Matt Wiesenhunt and Cristine , joined us on a magical week long trip, we visited the Woanan Indian village and kayak fished everyday
For this trip and location I opted to fish Stealth kayaks, they are unbeatable in the surf
Jaque is renowned for its surf and we launched with all gear stored.
The fishing was slow but we worked and paddled hard at the end of the day Matt caught a amazing rooster fish , he,s best ever
The Darien coast is unexplored and truly a once in a lifetime kayak fishing experience
