Fishing the River

Magnify the excitement of landing a monstrous Mississippi smallmouth bass, walleye, muskie, pike, or catfish by hauling it in from a kayak!

Kayak fishing is one of the fastest growing sports in America, and our premier fleet of fishing kayaks are specially equipped for the outstanding fishing on the stretch of the Mississippi River from St. Cloud to Dayton. With a shallow, rocky bottom and easy flowing current, this stretch is ideal for fishing, but has poor conditions for motor boats. What does that leave? All the fish for those who pick up a paddle!
