A Beginner's Guide to Kayak Fishing | Raymarine - A Brand by FLIR

Promoting Safe and Responsible Kayak Fishing with South Wales Kayak Anglers

Over the last few years modern electronics have found their way onto the fishing kayak in the form of sonar or Fishfinders. As an increasingly common sight on fishing kayaks, the fish finder that has proven to be very popular within the kayak fishing world is our very own Dragonfly range.

With 7 different models to choose from, each packed with features including; CHIRP Sonar, DownVision Sonar, Wi-Fi and even built-in GPS on some models, it’s no surprise that the user manual runs to nearly 140 pages!

In The Box - Dragonfly 7 PRO | Raymarine - A Brand by FLIR

We all know the excitement of opening the box to our brand new, feature-packed gadget, and before long it’s installed and powered up without even glancing at manual.

However, as a visual navigational aid it does pay to take some time to read the manual and fully understand the features of your fishfinder - to help make your time on the water safer, more fun, but above all to help you catch those ever-so-illusive fish!

With that in mind, our friends at South Wales Kayak Anglers have put together an in-depth guide to the Raymarine Dragonfly which is available to you for free.

This guide is designed to help you to understand how to setup, use and get the most out of your Dragonfly whilst Kayak Fishing, and includes topics such as:

  • The benefits of using a fish finder whilst kayak fishing
  • Understanding the basics of the display
  • Sonar vs DownVision
  • Interpreting the display – different types of sea beds
  • The ‘fish arch’ – what does a fish look like?
  • Target your species – Bass and Smooth Hound
