I go to Big Sur all the time for fishing and launching there is a nightmare. gotta pick the right sets and use speed and power to get from point A to B as fast as possible. launching and landing are the danger zone with rocks in Big Sur. It still worries me coming in, not so much going out.

+Joseph Saeteurn Big Sur is sketchy for sure. No cell coverage if it goes bad too. Totally worth it once youre out there though. So secluded.

Everytime I launch here in Florida there are some nice breakers that give you are hard time.. This video is right on with the explainations.. For me though, it's all about speed and power.. When you find a good break, rush in, jump and your yak and power straight through the breakers.. You hesitate or go sideways, you're turtled..

I just got back from Destin, Fl normaly a very calm surf but with the storm in the gulf the surf was massive but i was able to make it out..getting in i flipped. Also 7-8 swells once in the gulf

Good demonstration of the techniques. I'd love to see a bit more on dealing with the bigger waves going out. Anyone who's been put on their back by a three or four footer might like that!! :-)

Nobody should ever launch with rods upright in the holders. One little flip and your rods are broken. This is a BAD video.

@risenflame thats the ideal scenario for kayak fishing

problem is: every characteristic that makes the beach good for launching makes it bad for fishing...you want deep drop, rip current, etc. maybe launch away and come to those spots

I'd so love to have an open Kayak and fish from it. Lower spinal injuries makes it a seriously problematic experience tho :(

Calm water is no brainer! Show 'em what to do when the Nor'easter comes up while you've been on a hot bite for a couple of hours- that's what new kayakers need to know.

@stillrob420 Yes, you can paddle upstream. A good paddler can sustain a speed of 4 knots, with bursts of 5-6 knots.

with good technique and strength , will it be a problem paddling a kayak upstream? upstream will be very important in my decision to purchase a yak. Its just i have to get back to my car. :(

I leash my rod to the kayak. I used to use nylon cord but revcently got the proper leash that is slightly stretchy. I secure it on a saddle by my knee and it is just long enough so there is not a lot of slack. Everything other than my gaff (I have attached a small float to it.) is tied to my kayak. I belong to a Kayak Fishing Club and have seen others lose so much gear, so anything valuable must be secured.

Ideally you have a kayak in which you can get the kayaks into the hull of the boat. The OK Tridents are great for this but others with large hatches work as well. IF you can't get your rods into the kayak then you should lay them down so they don't snap if you flip and have them all leashed
