Best Beginner & First Fishing Kayaks

Great-Value Starter Fishing Kayaks

These kayaks are for those looking for their first fishing kayak. These are the best beginner and starter fishing kayaks we sell. They are affordable yet still include the features required for fishing to make your day on the water enjoyable. The shorter 10ft fishing kayaks are great for those planning on fishing lakes, slow moving inland waters and calm sheltered coastal conditions close to shore. They are fine for paddling over short distances but are harder work paddling over longer distances. Their shorter size means that they aren't going to be the fastest through the water so if you are planning on fishing exposed stretches of coastline or large open inland waters, where you may be at the mercy of the wind, swell and tide, then take a look at the longer fishing kayaks as these will perform better in such conditions. The kayaks in this section are great for those who are new to the sport and want to get a taste of kayak fishing in calm conditions before deciding on whether to pursue it further, perhaps with a longer fishing kayak that may be more suitable to the kayak fishing they intend to do.
