Kayak Fishing is exploding in popularity! The reasons are simple. Kayaks are safe, exciting to fish from, inexpensive to purchase and to maintain, easy to transport, and less damaging to the environment. Best of all: anyone can do it.

Jackson Kayak’s The Kayak Fishing Show with Jim Sammons and Seaguar’s Extreme Kayak Fishing Challenge are the first of their kind TV shows and adventure movies. Designed to entertain, educate and inspire anglers, whether or not they have ever considered fishing from a kayak. The shows follow world renowned kayak angler, Jim Sammons, around North America (and beyond) on the fishing adventure of a lifetime. Battles with marlin in Baja, halibut in Alaska, tarpon in Florida, stripers in Chesapeake Bay, muskie in Canada, and tuna in Panama are just some of what you can expect to see in this exciting series.
On our blog we will not only keep you up to date with our adventures we will also post news about the latest kayak gear and goings-on in the industry. Our blog will also be filled with kayak fishing tips that we use and learned during our travels. Please feel free to post comments or questions and we will answer them as soon as we can.
We are always looking for new exciting kayak fishing destinations so if you have any ideas please send them out way. You can also contact me directly via email Jim@Kayak4Fish.com
You can also see short segments of our show and many kayak fishing tips videos on our sister site Kayak Fishing Tales
Make sure to look for us on WFN.


  1. Great blog about taking youngsters fishing. I agree, the light in their face when they catch something is worth it all. Glad you said to keep it simple and short. Sometimes we heavy duty fishing dads forget this. I even advise people to only take one rod on the first trip, as the day is for the youngster to catch fish.

    Thanks again.

  2. I’m a fairly large guy, 6’2″ 280lbs, and I have an 11yr old son, I am looking for a tandem kayak that could handle both our weights (he weighs 95lbs), any reccomendations would be welcomed.

    1. There are a couple you could try, The OCean Kayak Malibu II XL and another would be the Cobra Triple. Personally by the time my kids were that age they were in their own kayaks. I am sure that your son at his size could handle his own boat. Somthing like a OK Trident 11 or 13 or a Caper would be good for him, then you could have a good single for yourself a Trident 15 or a Big Game would be good choices.
      Feel free to call me if you would like to discuss options. 619-461-7172 Jim SAmmons

  3. Thanks for the feedback Jim, I’ll get him his own kayak in the future, but for starters, i’ll look for one of those tandems you mentioned, to boost his confidence of being on the water.

  4. Hi Jim

    My friend and I wanted to let you know that you have completely inspired us to tackle (pun intended) kayak fishing and we love it. It’s a must do every weekend and we’re thirsting for knowledge everyday. I’m from San Diego (currently in Miami, FL) and love seeing the skyline in some of your episodes (makes me miss home). You rock and we just wanted you to know that. 🙂

    Michelle and Gina

  5. I watch as much of your shows on WFN as they air. Of all the exotic fish you have caught, I really enjoyed your La Jolla episode. Nothing huge but more of a typical day in California for me anyways. I could tell you were at home it was nice to see your wife and was that your son eating squid with you. I was laid up with back injury and saw your show like 4 years ago and as soon as I could I got a kayak and went for it and now find myself giving advice to others on WSB yellow tail and general kayak fishing. Your show and you have got my butt off the couch and out on the water where it belongs and for that I thank you. Would love to have a guided day by you if you still do that. It would be for me like playing football with Joe Montana or skating with Tony Hawk. Thank Shawn Grant
