Offshore Kayak Fishing

Offshore Kayak Fishing | Navarre Kayak Fishing

Anglers enjoy Offshore Kayak Fishing all over the world and for good reason, it’s exciting and you never know what you might hook.

(Let’s take a second and make one thing clear, wear your lifejacket!)

However, Offshore Kayak Fishing has its dangers and every year a new group of inexperienced anglers attempt to launch kayaks into the surf.

They lack experience and the lack of experience leads to costly mistakes.

(We will get to the good stuff but lets take a few minutes and make sure you know it’s not all fun and games.)

Mistakes…

  • They fail to check the radar.
  • They fail to check the wind.
  • They fail to check the tides.
  • They fail to check the surf report.
  • They aren’t familiar with their kayaks.
  • They have never attempted a deep water re-entry.
  • They forget paddles and life jackets.

We spend the majority of our summer launching kayaks into the Gulf of Mexico and we see these mistakes every morning. (That list is short, we could continue) We delay Offshore Kayak Fishing Charters to help strangers launch and our clients look in amazement as people fail over and over again.

Launching

Every coastline has its own set of challenges. The surf forecast changes daily and can be monitored at https://magicseaweed.com/Navarre-Beach-Surf-Report/651/.

It’s important to realize that the wind and tides will manipulate what the surf is doing. In Navarre, a strong North wind will lay down the surf but it will blow you way off of the beach. A strong South wind will quickly turn the 1′ waves into 4′ of crashing white water.

Fishing

Offshore Kayak Fishing opens the door to endless possibilities. While trolling you can run into everything from King Mackerel to Sailfish. When you’re bottom fishing you can catch a ton of different reef species, such as Red Snapper, Triggerfish, and even Gag Grouper.

If you’re looking to target Red Snapper check out Kayak Fishing For Red Snapper.

Landing

Launching is easy but landing can go sideways very quickly. More often than not, the winds will increase throughout the day. As the SE wind increases the surf will become rather sloppy along the beaches from Destin – Pensacola. Ideally, you’re on the beach before conditions get out of hand. If you’re not, slow and steady if the best approach.

If conditions are really bad, we recommend getting out of the kayak and holding onto the rear. The waves will push you into the beach and prevent you from rolling in the surf.

Pick Your Days

Offshore Kayak Fishing is a blast and the majority of coastal kayak anglers look forward to it every year. However, if the weathers bad you should play it safe and stick to fishing the protective waterways. There will always be another day!
