Fishing from a canoe is one of the most effective—not to mention rewarding—ways to fish. Imagine being able to glide along any surface effortlessly and quietly, from deeper waters to sand flats that are chock full of weeds, basically being able to sneak up to fish without them even noticing your approach.
One great canoe would be the Coleman Vantage. This touring canoe measures 13 feet 6 inches, weighing only 25 kilos, or 56 pounds. The beam measures 37 inches or 94 centimeters. It can hold up to 295 kilos, or approximately 650 pounds. It can carry up to two people, with seats that have rod holders for fishing convenience, and comes with two oars and two paddles. Going fishing or river exploring as a family? This canoe features an optional rowing seat that can be easily detached.
The canoe is made of a plastic-like material called Ram-X, which is virtually indestructible. There’s added protection with sleeves over the gunwales. For convenience in carrying it, there are carrying handles at both the fore and aft. The hull is rounded and keeled to prevent side slipping, and improve tracking as well. For easier maneuvering in waves, the bow and stern are at a moderate slope.
With a small craft like a canoe, you are, once again, the silent hunter. Another kind of boat, especially motorized ones, would take so much more time as they scare fish off and you’ll have to wait again for the fish to come back and settle down. With a canoe, your fishing rate will surely increase, as you can now glide towards those spots you previously couldn’t get to.
If you’re a nature enthusiast (as you most likely are), one great thing about the stealth is you will get to observe animals in their habitat without disturbing them, such as kingfishers with brightly-colored plumage doing their own fishing or turtles lazily basking in the sun.
