Finding kayaks for sale is a great way to get into the sport for a very small investment. A lot of times, an angler will go out an purchase the new shiny expensive boat, and then 6 months later, realize that kayak fishing just isn’t for them. They will then turn around and put their wonderful shiny not so new kayak up for sale, and find out that they are going to lose a lot of money, and not get near as much for it as they had paid 6 months before. This is a common occurrence, and one that I am going to teach you how to use to your https://www.funkytown.ie advantage. Hey, other people want the brightest shiniest boats, so why can’t you too? For a better price!
First things first, do not even look for used inflatable kayaks for sale. This is a very big mistake, because someone else has already abused the poor thing, and as soon as you get a hook in it, your gear is going to the bottom. I don’t recommend inflatable kayaks to begin with, especially when I tell you to use super sharp hooks to make sure you can land every fish you catch. Those two factors combined will, like I said, leave your gear at the bottom of the pond or creek your fishing in at the time.
In my opinion, your best bet would be to try and find a few used Hobie kayaks for sale, because you are going to end up with a kayak that you aren’t going to soon want to get rid of. If you aren’t able to find a Hobie, which doesn’t surprise me, owners are fanatical about them, then you should start looking for sit on top kayaks for sale. You can easily find one in the $200 to $400 price range, and this is an excellent starting point for beginning anglers. The people that are looking for the bright new shiny boat have already taken the loss on a good sit on top, but have also added to their stable, so you won’t be hard pressed to find a decent deal.
Used ocean kayaks for sale can also be converted into a fishing kayak platform, but if one of the above options are available, I would rather go with a Hobie, or even a sit on top, just for the comfort, and fishability of the boat. Ocean kayaks are typically long, to speed across the water, but they don’t always turn so great. The shorter ones are excellent if you plan on being in the surf, but this isn’t the greatest place to have a fishing pole strapped onto your kayak.
