Kayak and paddleboard fishing the Gulf Islands National Seashore
Grab a paddle and let’s skedaddle!
Kayak and paddleboard fishing is great for families with kids who are comfortable on the water. One of our favorite fishing spots is the Gulf Islands National Seashore. The water is clear and calm and you might even see some dolphins!
Try a petal drive kayak so you can propel across the water and keep your hands free for casting. If you are on a paddleboard, be sure to have an anchor so you can stay in one place to target fish.
Tip from our locals:
Rent your rod and reel and purchase bait at Half Hitch Tackle or Bass Pro Shop in Destin Commons.
