Offshore Kayak Fishing

Kayak fishing has become one of the fastest growing sports in the past several years. I started my adventure in 2009 and have never looked back. I purchased my first kayak to fish inshore for Trout, Redfish, and Bass. In 2010, after meeting several people who had the same love for kayak fishing as I did, we decided to take it to the extreme and go offshore. I had no idea what to expect or how to even prepare for this new journey in kayak fishing. After a few trips in the Gulf of Mexico catching King Mackerel, Snapper, and even Grouper, I was hooked.Jun 1st, 2014
