NaturalNorthFlorida.com’s Tommy Thompson recently visited Wakulla with several other outdoor travel writers for a kayak fishing adventure.
Last weekend I left my flats skiff behind in Steinhatchee and joined a couple of other outdoor writers in Wakulla County for a kayak-fishing adventure. Of course, over the years, I’ve made numerous trips out of St. Marks, Panacea and Spring Creek, but never had much chance to fish the shallow, close-in flats and inshore bays and bars. Kayaks were the conveyance of choice, and thanks to Robert Baker at Reel-Fin-Addict Kayak Fishing in Wakulla, we had some comfortable Hobie Master Angler boats to pedal. Equipped with Mirage Drives and seats that seem to come directly from the Cadillac Motor Division of GM, these boats are silent and stable, allowing the angler to get close to fish and avoid spooking them in even the shallowest of water. Robert also knew where we’d find some fish!
