I took kayak fishing 2 and 3 with http://www.skils.ca — it was great!
I have jigged for ling cod and trolled for salmon with a “lily pad”. I caught a 12 pound chinook off Vancouver Island last summer. http://madfroggear.com/lillypad.html
My favourite lures are buzz bombs – super simple. I have a small bag of gear to use, and a net. Long pliers are good to release fish you don’t want still in the water.
