From the beginning of Blackfins Outdoors apart of our core mission is to give back to children in urban communities and showing youth the many wonders and opportunities of the outdoors sporting industry.
My response was of excitement and anxiousness of when I could fish this newly found honey hole for Reds. So a few days later I did just that and loaded up the Feel Free Kayak and headed to the numbers my partner sent me.
Turkey hunting requires planning, research, scouting and some luck. Being a new hunter I needed all the help I could get, so I asked questions and read every article I could find.

Largemouth bass fishing from kayaks is a different experience than fishing from a boat or from land, the perspective is more like hunting than fishing, as you can see everything up close and target your cast points more effectively. No huge monsters in this vid, but always a great day on the water.
Last year I mentioned to my partner that we should look into getting kayaks for fishing. The initial response was, “Why fish from a kayak, when you have a boat?” At the time, we had recently began doing a lot of bass fishing from a lake that was not accessible with a boat of any substantial size. I also began noticing saltwater locations that I would love to fish, but the water was too shallow to cross in a boat.
