Florida inshore &
backwater kayak fishing

In Florida, most of the inshore and backwater kayak fishing is done with fly rods or light tackle using sight fishing techniques. Kayak fishing is addictive, extremely fun, and can be quite a challenge depending on the type of fish you catch. Sometimes the fish can be as large as your kayak.
