Portugal kayak fishing.


Rui Carvalho with Team Ocean Kayak sent this story from Portugal:

In the spring the big croakers enter the Tejo River. The fish weigh up to 60 kilograms. We usually fish with softbaits.

We catch these fish in 25 feet of water. They are very strong and fighting them in shallow water is very intense.

When I mark a fish on the fishfinder, my heart races. They can bite anytime!

“Thank God my dad wasn’t a podiatrist,” jokes Ric about following in the footsteps of a famous outdoor writer. After graduating from Radford University and serving two years in Russia with the Peace Corps, Ric returned to Virginia Beach and started writing for The Fisherman magazine, where his dad was editor. When the kayak fishing scene exploded, Ric was among the first to get onboard. His 2007 book, The Complete Kayak Fisherman is one of the first tomes to introduce anglers to paddle fishing and hundreds of articles and seminars have brought countless anglers into the fold. When he’s not chasing every fish that swims, Ric teaches English at a school for at-risk teens.
