Jim Sammons gives offers some tips for using handheld VHF radios, focusing on the basics you should know when applying the technology to kayak fishing. A great tool for safety and communication while out on the water, you should definitely consider a VHF radio for your next trip to the water!
Andrew Gibson (2020 Old Town Bigwater PDL 132), Jason Duca (2020 Vibe Shearwater 125), and I (2020 Old Town Bigwater PDL 132) decided to do some kayak recovery and re-entry practice after spending the early January day chasing Lake Erie Walleye. After 8 hours of constant trolling from our kayaks, we put our fishing gear away and launched back out onto the lake to practice our safety and rescue skills
This time I want to talk about kayak self rescue, re-entry, and the importance of practicing frequently so when you do accidentally fall out (Not if but when), you are prepared to perform a self rescue.
Stay safe on the water with these highly visible kayak safety flags! My friend's wife made the first 2 for us to keep us safe when fishing off the shores of Lake Erie. They were such a hit, she decided to offer them to others so that EVERYONE is safe on the water!
Today I took a trip to Wallace lake to test out my Kokatat Hydrus 3.0 SuperNova Angler Semi-Dry Paddling Suit and my very important stack of under layers. Air Temp is 38* Water Temp 42*
n this video I go visit Jeff Burdick to discuss what safety gear we should bring when kayaking, canoeing, or boating on Lake Erie and other large bodies of water.
