I've done kayaking before and my wife has just bought me an angler kayak so i can start sea fishing off or cowes in the solent.

However, I've never done fishing before and while i'm very keen, i'm also very green.

I need help in deciding what types of rod and reel etc i need?

Do I need multiple rods as seen in many kayak fishing pics?

I'm fishing for eating not sport. My kids and I love fish and its expensive still so I thought I could enjoy my kayak, get int ofishing and bring home supper!!!

Do I sound daft?? lol

Hi, welcome to the forum. A lot of peeps fish for their supper, but as your new to the game, can i just point out that there are size limits. If you look on the left of the homepage under forums, you will see NFSA size limits. Also, with conservation in mind, could you only take what you need. You probably already know this, but i wouldnt want you to inadvertantly do something that would get the backs up of your fellow anglers. Sorry im no help with your kayak fishing, but im sure someone will be along to help you out, and might even be able to show you the ropes. Good luck, and if your successful, mines a Cod buttie, with salt n vinegar. big grin big grin big grin Cheers..Mick

Thanks for this, I'd be impressed catching a fish let alone loads. Seriously though its a very valid point. I'd only look to catch what we could and would eat.

As for the question of minimum size, this is also the kind of advice I need before I go out so will definitely read up first.

Thanks

May I suggest that you start a fresh post with your fishing area in the subject line. You may very well get an offer of help from someone in that area that way. I assume that you realise that the season is nearly over for most of us and March/April is when it starts again depending on where you are.

Types of rod and reel is a matter of taste. Go down to your local tackle shop and see what deals they have on offer. My local tackle shop is doing a rod and fixed spool reel deal for 15 for yakers.

If you are fishing only because fish is expensive to buy, then you will find it costs an awful lot more to catch yourself.

Don't be tempted to buy very expensive rods as one capsize could/will break them, as for length 7 foot seems about right with a 8-12 LB class rod
