With over 3,000 lakes, and more than 30,000 miles of rivers, and streams; New York's Adirondack State park is the perfect place to kayak fish. For those of you who haven't tried kayak fishing, now is the time!
The kayak fishing world is rapidly growing because it offers several advantages; most notably it allows me the ability to access nearly all of this water, equaling more fish! I have become a much better fisherman since trading in the big boat for kayak fishing. Kayak fishing is much more intimate than fishing from even the most expensive bass boat. I fish areas more thoroughly, I have way more time to locate structure, weed beds, underwater humps, etc. I can get way deeper into those heavy cover areas. I've even improved my pre-fishing scouting abilities off the water.
As a NYS licensed fishing guide; I find that people are often hesitant to book trips on a kayak fishing adventure versus a big boat charter. I hear all of the excuses: "too old, too big, can't swim." Safety is reason I called on the Jackson Kayak to lead my guided Adirondack adventures. Many boats in the Jackson lineup are ridiculously stable, offer a ton of storage, it floats if capsized, and can be outfitted to suit any anglers needs for any situation. It is essentially a personal bass boat that can take you more places; the most beautiful places. This boat immediately puts clients at ease when they board.
I love guiding trips down the Saranac River into the Mckenzie Mountain Wilderness Area. The smallmouth fishing is incredible, and the abundance of wildlife always outweighs people. Many portions of this river are mere inches deep, with very limited access points. The only way to fish these spots are by kayak or canoe. This is where Jackson Kayak excels. With a draft so shallow. Getting to those shallow bays, over the pads, is never an issue. Outfitted with rod holders, a fish finder, my yeti cooler, and storage room for days; I can keep even the biggest parties comfortable. We use the rivers current to silently push into secluded areas where moose roam.
