Fishing the Estuaries

One of my favorite places to fish is in the estuaries, also known as the mangroves. There you can troll, bait cast or use a spinning rod and reel. For me it is the fly rod. The estuaries are the nurseries of the sea. Very high percentages of fish hatch there and spend a good part of their life there. Some never leave. This makes fishing good there all year round. The mangroves of the Mexican Pacific coast have about 800 square miles of this vegetation.

On Golden Pond: Squam Lake New Hampshire

Squam Lake is smack dab in the middle of New Hampshire just a few miles Northwest of Lake Winnipesaukee.

Other species include: cusk, horned pout, (bullheads) and landlocked salmon.

Survival kits in life rafts aboard warplanes and ships contained a package of fishing line and leadheaded bucktails.

Say Cheese: Taking Quality Photos from Your Kayak

As far as I can tell, there isn’t an Angler that does not love to show off their trophy catches. Over the last decade sharing your photos has become increasingly easier and an integral part of most fishing trips. In my experience, this trend has advanced quicker and been mastered by the kayak fishing community.

Cocodrie, Louisiana—Kayak Fishing Paradise

The fishing, shrimping and crabbing village of Cocodrie is located where LA Highway 56 abruptly ends deep in the heart of Louisiana's fabled saltwater marsh. Mention the word Cocodrie to any saltwater fish-chasing Louisiana native and you'll likely get that faraway look of desire that comes from knowing that even in a marsh habitat as massive as Louisiana—this is one very special place to go fishing.
