» Big Water’s Edge – Kayak Fishing Adventures
Welcome to Big Water’s Edge, Kayak Fishing Adventures web site.

Whether you’re just getting started with kayak fishing or you’re seasoned veteran of the sport, we invite you to visit our Information pages for articles on kayak safety, kayak selection, rigging and storing your kayak, specific kayak fishing techniques or just unforgettable fishing stories. Browse our Gallery for some exciting kayak fishing photos and video.

Visit our Forums for general information on kayak fishing, ask questions or share your experience. We are based and fish mostly in Southern California, but we welcome reports from any part of the country, or any other part of kayak fishing world.

We are a home to West Coast Whoppers, a year long kayak fishing tournament targeting yellowtail, white-seabass and halibut.

It was a dark and stormy night, (really, thanks to the first big storm of the season). At times like this I like to go to the shop and futz around. I tinker with things and sometimes come up with an idea or two on how to make the things I use work better. I call on my inner-Macgyver. We all have a... [Read More]

Springtime Cbass
May 12, 2014 - 2:24 PM - by chris138
It seems like the last several years I get real lucky around springtime. It all started when I speared my first 60 pounder way back in April of 2010. The big females are in the kelp and ready to spawn. So many of us are conditioned to the predictability of the squid bite in recent years. You pull... [Read More]

Boat vs. Kayak Fishing
Feb 24, 2014 - 2:19 PM - by Smthtnnr
Well, I now appreciate kayak fishing more than ever. Before I took for granted the ability to pull on yellowtail all alone, in the peace of your own kayak. Not to mention, these are big 30+ pounders.
