  • Thoughts on the Thresher 155

    Wilderness Systems introduced a new kayak for 2015 that leaned its tendencies towards former models rather than progressive, wider styles. The Thresher was designed to have offshore and big water speed like its older brother the Tarpon 160 but with several new twists and added stability. After a couple of weeks, the following are my thoughts. Read More

  • Fall Fishing is On Fire!

    Fall Bite is On! Here in the Lowcountry of South Carolina, the fall fishing season is in full-swing. Falling water temperatures have set the inshore species, such as redfish and trout, into a feeding frenzy as they bulk up for the colder winter months. Read More
  • Working with the Wind

    Before I ever load up my kayak to hit the water, I always check the weather and wind forecast. Unlike our powerboat brethren, we have no trolling motor or outboard to prevent the wind from pushing us around. That burden lies solely on our paddle, pedals, or anchor system. Read More
  • Three Techniques Everyone Should Try

      Almost any fisherman you talk to has a confidence bait. Give them two hours to catch a fish on a lake they have never fished and usually, the first thing they throw will be the confidence bait. I have one. It's a four inch soft plastic from Hag's Tornado Baits, the F4. People who have fished with me know I throw this bait a lot. I really like two colors but the bait is the same (Watermelon/Chartreuse and Purple Haze for those wanting to know). Read More

"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..."

"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.
