So you have tried fishing from the bank or a motor boat but want to get closer and be quieter? Dreamed of targeting springer salmon from the comfort and flexibility of a kayak, but are not ready to jump into the deep end? Come get your line wet Next Adventure, with Scappoose Bay General Manager and sponsored kayak fisherman Tanner Preciado on your First Cast: Springer Salmon Demo Day!
The First Cast program gets you on the water with a guide and instructor to demo Hobie Fishing Kayaks while targeting one of the Northwest's Legendary runs: Spring Chinook Salmon! We have six dates throughout the Spring Run to try your first cast from a kayak and learn the tips and tricks for kayak fishing. Your experience will introduce boat features, an education on basic rigging, kayak fishing tactics, and of course, the opportunity to fish! Bring your favorite rod for springers, and we will provide the tackle. If you do not happen to have a rod, we will have a limited selection of gear available to demo. We promise, you'll be hooked.
Better yet, if you buy a 2015 Hobie within ONE WEEK of your First Cast, we will knock a $100 off your boat! That means you get a free class and a great deal! Just to ice the cake, we will also give you 10% off all your accessories, and rig your boat for free. It's our gift to you to get you fishing right!
