Florida Sportsman Member: davederb We took a break out near Pelican Island, when on the way back to our launch point, my live bait rod starts screaming. He immediately starts yelling shark, we were pleasantly surprised as this is my biggest snook yet from a kayak which measured 37 inches.
The 3rd annual Florida Sportsman Kayak Challenge is finally over. There were 110 anglers from around the state, fishing in two divisions, during this two-month marathon tournament.
My dad recently came to visit Florida from Pennsylvania, where I was born and semi-raised before we moved to Maine. We packed in a ton of fishing within the four days he was here, including inshore and offshore; dolphin, snook, trout, snapper, pompano and more were on the catch list.
It has been a banner year for kayak and fishing gear manufacturers. Tons of new products have been hitting store shelves all over the country. Let’s face it, kayakers can be a cheap bunch, but we are always interested in quality products and want more bang for our buck. Many of these new products revealed at ICAST 2014 seem to fit the bill.
Bob Bramblet and Rob DeVore have released “Bass on the Road 2,” a sequel to the short film that chronicled the adventures of kayak anglers on a weeklong fishing road trip across four states.
