I been trying to get another Kayak, but have probably given up this year, I do have a Canoe, a Saranac 146, and I've seen ppl make them just as good as Jon Boats or Yaks for fishing.

Question is does anyone here fish out of a Canoe?, any mods/ideas you can help with, yes I've looked on youtube, I'm OK handy but not great, will buy your old mods, or pay you to make them ( also dont have tools i would need anyways )

I fish out of a 14 ft saranac also. I added a garmin depth finder and mounted it inside the hull. Other than that no mods, it's great for creeks and calm water. Not great in the wind on big water.

for stability and ease of paddling look at putting in a saddle, used mostly for whitewater canoes but makes them extremely stable when fishing.
I used mine for racing and fishing in colorado, saddle puts your center of gravity a whole lot lower.

this was one of mine, 12' 6" on a trip thru grand canyon, fished a lot on all 3 trips I made.

saddle and knee pads run about 100.00, use weldwood contact cement to install.

Check into Sportspal/Radisson canoes. They are light weight and very stable.

I spent the first 15 of my paddling life in a canoe. They are great boats.
