While there are probably better ways to set up a canoe for fishing and trolling, and since a few people have asked, I thought I’d share the recipe I’ve come up with so far.
Kayak Fishing & Canoe Fishing :The stability anglers want with the versatility to fish in all bodies of water. Rigged up and ready to paddle or troll to your favorite fishing hole!
Paddling: For those who want to enjoy the water and their companions without the technical aspects of a traditional canoe or kayak. Easy to paddle, stable, and comfortable, the NuCanoe is your ticket to enjoyment.
Waterfowl Hunting: A waterfowl hunting boat that provides great safety, stability for shooting, and room for the dog. With options like a layout seat and trolling motor, the NuCanoe Waterfowler is the new standard.
Rowing: Glide through the water, rowing the NuCanoe to your favorite fishing hole or for a cruise around the lake on the lazy afternoon. The NuCanoe rower is easy to use, can be set up for a single rower or for a rower and a passenger.
When you’re heading into the BWCA or Quetico Park it isn’t feasible to bring multiple rods per person. One rod per person should be enough for a canoe country fishing trip. A 5 ½ to 6-foot medium action rod is a good choice. You can bring two reels along with heavier line on one and lighter line on the other.
It can be a difficult task that meets all these requirements – but there’s no need to fear, we’ve assembled a list of the best canoes for fishing along with a short guide of what to look for.
