trip description for Kayak Fishing with Dave and Crew in Destin

This trip is the real deal! Don't expect a leisurely paddle out in the bay (which Dave also offers) instead expect to get pulled around by all kinds of different species as you fight down fish from the comfortable seat of a first-rate angling kayak. Once you book your trip, you and your guide will discuss the best fish feeding times and tidal information for the desired day you’d like to go out and figure out the best time and location for you to meet up and start your… Kayak Fishing Adventure. Dave and all his guides have the knowledge and skillset to put you on fish, whether you want to head out into the gulf, sneak into the backcountry, or hit the open bay in a kayak. Dave will provide each customer with first-class angler kayaks that come with the most comfortable seats in the industry, paddle or pedal driven Kayaks, gear and tackle, and all necessary safety equipment. Custom rods and reels are provided for the trip along with artificial tackle, live bait, dry storage containers, sunscreen SPF30+, and bug spray. Although all his guides will have coolers with ice onboard each of the kayaks, customers will have to provide their own 6 pack size cooler for their own drinks and snacks. Dave and all his guides will also take PROFESSIONAL PHOTOS of the fish you catch and email you all pictures upon your request. They will also bring along a GO-PRO camera to take any video of your preference upon request. You never know what footage might get snagged! Be prepared to expect the unexpected out on the water fishing around Destin in a Kayak, you never know what you're going too catch! They can also hire a professional photographer to film and photograph your whole trip for an additional cost. Ask us about that option if you are interested in having something to take home to your family. **Words of Advice from Dave** All Kayak passengers must know how to swim, wear the provided life jacket (PFD) at all times while on the water, be at least 18 years of age, or be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian who must supervise the minor at all times both on land and while on the water.

Enjoy an unforgettable experience duck hunting in Rockport TX, an area not only renowned within the state of Texas, but also across the country as one of the best places to hunt due to its wide variety of bird species and the tremendous bird population. By choosing us as your Rockport duck hunting guides, you can fulfill your dream of hunting down the following species without any hassle and without the need for any former experience in hunting: Redhead, Bluebills, Ringneck, Widgeon, Pintail, Greenwing, Bluewing, Northern shoveler, Gadwall, Bufflehead, and Goldeneye. On top of that you can have one of the best chances in the Lower 48 at killing a Cinnamon Teal! Leaf's Texas duck hunting trips are fun and offer several benefits, and provide a mentally stimulating challenge to hunters as well. Duck hunting can range in difficulty but oftentimes can pose quite a challenge. Waterfowlers need to be deceptive with decoys, stay patient, and account for factors such as wind and migration patterns. Duck hunting prevents overpopulation, and in turn, preserves native biodiversity. This makes your contribution to duck hunting in Texas go beyond just the thrill of trophy hunts — you are helping out the planet. It’s becoming increasingly difficult to disconnect from our interconnected world. Many work on computer screens all day and then go home to use TV’s, laptops, phones, tablets, you name it. Technology provides conveniences, but sometimes you need a break from it—not only to feel better, but for the sake of your health, too. Duck hunting serves as a great escape to nature. A mere few hours in nature help you not only escape our digital world—but also let you alleviate stress in a positive way. Getting away from the ordinary provides an important refresher for your body and mind! All the decoys, blinds, and transportation are taken care of on the trips, all you need to bring with you is your shotgun (12 gauge recommended), steel shot shells, and waders. Leaf and his team will take care of the rest! Read More

Everything to Know About Booking a fishing trip

What are the best kayak fishing trips?

Why should I book a kayak fishing trip with Captain Experiences?

Our Damn Good Guides currently offer 6 kayak fishing trips, and the most popular trips are Kayak Fishing with Dave and Crew guided by David, Devil's River Kayak Adventure guided by Shane, and Kayak Fishing guided by Dustin.

Our guides are rated a 5 out of 5 based on 3160 verified reviews on Captain Experiences.

All guides on Captain Experiences are licensed, insured, and vetted by our team. You can access their reviews, click through trip photos, read bios to get to know them, and preview trip details like species, techniques, group sizes, boat specs and more.

Looking for kid friendly kayak fishing guides / fishing lessons? Check out our beginner and family friendly kayak fishing guides.

What types of kayak fishing trips are common?

River fishing is the most popular for kayak fishing as well as lake fishing, inshore fishing, and nearshore fishing.

The most commonly sought after species for kayak fishing are: 1. largemouth bass, 2. smallmouth bass, 3. blue catfish, and 4. crappie.

How much does a kayak fishing fishing trip cost?

kayak fishing prices can range anywhere from about $475 to $3,000, but the average price for a half day trip kayak fishing is $517. The average price for a full day trip kayak fishing is $1,643.

Is booking a fishing guide worth the money?

Hiring a guide provides a number of benefits and many choose to book a fishing guide for a combination of experience, local knowledge, convenience, and cost-effectiveness.

Working with experienced fishing guides who know the best local spots and techniques can dramatically increase your odds of a great day. Having someone who is on the water every day and knows the area like the back of their hand is going to give you the best chances of success.

Booking a guide is also more cost effective, especially if you only get out a handful of times per year. When you consider all of the costs you would incur on your own such as the price of a boat, maintenance, insurance, gas, high-quality gear and tackle, repairs, and more, you’ll find that DIY is sometimes not worth the expense.

Even if you’ve got a great setup already in your home waters, booking a guide also provides a great opportunity to experience new techniques, new locations, or even a chance at a new target species to knock off the bucket list.

What month is best for going on a kayak fishing trip?

The most popular season to go on a kayak fishing trip is spring, and most anglers book their trips 35 days in advance.

Do I need a fishing license and what are the bag limits?

See here for more information on fishing licenses, bag limits, and fishing season regulations. When in doubt, your fishing guide will always know the right rules and regulations.
