How To Read A Fishing Kayak Review?

Tough question indeed.

Moreover, why should you even bother to read that fishing kayak review in the first place?
There are so many fishing kayak reviews out there, in websites, online forums, and in print, and we’re supposed to read them all and make something out of it.
Well, I say it’s not serious.

To begin with, you should assign zero credibility to anything you read, whether online or in print, unless both author and publisher have done everything possible to come clear as far as their identity and intentions are concerned. Anyone publishing anything carries the burden of proof as far as the credibility of the stuff they publish goes. I say if it doesn’t look right, it ain’t right. Period.

Once you’re past that threshold, you can look and see if that fishing kayak review is interesting or meaningful to you in any way. Chances are it’s not that informative, and lacks relevance for you, although you may be able to learn something from it, as far as a particular issue goes.

So, if you want to know how to begin looking for fishing kayak reviews and parsing all the stuff (sorry, I meant to say BS) the Internet would throw at you, here’s a link to your guide to fishing kayak reviews >>

Kayak Fishing In The Midwest

Here are some websites and blogs related to kayak fishing in the Midwest:

First, the Midwest kayak fishing section of the US Fishing Kayak Magazine: http://fishing-kayak.us/fishing-kayak-Midwest.html , which offers fresh news, trip reports, rigging tips, and other useful info. It’s updated frequently, and that’s a good reason to visit and bookmark it.

This blog called Northern Kayak Fishing is not specific to the Midwest, but it’s the best as far as kayak fishing in cold weather and water is concerned, and that’s why it’s relevant to the Midwest:

And this is a website whose author lives and fishes in Wisconsin. It’s called Brew City Kayaks (Brew City is the nickname given to Milwaukee), and it’s super interesting to follow.

Here’s an excerpt from it:
-”Big bass like this lurk in lakes that receive little fishing pressure. Boats and regular kayaks are not able to reach these types of water that the Wavewalk can access. I am able to maneuver over objects such as bogs and logs and tight spots. Being able to stand also comes in handy while looking for fish and pockets in shallow water. I find these fish factories by checking satellite photos and maps. The Wavewalk kayak does the rest. It is not surprising that these lakes, ponds and streams hold quality fish. The amazing part is that they can be so close to urban areas.”

And this is a new kayak fishing blog from Minnesota that looks promising, although there’s still little to read in it: http://minnyaks.com/ The pictures are good, and the owner seems to be good in rigging kayaks.
