  1. you'll probably find your kayak to be a bit sturdier than a canoe but slightly less comfortable over the long-term. you can buy extra padding for the seat, or i'll use my inflatable hiking pad and sit on that.it can be awkward to both hold a paddle and fish, but you can cheaply get a leash for the paddle.all in all, i think you're really going to enjoy it. it's good exercise, too.
