Fishing Kayak FAQ
How is a Fishing Kayak Different Than a Regular Kayak Rental?
A fishing kayak has a few additional features you won’t find in a standard kayak. From top to bottom they’re made with fishermen in mind. Fishing kayaks feature built-in rod holders, track systems for accessories, recessed tackle box storage and more. Fishing kayaks are also designed to be extremely balanced and stable while you’re reeling in fish on Town Lake Austin.

What Should I Bring with me on my Austin Kayak Fishing Trip?
We provide the fishing kayak with an adjustable stadium-style seat, paddle, and lifejacket, but you’ll need to bring along your own fishing pole, bait, lures and a cooler.
