Kayak fishing is more than a pastime for YakGear Brand Ambassador Adam Fisk. It’s simply how he was raised. It was the outdoorsman’s father who first introduced him to fishing at a young age — and his mother’s purchase of a tandem kayak that got him interested in that particular mode of transportation. Both hobbies took hold and, before Adam knew it, he was hooked. As he grew older, Adam made his way to Florida Atlantic University. When he wasn’t studying, he found himself enjoying offshore fishing trips nearly every day, and eventually competing — and placing — in kayak fishing tournaments. Before long he turned his passion into a career, taking on work as a kayak fishing guide.
Today, Adam manages Panama, Florida’s Los Buzos Kayak Fishing Lodge. The resort is a refuge for kayak fishers of all ages and experience levels, giving them the opportunity to enjoy the thrill of fishing for exotic species. Adam recently made history when he leadered a 450-pound marlin from his kayak at Los Buzos. Watch the video of this incredible catch here.
