Saltwater Kayak Fishing for Tuna

If bass fishing in a kayak wasn’t enough for you, try saltwater fishing for tuna in a kayak.


This is just unreal, I heard stories that kayak fisherman in saltwater will reach speeds of 15mph out on the ocean because the fish are so powerful.

Imagine that, holding on to your rod as you fly by other boaters in a small kayak.

You might think I’m totally BSing you!

Well I’m not, The New York Times wrote about fisherman named Dave Lamoureux that goes saltwater fishing in a kayak. You can read the full offical article here.

Lamoureux says that once you hook a big bluefin tuna, it’s like going on a “Nantucket sleigh ride.”

The largest fish Dave Lamoureux caught without any help was a 157 pound tuna. So how in the hell did Lamoureux do it? Well he has his own secrets!

I just congratulate him for his skill, this is a very unsafe hobby and shouldn’t be taken on by the average enthusiast. I can imagine if the fish is big enough, it can easily take your right under.

Kayak fishing is becoming very popular for both saltwater and freshwater, if I had my choice I’d go with freshwater.

But, I’m an old style fisherman, I like fishing from a nice size solid fishing boat. By the way, the picture to the right is of Dave Lamoureux and his 157 pound bluefin tuna.
