Bridge Fishing From A Kayak [VIDEO]
I just visited the Florida Keys down south and there are a TON of bridges connecting the small islands and over rivers that provide excellent opportunities at big fish.
You’ve just got to know where to start.
Anything from trophy mangrove snapper to tarpon to grouper are near these bridges.
These tactics will apply to bridge fishing from a kayak just about anywhere with some minor tweaks.
Before heading out to a bridge, know the current and know your skillset.
You do not want to get caught in a bad current and lose control of your vessel.
Look at the first third or the bottom third of the tide cycle first.
The middle of the tide will be the strongest point.
As far as bait goes, all you need is a few dozen frozen shrimp.
A size #1 or 1/0 bait hook will do the trick here.
You also will want to pick up some split-shot weights for this rig.
The minimalist approach is best for this type of fishing.
After you get yourself in position, cut the shrimp up into small little pieces.
We’re going to use this as chum to get the fish into feeding mode.
Take a handful of chummed shrimp and throw that out where you plan to cast.
Another overlooked spot when the bridges don’t work out is along the causeways leading into bridges.
There are mangroves, potholes, and other structure along the way fish will sit in.
Skipping lures beneath mangroves is one of my favorite ways to get bites next to causeways.
