Kayak & Paddle Board Fishing [St. Petersburg Fishing Report]
Fishing via kayaks and paddle boards is such a fun and rewarding way to enjoy the outdoors.
Not only does “paddle board fishing” allow you to immerse yourself in nature’s surroundings without the distractions high-tech gadgetry…
But paddle fishing also is a fantastic way to catch quality inshore fish because they can enable you to sneak up your prey given the small size and their ability to get you around very quietly.
And an added bonus is that they provide a great workout too… so gym time can be combined with outdoor time.
But one issue that it rampant in the kayak and paddle board fishing scene is the lack of exploration among many who do it.
Many anglers who have a kayak seem to always go back to the same spot over and over again because that is where they are most comfortable and they believe that is where the most fish can be caught.
So I’m posting this fishing report to show an exploration trip I recently went on in St. Petersburg, FL.
This report will show that having local knowledge of an area is not a requirement to catch fish… even for a brief trip totaling less than 3 hours.
And this video includes specific details on the launch area in the event that you want to try this spot in particular or if you can find similar locations near you.
You will also see what lures we used and some of the fish we caught that afternoon.
St. Petersburg, FL Fishing Report
On March 31st, I met with a Salt Strong Plus member named Chris Edwards for an exploration trip to see if we could find some feeding fish in St. Petersburg, FL.
This particular morning was a bit chilly, and the wind ended up being much stronger than forecasted.
But we managed to find some good fish and created some fun memories… especially the snook that had to be hand-lined out of the mangroves while trying to balance on the paddle board.
The strategies for finding fish in a brand new area are all covered in detail in our Inshore Slammer online course.
In it, you’ll learn how to use free online maps along with easy to get data like tides and weather to consistently catch quality redfish, snook, and trout… all without even needing live bait.

Fishing from kayaks and paddle boards can be an incredibly rewarding experience because they allow you to get immersed with your surroundings.
And an added bonus is that they are much easier to transport and use compared to a boat which requires more equipment and cleanup.
Best of all, they can be incredible fish catching machines for anglers who know how to find fish and present the right lure to them the right way.
