Hey folks, I want to fish for these palegics from my kayak. I live in Austin and don't mind traveling with my vechicle to a spot to put in at. I was just wondering where would be the closes places in the Gulf to try for them thats in reach with my kayak?
Would it be Louisiana or do I need to go further East?
Ambitious. There are kayak guides that catch dorado off of the southeast coast of Florida, I think in the winter, along with sailfish and kings. They also catch some dorado off of the Pensacola/Destin area from kayaks.
There are some folks and guides that have done all of those species way offshore from motherships out of Venice, and the same could be done in the Florida Keys.
Oh, and definitely dorado and tuna from Kayaks at the East Cape of Baja, Rancho Leonero and some other lodges offer these trips. Check out Jim Sammons and the Kayak Fishing Show on Carbon TV, they have episodes.
