Florida Sportsman Member: abm5926 The past 2 days, I’ve hit up barrier islands in the Intracoastal Water Way in my kayak looking for reds and gator trout. Didn’t catch any real gators but got lots and lots of redfish all on topwater, z man paddlerz, and manic shrimp.
Fishing out of a kayak is quickly evolving as more and more people are getting into this great sport. The gear is keeping up with the pace of the industry’s growth, especially by a company called YakAttack out of Virginia, owned by Luther Cifers.
Where teamwork and paddle craft meet. Fly fishers see a picture of a drift boat and think Rocky Mountain river trout fishing. But lately there has been some talk among fly-fishing folk that the drift boat might be just right for Florida bass fishing, too.
Florida Sportsman member Poseidon10/31 shows the epic battle unfold from the view of his GoPro. Not only do you see the fight but see what you have to go through to get there, such as the ripping tide that can easily roll a kayak.
In order to receive points, anglers in the Florida Sportsman Kayak Challenge will have to know how to properly measure and photograph their catch. Using the right measuring device and technique will keep anglers from getting their photos disqualified.
