I recently got interested in fishing (very serious about taking it as a hobby) and I want to get into kayak fishing. Note that I am new to both, fishing and paddling.
Although I don’t have a car, I live fairly close to the water in Boston (200 feet from the Charles River and 1.5 miles from the inner harbor). However, the ideal launch location (in terms or proximity to fishing spots) is ~2miles miles from where I live. So:
- how far can an average person haul a relatively lightweight fishing kayak in a cart (mostly on the sidewalks)?
- anyone tried pulling a kayak with a bicycle trailer?
- can you haul kayaks on car rentals? Are there on-demand style services for hauling your kayak to and from the water?
- how far the launch point can be from the intended fishing location? 2-3 miles is considered reasonable for a day trip?
Kayak rentals are not a good option as most rental places that are accessible to me have only Sit-In kayaks that are pretty uncomfortable for fishing and launch locations are very far from where I want to go fishing.
