Kayak  Plunking- Wednesday, September 07, 2016

Kayak Plunking

For the last 25 years a group of friends and I have cast for salmon from the upper beach in Kalama, Wa. Now we have been taken over by kayak Plunking. They are disappointed with the break away sand bags and have gone back to littering our beautiful Columbia River.

Every form of weight is employed from rocks to car parts. It is nearly impossible to cast next to them because of endless tangles. Kayaks should and eventually will be banned or restricted once the game people wake up.

The main obstacle is that the people who make such decisions are kayakers because it’s so effective. Finally, I have observed and reported kayakers who fill their coolers with salmon.

Many times in the peak of the run it takes them longer to set up than to catch their fish so they don’t leave and catch more and more.

The Essentials of Kayak Fishing

Kayak Fishing Is Challenging and Tough on your Wallet, but the Reward Is a Whole World of Fishing at Your Fingertips

By Sean O’brien

Fishing from a kayak is, in one word, freedom.  A well piloted kayak can be handled in whitewater and choppy coastal waters, and it’s compact enough to navigate waters where other boats can’t go.  With that flexibility and a knowledge of habitat and feeding patterns, a kayak fisherman can fish virtually anywhere, any time, and any way.  It’s also unbelievably fun, and can turn a bad day of fishing into a great day on the water kayak fishing.
