Hello all...I decided to purchase a kayak last week and I am quite anxious to get it out on the creek (though I'm not stupid enough to do it now). I will be adding an extra rod holder with the help of a friend so that I can troll while paddling, but since I have never really done this before, I was curious if those who kayak a bit for fishing if they would be willing to share some tips or advice. I will primarily be using this on BWC, mostly south of Three Creeks. When wading, if the water isn't high, the flow does not seem overpowering, so I think I'd be able to paddle both directions. That said, I have literally never kayaked before (flat bottom boat that I row...yes) and I'm curious if folks think it would be a good idea to find a fairly small and quiet lake to practice first (say, Hargus) or how they approached their first time. Secondarily, I tend to bring too many things with me, so I'm curious how others limit their tackle they take. I'm normally a crankbait and swimbait kind of guy, though I am determined to learn some finesse this year, particularly jigs, but I don't necessarily think I need to take them all with me. Any words of wisdom will be greatly appreciated.
