Sometimes you need to transport your fishing kayak over long distances before launching it, or after you’ve returned from your fishing trip. In many cases, you can simply drag it on the ground, but in other cases, this is either impossible, or not advisable.
Depending where you need to go, the types of wheels and carts vary.
For straight and hard terrain, such as asphalt roads and parking lots, a single, small size wheel could suffice. The advantage of small wheels is that they don’t take much space once you carry them on board your kayak.

However, if you need to travel over deep, soft sand, a rocky road, or uneven pavement, you’d need to consider one or two large size wheels, and preferably such that are soft, as the inflatable wheel seen here:
