Kayak fishing inevitably comes with some dangers: you might get hooked, bitten by something, or capsize into the water. Any paddling sport or fishing sport can lead to these, but as a kayak angler you need to be even more prepared because there is also a chance you're out on the water alone. And, since you're under trees and in the vegetation, you have an even higher chance of encountering wildlife than a typical yakker. So, follow these tips: **Keep an eye on your surroundings at all times. **Bring a first aid kit. **Where a PFD! (Personal flotation device) **If you flip your kayak, focus on recovering yourself into the yak before you try to reclaim your gear. **Check the weather before going out; no need to put yourself in dangerous conditions that could be avoided! **Practice capsizing when the waters are warm. Purposely throw yourself out of the boat so you know you know how to get back in on the water.
I'll stick to my boat still...but good tips man hopefully people listen or it can get real dangerous
