About Me

AMERICAN YAKERS Are a kayak & land based shark fishing team that was created by Chester Gamble and David Wood. Team American Yakers has since grown quite a bit. Other veteran and/or their family members have joined our family. I would have to say that our fishing tournament/rodeo team is still being uncovered. We fish primarily out of Navarre Florida but are not afraid to travel any distance for a good bite. As our wives say we definitely have fishues! To us kayak fishing is more than just a hobby, it’s a huge part of who we are, our woosah, time to unwind and bond. This team was made for us to share moments, take videos and pictures with the ones we love/or like. For all who have served this nation, veterans suffering from PTSD or TBI’s and would like to fish we do not charge and have all the equipment to make it happen. Please send us a private message. Fish on &Tight lines 🇺🇸🎣🇺🇸🎣🇺🇸🎣
