Hey all! I have been reading about fishing from kayak on here and man it sounds like a blast better than the bank! I have a few questions for all you river fishing kayakers... 1) how dangerous is it, what safety precautions are mandatory? 2) do you need any kind of boating permit or license?(besides fishing license) 3) how much do they cost? 4) is the investment worth it? 5) do you launch and plan to hit a destination downstream or paddle back up? 6) what do you use for an anchor? 7) is a kayak viable for say a 12 hour trip? would you have enough room for food/drink/bait/tackle 8) how do you manage 2 poles in a little kayak? 9) any other useful info you may have? I looked into these belly-boats and quickly decided I wasnt dangling my legs in the river but a kayak sounds cool. I know, I know.. just buy a boat yeah? I'm looking for a cheaper alternative since I mainly fish alone. Plus a few years back my brother and I took a v-bottom down the scioto and bottomed out quite often where I had to get out and pull the thing, right until i stepped into a hole that went from knee deep to over my head!~ When I say I fish alone.. feel free to change that! You provide a killer fishing hole or boating excursion thats new to me and I'll provide the killer! <cough> 10) is kayak fishing on a river safe while smoking a big blunderbuster?
