Hey all.... I am a passionate paddler and kayak fisherman. I love it so much I started my own Kayak Fishing shop. I am in no way on here to promote my shop, so I won't say the name unless someone wants to really know. Just wanted to see and meet others who love the sport just as much as I do or are interested in it. Just got back from sponsoring a Mothership kayak fishing trip out to San Clemete Islands. Check out a few pics on my page. More to come...

I have been fishing out of a kayak for years,a few years ago I couldn't get any of my charters to get out of the big boat and kayak. Now I have people requesting kayak charters. They are just starting to finding out now what we knew for years!!

Malibu is good. So is hobie, ocean, wildnerness systems, heritage. Just need to try them out and see what you like.

Sounds like you will be fishing Texas bays? Might want a GPS, also scotty rod holders, life jacket, kayak light, maybe a milk crate with some extra rod holders attached. An anchor too...I would go with a stick type that you can jam into the ground.

Of course, a lightweight two piece paddle.

That should get you started, so much more to specialize if you want. I'd say go find some fishing spots before you get too invested. Tight lines.

Hi everyone! I am about to join the ranks of Yak'ers out there on the Texas Gulf Coast! I think I've narrowed my choice of kayak to the Malibu Kayak brand, mostly because they come pre-outfitted, saving me some time so I can get out there.

But would love to hear some alternative opinions and ideas!

I'm an East coaster, so I barely know the west coast. But I've heard just walking the beaches around Sanibel and sight fishing can produce monster snook, especially in the summer around June.

Hitting the flats in the gulf coast...we have been having good days all winter long. The summer should be amazing. Anyone ever hit sanibel and captiva? I am heading there for a week in mid June.

Great to hear... you guys have some wild ways to fish over there I've heard. Kelp beds; deep,cold water, and plenty of rocks.
