  • Smallies on Swimbaits - Day 2

    With the first day of my swimbait-smallmouth trip down, we crashed at a cheap motel and spent the remainder of the night huddled over smart phones pouring over Google Maps. We had a plan in place, but wanted to extend our float option for this final leg. The tricky part of digital scouting is that just because the road runs along the river doesn’t mean that you can get to the water easily or legally. Read More

  • Destination - Flamingo, FL

    This piece could have been titled “Destination Everglades” but the Everglades are so vast and widespread I hope to add a few more of these articles for other parts in the future. I had wanted to do an Everglades trip for as long as I could remember, and when the Boondoggle announcement was made for Flamingo I knew it was meant for me. Read More
  • YakAngler's Inside and Out - Episode 1

    “YakAngler’s Inside and Out” - What is it? What does it mean? Why are we doing it? These are the questions that came to mind when we started the long journey to develop this series. It all started at the Kayak Fishing Boondoggle™, when Adam Hayes, Mark Watanabe, and I discussed what we could do to promote the sport we all love and show why we love it so much. Read More

  • Sheepshead Fishing Tips

  • Smallies on Swimbaits - Day 1

    As a teacher with summers off, I used to spend at least three or four days a week on the water. That gave me so much time to get pictures, video, try out new techniques, and really key into what the fish were doing in my local bodies of water. Adulthood, home ownership, and holding my son out of daycare to be a full-time parent during the summer has cut into my fishing time, so I may only get on the water once every couple of weeks.

Fenix "HL55" high-intensity waterproof headlamp
 
5.0
"When it comes to launching or recovering the kayak in the dark, it seems like I go through two or three headlamps a year. I’m not easy on gear, plus I’m always looking for newer/better/brighter. I’ll squash one and break it, or waterproof isn’t REALLY waterproof and the salt water takes its toll. I think I have found a lifetime headlamp in the Fenix HL55. As LED technology has continued to improve and drop in price, the brighter Cree-based..."
McAlpine Dam Harrison Ave Ramp
 
4.0
"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..."
