so as of recent events, a buddy of mine is letting me use a kayak. this kayak is a double seater and i will be using this kayak tomorrow. i will be launching off of pensacola beach close to the pier. general question would be what precautions do i need to take before hand? is there any good fishing and how far out? i will be doing so alone, so im not sure if i should go far out. any help/recommendations would be appreciated.

The first thing i recommend is not going alone! Especially since its your first time! But if u insist make sure you have your pfd and all the other safety equipment! And plz be careful! I would recommend staying in close!

I know it is supposed to be calm, but I would tie down EVERYTHING until you get through the breakers going out and coming back in, wear a life jacket and double bag your communication devices (VHF/cell phone).

Stay out of range of the pier fisherman - lol!

Seriously, they can hurl a mean lure at ya and those guys are accurate. If they miss, it is because it was a warning shot!

They are good guys, but possessive of their territory. Take care and stay safe!

I try to operate by these personal "rules" I learned the hard way...

1) wear pfd

2) if you open it, close it

3) if you untie it, tie it back

4) fish 1 line

5) everything has a place, if you move it, put it back

6) kayaks are not surf boards
