Things That Go DRUM in the Night: Haulover Canal

Written by

It was one of those days you didn’t expect to be out on the water. I originally had plans to help my father work on some flooring, but after getting out of work later than expected I knew I wasn’t going to have enough light to see what we were doing. I thought, “What am I going to do on a Tuesday night?” Obvious answer: impromptu Haulover trip.

The Eleven Mile Redfish

Written by

We all have to agree that a great day is one that you’re on the water with your friends, enjoying the paddling, the wildlife, swamping stories, and the weather. This story is about a trip that I got the opportunity to take, as it was my turn to pick a location for my yak angler buddies and me to have a successful day on the water.

Fog, Beavers, Big Lizards and more Redfish

Written by

January has ended and February is here; before I know it I will be at the Boondoggle over in Merritt Island. I’m really looking forward to meeting so many of you from the YakAngler Nation, and getting some down time. After the last year and all of my medical issues, it will be great just fish and relax with folks that enjoy the same thing I do.

January Pine Island Kayak Fishing Report

Written by

Southwest Florida is riddled with great opportunities for kayak fishing. It’s very likely that you may fish a great area, and not revisit it for a while because there are so many more spots to go. That was recently the story of Pineland for me.

First Tampa Bay Kayak Fishing Trip Of 2013

Written by

I had made plans for another “Last Trip of 2012”, but high winds and the flu kept me off the water until the 12th of January. I called up Team Becker, and we made plans to meet up at the local park. Greeted with a low tide and a slight breeze, we launched in search of some redfish.

Morning fishing with a new friend

Written by

YakAngler member Dave (dfwagnerjr) from Kentucky came down to Florida recently on a short vacation. He told me he wanted to see what the Gulf had to offer, so we made plans for a morning trip to Estero Bay. I picked him up at the hotel and we drove along the beach to our launch.

A little morning fishing with my new friend Dave

Written by

YakAngler member Dave (dfwagnerjr) from Kentucky came down to Florida recently on a short vacation. He told me he wanted to see what the Gulf had to offer, so we made plans for a morning trip to Estero bay. I picked him up at the hotel and we drove along the beach to our launch.


We unloaded our gear in foggy conditions at Little Hickory Pass and I familiarized Dave with the Hobies. It was a little windy but otherwise a nice morning. We started the day with topwater lures and hit the flats. We worked mangroves and open flats and had no luck for the first hour or so. We ducked into some backwater creeks looking for redfish. Dave hooked up with a drag screamer and fought the fish in. It was the first of two nice jacks on topwater. I managed a small snook, and we moved on.

We travelled farther into Estero bay to some good redfish areas. Dave began using a DOA shrimp under the mangroves during the very slow rising tide. He worked the edges for a while, even seeing some redfish that just weren’t feeding. We were doing everything right, but the fish didn’t care.

On the way in, we tried one more area in a mangrove tunnel. Lots of mullet were hanging around, but none of the fish we were looking for. We caught a few fish but the reds eluded us. It was great meeting and fishing with a new friend even if he is from Kentucky!

Florida’s Space Coast

Written by

I had the very good fortune to spend a mid-December Sunday with fellow Malibu Kayaks Pro Staffer Capt. Alex Gorichky and his father in the famed “No Motor Zone”. Alex used to be employed by NASA in the solid rocket booster refurbishing facility, but was unfortunately laid off when the Space Shuttle program was terminated. He now runs Local Lines Guide Service, offering both kayak and power boat fishing charters...
