World Fishing Network Writer, Peter Wagner, Blogs About Piranha Hand Paddle

Peter Wagner, writer for the World Fishing Network, blogged about the Piranha Kayak Fishing Hand Paddle.  Below is his commentary:

I recently acquired a Piranha Kayak Fishing Hand Paddle by the Backwater Paddle Company. I have found this paddle to be a valuable tool that could be useful to all kayak fisherman.

I have a Hobie peddle kayak and when I would try to sneak up to the mangroves to sight fish most of the time the water is to shallow to use the peddles. I would have to undo the bungee cord from the paddle holder and use the paddle. Most of the time I end up banging the paddle on the kayak scaring the fish away. I keep the Piranha paddle behind my seat and I can quickly and quietly grab that paddle and sneak up to the fish. It is also a great tool for making adjustments to your drift when you are drift fishing.

There is and old saying in South Florida ” if your not snagging your lures in the mangroves your not casting to where the fish are”. I snag the mangroves quite often. This is where this paddle excels.You use the Piranha to paddle into the mangroves and hold onto the mangroves with the hook that’s built into the paddle while you dislodge your lure. Then you use the serrated edge of the paddle to push yourself away from the mangroves.
The Piranha Kayak Fishing Hand Paddle hardly takes up any space on your kayak and is a handy tool to have on your yak. This is one of those inventions you look at and say to yourself “why didn’t I think of that”. You can order your Piranha paddle at http://backwaterpaddles.com/ .
