I am very tempted to try my hand at fishing from a kayak.
Could someone who has some experience of this please let me have some info regarding what type of kayak would be best suited for estuary and close shore work,
type in fishing ski on yahoo and look for any sites that end with .co.za fishing skis are used quite a lot in south africa, you have a holder for the rod, and then paddle with it behind u, or u can ledger it instead with your legs hanging over the side - wasnt too keen on this due to the shark aspect tho!
if you are going to use an actual kayak, you need to use something that is stable, like an odysee. a starter boat would be best if you have not got a lot of exp but a starter kayak is not that easy to roll. the best ones for fishing i think are sit on tops
