While the lakes of Alabama are known for their beauty, autumn is their time to shine.

Team Redstone is invited to enjoy a morning on the water as part of Outdoor Recreation’s guided kayak program. The family-friendly offering is an opportunity for novices to learn and explore local fishing spots with the help of an outdoor sporting expert. Bring your fishing pole and Outdoor Rec will supply and transport the safety equipment and kayaks.

“These are fishing kayaks so they are top deck with fairly luxurious seats that are padded,” Frederick Anderson, hunting coordinator and recreation program specialist, said.

There are many benefits for fishing with a subject matter expert but clients are also welcome to sail off on their own for some quiet fishing time – with the guide just a paddle away. “We are in a sportsman’s paradise,” Anderson said. But having a guide close by can help parents who would like to introduce their children to the sport of fishing – or learn themselves.

Locations are scouted beforehand for safety and Anderson also monitors local reports to keep on top of biting trends. He said Outdoor Rec is always open to suggestions if a customer has another local water spot in mind.

The guided kayaking program is limited to 10 people per group and the cost is $40 per person. Each event will last from 6 a.m. to noon at Madison County Lake, Wheeler Wildlife Preserve, or Lake Guntersville.

For more information or to register, call Anderson at 876-4868.
