Kayak Fishing Ultimate Resource

  • Waterproofing Connectors

    Water, salt, dirt, and corrosion are the worst components for damaging your cable connectors. Unlike a motor boat where the cable connectors are typically protected from most of the harsh weather conditions, kayaks are completely exposed. Taking salty waves over our bows landing on sandy beaches and constantly getting rained on are routine. For a minimal cost you can protect your cable connectors to obtain the maximum lifespan out of these expensive cables. Read More
  • A pair of aces for targeting laydowns

    Laydowns are prime largemouth bass habitat year round. They provide shade, shelter, concealment for ambushing prey, and food in the form of crustaceans, insect larvae, fish fry and other animals that seek refuge. Normally laydowns are present in man-made reservoirs, but also to a lesser degree in natural lakes. Laydowns are sunken trees that died after flooding, that somehow were artificially located to provide cover, or were located on the shoreline and died or were cut down.  Read More
  • 2015 Homer (AK) Winter King Salmon Derby

    This was the 22nd annual derby for winter kings in Homer, AK. Exceptional weather, road conditions, and number of fish attracted a record crowd. 1,324 anglers on 386 vessels caught 590 King Salmon. All those numbers shattered previous records. Anglers were competing for the top prize of $27,762, plus side bets totalling nearly $25,000 more dollars, making that single fish worth over $50,000! Read More
  • Flamingo Boondoggle – Snake Bight

    At the Boondoggle in Merritt Island in October, 2014 it was announced that the President’s Day Boondoggle would be in the Everglades National Park at Flamingo, FL. This Boondoggle was some fishing, maybe some catching, adult beverage drinking, socializing from campsite to campsite, and a potluck on Sunday evening. I started making plans to fish the Everglades.

  • Soft Stick Baits for Big Bass

    Soft stick baits - the original was the Yamamoto “Senko” - catch lots of bass. I will give some common rigging techniques, and discuss catching big bass with a stick bait. Using a stick bait during pre-spawn, spawn, and post-spawn has helped catch some monster bass the past several seasons. Read More
  • Wilderness Systems Expands Their Pro Staff

  • Lost Your Mojo?

    Chances are that if you've been fishing for any amount of time, or perhaps even if you're a new angler, you've hit some dry spells when it comes to catching fish. After all, we do call it "fishing". If we were always successful we would surely call it "catching"! Read More

Stohlquist "Fisherman" PFD
 
5.0
"I’ve used the Stohlquist Fisherman PFD for over 2 years and have nothing but compliments about it. #1 it is comfortable, if a PFD is not comfortable you will not wear it. The Fisherman has a high back which allows me to sit comfortable in Jackson, Native, Hobie, and Wilderness framed seats. The sides and lower back are vented so you don’t feel like your roasting in an oven when wearing it on a hot summer day...."
Malibu "Mini X"

"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..."

Lake not far from Lafayette, LA. Famous for the wildlife and scenery, photographers are frequent visitors. The lake is home to the usual South Louisiana freshwater species. Please Note: sections of the lake/swamp are closed during certain months due to alligator mating and hatching season. There are usually signs up informing visitors when those times are..
