Fishing kayaks catch on with anglers

Fishing KayakAccording to a story in The Providence Journal, the fishing kayak becoming a popular watercraft in the waters off New England.

Fishing from a kayak? How can you fish from a boat that is designed to roll over and requires you to hold a paddle with both hands?

A fishing kayak mentioned in the story is the Hobie’s Mirage Drive kayak, powered by foot-pedal driven flippers. The Mirage Drive can be equipped with outriggers, or “amas” or used with a sail.

A fishing kayak can be deployed without a boat ramp and a trailer. Because there is no motor to fuel up with a fishing kayak, anglers on a budget like them.
