  • MNFKA Mankato Bass Classic

    June 20 was the official tournament day for the 2015 Mankato Bass Classic. We had thirty four registered entrants from around the state of Minnesota. The event unofficially began on June 19, when the Minnesota Kayak Fishing Association board met at Lake Francis near Mankato, MN to do a little informal fishing. Read More
  • Cashing in at the “Bank”

    During the annual frenzy of the spring trophy striper season when the tactics are mainly deep-water motorboat trolling with heavy gear, anglers can be rewarded with a fish of a lifetime. As spring nears an end and summertime temps start to creep up, the focus moves to other tactics and gear. Trolling stays in play, while jigging, chumming/chunking, and live-lining get in on the act. For me, the fast-paced action of light tackle along the shallow shores and marsh banks is the ticket! Read More
  • Bits of Advice for the Kayak Fishing Tournament Newbie

    WHAM! Something had just hit the white spinnerbait I was tossing along a line of lily pads, and my drag wasn’t set high enough to keep the fish from pulling line out. Needing this fish to score my first entry in an online kayak fishing tournament, I tightened the drag a bit and got the net ready. Read More
  • Spec Limits in Grand Isle, LA

    At the end of May, I had the opportunity to fish the IFA Tournament in Lafitte, LA, which also meant two days of pre-fishing. I spent most of my time in Grand Isle, LA. It was new water for me, so I thought I would share about an easy yet productive place to fish, even for a beginner. Read More
  • A Geartrac-mounted bait board

    Saltwater anglers tend to use many different types of cut bait. Cutting and cleaning bait on the deck of our kayaks is damaging and ruins the aesthetics of the kayak. Here is the answer I developed. Read More
  • 2015 Jacksonville Kayak Fishing Classic

    I have participated in the Jacksonville Kayak Fishing Classic for the past four years. The folks that run the event do a great job every year. The captains meeting for me is a chance to catch up and swap fishing stories from the past year with old friends and an opportunity to meet new friends. The weigh-in gives me the opportunity to swap stories from tournament day and at the end of the ceremonies to say goodbye till the next year. Read More

McAlpine Dam Harrison Ave Ramp

"You have to watch the water levels at this launch. They close the ramp if the water is too high for boats to launch, but even if the ramp is open the water can be pretty tough for kayakers. When the water is down we have caught a TON of fish from this launch. Fish the hydros across from the ramp for sauger, hybrids, and even smallmouth. You can drift back from the hydros and drop a dead..."
Hobie "Pro Angler 12"

"At the Hobie Bass Open on Kentucky Lake earlier this month I was able to finally fish out of the Hobie Pro Angler (PA) 12. I’ve pedaled and paddled it twice at Outdoor Retailer but never got a chance to fish out of it for a full review. There wasn’t much I didn’t like about the larger Pro Angler 14 and there wasn’t much I didn’t like about the PA 12. There were only a few dislikes about the..."

"Time was, “getting away” meant leaving all the conveniences and technology of home behind and communing with your inner Thoreau. Not so much these days, it seems. Our smartphone tethers to civilization seem to stretch as cell and data coverage improves, and we rely more and more on a plethora of apps and services to get through the day. Two things happen when you get away from the power lines. First, it gets dark - in most places,..."
