Many anglers can’t get enough of kayak fishing, which is a cheap, exciting and healthy sport that lets you set your own pace while you hunt for magnificent fish like mackerel, snapper and tuna. Fishing kayaks are also extremely versatile; how far you can go from the coast of Perth really depends on your set time frame and paddling ability. However, as with all types of water sports, kayak fishing also comes with risk. Here are some safety reminders:
Surprises by the weather. Forecasts are not always accurate. Don’t let your guard down even when the water appears placid and the winds calm; something unexpected can happen at any time of day. Always wear a PFD and don’t forget to bring a portable waterproof VHF radio to keep you updated about potential weather disturbances.
