Choosing the right kayak depends on a few things: such as the size of the person who will be using it, the types and sizes of waters they are going to be using the kayak, and what types of on water activities they intend to do with the kayak – such as kayak fishing. The smaller the kayak, the easier it will be to maneuver in smaller bodies of water, such as rivers, streams, or smaller ponds. The bigger the kayak, typically the more stable it will be for bigger bodies of water, like lakes, larger rivers or offshore on the ocean. The wider the kayak, the more stable it will be as well – particularly for standing up – so for sight-fishing, you’ll want to select a wider kayak.
