Kayak Fishing Ultimate Resource

  • Kayak Shad Fishing

    It seems to start around mid-January: the urge to take the kayak up to my local river and catch some migrating shad. They are fun to catch, providing awesome rod-bending action and the occasional aerial display. Also, I can keep some shad for the freezer, eventually using them as cut-bait for catching catfish and red drum. Read More
  • Fishful Thinking

    With the weather acting schizophrenically, I've used the cold days to do a lot of reorganizing, rigging and prep for the upcoming tournament season. I'll only fish a handful of events but I want to at least make it worth the time and effort. Trying to figure out, by reading maps, old notes and revisiting way points has me trying to "guess" where the fish will be. Read More
  • Freddy York - The Pedaling Pirate

    Let’s say you lived in the NY/NJ area and loved to kayak fish saltwater, but didn’t have anywhere to go fishing or anywhere to store your kayak. So you sell your kayak and after a while you begin to really miss it. What would you do? You would bicycle from your home to the Bahamas, right? “Yeah, that’s what I would….SAY WHAT?” Read More
  • Florida Anglers Strike Back for the Extreme Crown

    Not your average kayak folk competed last weekend in the nation’s exclusive Sailfish Smack Down 2015. This second-annual event brought sixty one anglers to Pompano Beach, FL from all over the US and Canada, and once again the tournament proved to be one of the best events for saltwater kayak anglers.  Read More
  • Fishing with Braid: My Line of Choice from a Kayak

    After seeing SpiderWire® advertised in 1994, I picked up a spool of Cabela’s “Ripcord” braid - a “super” line advertised as ‘stronger than steel’ - because SpiderWire® was just too ridiculously expensive. For monster Kenai River kings, this seemed like just the ticket. Read More
  • The Court Jester and Lee Van Cleef

    When I was very young, I remember both of my grandfathers taking me fishing. Sometimes it was on their boats, sometimes it was on the bank and sometimes in a float tube. I learned to catch perch, crappie, catfish, bass and carp. I learned different techniques, about different lures, how to cast different reels and how to watch a line. Read More

Stohlquist "Fisherman" PFD
 
5.0
"I’ve used the Stohlquist Fisherman PFD for over 2 years and have nothing but compliments about it. #1 it is comfortable, if a PFD is not comfortable you will not wear it. The Fisherman has a high back which allows me to sit comfortable in Jackson, Native, Hobie, and Wilderness framed seats. The sides and lower back are vented so you don’t feel like your roasting in an oven when wearing it on a hot summer day...."
Malibu "Mini X"
 
3.4
"I was lucky enough to borrow a Malibu Mini X for over a year from the owner of Kayak Fishing Radio Chip Gibson. Used in specific situations the Mini X excels, but I wouldn't recommend it if you fish large bodies of water frequently. The Malibu Mini X has many great features but is by no means a good “all around kayak”. Let’s start with what I like about the Malibu Mini X Light weight – The Malibu..."

"Finding our selves without kayaks at 7 pm Friday night, we were in a scramble. Adam and I needed to get our hands on some form of roto-molded flotation device to use on our last fishing day in Florida. We stopped by a small kayak shop in Largo but they didn't have any rentals left. Three calls to other shops “without naming names” ended in “Sorry but we can’t help you”. Our final stop was a..."
