  • Has Spring Fishing Decided To Show Up?

    We have all become accustomed lately to reports that talk about strong winds, muddy water, and few or no fish. There have been exceptions, but this generally seems to be the consensus, even on a national level. Many kayak anglers, including me, have seen several days/months where there is little to no action on the water. Yesterday, I had a glimmer of hope that spring fishing has decided to arrive.

  • Top honors at the River Bassin' stop in Gadsen

    The Gadsden regional stop of the River Bassin’ 2014 Tournament Trail set up perfectly in my old stomping grounds. The two-hour boundary gave me numerous options to chase big river spots and largemouth, but I chose a flow I knew consistently held big spots. Although largemouth were preferred, I gambled that throwing big baits would bring me three spotted bass big enough to win. With high water from previous storms and a huge front looming, river conditions were anything but certain. Read More

ENO (Eagles Nest Outfitters) “OneLink Sleep System”
Reviewed by Mark Watanabe
"A few months ago, the YakAngler crew took a ten-day road trip that took us from Louisville, KY all the way down into the Florida Everglades. We had lodging set up for a few stops, but the majority of the trip was unplanned. I wanted a quick solution that was easy to pack, didn’t take up much space, and could be deployed on uneven ground. Looking through online reviews,, I decided on the Eagles Nest Outfitters “OneLink Sleep..."
Wilderness Systems "Ride 115X"
Reviewed by Mark Watanabe
"After seeing the Wilderness Systems “Ride 115x” on the showroom floor of the Salt Palace Convention Center at OR (Outdoor Retailer) 2013, I knew I wanted to get my hands on one. With some help from Wilderness Systems and Hook1, I had a slightly used Ride 115x dropped off at my campsite at last year’s Columbus Day Boondoggle. Wilderness Systems Ride 115x was designed with the input from the Wildy Pro Staff, and it shows. The kayak incorporates cool..."
