Yesterday, we talked with Damon Bungard about his kayak line that includes every conceivable set up for every conceivable type of fishing. Well today I'm talking to Sportsmen’s Warehouse sales associate Keith McDowell about fishing from a kayak and ask from his perspective, what's the big deal? First of all they are inexpensive. You have bet versus going out and buying a full sized boat. We have a 23 foot off shore and that’s $100,000. So a guy can get out there, granted can’t get out there as far but they can get out in salt, especially down in Florida, I watched a guy the other day on YouTube catch a 300 pound grouper from a kayak. I’m guessing it’s the thrill. Personally, I would not want to be in one. What are they cost? It's been a vary according to how fancy you want but you can get out as cheap as three or $400 to one that has every luxury like a mirage drive where you don’t even have to paddle, you can use these little foot pedals that paddle the boat for you, they can get up between $2-$3000. The other thing is is that you don’t have to have a big vehicle to tow. You can drag one of those around with a Subaru. Throw a kayak or two on top and you and your buddies are all set to go fishing out in the salt or wherever.
