Sponsored Angler Paddle-In

Sponsored anglers from various different manufactures showed up bright and early on the St. Pete side of the Gandy Bridge for the first of many events hosted by Paddle-Fishing.com.  Anglers from Malibu, Emotion, Wilderness, Hobie and Mohawk Canoes brought several of their respective company’s kayaks and canoes for those wishing to try different models.
I have been sponsored by Malibu Kayaks for just over a year now, so I brought out three of the most popular models, the Stealth 12, the Stealth 14 and the X-13.

For some, like Scott, it was their first trip out in a kayak. Here he is taking his brand new Stealth 12 out on its maiden voyage, accompanied by his daughter.



Others were there trying to decide which model might fit them best. Kelly couldn’t decide on the Stealth 12 or 14.



Paddle-Ins are designed to bring together kayak anglers from all over to share a day on the water, usually starting out with a little fishing in the morning, then it’s back to the beach for some lunch and fellowship. Today was no different.

Look for more of these Paddle-Ins in the future as well as the longest running kayak tournament series in the bay area, the PFTS (Paddle-Fishing Tournament Series) this year promises to be the biggest and best yet.
