Robert Duerscheidt

My names Robert Duerscheidt and I'm 35 years old. I've been fishing most my life ever since I was a little kid in a very very big pond(the Atlantic Ocean) fishing for Stripers, Bluefish, fluke, etc out of one of America's most Dangerous inlet's the "Barnegat Light Inlet", in Southern NJ. it was here my father and uncles taught and honed my love for fishing.  

I Moved to Orlando, FL in 2000 to attend College and found the new to me pristine waters of Florida's Space Coast. I first started off fishing from a canoe but after meeting a few of the original kayak fisherman that existed at that time on these waters, I quickly swapped the canoe for a kayak and the obsession began. I was lucky enough to meet and get schooled by a Capt who had over 20 years guiding on the lagoons, and was a St. Croix Fly Master, under his wing I quickly learned the habitat I was now fishing, and the methods of catching the species of the Merritt Island National Seashore Refuge in Titusville, Fl, also know as the "Indian River Lagoon, "Mosquito Lagoon", & "Banana River Lagoon(No Motor Zone, NMZ)

I have fished Mosquito Lagoon, Indian River Lagoon, and "The No Motor Zone"  aka the Banana River quite exstensively and from my knowledge and tournament wins over the years I've built up my own Kayak Fishing Charter Company called "" which is celebrating its 5th Year running, and is thrilled to now be apart of the Johnson Outdoors Kayak Fishing Pro Staff. I intend on putting as many new and old Kayak fishermen in the Old Town Predator and showing them why its a superior fishing kayak.
