    So I asked you guys for help finding a boat trailer I could used as a platform to build a trailer for my 6 kayaks. You guys delivered and Saturday I brought my new project home. It is going to need a little bit of work, but for a 44yo trailer, its in great condition. I spent an hour or so...

    Just want to thank all of the PFFers, especially kayak fishermen, who've put a ton of good info out and taken time out of their days over the years to help out people new to fishing, the area, or targeting certain species. It's been a blast fishing here the last three and half years and going...

    H-MANEOD and I woke up with plans to troll nearshore, unfortunately the surf and wind forecast changed for the worse overnight so we launched at Joe's Bayou instead. In the first ten minutes I had a flounder spit the hook and what felt like a slot red cut my mainline by going around two dock...

    Good day everyone. I am fairly new to kayak fishing in the Panama City area. I have tried scouring the internet to try and find some local fishing clubs here in PC. Unfortunately I have had no luck. Does anyone know of any clubs or groups of yakkers that I can go fishing with? I'm tired of...
  5. Kayaking Reports
    Launched at sunrise with a couple friends to minimal surf, nasty green water and 10+mph North winds. Between the three of us over an hour we caught one bait fish sabiki'ing. We decided it was too windy to try holding over bottom spots and trolled artificials and frozen cigs from 2nd sand bar...

    I plan on fishing the Escambia River, Perdido River, and Simpson River areas in my new kayak. What would be a good length for my anchor line? I've seen people use stake poles instead of an anchor, but those seem to only be useful in shallow water.

    Navarre Fishing Rodeo 2016 Hello fellow anglers! I just wanted to take the time to thank (again) everyone who came out last year for the fishing rodeo. It was a massive success all-around; and we are hoping to make it even bigger and better this year for our participants. As many of you might...
  8. Kayaking Reports
    Launched from Henderson in the afternoon. Winds picked up and it got a bit choppy, didn't get soaked, but got pushed almost a mile further east than I intended. Hooked up with 2 mahi for sure, probably a third but can't be sure. Landed one 27" fork, and one king about the same and couple dink...

    I am considering an inflatable kayak because I do not have a pickup truck and do not wish to get a trailer. I might consider putting a hard side on top of my van. So, I would like your views on an inflatable vs. a hard side (must be light weight). I guess any foot/leg propelled hard side...

    I alaways wanted to fish off a kayak but don't have one. But the first thing that comes to mind when I think of this is a big ol fish coming taking my bait and pulling me along with it. I'm not afraid of this actually I think it would be fun and a great story. I was just wondering if it has...

    Taking advantage of some leave days and my wife and I went to Rocky Bayou for some paddling. Figured it'd be a good place with smaller beginner friendly fish and my goal was to try getting her first kayak fish. Had a blast in the couple hours we were out. SW winds 5-10, not too choppy. Bait...
  13. Kayaking Reports
    This was an awesome trip, also was round 4 in my search for the first kings of the season. (Couldn't participate in the tourney unfortunately.) Launched from Destin into the Gulf around 615am with HManEOD for some trolling and we planned on hitting the Miss Louise. Bait was around and easy to...

    Still didn't find any... but I must be doing something right! Launched out of Henderson State Park at 0645. Surf was a little big, but very clean and easy to time going through the breakers. North winds helped a lot. Barely found a few cigar minnows out around 30' then pushed out to deeper...

    I'm looking to get out on the water in the yak either this weekend, or next weekend. Is anything biting this late in the season? If so, what is fun to catch and how would you suggest catching it?

    My son and I have been out consistently, we bought our first Yaks six weeks ago and have been out multiple times(Spooky Ln Beach Access in Santa Rosa Beach) and we have yet to catch anything other than Kingfish and a Spanish Mackerel. We have gone out to about 1/2 mile and are fishing with...

    Shark Tank or Kick Starter? Hey the Youtube link shows a truck bed extender for supporting a Kayak Support or other long load. I've been working on this for 4 years (and counting). I've put a lot of money in it. I believe it is one of a kind. Question is . . . Could this be the next big...

    I caught a couple gags (one at 29" and one at 21 boooo) this weekend in the lagoon (from the beach). Some other guys came by in kayaks and caught quite a few nice snapper yesterday. I didn't take a pic of the 21" before I released it, but I will get on my phone to post a pic of the 29".
