Rigging Clinic

Feb 1st 2014

With the start of the new year we hold our annual rigging clinic to help new kayak anglers add, modify, or remove items to/from their kayaks to aid them in the pursuit of the perfect fishing kayak.

Bring your yaks and any rigging projects you have. Take advantage of the experience of others.

If your yak is fully rigged, bring it to show off. Seeing how others have rigged their yaks is half the fun.

Also, if you have yak gear to sell or swap, bring it and we can set up a barter station.

Location: Pensacola Kayak & Sail
3009 Olde Barrancas Ave Pensacola, FL 32507
Time: 10:00 am - 3:00 pm)

 

 

GCKFA Campout & Fishing
Spring Forward / Fall Back Event

 

 


The Gulf Coast Kayak Fishing Association is planning an overnight fishing trip to the Grassy Point Wildlife Management Area. Grassy Point is located on the east shore of Blackwater Bay and provides ready access to the fishing area in Little Catfish and Catfish basins. Redfish, trout and flounder can be found in the marshes, bayous and shallow water area of the Blackwater. The GCKFA has held this event several times and decided it was so enjoyable that it should be at least an annual event.
Grassy Point is a small campsite and former county park now owned and managed by the Northwest Florida Water Management District and is part of the over 17,000 acre Yellow River Wildlife Management Area.


Grassy Point sits in a small cove near Escribano Point. The site is fairly primitive with portable toilets, picnic tables and two (2) designated camping areas. We can camp there without a permit as long as we camp only in the designated areas. The larger camping area is on the Bay with excellent camp sites, large shade oaks and a sandy beach. The bayou camp site has a primitive boat ramp for easy kayak launches. We usually have a volunteer to campout Friday night or arrive early Saturday to secure the bayou camp site for the group. Please check out our photo gallery for images of previous events.


Keep in mind the following:
There is no power - at least that I could see - and the nearest store is in Holley. Alcohol is NOT allowed in the NW FL Water management District recreation area. Lastly, the NW FL WMD guy told me that they have a bit of a bear problem so we should plan accordingly. Bear info is available on the FWC web site.
