Your guide and the owner of Treasure Coast Kayaking, Captain Curt with a redfish cought from the Indian River near Stuart, Florida.
Pedal drive means your hands are free to set the hook and catch fish!
Light to medium spinning tackle is the preferred choice for kayak fishing with artificial lures. Soft plastic jerkbaits, swimbaits and shrimp will catch most inshore gamefish and D.O.A. lures are a favorite with us. We will also use plugs, spoons and jigs when trying to find the right bait for the time and location on a trip. Our kayaks are completely outfitted for your trip, but if you prefer your own special rod and lures just let us know in advance.
Our Primary fishing area is on the Indian River in Martin and Saint Lucie Counties along the southeast coast of Florida. The inshore game fish in this area are the snook, seatrout, redfish, and tarpon. There are many others to keep that rod bent during the year like jacks and ladyfish in the warmer months, bluefish, pompano and mackerel during the cooler time of the year. Just getting on one of these kayaks and being out on the river will be an adventure in it's self . Spinning gear and artificial baits are the only method we use to fish from our kayaks we suggest that before you consider a trip with us that you are comfortable as a angler fishing with these methods. We can take you out to our favorite locations and give you some tips on lures and method but you will be in the kayak by yourself. Your guide will instruct you on the safe use and features of the Hobie kayak that you will be fishing from and will be close by of course and ready to assist in any way to make sure that you are safe and have a great time fishing from your "Outback".
The Indian River is a great place to catch snook and trout year round. Here a nice snook is photographed and released from one of our Hobie kayaks.
Fishing from a kayak means you can get into some pretty shallow water and fish right along the shore line or in tight creeks and mangroves where power boats can't get into. We can pedal the kayak to a channel near a flat or an ambush point at the end of a bar without a sound that might scare off fish that would otherwise spook easily. This snook was caught and released from the kayak and you can see how shallow the water was here.
One to four people, your fishing gear or ours. Custom trips available. Give us a call and let's go fishing.
