Kayak fishing season has arrived, along with some new fishing-specific paddle gear that will make your time on the water more effective and more comfortable.
Wilderness Systems' Tarpon 120 Ultralite is a stable yet sleek sit-on-top kayak for beginners and advanced paddlers alike. Easy-access hatches and deck bungee rigging are perfect for securing fishing gear, while an incredibly manageable weight of just 43 lbs makes transportation and storage a breeze for solo-trips. $1395.
The Bomber Gear Oneida Paddle Suit is perfect for spring fishing or cooler summer mornings and evenings. Waterproof and breathable, it will provide just the right amount of protection from the water without restricting your movement for casting or paddling. $599.
The Adventure Technology Oracle Angler Paddle has camo blades with Duraweave reinforced tips for abrasion resistance, 10 cm of length adjustment and infinite feathering options, a measuring tape on the shaft, and a line hook on the blade. $275.
Bomber Gear's new Baja UV Protection Shirt will keep the sunburn away and help regulate your body temperature, whether you're paddling through cool early morning lake mist or under the hot midday sun. With UPF 50 built into the Polartec ® Power Grid ® material, the Baja wicks moisture away from your skin and protects you from the elements. $45.
RinseKit is like having a garden hose in the back of your car, at the beach or on the boat ramp. The self-contained system quickly fills from a household water spigot and sprays high-pressure water through a nozzle with 7 different settings. It requires no batteries or pumping, holds water pressure for a month and sprays for up to 4 minutes. Great for spraying off muddy boots, boats and waders before packing up to head home. $89.
