Kayak FAQ

I see you have 2 guides, which one will be guiding me?    

This is entirely up to you.  Both Micha and Drew are equally certified and equally capable of providing you with a fantastic adventure. 

    

Where will we be fishing exactly?    

For flats fishing, We’ll be fishing someplace between Sebastian and Ft. Pierce.  If you have a preference of the North or South, we’ll try to keep to that area.  We are in touch with other anglers on a daily basis and on the water nearly every day.  We’re going to let the reports and weather decide our exact waters. A boat can pick up and travel several miles to ‘look’ for fish.  We’ve got to concentrate our efforts in knowing where to go, before we go. Ya know?

Can I use my own kayak or my own fishing equipment?  

Of course.  If you have a new kayak and are looking for help with rigging, or if you are just more comfortable in your own boat, bring it on.  Same thing with gear--bring your favorite rods along.  Please don’t forget to mention your wishes when you book your trip.  Because our kayaks are rigged up specifically for fishing, with the equipment and rigging we are accustomed to, it might pose an additional challenge with our guiding, therefore we don’t offer a discount for using your own equipment.

Do you offer discounts?  

Sure.  If you are active or retired military, show your ID.  Thank you for your service and take 10% off.

If you are a lady angler, or if you want to get your wife or girlfriend into kayak fishing, we love to see ladies getting involved.  Take 10% off.  

Boy Scouts or Girl Scouts also take 10% off.  Drew can also sign off for your fishing or paddle craft badges.  One discount per trip.

So, what exactly do I need to bring?    

Because kayaking is done in separate boats, the Florida Wildlife Commission requires each angler to have a fishing license.  Yes, it’s different for boat guides--because everyone is in the same boat.  So you’ll need a Saltwater Fishing License.  Which you can purchase HERE.  You are not required to purchase a snook stamp, but if you wish to try to keep a snook, you’ll need the stamp.

We’ll discuss what clothing is appropriate for the weather for your trip, but think of kayak fishing sort of like camping or hiking.   Keep warm when it’s cool, and keep covered in the sun.  We typically wear long sleeves all the time--keeps the sun off, keeps the bugs off and can keep the chill down. 

We also prefer our anglers to wear shoes, as opposed to sandals or flip flops.  You don’t have to wear them all day, but should we get in a position where we have to get out of the kayak, shoes offer more protection than flops. We do have oyster bars, barnacles and stingrays.

Do you guarantee we’ll catch fish?    

If fishing were a guaranteed ‘catch’, I’d be the winningest angler in tournament history.  

What we can guarantee is an outstanding trip, memories you will treasure, entertainment you will cherish, tips and tricks and techniques you can keep for a lifetime and somewhere in there, you might catch a few fish and maybe even the fish of a lifetime.  Understand that kayak angling is about the adventure, the experience and enjoying the day at a different pace. If you are most interested in how many fish you catch, you might want to look at a regular ol’ boat trip.
