Kayak Fishing Ultimate Resource

The Second Annual Susquehanna Flats Kayak Fishing Jamboree is now in the books! This year was not quite as stellar weather or fish wise as 2012, unless you consider tornado watches stellar weather! Conditions were a little tough - especially for the folks in tents - but a good time was had by all!

Shady Bass In Cold Water

Wake up this morning and it’s a cold 35 degrees. For the past couple week’s central Louisiana has been dealing with these cold temps at night but it is warming up into mid 70’s during the day; you know the yak is already loaded in the back of the truck. My eagerness always starts the night before a trip so in turn everything is already loaded. All I need to do is get in the truck and go.

“Crossover” Lures: Freshwater to Saltwater

A recent discussion in the forums about the new Live Target Herring got me thinking about how some freshwater lures have made a transition to the saltwater world. While this lure says it’s made for saltwater, it was originally targeted for freshwater fisherman.

The Rain Factor

Have you ever been bewildered by not finding fish where they should be, only to realize later, with a resounding “Duh!” where you went wrong?

The second part of "How to Kayak Fish the Oregon Coast" brings us to Depoe Bay.  DB, as the locals call it, is a small hole cut out of the cliffs, making it the world's smallest navigable harbor. Because DB is so small, and there’s no river feeding into the harbor, it’s easy to drop in a kayak at the $2 boat launch, head through the 50’ x 300’ “hole” and find yourself in the Pacific Ocean without even thinking of dealing with a surf launch. But then the question hits you – How do I fish this place?

Kayak Fishing the Oregon Coast pt. 1

Let me introduce you to the Oregon Coast. This had begun as a tutorial on a specific fishing area, but has quickly expanded. This first part is focusing on the gear that we use here in the PacNW when bottom fishing on the coast.  We’re going to be targeting Rockfish, Lingcod, Cabezon and Greenling.  Bottom fishing on the Oregon Coast is an excellent, often fast paced fishery. So let’s get started with the tackle.

Livin’ On The Edge

Finding fish is one of the most important skills you can have in order to be a successful fisherman. It doesn’t really matter what sort of lure, fly, or bait that you use. If you aren’t on fish, you aren’t going to catch any.

It also is helpful if you know a bit about fish behavior. Understanding fish biology and how water temperature, conditions and tides affect where they live, where you can find them, and what they feed on.

Mid Atlantic Report 08-20-10

Forrest Short said kayak fishermen who fished this past week in the Chesapeake Bay, the James or the York River were greeted with a heavy dose of Red Tide. That being said, saltwater fishing was very slow, with only a few reports of small croakers and flounder caught. However, on the freshwater side, things could not have been more productive.

Spring Is Here!!

Oh thank the good Lord that Spring is here from the Carolina's to the Florida keys.. After a long Winter we can now look forward to Spring, and that means better fishing. As the water and the fish start to warm up the bite gets better by the day. Everything from Redfish in the back country to Tripletail off the beach, the bait shows up in big numbers up and down the coast triggering a non stop feeding frenzy. This is by far the most exciting time of the year to be a YakAngler, the weather gives us days at a time of five knots and less of wind and smooth backwaters as well as the opportunity to launch your Yak from the beach and paddle out past the breakers.
