Addiction: Kayak Fishing (Video)

After compiling a years worth of footage from 2011, here's a visual cornucopia of kayak fishing delights from VA. It's not instructional, but perhaps motivational. I hope you enjoy and get pumped up for the new year.

  7. Thanks guys! I really had a good time making it. In fact, I can't wait to make another one :)

    Alex, I have to admit, I spent quite a bit of time learning iMovie'11 and editing all the footage. But it pays off...

    Enronx, it wasn't the Oregon Inlet Bridge. For the most part, it was the south end of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel.

    Seth, you're gonna love it. I look forward to seeing some of your footage!

    Justin, shut up :)

  9. Nice setup Rob. I'm new to the sport and was wondering if you could give me some insight on any must haves for a kayak fishing rookie. If you could list any items you have found indispensable or frequently used I would appreciate it.

  10. Justin, I just meant that you don't have to thank me. Let's keep fishing and making more!

    Gregg, thank you, good sir.

    Will, first thing, obviously, get a PFD (personal floatation device aka life vest) and a decent paddle. Then, THE MOST IMPORTANT thing to get is recovery/re-entry skills. Practice getting back in the kayak after falling out. Make sure you know how to flip a kayak if it is upside down and also make sure to practice in water that is deeper than your height. I feel like too many people get into this sport don't have this very important skill. After that, as far as "things" go, I have a whistle attached to my vest that also has a small mirror and white light for signaling in case of emergency. I also like having a fixed blade knife (non-folding) on my vest just in case of emergency. Line clippers on a quality retractor is nice to have as well. You know what, I'm going to do a blog post very soon about all this. It's a great subject. Thanks, Will. Let me know if you have any other specific questions. Email robchoi79@gmail.com

  11. Rob, Sick video! A friend from Cali just sent me your article on Kayak Fishing Mag. Keep up the good work; you're an inspiration! It makes me wish I still lived in Richmond!

  12. Great vid! Looks like you had a killer 2011 season! We've been stuck in a deep freeze here in Alaska so some of my winter opportunities just are panning out. -2 deg F today and that's warm! lol.

    I had a great 2011 rookie season with a kayak here in Alaska@ No where near as refined as your video but here's a short version of my 2011 season in Alaska...my very first year kayak fishing!
