    I ain’t going out on the ocean with a kayak, I stick in the Indian River Lagoon (east central Florida), and use anything from live shrimp or mullet to gulps or anything else rigged weedless. As for what I’m catching…. redfish, trout, the infamous Indian River Lagoon pufferfish…. don’t have the balls to take it out to the port, but out there, there’s all kinds of good stuff, flounder, jacks, pompano……….. we get just about any fish you can find in coastal waters along eastern Florida, maybe not the same sizes as you’re gonna get if you catch it in the ocean, but still, the same fish.

    I like to ocean fish in Southern California or rather that’s where I live. Fishing is better down in Baja or in N. Calif. Kayak fishing works pretty well ’cause you can launch in places other boats can’t. The down side is paddling and handling fishing gear. It’s not really very hard. Bait and lures work well. Haven’t caught anything very large but others claim to have in this area. A kayak is certainly cheaper than any other sort of boat and probably more seaworthy than most. But get some experience kayaking before setting out alone.
