright orange lifejackets with sleek, well designed, comfortable jackets that anglers will actually wear for the entire day on the water. Kayak fishing specific PFDs now come with mesh lower backs for comfort, multiple pockets for gear and new foam technology to reduce the bulk. Add in the fact that most now have 7-9 adjustment buckles and multiple gear pockets and it is easy to see why anglers are comfortable wearing these all day on the

I could get into the specific gear used by kayak anglers for outfit their kayaks, but it varies based on personal preference and different species the angler is pursuing. One thing for certain is that kayak manufacturers are constantly striving to improve their designs and incorporate built in rod holders, sonar and transducer mounts and integrated tackle storage.

We are now seeing that more and more stores in Canada and the US are seeing the benefit of stocking fishing kayaks and making it easier for anglers to access the gear. With more anglers realizing that they can fish waters that were inaccessible before and get a little exercise, there is a constant increase in the popularity of the sport. I, for one, am very happy to see that.

Here in Alberta, we now have 2 kayak fishing events each year. The first, the Eastslope Kayak Fishing Classic, is held in June and is open to any angler in a solo manpowered craft. Over the past 4 years, this tournament has continued to grow and is now attracting attention from anglers outside Alberta and large fishing gear manufacturers who are donating great gear for the anglers to win. The second, more of a fun get-together than a tournament, is held in September as a last hoorah for bragging rights until next year.

If having the ability to fish any body of water, anywhere, anytime sounds like something you might be interested in, stop by your local kayak store and check out the newest fishing kayaks.

Hopefully, we will see you out paddling on the water.

TIPS FROM THE PROS - Kayak Fishing Adventures

Kayak Fishing Adventures
By Chistopher Arnold

Scotty Pro-Staff Kayak Angler

What a winter! It seemed that spring would elude us weeks following March 21st  2014, but plans had been made. The date was set and we were not about to let Mother Nature stand in our way. Six kayak anglers all with different levels of experience on a mission to start the 2014 fishing season off with an adventure. 
South Western NS on the Meteghan & Annis River systems

On Friday, April 11th we made our way to our fishing camp in a rural area of Nova Scotia. According to a local, the ice had just retreated the week before. The water level was exceptionally high and fast flowing through the narrows. The water system we fish is made up of several lakes connected by a river that eventually makes its way to sea. So, we unload the gear, set up camp and it isn’t long before we’re fishing from shore near the camp. Fly and spinning gear are the weapons of choice. The three fly tiers of the group are eager to throw their latest creations from the vice while us other three are like kids on Christmas morn wanting to play with our new toys, in this case, new flies the boys have tied for us. Not having much luck from shore, we load the kayaks with all the necessities and launch from the shore line right below the camp. With wind and rain out of the west, we paddled out across the lake to find the calm waters protected by the trees and high ground. It isn’t long before the first fish is hooked and it’s a smallmouth bass.

"When hunting the prespawn smallmouth here in Nova Scotia, look for the transitions from deeper main lake water into shallower, warmer bays, inlets and points. A slow presentation is key for your lure, fly or bait."

Excited, we all now have the proof that fish are moving in and it’s game on! We continue along the shore line leapfrogging each other until we get to the back lake where we planned to spend the rest of the afternoon and evening. Another bass and chain pickerel were caught along the way. The back lake water was high but was getting calmer as the weather front was moving out. The sun was peeking through and we knew this would help our cause. The bass were showing activity along the shores hitting small flies and lures so we spread out around the lake. After landing about a dozen bass and half that in pickerel, we made our way back to camp for the night. The food and entertainment was great as we made plans for day two. 
On April 12th we made our way to another system that in the past has produced very well early in the season. Surprised again at the high water level, we set out to find fish. Here, it’s the chain pickerel that are following bait. Not committing though. We managed to land a few on fly before leaving the first lake and heading down to the next lake. We’re all having hits and misses, follows and the occasional break off. We break for shore lunch once in to the next lake but lose one fisher to a stomach flu bug. He paddled back to the vehicles to sit this one out and recover.

Thankfully, the sun appeared and warmed things up. After hours in, only a few pickerel are moved and caught so we head back to meet up with our sick brother, fishing the way back though. More pickerel moving and following but did manage a nice bass too. So we ended day two a little disappointed but that’s fishing.

It's April 13th, early a.m. and three of the group (the fly tiers) are prepping their gear for a trip down from the camp in to a different lake. With one still recovering from illness and the other two up way too late for this early a start, the fly guys set out. The three at camp cleaned up, packed and headed in to town for warm food and hot coffee while the others fished. When the three arrived back at camp, the pictures they had of all the bass they caught on the fly was amazing. It had turned on that morning like a light switch with great results.
Usually, our first trip of the season there is weeks earlier with as many fish caught. It seems things were slow to start but will heat up quickly. Our May trip on different parts of the Meteghan and Annis River systems will be epic!
