Thanks for stopping by my About page! My name is Tony, and I run the site here: Bestkayakguide.com.
Like lots of you, I have fished since I was a kid. I’ve always loved fishing but as the years have gone by, fishing pressures have increased and I was not getting the kind of catches that wanted. This lead to frustration and at one point I even considered giving up fishing. Going fishing time and time again and not catching really got me down!
I kept seeing peoples catches online so I knew the fish were still there, but they were just in harder to reach locations. I decided that something need to be done and the obvious choice at the time was to buy a boat. I looked into it and to get a reasonable one was going to cost the same as buying a new car or more! And even then, once you own it, it’s just a money pit what with gas at the price it is nowadays. Anyways, even if you can afford it you can’t get into those never reached spots in the reeds and towing it to new locations is a nightmare!
After searching around online it suddenly became obvious that a kayak was the way to go. What I found was A LOT of information and TONS of options! In fact, it was so much information, that I felt a bit overwhelmed. I wanted something where I could compare prices, length, width, tracking, and more in an easy to read and use format. Now, while there are a lot of sites that sell kayaks offering biased reviews or Youtube videos from people sharing what their opinions of what the best fishing Kayak on the market is; I saw these as just that…opinions.
I appreciate opinions, but I also like looking at the cold hard facts and comparing directly. Dissatisfied with the lack of comparison guides for Fishing Kayaks out there, I decided to create my own. After spending many hours of research and analysis, I’ve put together what I call the Ultimate Fishing Kayak Guide! Its a complete interactive chart that allows you to view the information you want to see on nearly 50 of the top Fishing Kayaks on the market.
I have gone through a few kayaks now looking for the one that suits me perfectly. I wish I could have had a resource that told me everything that I know now when I first started out and so I set out to do exactly that.
My goal with the site here is to give you the information you need in an easy to digest format so that you can make the best possible kayak buying decision based on what matters to YOU. Yes, I’ll be providing my own opinions and input along the way, but when it comes right down to it, you might be more concerned with price than being fast.
As I do more research, I’ll be providing in-depth reviews of fishing kayaks, videos of my own tests with different kayaks, and more comparative analysis.
In short, I hope my site here with help you find the best fishing kayak for you.
