Kayak fishing is a growing sport – especially in Navarre

Posted on September 10, 2019 by Staff reports

From tarpon to bass, there’s nothing off limits when kayak fishing.

Kayak fishing is a growing sport and it’s easy to see why. Kayaks are nimble, less expensive than most motorized boats and provide access to places even the best casts from land just can’t reach.

The Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation confirms that kayaks are the most popular type of boat for Americans to own and that the number of people participating in kayak fishing has gone up in the past six years.

“Navarre is known for our kayak fishing. We’re already a destination spot for kayak anglers around the southeast, and after the additional reefs are deployed south of the pier, we’ll see even more kayak anglers coming to our area,” said James Broxson, owner of Broxson Outdoors. “It’s a game changer for kayak fishing in the Panhandle of Florida.”

Broxson Outdoors is hosting a September 20 Inshore Kayak Fishing seminar entitled How to Target Flounder. The free seminar will take place from 6-8 p.m. at the store, located at 8155 Navarre Parkway. For more information call (850) 936-0230.
