Hey everyone!

My Name is Josh, I am from New Orleans and am a kayak fishing addict. My girlfriend got a job in Fresno, and I should be spending a good amount of time out there for the foreseeable future. I'll be arriving this Aug 30- till about Sep25.

Looking to get on some fish and meet some new kayak fisherman. I won't have my own boat in Fresno yet, so I'll be looking to rent a boat and possibly do some guided trips. Any help and hints are much appreciated. I plan on fishing offshore and inshore lakes, and will have a lot of free time if anyone needs a sidekick.

Also, if you are ever in New Orleans I would be glad to put anyone on some fish. I run a kayak swamp tour and kayak fishing service down here. www.wildlouisianatours.com

Welcome.  You want to lookup LoletaEric, Bushy, or Str8Fishin.  They are resident expert guides and will show you around in style (i.e. Shelter Cove, HMB, Monterey/Santa Cruz).

welcome to Fresno...the middle of  California...where it takes 3 hrs to go to the ocean :) There are a ton of lakes around here to target so all is not lost :) Fall is around the corner and now that school is back in session, the higher lakes should be lice free :)

let me know if you need any tip or help :)
