Kayak Fishing On Keuka Lake

keuka lake realtor

Kayaking has become a very popular activity in and around the waters of the Finger Lakes.  It offers a nice stress free way of relaxing and the opportunity to get some fresh air and a little exercise. I see many people out in the waters in their kayaks, young and old.

Fishing takes on a whole new feel, when you give up the motors os a boat for a nice relaxing afternoon on the lake in your kayak, moving at your own pace.  You slowly paddle to where you want to be cast a line and just sit back and relax.

Many outdoor stores can give you some ideas to outfit your kayak to make your fishing adventure enjoyable. You don’t need a lot.

 Keuka Lake offers so many nice coves to fish in as well as the Keuka Outlet.  The outlet is also a great place to launch your kayak.

If fishing out of a boat has become tedious and expensive, try fishing out of a kayak.  There is no gasoline to worry about, no backing the trailer and waiting in lines to launch your boat and nothing to worry about doing by yourself.  Instead just pull the kayak off your vehicle, grab your gear and in the water you go.

My Apologies For Any Errors Past Present And To Come

In writing my blog, I am like anyone else.  I have typos, the misuse of grammar and sometimes information that does not present itself in the correct manner.  Some of the information is from public documents or portals and some of the information is from my opinions or has been accumulated from statistical measures that I have put together. 

 I try to take my own pictures or use ones available to the public, or even sometimes purchase pictures.  When the pictures are not mine, I try to give credit to the photographer when known. Of course this is not always possible.

If any information gets out on my blog that contains errors, I will indeed make the corrections.  I am far from perfect and even the best newspapers and journals end up printing errors after numerous runs by editors.    I always have my contact information loud and clear on my blog so that anyone with a concern can contact me. 

So if I have offended anyone – I really am sorry and apologize for my short comings.  I want my blog to be informative and interesting.

I will attempt to do a better job of making less errors in 2013.

Kindly,

Mary
