Kayak Fishing Ultimate Resource

  • King for a Day

    Super Bowl Sunday. Hmmm...love the Seahawks, but I LOVE fishing even more. I have a streak of five consecutive months where I have caught a king salmon from a kayak in the saltwater out of Homer, AK! I’ve called Alaska home since 1971, and even I can’t believe you can catch fish like this! It’s unreal! Read More
  • The 2015 Midwest Kayak Fishing Series

    The Midwest Kayak Fishing Series started in 2014 under the creative ambition of tournament director Raf Vargas. 101 anglers registered for at least one event. Over $10,000 in prizes was awarded, and a 2014 Hobie Outback was the top prize for the grand champion. Along with the fat prize packages, nearly $4,000 was raised for Heroes on the Water. Two Heroes on the Water chapters were given brand new Hobie “Outback” kayaks, with leftover money going to the group. Read More
  • YakAngler Pro Richard Ofner A Top Gun

    Regional Pro Richard Ofner is a Hobie Top Gun. Does this mean Hobie is now in the fighter manufacturing business, or maybe Richard will be trading call signs with Iceman and Maverick; no. (We just couldn't resist the Top Gun Head In A Hole.) The Top Gun Educational Program is a group of elite kayak angers from the Hobie fishing team that have been picked because of their contributions to the sport of kayak fishing. It was no surprise we found Richard on this inaugural list.  Read More

  • Fishin' with Funk - Boongoggle 2015

    I have wanted to go to the Everglades for as long as I have held a fishin’ rod. As soon as I saw the location for the 2015 Boondoggle, I started making plans. My friend Robert and I had talked about fishing the Glades for the twenty-plus years we have worked together so I knew exactly who to ask to go along. Way before sunrise on February 12, we saddled up my Tacoma and headed south for the twelve-hour drive. Read More
  • Hardcore Swimbait Stripers, Part II

    My father and I paddled a peaceful Alabama creek this past summer, and I captured some of the most exciting swimbait fishing I have ever experienced. I knew this trip would be special when my 6” Bull Shad got hammered on the very first cast. Read More

Stohlquist "Fisherman" PFD
 
5.0
"I’ve used the Stohlquist Fisherman PFD for over 2 years and have nothing but compliments about it. #1 it is comfortable, if a PFD is not comfortable you will not wear it. The Fisherman has a high back which allows me to sit comfortable in Jackson, Native, Hobie, and Wilderness framed seats. The sides and lower back are vented so you don’t feel like your roasting in an oven when wearing it on a hot summer day...."
Malibu "Mini X"

"I was lucky enough to borrow a Malibu Mini X for over a year from the owner of Kayak Fishing Radio Chip Gibson. Used in specific situations the Mini X excels, but I wouldn't recommend it if you fish large bodies of water frequently. The Malibu Mini X has many great features but is by no means a good “all around kayak”. Let’s start with what I like about the Malibu Mini X Light weight – The Malibu..."

"Finding our selves without kayaks at 7 pm Friday night, we were in a scramble. Adam and I needed to get our hands on some form of roto-molded flotation device to use on our last fishing day in Florida. We stopped by a small kayak shop in Largo but they didn't have any rentals left. Three calls to other shops “without naming names” ended in “Sorry but we can’t help you”. Our final stop was a..."
