Kayak Seminar Stage

*Schedule and speakers subject to change

Peter Hinck, also known as PalmBeachPete on the FS Forum, battles a kingfish off South Florida.

Learn the ABCs of the latest craze in stealth fishing — both inshore and offshore — where most other vessels simply cannot go. Techniques, special gear and proper kayaks are detailed so anyone can become a successful kayaker.

Kayak Stage with Peter Hinck:
Seminar times: 11a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.

Kayaks allow access to prime fishing waters off limits to larger craft while avoiding the nightmare of crowded boat ramps. The purchase and outfitting of a fishing kayak represents a fraction of the cost of traditional boating, especially in view of current fuel prices. Then there’s the stealth factor, as fish become ever more wary of trolling motors and hull slap. Throw in the cardiovascular exercise and it’s no surprise kayak fishing is the fastest growing segment in saltwater fishing.

Kayak manufacturers are responding with fleets of new kayak models and specialty craft for inshore and offshore fishing. Our local experts can guide you through the clutter in choosing a kayak if you’re a newcomer to the sport, and show you what accessories you need and what will just be in the way. This year Florida Sportsman’s Peter Hinck covers in-depth tactics of kayak fishing from inshore to offshore.

    I would like to take the opportunity to thank the Florida Sportsman Expos and the fantastic seminar at the "Kayak Stage". I asked many questions tapping the pro's brain. Thanks Again, very informative and knowledgeable.

    I was also the lucky winner on Oct. 2012 – Sunday of a 40" LCD TV and it works great hooked up to my PC also.

    Everyone who is into Fishing should attend the next time the Expo comes around.
