One of the things that I love about fishing in general and about kayak angling specifically, is the problem solving. Each day and each location are full of constantly changing variables that make each situation unique. That means that there's always some amount of on-the-spot problem solving to be done. But even beyond that, there are larger problem solving opportunities that come with the…

2015 New Species

Written by
The 2015 fishing season was a good one for me. The kayak fishing season for me started in April when the ice came off the lakes and continued up until November. I was able to get into four new species which I had never landed before from my kayak. Those species are as follows:

Spring Crappie Fishing

Written by
Crappie get targeted often during the ice fishing season in Minnesota and then get overlooked during the open water months. Minnesota is home to both species of Crappie (White and Black) but the Black Crappie is more commonly found here. My favorite time to fish for big Crappie is a month or so after the ice out. As the ice…

The Quest for Kayak Flathead - II

Written by
So with my last post I sort of went on at length about the process I went through to determine what stretch of which river was going to be the starting point for my quest. It was a lot to wade through, but it was an important phase, and getting past it gets us closer to the good stuff.   The smaller tributary…

The Quest for Kayak Flathead

Written by
  Prologue  One of my current yakangling goals is to catch and land a trophy flathead catfish.

Kayak Fishing Clooper Lake, Maryland

Written by
The other week I volunteered as a guide for another Saturday event for the Maryland chapter of Heroes on the Water (HOW). This event was held on Clopper Lake, part of Seneca Creek State Park in Gaithersburg, MD.   My Friday night routine was the same as for any other kayak fishing excursion: prep rods and reels, inventory and select…

Trussum Pond, DE

Written by
    While down in Fenwick Island, DE last weekend I was able to do some kayak fishing at one of my favorite locations - Trussum Pond. My uncle and I managed to get out for a couple of hours.  The weather was hot and humid and the bite was slow, but we still had a great time and caught…

Bed Extender - Another Option

Written by
Even with a safety flag attached, I have always worried someone (not paying attention) would make my Cuda a little shorter, especially in low light hours.  In my past life, I was a fabricator by trade.  Luckily, I still have access to the shop that I worked at; I’m able to play around with some ideas I have. Most states…
