Navarre Beach Kayak King Fishing Article

Navarre Beach Kayak King Fishing Article



Joe Richard, a long time fisherman and nature/sports photographer, has a great article in the July TIDE magazine for the CCA.

Met Joe and his wife Amy this summer. He had called and said he was coming from Gainesville to take pictures for an article on Kayak king fishing. He wanted to rent one of our double fishing kayaks to get out in the gulf and hopefully catch some Kings.
The day ended up being too rough to go out but he did get a lot of info for his story.

I tried to reprint the article but couldn’t, so below is a link with some pictures from the Navarre area and fishing tips from our own Kevin Maye

Joe and Amy did make it back later in the year and got out on the Gulf for some King fishing. Here is a pic of them surfing in after a morning of fishing. Big Fun !! Keep that kayak straight people!!

I am an avid kayak fishing peorsn and as the poster above said, get a kayak equipt with rod holders for fishing. You will also need an anchor. If fresh water fishing, I suggest a mushroom type anchor and if saltwater fishing, get a bruce claw anchor. In addition to your rod and reel, you’ll need a kayak paddle, a stringer, a bait bucket (if using live bait) and a net. I also use a paddle leash and rod floats, not leashes. Rod leashes are in the way. Not essencial but I strap a crate in the back well of my kayak to put my tackle and other stuff in. I also used PVC to make extra rod holders on the crate. This is used to secure my net and bruce claw anchor. The milk type crate just keeps my stuff drier than just sitting in water.You are required to have a fishing license, a life jacket, and a signaling device, such as a whistle or air horn. If you ever fish when the sun is not up either in the morning or at night, you will need a 360 degree light.
