Thumbs up Hittin' the road...

Heading down to the Keys on Thursday for a week of kayaking, fishing, eating, swimming, snorkeling and mojito sampling...YAAAY! If you spot Team Seabean rollin' along the Overseas Highway, wave!

For those of you already out there, enjoy and be safe.

Where do you kayak there and do you fish from the kayak? I just got into kayaking last year and want to do some fishing; especially saltwater fishing from the kayak.

We make our camp at Long Key State Park (the middle Keys). I fish from a Hobie Odyssey yak using two rods...one set up for top water artificials and the other for live baits. The flats on both the Atlantic and Gulf sides yield red fish, trout, snook and snappers...not to mention the occasional bonnet head...anywhere around the mangroves in the Keys will be productive...Back at home in central Florida I fish from the yak in the Mosquito Lagoon (over by Cape Canaveral) and on all our local rivers and lakes. We keep a sailboat over in the St. Petersburg area (Gulfport) and I fish the flats around Boca Ciega Bay or load the yak onto the mothership and then visit all the great spots which are easily accessible around Tampa Bay. The yak will allow you to get into thin water and places motorized vessels can't or won't go...it's an amazing way to experience the wonders of nature. Try it...you'll love it!!!

P.S. If you're curious about how to set up your yak for fishing, check out Zoffinger's channel on You Tube...he does a great job of illustrating how to customize a yak to fit your specific needs.
