    I was thinking that perhaps the BOC might be proactive and encourage the catfishing kayakers of the brotherhood!

    One way they could accomplish this would be to create a forum especially for kayaking catfishermen... How many of you would like to contribute your input on such a forum?

    Wouldn't have much input, but would love to have the info available in one area.

    I am very interested in kayak cattin'.

    I am in the process of rigging my kayak now, and am gathering idea as we speak.

    Would love any hint/ tips I could get from the brotherhood of kayak catters.

    C'mon, folks. I know there are several kayakers out there already who have not posted.

    Get on board so that the BOC Moderators can see how many of us out there are Cattin' Yakkin'!

    There may be a forum dedicated to cattin' yakkin' in our future!

    Been at it a couple of years now. Love that Kayak Kitty Chasing....especially the towing. Aw Gators don't much bother Yakkers (so far):big_smile:

    I usally stick to the bays or the ocean in mine. If I do catfish, I use it to get to tough to reach places and fish from the bank. The forum sounds interesting though.

    I have been using a kayak to fish from for about 2 or 3 months and would like to hear from others that are using kayaks.

    Please open up a Yak Board for us. I have been fishing off of my yak for 3-4 years primarly ocen and bay also but have found the rewards of fishing for kitties on my yak. I will advise I am terrified to death of the gator but hell i rather get eaten by a gator than go out getting hit by a drunk driver!
    Tight lines Guys!

    Add me to the list, in the process of setting up a kayak for fresh and saltwater use. I am very lucky in being within 10 miles of both excellent tidal flats for redfish, flounder and seatrout and a couple of semi-wild brackash streams that hold lots of bream, bowfins, catfish and bass.... Ahhhh life is good

    I think it would be a good idea as well, but i dont believe there are enough of us to warrant the expense!!

    Well, Steve, I figured that if they have the following forums on Catfish1.com...

    NHL Talk
    Art Appreciation
    BigG - Tea talk NFL
    Antique Shop
    .
    .
    .

    I think a kayak catfishing forum would be quite in line with the BOC mission! :wink:

    Have been looking into this as a way to increase my range of fishing. Maybe it should be a Kayak and canoe area.
    Over here around Truman lake I think it would also be a blast for fishing the many trees in the water for crappie.

    What's great about kayak catfishing is that you can troll two lines (or more, if you can rig it), from behind you while you drift. If you are careful, you can get closer to snags and cover than with any other craft. I also cast away from the shoreline if I don't have to concentrate too much on the changing water depth.

    When a catfish strikes, you're in for quite a ride! :0a23:

    I was an avid ocean yakker in NJ for stripers off the coast. Left my yak in jersey. Now I beat my head against the wall everytime I think about it :sad2:

    I went trotlining a number of times last year on Lake Palestine. Really enjoyed it. Went with one of my sons. We mounted an ice chest on his kayak so as I gathered the kitties, I could dump them in his ice chest. Worked really well with two of us. This year I bought a motor boat :0a22:and there's something about those monthly payments makes me feel an obligation to use it:tounge_out:. When I get some kind of kayak rack for my truck, I plan to take the kayaks and tow them behind the boat so I can get into those places the boat won't go.

    I've committed to building two for us this winter.
    We've got some nice flatheading water that kayaks will be perfect for.
    I have decided on one of the plans I have. Its a 15 footer.
    She'll weigh in at 35-45 pounds.
