Getting Sticky

Written by
When the fishing gets epic - it’s time to be getting sticky. Epic, once in the a lifetime fish are just that… a once in a lifetime opportunity.  How many of us have had that OIAL fish take our bait or fly, gotten her close to the boat or shoreline - only to watch the beastie swim away? That is…
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…

The Quest for Kayak Flathead - II

Written by

The Quest for Kayak Flathead

Written by
  Prologue  One of my current yakangling goals is to catch and land a trophy flathead catfish. I thought it might be interesting to simply chronicle my quest, sharing my research, my efforts, my results, etc. I started this pursuit last season, so I'll recap from the beginning and catch up to this present season.    Backstory My history is primarily bass…
