    Okay, our requests are heard. Once again the BOC listens to the wants and desires of the members and responds accordingly. What have we come to expect but the best from the best?

    Now, which moderator did all of the hard work of moving past posts into this new forum? We need to know so that we can thank you! :0a31:

    For you kayak/canoe catfishers out there...let's get this forum active! :0a17:

    Thanks for the kayak forum. I've been yak fishing since I bought mine last spring. It's great on the local rivers here in Georgia.

    It will be good to share some kayak catfishing tips; after all, most kayak fishing resources I have seen focus on either surf fishing or redfish fishing in brackish backwaters. It is encouraging to know that kayak fishing is also making inroads in freshwater areas.

    Many canoes are designed to be more stable when moving and don't feel as stable when still. I feel that yaks are much more stable whether or not they are moving. You have a much lower center of gravity in a yak. Some manufacturers are now utilizing a tunnel hull in kayak designs that add to their stability. There are several models that allow a fisherman to stand without much fear of flipping. There are also inflatable models (I have this and a hard shell kayak) that are almost impossible to turn over. Kayaks take a little getting used to because you are seated in the middle of the boat and newer paddlers tend to spin until they get the hang of the different paddle strokes needed. There are a bunch of accessories on the market, like rod holders, portable livewells, etc., designed for kayaks. And the best part, no more banged up shoulders when trying to load one atop a vehicle alone like you get with a heavier canoe!

    When young people start catching on to how thrilling it is to catch a catfish in a kayak or canoe, watch out! We're talking X-treme Sports! Buckin' catfish rodeo! A round-robin, cross-lake or upriver ride of a lifetime! :tounge_out:

    It's nice to know that the BOC is getting in on the ground floor of a blossoming new sport, just wait and see! :wink:

    I can't wait to see DH riding a kayak upriver pulled by a gigantic Blue in Catfish America!
