In kayak fishing Florida, non-motorized vessels less than 16 feet in length are not required to be registered or titled. However, regulations do require that each occupant of the vessel have a type I, II, III, or V personal floatation device (PFD). You are also required to have a whistle or efficient sound producing device onboard. If you are going to be out on the water at night or in low-light conditions you are also required to have a light that is bright enough so that others can see you.

Kayak fishing in Florida has many great opportunities. This week I thought I would go back a few years and share one of my most favorite spots here in Florida. The island of Chokoloskee sits right in the middle of what’s known as the 10,000 Islands, which starts in Naples and runs all the way south along the west coast of Florida.
