Really enjoy watching your channel i usually hit the thumbs up before i watch it. I wanna really get into kayak fishing but im a big guy 6ft 4 so i have been finding trouble getting a yak that would suit me. Hobie Outback is my dream kayak but to expensive for me but the Pelican catch 120 really looks nice pretty sure it's the 120 want to use it to catch stripers in saltwater amd i wanna use it for freshwater fishing to. I always look out for giveaways but these kayak makes nowadays are only hooking up big youtubers or pros lol guess that excludes me lol. Have a good day and stay safe Jimmy from North Attleboro Massachusetts was Massachusetts

sad, it feels like all the fish are gone at skyway. like its completely fished out. its almost not worth the 10$ anymore. they should close it for a bit.

I used to DESTROY mangrove snapper, Sheepshead and even Hogfish under the main supports of that bridge. It's surrounded in massive rocks that have large natural caves. And near one of those support is a very large found Boulder that holds all kind of fish. Not sure if the rules have changes as far as getting close to that area, but the main supports is insanely fishy. I have got 3+lb Snapper off it to the limit I can harvest.

There is a small channel in width right near where you launched ( about 25 feet away and 60 feet out) that has drops from 3 feet deep to near 12 feet (ledge). You should see it on your finder easy. For what ever reason, I have been landing Lane Snapper here if you want to give it a go.

dude that looks like a REALLY nice kayak! Sit in or on top? What kind of kayak is it?vI'm looking to get into the kayak fishing craze. I live here in st.pete fl so there are tons of places to use it for fishing....it looks fun and i love the fact that you can go places boats can't! Also, what kind of fish finder and other accessories do you recommend for kayak fishing? Does it have a place to keep the fish you catch? Rod holders? Place for a cooler or some sort? Please any information would help..looking to buy one locally within the next month or 2. Also do you know of any places around here (st pete/clearwater/tampa) to purchase one that is nice but not TOO pricy?

Have you gotten back to this spot since this video? My brother and I sat in about 9 feet of water near the channel right after the 22 straight days of rain of July/August 2015 and slayed the mackerel.

I haven't been back there yet. There's just too many spots to fish closer to where I live. Shame, though because there are some monster fish hanging around that bridge.

I have already learnt a lot from watching your kayak fishing... . Besides, it's very relaxing videos...... . Thank you so much!!!

Do you plan on putting pontoons for stability on your "movin on up man's"  Kayak. Probably could have gotten you closer to the bridge.

i spent 10 years in florida but for some reason moved back to arkansas. the upside there are plenty of nice lakes and a few rivers that a yak would be perfect on. i talked to a close friend in tampa and he convinceds me to save for a hobie over the feelfree 13.5. he also told me to check out your videos. after seeing some of them i'm now in even more distress, i cant decide which to get. but your poor mans kayak rigging vids had some really good stuff that i can use regardless of which one i get. thanks for the videos. tight lines

Excellent video! I accidentally found your channel but I'm glad that I did. I have a Hobie Pro Angler but haven't launched it because none of the other yakkers that I kayak with have peddle kayaks. But now I don't care I'm going to launch her and fish the waters around Florida. Maybe they will upgrade!

zoffinger - 7 years ago
+Justin Felix This is the Hobie Pro Angler 12. I really had my eyes on a Native Propel Slayer 10 also, but the retailer I went to said that Hobie outsold Native 100 to 1. He also said the fins were better in very shallow water vs. the propeller type propulsion.I figured I'd listen to the expert. So, far I really love the Hobie. But, I never did try out that sweet Native yak, so take my advice with a grain of salt.

I noticed you are using a ugly stick rod with small guides usually used for baitcaster reels but you have a spinning reel mounted on it. Is there a reason for that? Normally rods meant for spinning reels have larger diameter guides close to the reel but then get smaller as you approach the tip of the rod.
zoffinger - 7 years ago
+Zeke A I'm just a dope who didn't know the difference when I bought the rod. I even cut off the little trigger that kept getting in my way with my grinder. haha, I aint kidding. I buy spinning rods exclusively now.

When tarpon run through their they stay in the shallows so if you trolled with a mullet, or anchor up by them you could get your sliver king that got away last time.

The rock piles by the bridge hold a bunch of small and a few keeper mangroves and the occasional behemoth grouper, but usually you have to fight for a spot out there on weekends. Fishing around the Skyway is never a bad day.

I enjoyed watching. I've been wanting to take my hobie down there for awhile. Looks like you found a great spot to put in. Your catches that day are a lot like mine most of the time: pinfish, catfish, ladyfish. All you needed to round out the garbage slam was a lizard fish! At least you went home with a nice trout! Thanks for sharing your experience!! Looking forward to seeing more.

Me and my buddy go to pensacola every November to fish.
Last time I caught a barely slot red (great fight) and he caught a couple specks.
We ate them that night and I was surprised to learn that I like specks more than redfish!

Haha, everyone dislikes Catfish.
I wonder if saltwater Catfish taste better ...
DoughboyJonesmk2 - 7 years ago
I practically lived on saltwater catfish when I lived in FL (since that's what I always caught the most of). I don't know where the stigma comes from, I thought they were fine eating and without the mushy texture of freshwater cats.

Nice peaceful trip, real fishing and good narration.  You have a good voice and style that brings people along with you.  "We" didn't catch a lot but it was the real thing.  Let's try again.  Oh yeah, I was happy to hear you say "you have to know your limits".  When you got that kayak I was a little worried that you might go out farther than was wise since you had that mirage drive.  I saw a video of that exact kayak flip over in an instant.  The guy got caught in a fast moving squall during a nice day, caught a wave from behind and flipped.  Lost all his gear.

Back when I lived in Tampa, i stuck to the flats in the bay. Was paddling a site inside Dagger at the time so getting back in the boat after a flip would have been a serious problem. We fished from the pier a lot though. The conditions got a little rough sometimes. Have you ever gone out to the skyway in the deeper water? I thought about yak fishing there a lot though... thanks for posting this vid!

I hooked something ridiculous down over the summer, on the bay side of the bridge, and lost it. It was strong enough to pull me around the boat, and then pull the 25ft boat hundreds of feet before the barrel swivel I was using popped. On live shrimp. I suspect it was a shark because it was all muscle and was peeling drag as fast as I could reel. Great video, the one that got away will always haunt me lol...

zoffinger - 7 years ago
I have always heard that they are tough to clean, they are certainly slimy, they have poisonous barbs and I've heard that they are not tasty like their freshwater cousins. BUT, I've never tried them. And enough people have said that they are ok. So, perhaps, it's time for me to give them a chance and invite one home for dinner.

I keep a paddle on board for when the depth is too low for the fins or if I want to turn from a standstill. The rudder only works once you've built up a bit of speed, which can take 20 feet or so. If you're stopped in front of a line of trees and want to turn around, a paddle comes in handy.

Marty, have you taken the new hobie into any tight spots? I've thought about buying a yak and am torn between the pro angler and the Native Slayer. I like the slayer because the propeller can be made to go in reverse, as well as forward. I'm fishing the creeks around Charleston, SC and think that maneuverability is crucial here. As always, love your videos and keep em' coming!
zoffinger - 7 years ago
I really wanted that Slayer10! Though, I heard it doesn't coast as well when you stop peddling and that the propeller will pick up grass and weeds more than the fins do on the Hobie. Here's the tightest situation I've been in with the Pro Angler... http://youtu.be/4vclZlQeigk

Hello, my name is justin I life in st.pete beach florida. I have watched pretty much all of your videos since you started your page. I also have a youtube page called grouperking, but I only have like 3 subs. I have also followed you on Instagram and Facebook. A lady named Dar on Instagram posted that she was on the eposeidon team, and I asked her if she new you and she said she did. I was also going to suggest for your next video that you fish off the beach in your kayak or of a jetty because the mackerel have been biting and I don't think you have posted any mackerel being caught. If you get this please comment back if possible. Thanks,Justin

I noticed a lot of the water you fish isn't very deep. Is that just the way it is in Tampa? I noticed you don't wear a flotation device very often . Have you ever tried trolling behind your kayak or is the water to shallow? Thanks for sharing.
zoffinger - 7 years ago
There are lots of 'flats' here in Tampa bay. There are also lots of deeper water spots. I just prefer the shallow areas because they offer more shelter from wind and boat traffic. I troll often but have limited success. Mainly because of the grass I pick up doing it, I suppose.

Those lures work best (not exclusively) during dawn and dusk hours. And if you throw them around the perimeter of mullet schools, and against the edges of tree lines (which is tricky, lest you hang it in a branch) you'll stand a good chance of getting a blow up eventually. It's really about recognizing structure and circumstances that are going to hold fish, more than knowing a good 'spot'. Spots change day to day, hour to hour. Don't fret, Ben. You'll get one. I still get skunked more often than I let on. Thank you, editing :^}

hey Marty,
What a nice thing to do and mention some of your fans of your videos. I really appreciate it. I am a subscriber to most of the channels you mentioned, will have to go look at the ones I did not recognize.I also am always inspired by your videos to do a better job on mine, for instance, at the end of your video you had to get out and go set up the camera to film yourself walking the kayak in to shore. it was a great shot and made the video complete. A person that did not care about their viewers would never take the time to do that. A lot of people shoot videos, but you have been making great video stories from the beginning. There is a big difference.
 Hope you get back to the bridge soon and get some Sheepheads. That was a great photo at the end.
 I am working on a solar powered underwater green fishing light that you might like, I will work on it next week and post a video of it turns out OK. thanks for making and sharing.

Hey man how r u liking your hobie? I'm looking at getting a more advanced kayak for fishin, but hobie kayaks are kinda insanely priced.
bikeboy0012 - 7 years ago
so when r you planning on going after that tarpon?? haha
zoffinger - 7 years ago
You aint kidding! But, the amazing thing about it is that you can go about 40% faster than paddling AND you can still cast and reel while you're going. It's seriously stable too, so when you inevitably venture out further because of your increased speed, you'll feel more secure in those bigger waves.- Man, it's a hard bullet to bite though for the money they get. At least it's not a rip off when you actually get one though. Feels like driving around in a Porsche. A 1975 AMC Pacer has four wheels and would get you around too, but some rides are just more fun ;) SOMETIMES, I should say. I had a blast on my old red kayak too!
