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.

Fished from 10am-sunset with Landwhale, no fish but perfect conditions the whole day. This sea turtle was fearless and came right over to me bumping the kayak and just stayed there looking up at me. I tried to feed it a crushed up mackerel, but it did not seem interested. I have always seen turtles... [Read More]
