  • Kayak fishing

    Any kayak fisherman out there? I've grown to love it in the last few months.

    I don't really fish from the Kayak anymore but we do go Kayaking from time to time. My boat sat for two years without moving after i bought my first kayak. Fished a lot when I first got into it.

      My wife and I have been kayak fishing for about 10 years in the Indian River and Mosquito Lagoon.......we love it!!!! fortunately or unfortunately, we bought a flats boat a few years ago and that gets most of our attention anymore.

      However, kayaks got us places boats never could and we snuck up on schools of fish numbering in the 100's and floated right over them (reds/black drum) what a sight!!

      Enjoy your kayak!!!

        I love fishing form a kayak too.Get you into all sorts of great places. The only reason I prefer a boat in the flats, is to get some elevation to see into the water. It is really hard to see into the water when your sitting in a kayak.

          I can move my seat to a high position & stand in my Jackson Cruise12 if it's calm. I've seen guys do it in some chop but my balance isn't there yet. It definitely takes lots of practice.

              I'm with you rzach, loved my kayaks but getting older and lazier!!!!! Plus, if them fish aren't biting in one spot you can head for another at ease!!!

                Kayak fisherman here, for 10 yrs. Lots of fun, we'd go down the Peace and Hillsboro rivers when we lived down there( up here in the Panhandle, it's the Yellow and Blackwater rivers and Escambia Bay). Go kayak camping, too. That's lots of fun, too.

                One thing, they cost ALOT less to upkeep than a boat. They say that there's 2 best days in a boat owner's life: they day he buys a boat and the day he sells it....lol
