Playak News Watch

Covering the World's Paddling News by the Minute!

Kayak News

Playak News Flash

The famous Playak News Flash informs tens of thousands of paddlers around the world about the most popular paddling news each day. Playak editors hand-pick the best headlines 24/7, and those that are viewed most by our readers are sent out in the News Flash. Each Friday, we send out the Weekly Digest (instead of the daily News Flash), containing the top headlines of the past 7 days, as well as the most popular videos and forum topics, plus a list of upcoming events.

2014 Suncoast Saltwater Shootout

Steve Gibson (3 hrs. ago) - The weather was not favorable. And the forcast wasn’t looking any better. After a quick Capt meeting at Marina Jack we were release to fish around 5pm. We were allowed to fish through the night and had to be back at weigh in by 4pm the next day. We stayed south dodging the heavy rains but our luck eventually ran out. After only catching a few decent Trout and Mangrove Snapper we decided it wasnt worth staying out in the heavy down poor.  read more...
