Kayak Sportfishing is dedicated to the art of kayak fishing. We've been helping paddlers, anglers, and newcomers since 2001 make the transition to what's become one of fastest growing and exciting sports today. Not just for newcomers, KayakSportfishing.com is an active online community and hub for seasoned kayak anglers and newcomers alike to get together and discuss all facets of the sport. Our intent was to create an advocate website dedicated to this increasingly popular and growing sport. Thanks to the members and guests it's become something much more than that. With over 5,000 registered members and growing, it's become a kayak fishing community where anyone from anywhere can get together to share in a common interest and passion with others.
Through photography, detailed reports and how to articles, we hope to create as much of a visual as possible. If you've never fished from a kayak before, this site may open your eyes to what could become some of the best experiences of your life. Whether you're fishing for bass or hunting for big game off shore, kayak fishing allows the angler to make the call without breaking the personal bank. At first glance it may look like an alternative to paying the costly price of private boating. But as you venture out into the water, you will soon realize that the amount of wealth you gain from your experience greatly outweighs any financial savings.
About the founder
Jason Morton began his kayak fishing journey in Baja, California in the summer of 1996. He became immediately addicted as what was originally intended to be only a summer time activity grew to become a year round obsession. Jason put his obsession online in 2001 and became a licensed guide there shortly after. He's since helped hundreds of anglers and paddling enthusiasts with their kayak fishing education both on and off of the water.
Jason's been featured doing the kayak fisihing thang on Fox Sports and the Travel Channel. His kayak fishing exploits and adventures have appeared several times in regional and national publications.
He's boated several fish over 50lbs from the kayak. His largest kayak catch to date was a 10'4" - 235lb thresher shark he caught and landed unassisted.
Jason routinely practices catch and release yet believes that certain species of fish can be harvested responsibly. Get to know your fishery. Understand the species you're catching and keeping in regards to the estimated abundance or lack there of. Don't harvest for your friend's friend, your 3rd cousin, Vinny the local barber....you get the point. Give back when you can as each time is like making a small investment towards the health and well being of our fisheries.
