As told by YakGear Brand Ambassador Edward P

One of the secrets to successful kayak fishing on the flats and in the back lakes is to cover a lot of ground. Another thing that took me a long time to learn about angling, in general, is when you should stay put and grind it out, or when you should get a move on and find the fish. If I know where the fish are, and I still cannot get them to bite, either they are not feeding or what I am throwing at them is not appealing. However, if I can’t find the fish, I know I need to move. One of the easiest ways to move and fish at the same time (without pedals) is to drift.
