Kayak fishing locations

Looking for a new spot this weekend, I’ve fished plenty at the lighthouse, does anyone have a suggestion/opinion for a creek/location from Spring Warrior to St Marks? Thinking of trying out Big Spring Creek, looks fishy. Always looking for a nice remote launch I haven’t heard of, don’t mind putting ...

Re: East River

That is not one of the places I would put in at low tide, especially if it is forecasted to be a more extreme tide. If you put in at the spillway using the small trail that leads to the water, you will not be able to get to the water, it’s just knee deep muck and rocks. If you have the time and the ...

Re: Lake Lafayette and Lake Jackson

I put in at Road To The Lake ramp tonight, it’s horribly overgrown. There is literally no where to fish, paddled over vegetation the entire time. I lost count of how many gators I saw once I put my head lamp on coming back, they’re always around, but still. Guess I’m just trying to warn anyone who i...

Re: donating rods/reels

I know Bass Pro has a yearly spring event where they take old rods and reels, restore and donate them to kids, and give you a coupon towards the purchase of a new rod/reel. Otherwise maybe contact FWC, they may have a program.
