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’s the Best Fishing Kayak?
There are a number of high quality brands, including the Perception Pescador Pro 12 model we have here at Rowing Dock. It has an anchor, stadium style seating with upright and recline positions, rod holders, recessed tackle box storage and a center console for rigging fish finder electronics.
What Should I Take on an 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. The Perception Pescador Pro 12 fishing kayak is also designed to work with a variety of rigging systems. We also highly recommend that you bring sunscreen, water and snacks to make your Lady Bird Lake fishing trip more comfortable.
