Personal views and rants about kayak fishing and more by YakAngler.com's founders and pro team members.

As the sport of kayak fishing continues to grow in the Midwest, Michigan has been void of a sound tournament series to date. That is until 2016.  Both the Michigan Kayak Fishing Series and KATS - Midwest will give kayak anglers in Southwest and Southeast Michigan, several options to participate.  The MKFS kicks off on May 7th on Gull Lake,…

Those "Outrageous" Goals

Written by
Each year we seem to want a renewel of our efforts by setting new goals or resolutions.  We are excited to set them and a lot of times they disappear into the busy lifestyle that soon overtakes us.  My kids and I usually set an "outrageous" goal each year.  One of my sons set a goal to make 50,000 shots…
Just who are these guys they call the "Corn Coast Anglers?"  We know they are from the Eastern Nebraska area for sure but how do they catch so many BIG fish? Many would say their time on the water and others might say it was luck.  Luck is far from this painted picture as this group consistently brings in so…

The Buff.  An integral accessory to the modern day kayak fisherman.  A few years ago my son CJ and I received the YakAngler buff.  We noticed them on the Survivor Series shows and were always intrigued by them.  We never thought we need them as much as we do today!  They have multiple uses such as protecting your face, ears,…

"Bond" Time

Written by
It was a typical early spring day here in Southwest Nebraska.  The air was cool from the front and snow shower that passed the night before.  The crappie bite had been pretty good earlier in the week but the cold temps that hit us this week would make the bite very slow.  My son CJ and I launched just after…

Humility Learned the Hard Way

Written by
Humility comes upon us in a variety of ways. Often, it is our arrogance crashing down upon our heads. Sometimes it is just an unfortunate event that teaches us the deepest of lessons. Although the 2014 tournament season on the River Bassin Trail brought me angling success and four new personal records for bass, it served some mighty, heaping helpings…

Kayak Storage

Written by
Recently I have been asked a few times about how I store my kayak. Furthermore, I have seen a few posts about this topic on social media. It is because of this I decided to write an article showing how I store my kayak. I am not saying it is the best way or the only way but simply saying…

Cold Water Cranks

Written by
Tis' the season for cold water.  While most fishermen have put their kayaks away for the winter some are still out getting the most out of the low percentage of open water left in the northern states.  Southwest Nebraska is no exception.  The water is cold and some waters frozen over but there are a few spring fed lakes that…
