Tips for Choosing A Best Fishing Kayak


Best Fishing kayaks come in all different shapes and sizes and it's important that you choose the right one. Because not only will it let you get the most enjoyment out of your time on the water, it'll make you safer on the water.
When choosing a fishing kayak, narrowing down your options is actually pretty easy, and it starts with identifying how and where you'll be using it:
• Will you be fishing small sheltered bodies of water like ponds and small lakes?
• Or will you be taking the kayak on big bodies of water that are exposed to wind and waves?
• What's the water temperature going to be like?
• And when it comes to performance, is it more important to have a kayak that's fast and responsive?
• Or are you more concerned about having a kayak that is stable and difficult to tip over?
With these questions in mind your first and biggest decision will be whether to get a sit-inside kayak or a sit-on-top kayak.
Sit-on-top kayaks are the most user friendly fishing kayaks. They're very stable and easy to get in and out of, and there's no feeling of confinement on them. They're also self bailing, which means the water drains through small holes called scupper holes. They go right through the bottom of the kayak. This means you can't swamp a sit-on-top kayak. Another great safety feature is that sit-on-tops are much easier than sit-insides to get back on to from the water, if for some reason you fall off. The one downside to sit-on-top kayaks is that you're almost guaranteed to get wet while paddling, while sit-inside kayaks allow you to stay dry.
Sit-inside kayaks can be a good option for anglers who will be in cooler water, who want to stay dry while paddling, and who want a faster moving kayak. Just keep in mind that if you flip a sit-inside kayak, recovery is not necessarily a simple process because the kayak may swamp. As you're learning, try to stay in sheltered water or close to shore so you can swim in if you need to.
Once you've decided on whether to go for a sit-inside or sit-on-top kayak, you'll need to decide on a length for your fishing kayak. As a general rule, a long and narrow kayak will be faster, while a short and wide kayak will be slower but more stable. If you are only going to be fly fishing and sight casting, a short, wide, and stable boat is a great choice because standing is easy. The trade-off is that the kayak will be pretty slow and not ideal for paddling any real distance. On the flip side, if you want to cover more ground or maybe even troll offshore, you might want to choose a longer, narrower kayak that travels through the water more efficiently.
Once you decided on the style and size of kayak, there's one more key decision to make: Do you want a pedal kayak or do you want a paddle kayak? Traditionally kayaks are powered by paddles, but there are a number of companies that now offer pedal kayaks. One of the benefits of pedal kayaks is that they leave your hands free for fishing. The downside is that they're less maneuverable and heavier than other kayaks. The pedal system also works less efficiently in really shallow water. If you do decide on a pedal kayak, something to keep in mind is that it's very important you have a good paddle on board as a backup.
At this point you dramatically reduce your options, and most of your decisions will now impact the comfort of your kayak, and relate to features of convenience for the type of kayak fishing you're going to do.

Thinking about purchasing a Kayak? Steps to be sure it is the right one for...


Hello. Kayaking has gained so much in popularity lately. And, it is such fun, and green fun too! Unlike a power boat, once you have your kayak, your personal floatation device [life jacket] and your paddle; you need not carry bundles of cash as you won't have to spend a penny on fuel.

You can get a one person model, or a two person model. In my experience, the one person model is the way to go. Among other things, you do not have to coordinate your strokes with a partner.

Now let's consider length. Kayaks can be as long as 17 feet and as short as 9 feet. Longer kayaks can be used for more storage, while shorter kayaks can turn much more easily. A good length for a beginner is 9 to 12 feet long, while kayaks that are used for tours are as long as 17 feet. The only limiting factor is storage.

What about storage? Do not buy a 14 foot kayak if you only have room to store a 13 footer. Enough said.

Regarding feel, fit, and stability; the only fool proof method is to try several out. Go to a kayak store that offers free fittings on the water. When we did this, the store had 70 different kayaks available and you could literally try them all if you wanted to. It took several hours to find the perfect kayak but it was well worth the time.

Sit On or Sit In: definitely your personal preference. Once you try a number of each out you will make your own decision here. Needless to say if you invision yourself doing serious white water kayaking you will want the type you sit in with a bib to keep you somewhat dry. For general kayaking in calm water, the sit on kayaks are great fun.

And now the paddle: you will want to consider length, weight, and what the paddle is constructed from. Aluminum is light and inexpensive but it will be as cold as the water you put it in.....I stay away from aluminum for that reason. Wood is good for cold water but on the heavy side; and like anything wood you have to maintain it's finish. My choice, even though it is more money is carbon fiber. These are very light, very durable and the most expensive. I believe, however, that they offer you the best investment.

What about lessons? Definitely take at least three hours worth of lessons when you start so that you develop good habits. Enjoy! Joe

How do I fit a spring to the grass chute deflector guard on my qualcast1200w electric rotary mower


The thing about springs is that they anchor at one or two places. If the chute guard is plastic, you might want to use your ingenuity to devise a way for the spring to attach to the chute and then anchor to the mower body. Pop rivets are great (and inexpensive) for this kind of retrofit. I recommend using a washer with the pop rivet in the plastic to keep it from pulling through with time and fatigue. Remember, need is the mother of invention....so start inventing a work around. I hope this helps :-)

How do I adust the seat back to make it not flop around


install an anchor behind the seat or install two of them, located equi-distant from the seat location on both sides but behind. The strap loops on the seat are for nylon straps with buckles. Attach to seat and attach straps in rear to anchors. You'll need pop-rivet tool to attach the anchors and if your seat is decent quality, it should have straps sewn-into it on the edges. Be sure to use a good seat-back with an area of padding to sit yourself onto. Life gets uncomfortable without a padded seat bottom!

Thule Hullavator arm does not automatically lift as other arm does....seems to be leaking fluid?


Hullivator lift cylinders are pneumatic, there is no fluid to leak. However, they do fail, and when they do, they do not provide lift. Despite what Thule says, the cylinders can be replaced. I have replaced 4 of them. Drill out the rivets holding the old cylinders in place. I bought new cylinders from LiftSupportDepot.com - they were very helpful and they charged a little less than $30 each for the cylinders. The first cylinders were 75 pound lifts. Those my sister found too light to provide all the lift she wanted. I have since installed 150 pound lifts (this will require a clamp). I cut off, and reused, the longer of the original Thule rivets where the shorter rivet formerly was, and used a 5/16ths 4" stainless bolt in place of the longer rivet. It will take a couple of tries and some prying to get all the holes lined up for that last bolt, under pressure, but in retrospect it will all seem to have been surprisingly easy. Good luck.

Kayak drifting to the left


These boats are very short and have a smooth hull with very little keel. Because of this they will not track well and will have a tendency to turn.

You don't say how experienced a paddler you are.
Check also that you are holding your paddle equi distant from both blades. You may be unconsciously paddling harder with your right hand if you are right handed. Most of us are one-side dominant. You may also be sitting slightly diagonally in the boat without realising it. Experiment with shifting your position. Also consider a backrest if one is not already fitted.

You can fit a skeg to the stern whichwill improve straight line tracking. Abit like a fixed rudder. Use heavy duty elastic to hold it onto the boat stern.

Washer wont fill, keeps draining


If you do not allow an air gap for proper drainage on your drain line, the water will siphon out of the washer as it tries to fill. Double check to make sure: 1. You do not have the washer drain hose placed too far down into the standpipe. 2. You do not have the top of the standpipe sealed off. Placing the hose too far into the standpipe may cause the drain line to be sitting in water in the drain trap, leaving no air gap. Sealing off the top of the standpipe will have the same affect. Remember, you need an air gap for proper drainage. Only place the hose about 3 to 4 inches into the standpipe and the fit should not be tight. That is, there should be an air gap around the drain hose as it sits inside the standpipe. Double check and let me know if this helps.
