Welcome to Fla..... :beer: :welcome:

What fish are you most interested in catching? Saltwater or Freshwater?

Welcome to the forums.

I see you're in Jax as well.... Let me know what you're interested in catching and I'm pretty sure I can point you in the right directions. I would consider myself a much better angler than I am hunter, and I spend a lot of time on the water chasing reds.

Im interested in both freshwater and saltwater, but currently my boat is still in VA so I am limited to a kayak. Can you get to any reds from the yak??

You can absolutely get into the reds in a yak... Every honey hole of mine is accessible by yak... although some may have a slight paddle.

Check out Jaxkayakfishing.com, you will find tons of info.

Some good launches for yaks: Oak Harbor, Castaway Island, Dutton Island, or Guana. Guana has some really nice reds in it, and some monster trout and flounder.

Awesome thanks for the help guys. It's just a basic sit in kayak but I might sell and upgrade here soon. If anybody needs a paddle buddy or wants someone to help launch your boat feel free to hit me up :lol3:
