I love hunting red fish in shallow, sight fishing is addicting, and fishing from my Hobie pro angler kayak is an experience like no other.There's just something so special about kayak fishing I feel everyone should experience for themselves. Kayaks fishing puts you at eye level with the fish, face to face with the redfish, you actually learn a lot about redfish from being that close to them. You have to become a marsh ninja in Louisiana when enter the shallow grass flats and very shallow (duck) ponds, stealth is the key factor as to avoid spooking tail reds flat stalking bull reds. As you can tell I only target redfish, I love them they truly are very tough, hardy fish (survivors). they're beautiful and powerful as a mule which is why back home we sometimes call them marsh donkeys. I work a 14 & 14 rotation offshore in the Gulf of Mexico...its hard to not think about fishing when I'm away especially on rough days I will sit and watch some of my own videos. I use to be a pretty depressed person working all the time until I started fishing again from a kayak. I don't think anyone ever noticed how depressed I was before I started fishing again a year and a half ago, work all the time, and then it happen I tore the main tendon in the bottom of my foot connected to my great toe...it retracted so bad my doctor had to split the tendon connected to my other smaller toe and route and connect it to my great toe. So there I was 17 stitches in my foot a cut from the tip of my great toe all the way to my heel, I was out of work for almost 3 months no paycheck no nothing, yeah I think its safe to say that would have depress just about anyone. What got me through this rough patch was my wife, my dogs especially my lab Duke, LSU football and watching videos of kayak fishing thinking I've got to get better so I could try this new to me thing call sight fishing and do it from a kayak. So here I'am almost 2 years after my surgery, I've been kayak fish for a year and a half, through Luke and Joe even though I've never met them I consider them great friends, I've vastly improved at catching redfish, I can truly say I'm a very happy guy, so much so that I rarely ever drink, fishing is my drug ha ha. I've made a bunch of friends through the kayak fishing community, truly a band of brothers. If anyone ever comes down my way and they're looking to do some kayak fish email me jacobc0207@gmail.com. Well until next time live salt strong, tight lines and god bless.
