Have also done both, mostly from a boat. Caught the biggest, and most from a boat. Wish I still had one. Just got expensive, time consuming, traffic has gotten really bad, did I mention expensive? Once you're "on" the boat, it's a lot easier to fish. Bank fishing to me, means more interaction with other fishermen, not always a good thing, but for the most part, yes.

Even though I would like to have a boat again, I won't due to the above reasons. To give me more options, and expand my range, hopefully in the near future will look more into getting a kayak.

Kayak fishing is about as good as it can get in the real skinny water.

I've got a tandem, so I usually have the fiance with me.

If it's cold, I prefer having other boats around. Otherwise, I go for the solitude.

They are pretty cheap and considerably safer than they look.

I want a kayak. I have seen a bunch of people on the bay with them, and it looks like both great excersise and fun.

I have certainly used crazier methods to fish! In a secret bass hole back home, my buddy and I brought inflatable "boats" for kids that we got at wallmart for 19.00 bucks each. Man we caught so many damn bass in those lil boats, and it was a blast when a big one would actually TOW you around. We used wire fish baskets hanging off the side with rope to keep some blue gills and a couple bass for supper, but it was great fun.

Moral to the story - do what you gotta do.

inawe,

The Virginia Kayak Fishermen's Association (VKFA) gets together from time to time down here around Virginia Beach to go fishing.

If your plans line up with one of our outings, I'd be glad to take you for a ride in my tandem.

Wild River Outfitters in Virginia Beach holds a demo day and a Paddlefest every year. You just missed the demo day, but we can catch up.
http://www.wildriveroutfitters.com/events/events.htm

If you're down this way and get blown out/ rained out, their store makes a good visit.

The stability of fishing kayaks will surprise you. Touring kayaks are narrower and not quite as stable. I find both more stable than a canoe, but that's my opinion.

..and don't rule out kayaks until you've tried one with rodholders.
