  • Extreme Kayak Fishing Summer Slam, Part Two

    It was a calm, perfect morning in Pompano Beach on August 16 as anglers kick started their day with coffee and doughnuts provided by Dandee Doughnuts. The sun slowly crept over the horizon while each angler grabbed their kayak and ran to the water’s edge. The sight of 108 kayak anglers hitting the surf at the same time resembles a traffic jam during rush hour on I-95.  Read More
  • Lessons From My First River Tourney

    In early August I joined 30 other kayak anglers on, what for me, was a completely new type of adventure. The North Texas Kayak Bass Fishing group held a river tournament on the Brazos River and it turned out to be a great learning experience for me. Read More
  • What the heck is an FUD? - Part 2

    How many times have you asked yourself, “Why didn't I think of that?!” That's pretty much how I feel about the FUDs I just had the thrill of testing! Ok, so maybe not a thrill, but being a girl and all, it is pretty cool being able to relieve yourself standing up or kneeling, without soaking your pants or having pee run down your leg. Read More
  • Paddling Destination - Okefenokee

    Many paddlers have places that they count the days until they can return. It may be because the fishing was phenomenal, or the scenery was breathtaking... a multitude of reasons. Anyone who has spent time around me knows I have a love for the Okefenokee Swamp. Every time I paddle the dark tannic acid-stained water, it gets harder for me to leave. There is something for everyone in the swamp, whether they are paddlers, explorers, fishermen, or birdwatchers. If you enjoy adventure, you will fall in love with this wild place. Read More

Reviewed by Greg Becker
"As much as I love 7’6”and 8’ spinning rods for flats fishing from my kayak, I’ve experienced two issues. The rod butts tend to get in the way when casting from a low seated position, and the leverage of the longer rod takes its toll on muscles and joints after hours of casting and “walking the dog” with a topwater plug. Enter Ohero Fishing’s new 7’ “Carbonado” series rods, specifically designed for kayak fishing. When I first spoke with..."

"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..."

"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.
