Kayak Fishing Report: Sept. 2014


[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he weather is cooling off and making it much nicer to be out on the water. Reds and flounder are still falling for soft plastics slow rolled and bounced off the bottom. We are using saltwater assassins chicken on a chain or anything with a chartreuse tail in the stained water. In clearer water move to a more natural color like the silver mullet and try to choose a color to match the bait is in the area you are fishing. Good trout are still hitting top water at all times of the day. My plug of choice lately has been the top dog jr. in the prism shiner color. I am finding it matches the splashing schools of pogies.

Kayaks are light, easy to travel with, and you can launch almost any where so don’t be afraid to get out of the norm and check out some new areas. Centrally located in the Gulf we are a short drive in any direction to some great fishing. On any given weekend you can find me somewhere on the water between Florida and Louisiana.

The 19th -20th of this month in Panama City, Fl. Half Hitch Tackle is putting on the Battle for the Kayaks tournament. There will be a total of 6 kayaks being given away between the inshore and offshore divisions. For more information or to register go to www.halfhitch.com/activities/kayaking. Remember while fishing from a kayak to always think safety. We are low to the water and not always easily seen. Keep a 360 degree light on at dark and low light conditions, wear a PFD, keep hydrated, and let someone know your float plan.
