Kayaking our Area
The Florida panhandle has got to be one of the premier places in the entire country for taking to the water in a kayak. Kayaking here offers plenty of opportunity for not only fishing from your kayak but also all kinds of places where you can just enjoy a day paddling around on the water. St Andrews Bay along with adjacent inlets and bayous provide numerous easy access launch points to get started. Other nearby paddling choices can include day long adventures to explore our many natural springs and rivers. Less than an hour from Florida Watersports you can get to Ecofina Creek or Holmes Creek which are popular destinations on a hot day. As we get new articles up on our Blog, this is where you will find info on where to go whether for pleasure or a day of fishing.
Kayak Fishing Panama City Beach if you are new to it, offers one of the best ways to enjoy our local inshore waters and if you are more adventurous to head into the Gulf just off the beach to target such species as King Mackerel, Spanish Mackerel, or Bottom Fish. Inshore fishing offers countless places to fish the flats for Redfish, Spotted Trout, Mangrove Snapper, Flounder, Sheepshead, and other species. You will find out fairly quickly you have the ability in a kayak to access many areas that you just can’t get to in a boat or attempt to wade to. Kayak Fishing is also a unique fishing experience which is most likely why it’s fast becoming one of the more popular ways to fish. Hooking a big one can be one of the more challenging aspects to the sport… once you have done that and successfully brought it in you will be hooked!
