Complete Fishing Guide

For an entirely new twist on the sport, climb into a kayak and spend a day jockeying for power with your prey. Nothing beats the tug-of-war feeling you get from not having a powerboat anchored beneath your feet when a fish takes a hit on your line.

Extremely popular and easy to learn, kayak fishing may be limiting when it comes to gear, but thrilling when it comes to execution. Live crickets are the perfect bait for landing bountiful bream -- a great fish to catch for first-timers or kids just starting out. Perch and both white and black crappie regularly patrol for meals along the Northwest River in the warmer months, while largemouth bass, chain pickerel and catfish top the charts when the waters cool. Schooling yellow and white perch also are plentiful in the winter months.
