Fishing Kayak Length Size Guide

  • 9-10ft: Great for those who need a compact craft. These models are best suited to fishing on nice weather days in calmer waters.
  • 11-12ft: A good all-round size for kayak fishing inland waters and along the coast in calm-to-moderate conditions.
  • 13ft+: The recommended size for those fishing on open stretches of coast where it can often be choppy with ocean swells and more tidal flow. Longer kayaks are faster allowing you to cover distance and paddle against adverse conditions more easily.
