As our other kayak tour options have been busy this summer, the same can be said for our kayak fishing tours! We’re stoked to offer this unique outdoor experience in some of the best fishing areas our region has to offer: Back Bay for our freshwater tours and Rudee Inlet for our saltwater tours. A recent trip out to one of Back Bay’s true honey holes saw an ideal scene for pursuing largemouth bass, the world’s most popular freshwater gamefish. Thick, healthy beds of aquatic vegetation called Eurasian water milfoil blanketed the reed-lined cove — the perfect cover for these voracious ambush predators. The presence of these grass beds is a great sign that our water quality is top-notch, which translates to ample fish populations as well as an overall good bill of health for the Back Bay watershed. Our trip saw plenty of action with steady hits and a nice, lively catch (and release!).
