Kayak trip in Canada
Good evening,

I know I’m early planning my summer fishing trip but this year I’m changing it up and I’m excited. For the last 8 years I have been going up to northern Ontario near timmins (if anyone know where that is) to a little bush town called Biscotasting, this is a huge lake with amazing pike, and walleye fishing.

This year I’m changing my whole game plan!! I went out and bought myself a kayak and have been practising, but now it’s time to plan my trip. My plan is to go into a creek in the northwest arm of the lake where the walleye spawn in the spring. After lots of research of the area I have found a creek which if I follow it for 2 miles it opens up into a bay then leads to another lake, I’m taking a risk of getting “skunked” on this part of the trip but the adventure to this bay is worth it I hope, knowing that this bay has not been fished in over 10 years.

what I’m wondering from everyone here is if you have any accessorie idea for my kayak for this trip I have a volador angler kayak, I’m
Looking to install a Anchor system, and fish finder, and brands or other idea to customize my kayak would be great.

Thanks you

Have a rock-solid, TESTED rescue plan.

Not going to be able to take much gear with you on an 8 foot kayak, nor will it be overly pleasant to paddle for miles.

The only accessories I would worry about are a fully functional satellite phone and a way to recharge it, 3 different ways of starting a fire, a high-quality waterproof case to put it in, and a lot of insect repellent (stored separately).

Hello there guys,

Take this survey, because my engineering team is designing a new mechanism to pull up your kayak anchor rope and anchor very fast and with minimal water drip-age, or muddy anchors, and no line tangling.

We need to get an idea for what customers want from this product so if you could take this survey it would really help.

Thanks!

Thanks for the reply.

Good idea on the satellite phone, for some reason that did not even register in my mind.

I will have accommodations at a camp I usually stay at so not sure if I want to make this a multi day adventure, or just do this part as a LONG full day of fishing and paddlen.

ok, it sounded as if this was going to be a solo expedition into rather unknown territory. Anyway, IMO the most important thing you can do is file a float plan with responsible people who can launch a SAR mission if you don't come back.

Ya I’m hoping to bring someone along, but when i tell people where I’m going they back out. The lodge owner is very good, checks in on everyone each night make sure everyone is back safe and sound. Which is always nice to have ( anything can happen out on the water)
