Kayak fishing is taking off everywhere, and Taiwan is no exception. Since private sportfishing craft are hard to come by, small watercraft like kayaks fill the niche. Kayakers in Taiwan target everything from nearshore species like bass, grouper, rockfish and barramuni to pelagic species that move inshore in the summer months. A YouTube search will turn up kayakers and even paddleboarders landing everything from billfish, tuna and GTs to sharks.
The guys in this video are going after one of the area's more popular winter targets, cutlassfish, or hairtail as they are also known.
