There are numerous factors a lot of individuals choose a sit-on-top kayak for catching fish.
Flexibility & Comfort
This is a big deal. Among the huge reasons top fishing kayaks has removed over the last couple of years is as a result of the SOT (Sit-On Top).
In the old days of SIK (Sit-In-Kayaks) the paddler is confined to a pretty tiny cabin. Now, that’s penalty for paddling about. Particularly if you wish to do it quickly. As long as you had some experience, and also were practiced in rolling (Eskimo) you understood you can get around safely, regardless of what was tossed at you.
The problem with SIKs was that being confined to a little cabin meant you couldn’t move the real kayak effectively at all.
Being able to openly walk around. Attract. Cast. Obtain your equipment established. These are all the little things that angling folk need to do, as well as SOTs are a large advantage here.
Not just that, but SOTs allow you to stand up on the ‘yak, which is terrific for having even more of a bird’s- eye sight of what’s actually going on down there! Having the liberty to walk around also allows the kayaker stretch and move around. So you can stay out fishing for longer. Win!
If you’re embeded the one placement and unable to walk around openly, then firstly, there a chance that you will start feeling claustrophobic. And second of all, the possibilities of pains and also discomforts embeding in boosts. Both are a result of being in the one position regularly.
Fishing In Shallow Waters
This is kinda still within the versatility classification above, yet hey, we wished to break it up a little!
A SOT fishing kayak enables you to quickly enter and also out of the kayak. Obtained waders? Well, you can conveniently leap out as well as fish from outside the ‘yak.
That’s not so easy in a sit-in kayak. It can be a bit of a pain getting in as well as out of these, especially if you’re doing it all the time. Actually, there’s even more opportunity of tipping over the kayak when using waders.
